    Does this mean vitamin D can stop the aging process?

    Just checked the label on my skim milk in the fridge. Vit D added. Why in the hell would they be adding D to milk for Florida consumers? I'm pretty sure we get enough sunlight to produce it ourselves just by getting out to the car to buy the damned milk.

    Lawsuit to follow.

    You're not gonna OD on Vit D from the sun unless you tan nude all day every day.

    Um, well, I wasn't planning to sue the sun. But Vit D. being fat soluble, you can overdose on it unlike a water soluble where excess is pretty much just pissed out. I thought that the body only makes so much Vit D from the sun then shuts that process down, unlike ingesting it which apparently can be a problem.

    I'm neither a doc nor scientist but to this layman it makes sense to fortify milk with Vit D. in northern states where they might not get enough sun. But maybe it is dangerous in Florida? I don't know. Wasn't aware of this issue until Metta's post. With all the sun we get even without trying, certainly adding Vit D to diet in Florida is not required.

    I read it! Or... I read a really good interview with the researcher. Superbalanced.

    So it was based on blood samples from 250'000 people from the Copenhagen area. Those with a low serum vit D level (10 nM or lower, 20'000 participants) had an increase in mortality factor of 2.31 while the ones with a high level of vit D (140 nM or higher, 2'500 participants) had an increase in mortality factor of 1.42 (I may have screwed up the grammar since I'm not exactly sure what a mortality factor is).

    They don't know what people with outlier vit D status are at increased risk from.
    They don't know if very high vit D status is linked to the intake of something else that is causing a problem (like vit A or calcium).

    BTW very misleading headline there.

    EDIT: Your body shuts off vit D production from sunlight at a certain level.

    though vit D supplementation has also been shown to prevent age related injuries and increase physical activity levels in the older populations, supporting the claim that being physically active and health later on leads to prolonged life.

    interesting claim though, i wish they knew what the cause was in the study and not just the association

    Fortified Milk products

    Vitamin D just isn't a naturally sourced source of nourishment found in standard milk. Consequently, vitamin D is actually put in. Commercially made available milk, soy milk as well as rice milk obtainable in bottles tend to be found to have vitamin D.



    Cod liver fish oil

    Cod liver oil has additionally been included in the listing of food supplies of vitamin D. Aside from simply being a splendid way to obtain vitamin D, it's also discovered to be an excellent source of some other wellbeing boosting nutritional vitamins just like vitamin A and even omega3 efas.



    Egg Yolk

    Egg yolk is available in the listing of normal food resources for levels for vitamin D. Having said that, it's not a great choice for individuals being affected by high cholesterol levels.



    Though, fresh fish is a of the greatest food resources for levels for vitamin D, food preparation accurately just before taking in it is strongly recommended to stop all sorts of parasitic illness. In addition to cooking food over high temperatures, make sure you steer clear of deep frying, alternatively choose baked or maybe barbequed fish for healthy and balanced preparing food.

    Most companies that add vitamin D to their products add D2, which comes from irradiated mushrooms. The human body does not absorb D2 very well. D3 comes from wool and is the same D that you get from the sun. D2 is normally used because it is cheaper. I think that Horizon Dairy uses D3.

    I think that the key here, as to most things, is moderation.

    Merely a handful of types of fish are seen to come with significant amount of vitamin D. Fish for example tuna fish, large mackerel, salmons and also sardines are actually loaded with vitamin D. These types of oily fish and also classified as food items loaded with vitamin D. In regards to best vitamin D concentrations inside fish, wild salmon is without a doubt a guaranteed champion.



    Fortified Milk products

    Vitamin D just isn't a naturally sourced source of nourishment found in normal milk. As a result, vitamin D is usually included. Commercially purchased cow milk, soya milk as well as rice milk found in containers tend to be found to feature vitamin D.



    Cod liver oil

    Cod liver fish oil has additionally been put in the listing of food supplies of vitamin D. Apart from currently being a splendid way to obtain vitamin D, it is additionally seen to be loaded with additional wellness improving vitamins and nutrients similar to vitamin A and even omega-3 efa's.



    Egg Yolk

    Egg yolk comes in the selection of all-natural food resources of vitamin D. Nonetheless, it is not a wise decision for individuals being affected by high cholesterol levels.

    Despite the fact that, uncooked fish is a of the top food resources of vitamin D, cooking food effectively prior to taking in it is strongly recommended to avoid all sorts of parasitic infections. Besides preparing food over hot temperature, make sure you steer clear of deep frying, alternatively select baked as well as barbequed fish for wholesome preparing food.

    Another reason medicine is practice not science.

    The article explicitly states what is wrong with the study:

    The authors conclude β€œin this study from the general practice sector, a reverse J-shaped relation between the serum level of 25(OH)D and all-cause mortality was observed, indicating not only a lower limit but also an upper limit. The lowest mortality risk was at 50 – 60 nmol/liter. The study did not allow inference of causality, and further studies are needed to elucidate a possible causal relationship between 25(OH)D levels, especially higher levels, and mortality.”

    There's no information on the variance of the sample. Therefore, it's pretty much meaningless.

    I'm no expert, but I do remember hearing on the news a few weeks ago that Vitamin D was helpful in lowering the risk of certain kinds of cancer.
