Sunshine Proven to Prevent Diabetes

By AFM Staff – April 1, 2015

We all know that Vitamin D helps absorb calcium and maintain muscle and bone health, yet there are millions of people who don’t receive enough vitamin D due to their lack of sunshine exposure. According to a new study released by the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism, people who lack healthy concentrations of Vitamin D are more likely to suffer from diabetes—regardless of their weight. The study observed people of varying body-mass indexes; some already had diabetes and some did not. Subjects who were obese, but did not have glucose metabolism disorders, were found to have higher levels of Vitamin D than their diabetic counterparts. Subjects with a low BMI that had diabetes were shown to be lacking proper amounts of Vitamin D in their system. bit.ly/1GUPvVA
