Study: Low Vitamin D Levels Linked to Increased Weight Gain in Older Women

Fri, 29 Jun 2012 13:29:04 EST

Recent research from Kaiser Permanente indicates that older women who have low vitamin D levels have an increased chance of gaining two pounds or more over a five-year period, reports the Huffington Post.
 
Kaiser Permanente scientists also noted that among the women who gained weight in the study, those with low levels of vitamin D gained about two pounds more than women with sufficient vitamin D levels (18.5 pounds, versus 16.4 pounds).
 
Vitamin D helps keep bones, muscles, and nervous system healthy, so many consumers are concerned about getting the proper amount of the vitamin. (Too much can be toxic and result in nausea, vomiting, and loss of appetite.)
 
Sunlight is the primary source of vitamin D, but those who are not exposed to sufficient sunlight can also get their daily dose from food or supplements.
 
'EMSL Analytical offers vitamin testing for companies and consumers who want to know the vitamin D levels in their food or supplements,' states Shannon Kauffman, Food Chemistry Lab Manager. 'We provide FDA-compliant vitamin testing for nutritional labels, and RDI and DV percentages can be provided when applicable.'
