Vitamin D Research, Studies and Trials

Researching information on Vitamin D can be very time consuming. I am very intrigued by all of the current studies that have yet to be concluded. I decided to put together a list of some I found that we can watch and see what the findings are.

From what we have seen, we already know that Vitamin D levels and Vitamin D Deficiency have a profound effect on our health and on the efficiency of how our bodies function. It seems that for many, more proof is needed so thankfully, there are plenty of studies in the works.

Caution should be exercised  when researching Vitamin D studies on the internet. We don't always know who is behind a study or how it is being funded. Some studies are paid for in order to find a specific conclusion. A company may pay for a study so that it will find in their favor. In order to do this, the research may not include all parameters. For example, if you only give participants a very low amount of Vitamin D3, a study may conclude that Vitamin D3 is not helpful.

  1. Thanks for providing these resources.Vitamin D is must for the immune system of the human body. The lack of vitamin D may cause many incurable diseases. Many natural as well as human made supplements are available to overcome this. Ex. fish oil, code live oil, eggs etc.

  2. I have just been diagnosed with a low Vitamin D count (17.5). My Doctor has prescribed I start taking vitamin D3 2000 units a day. Looking at what I already take; Citracal with D, which has 500 IU @ 4 a day. I am already getting what he is recommending. Apparently. since I have taken this amount for years, it hasn't helped my vitamin D count. I am waiting to receive a call back from Doctor to see if I should have a more aggressive plan implemented after reading what you received.
    I have suffered for many many years with skin problems on my legs and arms which are all pre-cancerous, plus a malignant melanoma on my leg which was stage 2.9. My skin, muscle, bone level of pain is so great that a cat jumping on my lap is very painful and liking ending in bruising.
    I am sincerely hoping that this Vitamin D could solve these issues (and by the sounds of it) and many other medical issues in the future.
