Vertigo &
Vitamin D

Taking vitamin D and calcium may help prevent benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV).
BPPV is caused by tiny crystals in the inner ear getting dislodged. A sensation of spinning
and dizziness usually occurs with changes in your head’s position. In a recent study of 1,050
people with BPPV, researchers separated participants into an intervention or an observation
group. In the intervention group, 348 of the 500 people had low vitamin D. These people were
given supplemental vitamin D and calcium. After a year, the intervention group had 24% fewer
bouts of vertigo than the observation group.
