Vitamin D Supplements Proven to be Useless

Vitamin D supplementation has been found to be not very helpful in the prevention of heart attacks, strokes or depression. It seems all the hype that had been created in favor of the huge bottles of pills lying on pharmacy shelves was just that...hype! 

The latest study from New Zealand suggests that the vitamin pills especially vitamin D supplements have little to no effect on the ailments they are supposed to cure. Some more trials are needed before this study is corroborated. 

"Our findings suggest that vitamin D supplementation with or without calcium does not reduce skeletal or non-skeletal outcomes in unselected community-dwelling individuals by more than 15%. Future trials with similar designs are unlikely to alter these conclusions," according to the study conducted by Health Research Council of New Zealand.

But for now the evidence is in. And it goes in favor of obtaining your vitamin D from milk, salmon, tuna and mushrooms instead of from fake supplements. The experiments that got carried out were undertaken with calcium and non-calcium supplements. 

Heart disease, cancer, stroke and fracture prevention were the markers that got examined. The results were conclusive enough. In either case the supplements (dummy and real) had no marked effect on the diseases among the test subjects. 

The best method of getting the right nutrients is through proper nutrition. One does not need supplements since food is the best supplement. Instead of popping all those pills you see on the supermarket shelves it is better to eat freshly cooked food at home.

Of course this is just one study. It raised though a lot of awareness and criticsm. Here is a report that counter argues the findings of the vitamin D study featured above.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
