New Study Shows Vitamin D Helps Us Live Longer!

For years, we’ve been advocating for the health benefits of high blood levels of vitamin D. A study just published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, a peer-reviewed scientific publication, underscores just how important vitamin D is, not only for good health, but perhaps life itself. A group of scientists reviewed 14 studies on more than 60,000 people. Statistical analysis of the pooled data revealed a startling trend toward increased longevity in people with higher levels of vitamin D. This follows on the heels of another scientific report published last September in the European Journal of Clinical Nutrition. Based on that study, which looked at vitamin D levels of people in six geographic regions, global mortality rates could be reduced as much as 17 percent by doubling vitamin D blood levels.
