Supporting lung health

lungsPeople with higher levels of vitamin D in the bloodstream demonstrate better lung function than their counterparts with lower vitamin D levels, according to a recent report.

Researchers examined 14,000 participants and found that people with higher vitamin D levels could inhale and exhale substantially more air, as measured by forced vital capacity and forced expiratory volume.

Though further studies are needed, these findings suggest that vitamin D might benefit smokers, asthmatics, and others with compromised respiratory function.
