Vitamin D is back in the news again

19 May

Scientists have come out again with findings that Vitamin D promotes good health in many ways. But the study also found that breast cancer patients with low levels of vitamin D were much more likely to die of the disease or have it spread than patients getting enough of the nutrient, a study found — adding to evidence the “sunshine vitamin” has anti-cancer benefits. The results are sure to renew arguments about whether a little more sunshine is a good thing. The skin makes vitamin D from ultraviolet light. Too much sunlight can raise the risk of skin cancer, but small amounts “15 minutes or so a few times a week without sunscreen” may be beneficial, many doctors believe. While the vitamin is found in certain foods and supplements, most don’t contain the best form, D-3, and have only a modest effect on blood levels of the nutrient.

While for the general population taking extra vitamin D – 1000 mg is recommended during winter months, people with dark skin should take the amount all year round.
