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 connected to a wide assortment of diseases. Improving vitamin D levels is beneficial and easy…if vitamin D supplementation is followed. Tarrytown Chiropractic encourages our Tarrytown chiropractic patients to know and improve as necessary their vitamin D levels. Tarrytown 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 correlated 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 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) It responds well to vitamin D3 supplementation. Checking the occurrence of osteopenia/osteoporosis in these patients is the test as to the success of the treatment. (4) Tarrytown Chiropractic notes that this is interesting as these two conditions are also identified as being influenced by vitamin D status as well. Tarrytown chiropractic care at Tarrytown Chiropractic benefits Tarrytown chiropractic patients with these conditions.

BENEFITS OF IMPROVING 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 same dose of vitamin D (1000 units/kg I.P.) to post-surgical back patients on day one through day 21 lessens symptoms of neuropathic pain. (5) Tarrytown Chiropractic sees how these benefits are worth the effort our Tarrytown 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 consuming calcium plus vitamin D (1500 IU) by those with less than 20ng/L or 800 IU of vitamin D by those with levels of greater than 20 ng/L. Both witnessed their vitamin D levels increase. The rise was witnessed as early as the first month of the study for those taking calcium plus vitamin D. An interesting side finding in this study: It is 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)
