Both Easy and Beneficial to Raise Vitamin D Levels

It’s a world-wide epidemic: low vitamin D levels. 14% of the world population has poor vitamin D levels. (1) One published report states that it affects 1 billion people worldwide. (2) Low vitamin D status is linked to a wide range of diseases. Bettering vitamin D levels is beneficial and easy…if vitamin D supplementation is taken. Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center encourages our Pensacola chiropractic patients to check and work to raise as necessary their vitamin D levels. Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center is confident that positive health benefits will follow from this effort.

DISEASES RELATED TO LOW VITAMIN D LEVELS

A rampant vitamin D deficiency is correlated with many diseases. The incidence of cancers like lung, pancreatic, colorectal, kidney, breast 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 as well. (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) Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center notes that this is interesting as these two conditions are also identified as being influenced by vitamin D status too. Pensacola chiropractic care at Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center benefits Pensacola chiropractic patients with these conditions.

BENEFITS OF IMPROVING VITAMIN D LEVELS

Supplementing those who take antidepressants with vitamin D is shown 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 equal dose of vitamin D (1000 units/kg I.P.) to post-surgical back patients on day one through day 21 eases symptoms of neuropathic pain. (5) Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center sees how these benefits are worth the effort our Pensacola chiropractic patients would accept to elevate poor vitamin D levels.

HOW TO RAISE VITAMIN D LEVELS

A study of healthy young women showed that consuming calcium plus vitamin D (1500 IU) by those with less than 20ng/L or 800 IU of vitamin D by patients with levels of greater than 20 ng/L. Both witnessed their vitamin D levels increase. The elevation was witnessed as early as the first month of the study for those taking calcium plus vitamin D. An interesting side observation in this study: It is difficult to get people to do what is suggested! Only 67 of the 106 study women did what they were to do for the 3 months of the study! (6)
