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 study reports that it affects 1 billion of us worldwide. (2) Low vitamin D status is linked to a varied range of diseases. Improving vitamin D levels is beneficial and easy…if vitamin D supplementation is followed. Manahawkin Chiropractic Center encourages our Manahawkin chiropractic patients to know and improve as necessary their vitamin D levels. Manahawkin Chiropractic Center is confident that positive health benefits will follow from this effort.

DISEASES LINKED 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 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 as well. (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. Testing for the occurrence of osteopenia/osteoporosis in these patients is the test as to the effectiveness of the treatment. (4) Manahawkin Chiropractic Center notes that this is interesting as these two conditions are also identified as being influenced by vitamin D status too. Manahawkin chiropractic care at Manahawkin Chiropractic Center benefits Manahawkin 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 same dose of vitamin D (1000 units/kg I.P.) to post-surgical back patients on day one through day 21 alleviates symptoms of neuropathic pain. (5) Manahawkin Chiropractic Center acknowledges how these benefits are worth the work our Manahawkin chiropractic patients would undertake 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 patients with levels of greater than 20 ng/L. Both saw their vitamin D levels raise. The rise was seen in the first month of the study for those taking calcium plus vitamin D. A thought-provoking side observation in this study: It’s difficult to get people to do what is recommended! Only 67 of the 106 study women did what they were to do for the three months of the study!
