Still Another Reason to Up Your Vitamin D Intake

95% of mature adults have vitamin D deficiency or inefficiency. A recent analysis of nearly 30 studies shows yet another reason why this trend could be extremely dangerous, even deadly.

Researchers from the University of Warwick in England conducted the meta-analysis which included 28 studies and nearly 100,000 participants. Their findings were published in the February 2010 issue of the journal Maturitas.

The researchers found that mature adults with the highest vitamin D levels have a 33% reduced risk of cardiovascular disease, 55% reduction in the risk of type-2 diabetes and 51% reduction in metabolic syndrome risk.

This study shows once again that vitamin D is important for more than just lower blood pressure and possibly even improve overall mood.

The easiest way to ensure you get your daily dose of the sunshine vitamin is by taking a supplement. Increased exposure to the sun can also be effective, as vitamin D is synthesized when our skin is exposed to the sun. However, it is important to take the risk of sun cancer into account.

Eating more foods fortified with the vitamin, such as milk, cereal, orange juice and yogurt, is also a good way of increasing your vitamin D intake.
