Vitamin D inscription

The study which was published in the Journal of Endocrinology has it that the supplements used to treat Vitamin-D deficiency may also act as pain relievers.

According to the experts who carefully carried out the study, a good sleep together with taking vitamin D supplements can be beneficial in treating pain related to ailments like fibromyalgia, arthritis, menstrual cramps and even chronic back pain.

Vitamin D, also known as the sunshine vitamin, plays an important role by regulating the levels of calcium and phosphorus in our blood. The British Dietetics Association recommends about 15 minutes exposure thrice a week between 11 A.M to 3 P.M for your daily dose of Vitamin D.

Lack of sun exposure may lead to a Vitamin D deficiency that can be identified with symptoms like pain in bones or muscles, muscle cramps, day sleepiness and constant tiredness and fatigue. The treatment of this deficiency involved getting more Vitamin D through your diet and with the help of supplements. This new study suggests that these supplements may also be effective in effectiveness of pain management.

Apart from this study, other studies have shown that vitamin D can affect the body’s inflammatory response which also alter the sensation of pain. Researchers believe that if this simple approach is found to be effective it could reduce the burden of health services and also improve the lives of such patients.  For the study, the team analysed the most relevant studies that have examined the role of vitamin D in pain-related conditions or sleep disturbances.

 The results indicate that vitamin D levels may have an important role in the relationship between pain and sleep. According to researcher Monica Levy Andersen from Universidade Federal de Sao Paulo in Brazil, “it is necessary to understand the possible mechanisms involved in this relationship, including immunological and neurobiological pathways related to the inter-relationship between sleep, vitamin D and pain to find concrete evidence".

 Nevertheless, you can boost the level of vitamin D in your body system by spending some time in the sun daily, eat foods that are naturally rich in Vitamin D such as mushroom, eggs and fatty fish.
