New trial suggests vitamin D3 improves markers of quality of life in healthy women

Researchers at the University of Malaya in Malaysia just last month published their findings on the effects of vitamin D supplementation on cardiovascular health and health-related quality of life in healthy, pre-menopausal women:

Ramly M, Ming MF, Chinna K, Suboh S, Pendek R. Effect of Vitamin D Supplementation on Cardiometabolic Risks and Health-Related Quality of Life among Urban Premenopausal Women in a Tropical Country – A Randomized Controlled Trial. PLoS ONE. 2014;9(10):e110476.

Many observational studies have noted that people with more sun exposure have better cardiovascular health. This includes a more favorable lipid profile, lower blood pressure, and better insulin sensitivity. These benefits have been attributed to increased vitamin D production, but randomized controlled trials (RCT) have had conflicting results regarding the effects of vitamin D supplementation on cardiovascular markers.

    How can we get positive results of vitamin D supplementation of cardiomeabolic risk in normal subjects. They are normal because their protective factors are normal. I think, to obtain a conclusive result, this study should be done in elderly peoples or women after menopause.

    Thanks

    The really good thing about this study is that it DID prove that Vitamin D does something. Of course we all hope that some of these studies would use higher amounts and longer periods of supplementing. It does say they only reached a blood level of into the 30’s and the study admits that which is another good thing. I truly believe that low vitamin D levels are causing most of our diseases but I know science wants to see proof.
