About Vitamin D

While Vitamin D is known to offer many benefits, there is no consensus on what level of the nutrient is optimal for good health, according to the Mayo Clinic Health Letter.

Vitamin D helps in improved balance, reduction in the risk of bone fractures, and better thinking skills such as planning, organizing and abstract thinking. Low levels of vitamin D are associated with diabetes, cardiovascular disease, multiple sclerosis and other autoimmune disorders, infections such as tuberculosis, and periodontal disease.
