Both Easy and Beneficial to Raise Vitamin D Levels

Vitamin D deficiency is a worldwide epidemic.. 14 in every 100 people around the world has poor vitamin D levels. (1) One published report states that it affects 1 billion of us worldwide. (2) Low vitamin D status is linked to a wide assortment of diseases. Improving vitamin D levels is beneficial and easy…if vitamin D supplementation is followed. Layden Chiropractic encourages our Plainville chiropractic patients to know and improve as necessary their vitamin D levels. Layden Chiropractic is certain 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) Vitamin D3 supplementation is effective in its care. Checking the occurrence of osteopenia/osteoporosis in these patients is the test as to the effectiveness of the treatment. (4) Layden Chiropractic notes that this is interesting as these two conditions are also known to be affected by vitamin D status as well. Plainville chiropractic care at Layden Chiropractic benefits Plainville chiropractic patients with these conditions.

BENEFITS OF RAISING VITAMIN D LEVELS

Supplementing those who take antidepressants with vitamin D is documented to improve the antidepressive effect. Researchers propose that vitamin D may be beneficial for other such conditions beyond just depression like schizophrenia, cognitive disturbances, attention deficit disorder, and autism. (1) Providing a daily level dose of vitamin D (1000 units/kg I.P.) to post-surgical back patients for 3 weeks straight eases symptoms of neuropathic pain. (5) Layden Chiropractic sees how these benefits are worth the work our Plainville chiropractic patients would take on to raise poor vitamin D levels.

HOW TO RAISE VITAMIN D LEVELS

A study of healthy young women showed that taking calcium plus vitamin D (1500 IU) by those with less than 20ng/L or 800 IU of vitamin D by those with levels of more than 20 ng/L. Both witnessed their vitamin D levels increase. The rise was witnessed within the first 30 days of the study for those taking calcium plus vitamin D. A thought-provoking side observation in this study: It’s hard to get people to do what is recommended! Only 67 of the 106 study participants followed the directions for the 3 months of the study!
