Vitamin D shines its light on diabetics: Research says it helps manage blood sugar levels

[Natural News]: Diabetes is now a worldwide epidemic, putting researchers on the offensive as they continue to search for ways to stop it. A study published in the journal Nutrition Research found that supplementing with vitamin D can reduce insulin resistance and improve the levels of fasting blood sugar in healthy adults, preventing the development of diabetes.

For the study, researchers at Waseda University in Japan and Shanghai University of Sport in China looked at whether supplementing with vitamin D for a year would improve insulin resistance. 

They hypothesized that improved 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25[OH]D), also known as calcifediol, status after vitamin D supplementation for one year would significantly improve insulin resistance. Calcifediol is the main circulating metabolite of vitamin D3 produced in the liver. It is also the best indicator of vitamin D stores in the body. Earlier studies have shown that higher circulating 25(OH)D is associated with a lower prevalence of insulin resistance and Type 2 diabetes...read more>>>>.....
