The “Sunshine Vitamin,” vitamin D, may help prevent and reverse type 2 diabetes, a new paper published out of Tufts University found. In the study, researchers followed vitamin D levels in a group of 2,000 people with pre-diabetes –a condition where blood sugar is high but not high enough to be considered diabetic.
They found that those with the highest levels of vitamin D in their blood had a 25 percent lower risk of developing diabetes than those with low vitamin D levels. These results have important implications for those already with diabetes. As well, the research team found a clear link between blood sugar control and vitamin D. Getting more vitamin D into your body through sunlight, supplements or food may help your body reduce its resistance to insulin.
