Vitamin D Improves Health & Performance

If you’re taking vitamin D supplements to boost your immune system, you may also notice an improvement in your athletic performance, according to findings from a recent study out of Europe.

In the study: healthy adults who were given 50 mcg of vitamin D per day for two weeks cycled 30% further in a fitness experiment than they did at the beginning of the test. Not only did they cover more kilometres, they did it with fewer signs of exertion too.

The next step is to carry out a larger study on both healthy people and athletes, such as long-distance runners, but until then, you might not want to forget to take your daily D.
