Vitamin D contains Vitamin D3 the most bioactive form of supplemental vitamin D. Vitamin D is important for both bone formation and immune function.
Observational studies suggest that low levels of this vitamin can be associated with an increased risk of dying from conditions such as cancer, cardiovascular disease and diabetes (Autier P, Gandini S, 2007).
Vitamin D levels are inversely associated with postmenopausal breast cancer risk (Abbas S, et al. 2007).
A daily intake of 1000-2000 IU of vitamin D3 may reduce the incidence of colorectal cancer (Gorham ED, et al. 2007).
High intake of vitamin D was associated with lower risk for pancreatic cancer (Skinner AG, et al. 2006). However, adequate intake of this vitamin reduces inflammatory cytokines and inadequate intake contributes to inflammation and increases the risk of developing MS (Mark BL, Carson JA, 2006).
