A recent study also confirmed that there was a correlation between Inflammatory Bowel Disease sufferers who did not have enough vitamin D3 and bone diseases such as osteoperosis.
Dr. William D. Leslie from the University of Manitoba, Winnipeg, Canada, said “A higher incidence of osteoporosis and fractures is a recognized complication of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD),” and continued “Early optimization of vitamin D may help to prevent bone disease in inflammatory bowel disease.”
Inflammatory Bowel Disease, or spastic colon, is a bowel disorder that causes chronic abdominal pain, discomfort and bloating. The debilitating illness affects over 15% of the United States population and can be caused from a stressful life event or after an infection.
