Evidence for Vitamin D Continues to Grow: Blood Sugar Health

wp_featuredimage_diabetes01

The large body of scientific research supporting the vital importance of vitamin D continues to grow. A newly published scientific study links vitamin D to potential roles in supporting healthy blood sugar levels.

Based on a six-year analysis of blood samples from nearly 2,000 active-duty military personnel, the researchers’ statistical analysis found that the risk of blood sugar issues was 3.5 times higher in individuals with the lowest vitamin D concentrations, compared with the individuals with the highest vitamin D concentrations.

The researchers concluded that the concentration of vitamin D in the blood needed to achieve this health benefit is 50 nanograms per milliliter (ng/ml), and added that most people can achieve this concentration from 4000 I.U. per day of vitamin D3.
