Vitamin D and magnesium levels associated with myofascial pain and cancer risk

Posted on: August 9, 2017   by  Dr William Grant


A recent paper published in the Journal of the American College of Nutrition provided additional evidence regarding the importance of vitamin D and magnesium for chronic pain management and cancer prevention.[1]

Myofascial pain is a chronic disorder characterized by deep aching and point tenderness in the muscles due to repetitive muscle contraction, typically caused by emotional or physical stress. While most individuals have experienced muscle tension at some point, myofascial pain lingers or becomes more intense over time.

Research has shown that both vitamin D and magnesium deficiency are associated with myofascial pain. Additionally, myofascial pain has been linked with cancer development and mortality. Both vitamin D and magnesium play crucial roles in regulation of gene expression, pain management and cancer prevention, leading researchers to evaluate the role of magnesium and vitamin D deficiency in various health outcomes.

    Both Magnesium and Vitamin D can be taken internally and externally.
