Vitamin D3 offers many health benefits. It is known to help strengthen bones and muscles, boost immunity, increase mood, aid in weight loss, and improve heart function
Vitamin D is known to help both the muscles and bones It enhances the absorption of calcium in the small intestine. If your body doesn't have enough vitamin D to absorb calcium, it'll pull calcium out of your bones. That makes the bones weak and can lead to fractures and osteoporosis.
Research shows that vitamin D can aid in reducing fractures and improve muscle strength. In addition, high levels of dietary vitamin D3 may be suitable for achieving a higher peak bone mass in adulthood and thereby preventing osteoporosis.
Research has shown that vitamin D may help protect against acute respiratory infections and pneumonia.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, some preliminary evidence surfaced suggesting vitamin D deficiency may increase the risk of both infection and severe illness. However, more work needs to be done to say for certain what role—if any—this vitamin plays in the fight against the coronavirus behind the pandemic.
Studies have shown that people with clinical depression often have vitamin D deficiencies. However, it's not clear whether the deficiency contributes to depression or depression changes behavior (e.g., diet, time outside) and therefore causes the deficiency.
As researchers have examined the impact of vitamin D on the brain, they have uncovered possible mechanisms of action that may shine light on how a deficiency could lead to depression. They've also found evidence that raising vitamin D levels helps alleviate symptoms. Larger, well-designed studies still are needed, but thus far the findings are promising for vitamin D as part of a depression treatment regimen.
Studies have found that individuals with obesity and high blood pressure tend to have lower vitamin D levels. Some research suggested that the vitamin can help lower blood pressure. Some studies have shown that people with higher vitamin D levels have a higher risk of stroke and heart attack, but clinical trials haven't shown that vitamin D supplements reduce the risk.
In one study, postmenopausal women were given vitamin D3 supplements (compared with a placebo) for a weight loss intervention. The outcome showed that the women who had adequate levels of vitamin D3 lost more body fat, saw a greater reduction in waist circumference, and lost more weight.
However, most research has concluded that vitamin D does not promote weight loss.
