Vitamin D: Do You Know How Valuable It Is To Your Overall Health?

Vitamin D treatment can decrease knee osteoarthritis pain!

In a recent study, 107 knee OA patients with vitamin D deficiency (25-hydroxy-vitamin D ≤ 20 ng/ml) were randomized to receive oral vitamin D or placebo. Results at 12 months showed a statistically significant clinical benefit to vitamin D treatment in patients with knee OA in terms of decrease pain and improve function!

You can improve your vitamin D level naturally by getting enough sun exposure. Living in Northern California, where we are far enough from the equator, the sun intensity is not so strong. So, you can probably get more sun than you think!  Just don’t get sunburned!
