Vitamin D Increase Related to Increased Weight Loss

June 15, 2009: 12:47 PM EST
A small study has shown a link between vitamin D levels and losing weight. Researchers at the University of Minnesota found that people who showed incremental increases in both a precursor form of vitamin D and an active form lost more weight. Lead author Dr. Shalamar Sibley, an assistant professor of medicine at the University of Minnesota, said that “a more controlled trial” is needed to determine if vitamin D supplementation would have similar effects. The report does not say how or why vitamin D levels increased in the study subjects, but 750 calories were deducted from their diet each day.
