A recent study shows that vitamin D can actually protect women from melanoma. And of course, the best source of vitamin D is – the sun. If you opt for the next best option – a good quality vitamin D3 supplement offers similar benefits.
The researchers studied data on 36,000 women, between the ages of 50 and 79 and over a period of seven years. And what they found was quite remarkable. They discovered that the women who were taking vitamin D3 supplements had less than half (that’s less than 50%) risk of melanoma than those who were taking a placebo.
Everyone, including men and children need vitamin D. And the less time we spend in the sun, and more sun-block we slather on, the higher our risk for melanoma. Have a blood test and check your levels. If you levels are below 30ng/ml – please supplement with Vitamin D3 and recheck the levels within 3 months.
