Vitamin D has received a lot of press in recent days and is probably most well known for the role it plays in supporting bone health. It also plays an important role in cardiovascular and immune function, and promoting an overall sense of well-being. Vitamin D, also known as the “sunshine vitamin” is an essential vitamin that plays many important roles in the proper functioning of the body. Though classified as a vitamin, Vitamin D is actually a key regulatory hormone for calcium and bone metabolism. Adequate vitamin D status is essential for ensuring normal calcium absorption and maintenance of healthy calcium plasma levels.
Recent studies have shown that many people, especially the elderly, have a challenge in absorbing adequate levels of vitamin D from their normal diets and sunlight exposure. This underscores the potential benefit of Vitamin D supplementation.
Although limited by the relatively small size of the study, the protective effects of vitamin D observed in this study are consistent for several independent measures that vitamin D reduces the risk of breast cancer.
