Low Vitamin D and Fibroids

Many women suffer the pain and excess bleeding associated with uterine fibroids; A recent study has suggested that low Vitamin D in the body can lead to a 32% increase in uterine fibroids. Vitamin D deficiency has long been associated with headaches, high blood pressure and fatigue, but this is the first time there has been a connection with uterine fibroids. I have always recommended that my patients try to get fifteen minutes of sun exposure daily, but with the concerns for skin cancer, few people sit in the sun without sunscreen. And while you need the sunscreen to protect your skin, it also blocks the formation of Vitamin D, which requires direct contact on bare skin. In the northern hemisphere, that becomes more of a challenge, as there are many months with very little sun. The solution is a vitamin D supplement. Not all supplements, however, are the same. When I choose a Vitamin D supplement, I like to look for on that has the best carrier molecule, coconut oil medium chain triglycerides, or MCT’s, to maximize absorption. D3 is itself the best absorbed form of Vitamin D and is made from the wool of sheep. When sunlight hits the sheep’s wool, Vitamin D3 is produced. I recommend my patients take between 1000 – 3000 IU’s daily. Taking adequate amounts of my D3 on a daily basis can decrease your chances of developing painful Uterine Fibroids, as well as a host of other health problems. Please leave me your questions and comments here, let’s use this as a forum to continue the conversation about good health. It lies in your hands. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC6073230/
