Both Easy and Beneficial to Raise Vitamin D Levels

It is a world-wide epidemic: vitamin D deficiency. 14 in every 100 people around the world 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 assortment of diseases. Bettering vitamin D levels is beneficial and easy…if vitamin D supplementation is followed. Amelia Chiropractic Clinic encourages our Fernandina Beach chiropractic patients to know and improve as necessary their vitamin D levels. Amelia Chiropractic Clinic is confident that positive health benefits will follow from this effort.

DISEASES RELATED TO LOW VITAMIN D LEVELS

A rampant vitamin D deficiency is associated 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-connected to vitamin D status and bone mineral density. (3) Vitamin D3 supplementation is effective in its care. Testing for the occurrence of osteopenia/osteoporosis in these patients is the test as to the effectiveness of the treatment. (4) Amelia Chiropractic Clinic notes that this is interesting as these two conditions are also identified as being influenced by vitamin D status as well. Fernandina Beach chiropractic care at Amelia Chiropractic Clinic benefits Fernandina Beach 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) Giving a daily equal dose of vitamin D (1000 units/kg I.P.) to post-surgical back patients for 3 weeks straight eases symptoms of neuropathic pain. (5) Amelia Chiropractic Clinic sees how these benefits are worth the effort our Fernandina Beach chiropractic patients would undertake to elevate low 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 saw their vitamin D levels raise. The rise was witnessed 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 suggested! Only 67 of the 106 study women took the recommended supplements for the 3 months of the study! (6)
