Vitamin D is back in the news today. This time, it’s for helping to prevent macular degeneration, the leading cause of vision loss in later life. These latest findings, based on research led by New York University, add to the rapidly growing body of evidence suggesting that extra amounts of this vitamin – naturally obtained principally through sun exposure – may be needed by many of us to ensure optimal health. Other studies have highlighted the importance of vitamin D in a number of critical health areas, including bone health, weight management, immune functioning, brain health, and even cancer and multiple sclerosis prevention.
