Vitamin D reduces death rate

According to a new study, published in the European Journal of Clinical Nutrition in July, doubling serum levels of vitamin D could increase life expectancy by a two years. Vitamin D is regarded as a necessary nutrient for the prevention of several health conditions, including cardiovascular disease, respiratory infections and diseases and diabetes. However, while our bodies manufacture vitamin D on exposure to the sun, vitamin D levels in the UK can often be lacking during the winter months, when we don’t get the exposure we need. Therefore, supplementing with vitamin D is often a good way for us to maintain optimum vitamin D levels all year round.
