MedQ Smart Pill box Means Strength
Seniors Who Don’t Get Enough Vitamin D are 77% Weaker.
A study measured the amount of vitamin D in 100 college athletes. They tested the levels of strength in the athletes. The study was with three simple tests.
- First, How high they could jump
- Second, How far the could jump
- The maximum weight they could squat
The normal level of Vitamin D in your blood is 72 nanomoles per liter of blood. Blood test showed that 30% had levels below the 72 minimum. The people with low Vitamin had reduced levels of strength. Vitamin D supplements could instantly fix this problem in lost strength.
- First of all, They were able to squat 77% less
- Second of all, They ran 18% slower
- Third of all, They Jumped 15% lower,
- Finally, Distance jumps were 80% shorter
Why the decrease in strength and power? Studies have shown American’s vitamin D intake is lower than needed for optimal health. Vitamin D helps muscle let go of calcium better during the muscle contraction process. This leads to faster and more powerful contractions in the muscles. Experts such as Dr Oz, recommend y 2000 IU per day for the best health. Sunlight is a main source of Vitamin D
