Vitamin D3, Benefits of Supplementation Print E-mail
by Ron Kennedy, M.D., Santa Rosa, CA

Dr. Kennedy

Vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol) is the most active form of vitamin D. Supplementation has been well studied and shown to have a growing list of probable benefits to the fetus when given to the mother during pregnancy, including: prevention of birth defects and possibly later neurological and psychiatric disorders, learning disabilities (dyslexia, poor school attendance), low Apgar scores, low birth weight, and deficit schizophrenia. In adults it appear probable that D3 reverses inflammatory changes associated with age-related memory impairment, helps prevent cancer (especially breast cancer), helps normalize blood sugar levels, and delay the onset of Parkinson’s disease. Severe vitamin D deficiency has been found to be associated with chronic pain.
