Vitamin D3 is crucial in supporting the structure of the pelvic floor!
Vitamin D3 is ideal to be taken alongside your Kegel8® routine as it helps decrease pain sensitivity for chronic pain and protects against muscle wastage, helping the pelvic stay strong and healthy.
A study which took place at Botucatu Medical School at Sao Paulo State University in Brazil, found that consuming enough Vitamin D may be able to reverse the muscle loss that most women typically experience after they go through the menopause.
Vitamin D3 has been shown to increase skeletal muscle efficiency at adequate levels, the levator ani and the coccygeus pelvic floor muscles are skeletal muscles and are crucial to supporting the structure of the pelvic floor.
Pelvic floor musculature weakness can contribute to pelvic floor disorders such as urinary or faecal incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse.
A study by the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey has found that higher levels of vitamin D have a direct correlation to a decreased risk of any pelvic floor disorders. Dr Samuel Badalain (M.D; Ph.D; D.Med.Sc) explained that ‘a vitamin D deficiency has long been clinically associated with impaired muscle strength and loss of muscle mass’ and that the lowered vitamin D status can lead to many types of pelvic floor disorder, such as urinary/faecal incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse. Dr Badalain has commented on the need for further investigation on the great benefits of supplementing your vitamin D intake saying; ‘Given the increase in the number of patients with pelvic floor disorders, further evaluation of the road of vitamin D is warranted’.
Your pelvic floor is supported by many muscles and ligaments. Over time, a reduction in vitamin D depletes muscle mass and strength which eventually can lead to pelvic organ prolapse, this is where the pelvic organs descend out of the vagina or rectum. Supplementing your vitamin D intake along with living healthily can help to prevent this life-inhibiting condition.
The higher the Vitamin D levels the lower the levels of pelvic floor disorders!
Below is the clinical data to give you evidence that there is a direct correlation between low levels of Vitamin D and a weak pelvic floor!
If you or a member of your family fits one of the following categories and may be at risk of Vitamin D deficiency, have a chat with your GP and ask for advice on taking Vitamin D supplements:
- If you are pregnant and breastfeeding
- Babies and young children from 6 months to 5 years
- Elderly people, 65+
- If you don’t have much exposure to the sun
- If you have darker skin – it takes more time for your skin to produce Vitamin D unlike those with lighter skin
