Both Easy and Beneficial to Raise Vitamin D Levels

Vitamin D deficiency is a worldwide epidemic.. 14% of the world population has poor vitamin D levels. (1) One study reports that it affects 1 billion of us worldwide. (2) Low vitamin D status is linked to a wide range of diseases. Improving vitamin D levels is beneficial and easy…if vitamin D supplementation is followed. New Roads Chiropractic Center encourages our New Roads chiropractic patients to know and work to raise as necessary their vitamin D levels. New Roads Chiropractic Center is sure that positive health benefits will result from this effort.

DISEASES LINKED TO LOW VITAMIN D LEVELS

A rampant vitamin D deficiency is associated with many diseases. The incidence of cancers like breast, colorectal, kidney, lung, and pancreatic is associated with low vitamin D levels. Diabetes, rickets, rheumatic arthritis, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer diseases, benign paroxysmal positional vertigo, osteomalacia, osteoporosis, and fractures in adults are too. (1, 2, 3) Vitamin D participates importantly in calcium homeostasis, skeletal metabolism, and the function of immune, cardiovascular and reproductive systems. (2) Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo is also research-related to vitamin D status and bone mineral density. (3) It responds well to vitamin D3 supplementation. Checking the occurrence of osteopenia/osteoporosis in these patients is the test as to the effectiveness of the treatment. (4) New Roads Chiropractic Center notes that this is interesting as these two conditions are also identified as being affected by vitamin D status as well. New Roads chiropractic care at New Roads Chiropractic Center benefits New Roads chiropractic patients with these conditions.

BENEFITS OF RAISING VITAMIN D LEVELS

Supplementing those who take antidepressants with vitamin D is shown to improve the antidepressive effect. Researchers suggest that vitamin D may be beneficial for other such conditions beyond just depression like schizophrenia, cognitive disturbances, attention deficit disorder, and autism. (1) Giving a daily equal dose of vitamin D (1000 units/kg I.P.) to post-surgical back patients for 3 weeks straight alleviates symptoms of neuropathic pain. (5) New Roads Chiropractic Center sees how these benefits are worth the effort our New Roads chiropractic patients would accept to raise low vitamin D levels.

HOW TO RAISE VITAMIN D LEVELS

A study of healthy young women revealed that taking calcium plus vitamin D (1500 IU) by those with less than 20ng/L or 800 IU of vitamin D by patients with levels of more than 20 ng/L. Both saw their vitamin D levels increase. The elevation was witnessed within the first 30 days of the study for those taking calcium plus vitamin D. A thought-provoking side finding in this study: It’s hard to get people to do what is recommended! Only 67 of the 106 study participants did what they were to do for the three months of the study!
