Vitamin D and weight loss

by Mushroom Enthusiast on 15 February , 2012

Maintaining an appropriate weight is something that we all know is important, but is sometimes rather easier said than done. A new study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition suggest that followed the diet enriched with vitamin D may just help us to achieve better weight loss.

The two-year study, involving more than 300 people who were considered overweight, found that participants who consumed the most nutrient enriched foods lost more weight. While it was previously known that overweight people have lower levels of serum vitamin D, the study showed that serum vitamin D actually increased among those people who lost weight.

While people are able to receive vitamin D through exposure to sunlight, the fact is that most people in Australia now work and live indoors, leading to overall lower vitamin D levels. As this study shows, research is showing that vitamin D plays a number of important roles in a balanced, healthy diet.

Vitamin D mushrooms are the most deliciously easy way to maintain your vitamin D levels and enjoy the health benefits of this important vitamin.
