vit D SKINSome investigators believe that based on the distribution of vitamin D receptors throughout the body, vitamin D may have potential therapeutic applications in managing numerous skin disorders, including actinic keratosis, seborrheic dermatitis, and photoaging.

One of the most troublesome and difficult-to-treat skin conditions is psoriasis, which is marked by patches of itchy, flaky skin. Both ultraviolet B radiation and topical application of the active form of vitamin D have been found to benefit patients who suffer from psoriasis. Scientists believe that vitamin D's antiproliferative and immune-regulating activities may be responsible for these benefits.
