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 connected to a varied assortment of diseases. Bettering vitamin D levels is beneficial and easy…if vitamin D supplementation is taken. Watertown Wellness Center encourages our Watertown chiropractic patients to check and improve as necessary their vitamin D levels. Watertown Wellness Center is sure that positive health benefits will ensure from this effort.

DISEASES RELATED 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 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. Checking the occurrence of osteopenia/osteoporosis in these patients is the test as to the success of the treatment. (4) Watertown Wellness Center notes that this is interesting as these two conditions are also known to be affected by vitamin D status too. Watertown chiropractic care at Watertown Wellness Center benefits Watertown 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 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 on day one through day 21 eases symptoms of neuropathic pain. (5) Watertown Wellness Center acknowledges how these benefits are worth the effort our Watertown chiropractic patients would accept to elevate poor 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 greater than 20 ng/L. Both saw their vitamin D levels increase. The rise was seen as early as the first month of the study for those taking calcium plus vitamin D. A thought-provoking side observation in this study: It’s hard to get people to do what is suggested! Only 67 of the 106 study participants followed the directions for the three months of the study!
