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 people worldwide. (2) Low vitamin D status is linked to a wide range of diseases. Bettering vitamin D levels is beneficial and easy…if vitamin D supplementation is followed. Cross Chiropractic Center encourages our Sandy Springs chiropractic patients to check and improve as necessary their vitamin D levels. Cross Chiropractic Center is confident that positive health benefits will result from this effort.

DISEASES LINKED TO LOW VITAMIN D LEVELS

A widespread 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 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) Cross Chiropractic Center notes that this is interesting as these two conditions are also identified as being affected by vitamin D status as well. Sandy Springs chiropractic care at Cross Chiropractic Center benefits Sandy Springs 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) Providing a daily equal 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) Cross Chiropractic Center sees how these benefits are worth the work our Sandy Springs chiropractic patients would accept to elevate low vitamin D levels.

HOW TO RAISE VITAMIN D LEVELS

A study of healthy young women revealed that consuming calcium plus vitamin D (1500 IU) by those with less than 20ng/L or 800 IU of vitamin D by patients 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 is hard to get people to do what is suggested! Only 67 of the 106 study women took the recommended supplements for the three months of the study! (6)
