Vitamin D: The Body Fat Buster?

In a study published in the British Journal of Nutrition this month, scientists found that 1000iu vitamin D daily produced significant drops in body fat mass.

This result was remarkable because 1000iu was not even enough to raise participants’ blood level of vitamin D into a normal, healthy range. The researchers suggested a higher dose or a longer period of Vitamin D supplementation to perhaps improve on the results they observed with the lower dose.
