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 linked to a varied range of diseases. Bettering vitamin D levels is beneficial and easy…if vitamin D supplementation is followed. McMurray Chiropractic Solutions encourages our San Jose chiropractic patients to know and improve as necessary their vitamin D levels. McMurray Chiropractic Solutions is confident that positive health benefits will ensure from this effort.

DISEASES LINKED 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 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 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 effectiveness of the treatment. (4) McMurray Chiropractic Solutions notes that this is interesting as these two conditions are also known to be affected by vitamin D status as well. San Jose chiropractic care at McMurray Chiropractic Solutions benefits San Jose 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 propose 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 level dose of vitamin D (1000 units/kg I.P.) to post-surgical back patients for 3 weeks straight eases symptoms of neuropathic pain. (5) McMurray  Chiropractic Solutions acknowledges how these benefits are worth the work our San Jose chiropractic patients would take on to raise low vitamin D levels.

HOW TO RAISE VITAMIN D LEVELS

A study of healthy young women showed that taking 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 elevation was witnessed within the first 30 days of the study for those taking calcium plus vitamin D. An interesting side observation in this study: It is difficult to get people to do what is suggested! Only 67 of the 106 study participants followed the directions for the 3 months of the study! (6)
