Vitamin D Helps to Prevent Multiple Sclerosis

People who expose their skin to the rays of the sun and those with higher levels of vitamin D receive many benefits, the latest of which appears to be less risk for developing multiple sclerosis (MS).

Vitamin D & Multiple Sclerosis

Sun exposure is reported to be more effective than taking vitamin supplements in preventing MS.

In a recently published research study, actual vitamin D levels were measured with blood tests.  It is a well-known fact that your skin will produce its own vitamin D upon exposure to sunlight.  Sun exposure is reported to be more effective than taking vitamin supplements, as a means to increasing your vitamin D levels.

This study found that the risk of having a diagnosed first MS event decreased by 30 percent for each ultraviolet sunlight exposure increase of 1,000 kilojoules, while people with the most sun exposure were 60 percent less likely to develop a first MS event than the people with the least amount of sun exposure. Likewise, those with the highest levels of vitamin D, also, were less likely than people with the lowest levels.

Vitamin D from Sunshine and Sunshine is effective against Multiple Sclerosis

Both exposure to sunshine and vitamin D status play separate roles, and are both independently important in the prevention of MS.  Or, in other words, that vitamin D supplementation without ultraviolet sunlight exposure is not as effective as both independent risk factors.
