One way to combat arthritis joint pain is to make sure you're getting enough vitamin D, which can be deficient in people who take oral steroids often prescribed for arthritis.

Here are four ways vitamin D can help patients with joint and arthritis pain.

1. Vitamin D helps regulate the immune system. Since rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune condition, keeping the immune system happy and healthy may aid in arthritis prevention. “Studies have found that women with the highest levels of vitamin D are 30 percent less likely to develop rheumatoid arthritis than women with lowest level of vitamin D,” nutritionist Karen Langston told the Arthritis Foundation.

2. Vitamin D has anti-inflammatory properties, according to WebMD, which may help with joint pain attributed to arthritis. It also works with calcium to help strengthen bones and teeth.

3. Taking vitamin D may be a more natural way to help those who are taking narcotic pain medications. Researchers at the Mayo Clinic in a March 2009 study noted patients who were vitamin D deficient "were taking narcotic pain drugs required nearly twice as much medication to control their pain as did patients with adequate D levels," WebMD said.

4. Vitamin D has been proven to improve energy levels
, which means patients can be more active. That may lead to weight loss, which is helpful for painful joints, in addition to general physical activity benefits the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says "can reduce pain and improve function, mobility, mood, and quality of life for most adults with many types of arthritis including osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, fibromyalgia, and lupus."
