Vitamin D is back in the public eye as more and more people in the UK have been diagnosed with very low levels, particularly in the winter months when sunlight is weak. Often referred to as ‘the sunshine vitamin’, we produce it when we are exposed to enough sunlight, which helps the body to absorb calcium and keep bones strong.
Recent research has found that vitamin D could also reduce the risk of asthma attacks. In a study carried out by researchers from the Cochrane Collaboration, they concluded that people with low vitamin D levels seem to be more prone to asthma attacks than people with higher levels. In the study, asthma sufferers taking vitamin D supplements were less likely to need steroids or hospital treatment than the sufferers taking a placebo.
The study also found that vitamin D did not seem to affect people’s day-to-day asthma symptoms in any way. It looks like there is much more to discover in this new area of medical study.
