Default Obesity May Interfere With Vitamin D Absorption

The researchers also suggest that overweight and obese people may have problems processing the vitamin properly.

They also suggested that people who are overweight and obese might benefit from vitamin D supplementation and more exposure to sunlight.

Sounds like a lot more of us would benefit from supplementing our Vit D.

I wonder if they controlled this for activity levels? The higher the BMI, generally, the more sedentary the individual. I know I went outside more when I was thinner and more active.

Either way, fascinating research on our ability to convert and metabolize the vitamin breaking down with obesity. I wonder if chemical or hormonal interference is the culprit?

Living so far north and being a house mouse I supplement myself liberally with vitamin D, as well as working at getting lots of dietary sources of it. I supplement my kids for the same reason. It's really necessary when there is only sunlight a few hours a day, and it never gets decently above the horizon

I have been hearing alot about Vitamin D lately...like the universe is trying to tell me something. Its also related to Fertility which is a huge part of my life right now (PCOS). I am thinking I need to get my numbers checked. Especially now, we have had no sun for 3-4 days now, just constant cloud cover, so I am getting little to no sun...Thanks for sharing this.
Determined to make 2011 my best year in a LONG time!!

I want to feel like .

I suggest when you go for your yearly physical and blood tests, that you ask for vitamin D. My last physical included a vitamin D test which showed me low and I took a prescription vitamin D and now I take OTC. My doctor also said that she thought vitamin D2 was better to take than vitamin D3.
You can't out-exercise poor eating habits.
