Vitamin D COPD Natural Remedy

The natural health researchers at Institute for Vibrant Living (IVL) are investigating natural remedies available for COPD and related lung ailments. Here is their latest report:

 

With over 300 million people worldwide affected by asthma and other pulmonary disorders, it has become important to determine if there are preventative measures that can be taken to ensure healthy lungs. 

The benefits of vitamin D are numerous, including enhancement of blood calcium levels, cancer prevention and improvement in bone structure.

There is also growing evidence in scientific circles that vitamin D may also boost lung health.

 

Easier Breathing with COPD?

Research presented at the 105th International Conference of the American Thoracic Society disclosed a new method by which vitamin D may slow or possibly stop the development of asthma and COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease).

Scientists from the University of Pennsylvania explained how calcitriol (a form of vitamin D) can reduce the growth of “airway smooth muscle,” a problem found in those with COPD and asthma, which results in decreased lung capacity over time.

The lung cells of 12 asthmatic and healthy volunteers were subjected to a potent corticosteroid and calcitriol, both of which are known to help reduce inflammation in the lungs. 

The researchers found that the corticosteroid, a commonly used asthma treatment, had very little effect on the growth of “airway smooth muscle.” Conversely, the benefits of vitamin D (calcitriol) on the growth of “airway smooth muscle” were significant. 

 

Hope is on the Horizon

There is hope within the medical community that vitamin D therapy may be helpful in the management of COPD, based on its promising anti-inflammatory properties.

An article in the February 2009 issue of the Archives of Internal Medicine examined the vitamin D intake of 883 persons, 12 years of age and older, over a period of six years.

A correlation was found that people with the lowest intake of vitamin D contracted the most upper respiratory tract infections (URTIs).  

As vitamin D intake increased, the incidence of URTIs lessened.  It is worthy to note however, that a recent shorter-in-duration study did not show a change in URTIs with vitamin D supplementation. 

More research is needed to help define the best dosage which will provide the most benefits of vitamin D supplements.

 

Symptoms of Vitamin D Deficiency

Vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin often nicknamed the “sunshine vitamin” because it is produced in the body as a result of exposure to sunlight. 

Low vitamin D levels can trigger:

chronic fatigue,

depression,

unexplained weight loss,

diabetes,

stroke,

heart disease,

osteoporosis.

 

Sources of Vitamin D

Spending more time in the sun on a regular basis may increase levels in the body, but a lack of vitamin D can still be found among people living in warm climates.

In addition, too much sun can increase your risk for skin cancer, so it is important to use sunscreen after 15 to 20 minutes of exposure. 

You can also boost your intake of vitamin D by eating these foods:

eggs,

cod liver oil,

salmon,

tuna fish,

vitamin D-enriched products like: milk, orange juice and yogurt.

 

Getting Enough Vitamin D

Vitamin D can also be ingested in the form of a supplement, and dosage recommendations vary depending on age. People under age 50 should take 5 micrograms per day, those who are 51-70 years need 10 micrograms daily and folks over 70 should take 15 micrograms per day. 

A great source of this critical vitamin can be found in Liquid Vitamin 528 from the Institute for Vibrant Living. It features 1252 IU of Vitamin D3 as Cholecalciferol (313% of the daily requirement) and best of all, it delivers it to the body in a purified bio-photon restructured water base. (Simply put – it’s super bio-absorbable.)

With vitamin D’s promising research in the news so much lately, don’t you think it makes good sense for you and your family to add a quality liquid vitamin supplement to your diet?

You bet it does!
