Vitamin D Linked to Improved Quality of Life for Those over 50

Dr. Arash Bereliani, the board-certified physician and founder of the IV Therapy Center of Beverly Hills, explains a recent study showing the importance of vitamin D for people over 50.

A recent study published in the journal Quality of Life Research suggests that older patients with higher levels of vitamin D will experience a better quality of life. This quality of life includes more mobility, better ability to perform daily tasks, and less anxiety and depression. The study was conducted by researchers at the University of Alberta’s School of Public Health.

“We’ve known for a long time that vitamin D is vitally important to our bodies,” said Dr. Arash Bereliani, founder of the IV Therapy Center of Beverly Hills. “This study confirms that and goes on to show how important vitamin D is for overall health and happiness, especially in middle-age adults.”

Where Does Vitamin D Come From?

“The majority of our vitamin D intake comes from the sun,” explained Dr. Bereliani. “While it appears naturally in some foods, this typically accounts for a small amount of what we need.”

When the body doesn’t get enough vitamin D a number of subtle but harmful symptoms can result, including cognitive impairment and an increased risk of dying from cardiovascular disease.

Because of this, it is important that patients are aware of the potential for vitamin D deficiency. Common causes of low levels of vitamin D include:

  • Not getting enough sunlight, which is especially common in office workers
  • Not eating enough foods with vitamin D, such as eggs, fish, and cheese
  • Having certain gastrointestinal problems that prevent your body from absorbing vitamin D from food
  • Having kidney problems that prevent the body from converting vitamin D
  • Obesity

Vitamin D Injections

If you do suffer from a deficiency of vitamin D, the solution might require more than just a day in the sun or changes to your diet.

Vitamin D injections offer a high-dose, targeted amount of vitamin D that is specially designed to help those who are lacking,” said Dr. Bereliani. “These injections are highly effective for people of all ages, but as you can see from this study, adults over 50 can really benefit."

In addition to offering vitamin D injections, the IV Therapy Center of Beverly Hills offers a wide range of intravenous vitamins and minerals, including vitamin C, MSM, and glutathione. IV therapy and injections can be used to treat a broad variety of conditions. Some of the most common are fatigue, malabsorption, cold, flu, and certain neurological conditions.
