Vitamin D and calcium supplementation administered together and separately improve inflammatory markers

New exploratory research shows that the co-administration of vitamin D and calcium, as well as separate administration, improves biomarkers of inflammation.

Systemic inflammation has been linked to the development of insulin resistance, beta cell dysfunction, and type 2 diabetes. In addition, increased inflammation is common among those with type 2 diabetes and is associated with diabetic complications.

Both vitamin D and calcium intake are associated with inflammatory biomarkers and some studies show vitamin D supplementation reduces various markers of inflammation in diabetic patients.

    Another interpretation would be that when dietary calcium is high enough not to require vitamin D to increase absorption, the vitamin D that’s not needed in the calcium context adds to the vitamin D available in the inflammation context.

    Denise,

    They used cholecalciferol, vitamin D3, for eight weeks.

    Tom,

    That is a great point. It would be interesting to see an analysis on the relationship between calcium levels and each of the inflammatory markers.
