Both Easy and Beneficial to Raise Vitamin D Levels

Vitamin D deficiency is a worldwide epidemic.. 14% of the world population has poor vitamin D levels. (1) One study reports that it affects 1 billion people worldwide. (2) Low vitamin D status is connected to a wide range of diseases. Bettering vitamin D levels is beneficial and easy…if vitamin D supplementation is taken. Aaron Chiropractic Clinic encourages our Fort Wayne chiropractic patients to check and improve as necessary their vitamin D levels. Aaron Chiropractic Clinic is confident that positive health benefits will ensure 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 too. (1, 2, 3) Vitamin D plays a key role 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) Vitamin D3 supplementation is effective in its care. Testing for the occurrence of osteopenia/osteoporosis in these patients is the test as to the success of the treatment. (4) Aaron Chiropractic Clinic notes that this is interesting as these two conditions are also known to be influenced by vitamin D status as well. Fort Wayne chiropractic care at Aaron Chiropractic Clinic benefits Fort Wayne 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 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) Aaron Chiropractic Clinic sees how these benefits are worth the work our Fort Wayne chiropractic patients would undertake to elevate low 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 more than 20 ng/L. Both witnessed their vitamin D levels increase. The elevation was seen within the first 30 days 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 recommended! Only 67 of the 106 study participants followed the directions for the three months of the study!
