Both Easy and Beneficial to Raise Vitamin D Levels

It is a world-wide epidemic: low vitamin D levels. 14% of the world population has poor vitamin D levels. (1) One study reports that it affects 1 billion people 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 taken. Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology encourages our Plymouth chiropractic patients to check and improve as necessary their vitamin D levels. Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology is certain that positive health benefits will ensure from this effort.

DISEASES LINKED TO LOW VITAMIN D LEVELS

A widespread vitamin D deficiency is associated with many diseases. The incidence of cancers like breast, colorectal, kidney, lung, and pancreatic is related to 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 plays a key role in calcium homeostasis, skeletal metabolism, and the function of immune, cardiovascular and reproductive systems. (2) Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo is also research-connected 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) Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology notes that this is interesting as these two conditions are also known to be affected by vitamin D status as well. Plymouth chiropractic care at Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology benefits Plymouth 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 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 lessens symptoms of neuropathic pain. (5) Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology acknowledges how these benefits are worth the work our Plymouth chiropractic patients would take on 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 those with levels of more than 20 ng/L. Both saw their vitamin D levels raise. The elevation was seen within the first 30 days of the study for those taking calcium plus vitamin D. An interesting side finding in this study: It’s difficult to get people to do what is recommended! Only 67 of the 106 study women took the recommended supplements for the three months of the study!
