8 BENEFITS OF VITAMIN D SUPPORTED BY RESEARCH
1- VITAMIN D HELPING CONTROL BLOOD SUGAR AND INSULIN LEVELS.
Vitamin D has been shown to be as effective as prescription drugs in controlling blood sugar in children who are overweight and at high risk of diabetes. Catherine Peterson, professor of nutrition and exercise physiology and a University of Missouri researcher, says that by simply increasing Vitamin D intake, they saw that insulin levels decreased even without changes in nutrition and exercise levels. She adds that Vitamin D supplements should be used to control diabetes in obese patients.
2- VITAMIN D REDUCES BACK PAIN.
Back pain has become a universal epidemic. Studies conducted at the University of Minnesota show that people suffering from back pain have very low vitamin D levels. Vitamin D deficiency can especially lead to lower back pain.
3- VITAMIN D PROTECTS TEETH FROM CAVIES.
Research conducted at the University of Washington shows that vitamin D reduces tooth decay by 50%. Micheal Hollick, a professor at Boston University Medical Center, also says that these findings confirm the importance of vitamin D for dental health and states that the teeth of children with low vitamin D erupt late and decay easily.
4- VITAMIN D IS GIVEN TO INTENSIVE CARE PATIENTS.
Researchers in South Korea have found that vitamin D is effective in protecting patients undergoing neurological surgery from infection. They point out that vitamin D levels are very important, especially in neurological intensive care patients.
5- VITAMIN D GIVES MORE ENERGY.
Crohn’s disease can cause muscle weakness and fatigue. Researchers at Trinity College Dublin, Ireland, have found that vitamin D is the vitamin that restores energy, gets up and helps us hold on to life. Their study shows that the quality of life of Crohn’s patients given 2000 IU of vitamin D per day increases, many symptoms caused by the disease are relieved, and their mental energy increases.
6- VITAMIN D REDUCES THE RISK OF FIBROID.
Fibroids are non-cancerous uterine tumors, also called fibroids. It often causes pain and bleeding in premenopausal women and is the leading cause of hysterectomy (surgical removal of the uterus) in the United States. A study conducted at George Washington University shows that women with sufficient vitamin D levels are 32% less likely to develop fibroids than those with inadequate vitamin D levels. In this study, it was seen that those who spent more than one hour a day outdoors had a 40% lower risk of fibroid.
7- VITAMIN D DEFICIENCY CAUSES THE BRAIN TO AGING FASTER.
Vitamin D deficiency increases the risk of Alzheimer’s and reduces thinking ability. A French study shows that too little vitamin D intake is linked to an increased risk of Alzheimer’s. A study conducted in Minneapolis shows that the mental abilities of older women with very low vitamin D levels (less than 10 ng/ml) are impaired.
8- VITAMIN D REDUCES THE RISK OF CANCER BY HALF.
Researchers in Scotland found that vitamin D reduced the risk of death by 50% in people with colon cancer. Those with stage 2 cancer gained the greatest benefit from vitamin D. This study shows that 75% of patients with the highest levels of vitamin D were alive after 5 years. It has been observed that only 30% of the lowest ones can live this long.
