Vitamin D

Article from Medical News Today

Vitamin D is receiving its “day in the sun” recently as a result of conflicting scientific reports and inconsistent recommendations from health agencies about the health benefits of vitamin D. There are also discussions about the dietary requirement to support health benefits and the best sources of the nutrient for humans. Consumers and health professionals are confused! To shed light on the issues, Dietitians of Canada (DC) has released a review document that focuses on vitamin D recommendations to promote bone health from pregnancy to the senior years. It also addresses more recent research regarding non-bone functions of vitamin D, including prevention of cancer, rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis and type 1 and type-2 diabetes.
