Curcumin May Help Promote Healthy Vitamin D Levels

Curcumin May Help Promote Healthy Vitamin D Levels

Previous research has found some evidence of a link between women who experience premenstrual syndrome (PMS) and severe menstrual cramps, and lower vitamin D levels. A new study has found that curcumin supplementation may help improve vitamin D levels in women with PMS and painful menstrual cramps.

Seventy-six women with an average age of 21 and a history of moderate to severe PMS and painful menstrual cramps participated in the study. They were given 500 mg of curcuminoid and 5 mg of piperine or a placebo. They took the supplements for 7 days before menstruation until 3 days after menstruation for 3 consecutive menstrual cycles.

The researchers measured serum vitamin D levels, renal function, and liver enzymes at baseline and at the end of the study period.

Participants in the curcumin group saw a significant increase in serum vitamin D levels compared to the placebo group. Specifically, levels in the supplement group increased from 12.8 ng/ml to 16.2 ng/ml. Participants in the supplement group also saw improvements in liver function enzymes.

The study was conducted by researchers from the Zahedan University of Medical Sciences. It was published online ahead of print on January 22, 2022 in the journal BMC Complementary Medicine and Therapies.

An earlier study found that supplementation with vitamin C may help alleviate some emotional PMS symptoms.
