    Benefits of Vitamin D Supplementation
    Joel M. Kauffman, Ph.D.
    Journal of American Physicians and Surgeons
    Volume 14 Number 2 - Summer 2009

    Clinical trials show that vitamin D supplementation at higher
    levels than previously recommended is beneficial for many
    conditions. It decreases the frequency of falls and fractures, helps
    prevent cardiovascular disease, and reduces symptoms of colds or
    influenza. Benefits are also seen in diabetes mellitus, multiple
    sclerosis, Crohn disease, pain, depression, and possibly autism.
    Sunlight does not cause an overdose of vitamin D production,
    and toxicity from supplementation is rare. Dose recommendations
    are increasing, but appear to be lagging the favorable trial results. A
    number of common drugs deplete vitamin D levels, and others may
    limit its biosynthesis from sunlight.
    People with adequate levels from sun exposure will not benefit
    from supplementation. While dietary intake is helpful,
    supplementation is better able to raise serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D ,
    the major circulating metabolite, to the level now thought adequate,
    30-50 ng/mL.
    Where there is inadequate daily sun exposure, oral doses of
    1,000-2,000 IU/d are now considered routine, with much higher
    doses (up to 50,000 IU) for rapid repletion now considered safe.

What If Vitamin D Deficiency Is a Cause of Autism?: Scientific American - 0 views

  •  
    A few researchers are turning their attention to the sunshine vitamin as a culprit, prompted by the experience of immigrants that have moved from their equatorial country to two northern latitude locations

    As evidence of widespread vitamin D deficiency grows, some scientists are wondering whether the sunshine vitamin-once only considered important in bone health-may actually play a role in one of neurology's most vexing conditions: autism.

    The idea, although not yet tested or widely held, comes out of preliminary studies in Sweden and Minnesota. Last summer, Swedish researchers published a study in Developmental Medicine and Child Neurology that found the prevalence of autism and related disorders was three to four times higher among Somali immigrants than non-Somalis in Stockholm. The study reviewed the records of 2,437 children, born between 1988 and 1998 in Stockholm, in response to parents and teachers who had raised concerns about whether children with a Somali background were overrepresented in the total group of children with autism

    Julie Matthews has devoted her life to finding ways to heal the devastating symptoms of autism.She's an autism nutrition specialist and a Defeat Autism Now!(DAN) practitioner who has written a must-read book for parents and caregivers or anyone who deals with autism.The book,Nourishing Hope for Autism: Nutrition Intervention for Healing Our Children,deals with the diet and nutrition aspect of successfully treating autism.Matthews'fascination with biochemistry and the mechanisms of the body led her to discover that most adults and children with ASD (autistic spectrum disorders) have imbalances in their body's chemistry.
