VITAMIN D3 ENHANCES CANCER SURVIVAL, IMMUNITY, DECREASES GROWING PAINS AND DRY EYES
Lawrenceville, NJ (Dr. Simone) – Vitamin D3 is quite remarkable, it:
1) Extends cancer survival. Considering all other risk factors for patients with Hodgkin’s cancer, vitamin D deficiency independently decreased overall survival. The normal range of vitamin D is between 30 and 100 nano grams per milliliter (ng/ml). Patients with Hodgkin’s disease who have vitamin D levels less than 30 had the highest risk of relapse and early death. Vitamin D deficiency has been known to predict a poor outcome for many other cancers as well. (European Hematology Association 2018 Congress. Abstract S111, June 16, 2018).
2) Women with Cervical Intraepithelial Neoplasia who took Vitamin D3 50,000 IU every two weeks for 6 months had more regression of their cancer than those who did not (85% vs 54%) ( https://link.springer.com/article/10.1007/s12672-016-0278-x)
4) Decreases “Growing Pains” when given for 4 to 6 weeks to children whose vitamin D3 blood level was between 10 and 30 ng/ml https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/24633492
5) Decreases Dry Eye Syndrome when given for 2 to 10 weeks to adults whose vitamin D3 blood level was 10 ng/ml. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/27698364
Dr. Simone Recommendation: Take as much vitamin D3 that you need to get your blood level between 80 and 100 ng/ml.
