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 of us worldwide. (2) Low vitamin D status is linked to a varied assortment of diseases. Bettering vitamin D levels is beneficial and easy…if vitamin D supplementation is followed. The Novelli Wellness Center encourages our Buffalo, NY chiropractic patients to check and work to raise as necessary their vitamin D levels. The Novelli Wellness Center is sure 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 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. Checking the occurrence of osteopenia/osteoporosis in these patients is the test as to the effectiveness of the treatment. (4) The Novelli Wellness Center notes that this is interesting as these two conditions are also identified as being affected by vitamin D status as well. Buffalo, NY chiropractic care at The Novelli Wellness Center benefits Buffalo, NY chiropractic patients with these conditions.

BENEFITS OF RAISING 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 equal 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) The Novelli Wellness Center acknowledges how these benefits are worth the effort our Buffalo, NY chiropractic patients would take on 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 those with levels of more than 20 ng/L. Both witnessed their vitamin D levels raise. The elevation was seen as early as the first month of the study for those taking calcium plus vitamin D. An interesting side observation in this study: It’s hard to get people to do what is suggested! Only 67 of the 106 study women followed the directions for the 3 months of the study! (6)
