Previously studies have established that vitamin D can affect the body’s inflammatory response which also alter the sensation of pain. Researchers believe that if this simple approach is found to be effective it could reduce the burden of health services and also improve the lives of such patients.
For the study, the team analysed the most relevant studies that have examined the role of vitamin D in pain-related conditions or sleep disturbances. The results indicate that vitamin D levels may have an important role in the relationship between pain and sleep. “It is necessary to understand the possible mechanisms involved in this relationship, including immunological and neurobiological pathways related to the inter-relationship between sleep, vitamin D and pain to find concrete evidence,” said researcher Monica Levy Andersen from Universidade Federal de Sao Paulo in Brazil.You can some simple things to prevent a Vitamin-D deficiency like spend some time in the sun daily, eat foods that are naturally rich in Vitamin D such as mushroom, eggs and fatty fish and get your Vitamin D levels checked regularly.
