I can’t stress the benefits of vitamin D enough. It can help prevent a lot of diseases associated with vitamin deficiencies, like type 1 diabetes, rickets, scurvy etc. A new study has found a strong connection between low vitamin D levels and fibroid tumors: women with adequate vitamin D levels (above 20 nanograms per milliliter) had a 32% decreased risk for fibroids.
Vitamin D is also known to act as a diet pill. It reduces fat accumulation and greatly helps with weight loss. Also ladies, the more weight you lose, the higher your vitamin D levels. In this way, vitamin D can help prevent obesity related illnesses.
