Correlation Between Vitamin D And Weight Loss Uncovered
PacificCoast NutriLabs Provides Feedback on Recent Study Establishing the Connection of Vitamin D and Weight Loss
Recent studies into vitamin D have further expanded our understanding about how it affects our bodie
Vitamin D is a form of an essential vitamin which helps the body absorb certain nutrients in one's diet, such as calcium and phosphorus, and is therefore indispensable to bone health. The human body is capable of manufacturing this vitamin naturally during exposure to sunlight. Vitamin D3 is the most important compound in the Vitamin D group, as this vitamin is the key in enhancing communication among cells all throughout the body.
The body does not need Vitamin D supplements if skin exposure to the sun is sufficient. When the level of Vitamin D in the body is insufficient, however, using dietary supplements becomes necessary. Vitamin D deficiency is normally associated with rickets in children, or osteomalacia in adults.
Aside from the accepted use of vitamin D, there have been claims that taking vitamin D causes weight loss. Weight loss resulting from taking Vitamin D supplements, however, is only possible when the patient reach 32 ng/mL calcifediol level or more.
To verify the weight loss claim provided by taking Vitamin D supplement, a study was made; results of which were published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition. In this study, 218 overweight and obese women with Vitamin D deficiency participated in the study. It is a year-long randomized control trial. The participants were given a 2,000 IU oral vitamin D every day throughout the duration of the study.
"I am happy to read about this study," says John W. Collins, president of PacificCoast NutriLabs, makers of high-quality nutritional supplements such as PLATINUM Series Vitamin D3. "The increasing number of overweight and obese, along with all the health hazards they come with, is alarming. The effort in establishing a relationship of Vitamin D and weight loss is a great step in providing an alternative to losing weight safely."
After a year-long supplementation, there was a significant difference between two groups in terms of weight loss. The Vitamin D group had made significantly more weight loss than the group not taking supplementation. Women who participated in the study observed a tremendous loss in waist circumference and body fat volume.
After the study, it is still unclear whether Vitamin D is involved in lowering obesity or overweightness. Though the results of the study were far from definitive, it established a basis for future research regarding the relation of Vitamin D and weight loss.
PacificCoast NutriLabs is offering their PLATINUM Series Vitamin D3 for 40% off its original price as a way to celebrate the results of the study. Those interested to take advantage on the discount may enter the promo code: NEFXPUY7 at checkout when purchasing their vitamin D supplement on Amazon.
