Vitamin D helps prevent  macular degeneration

Vitamin D Deficiency is associated with an increased risk of developing age related macular degeneration according to new study findings.

Researchers from the University of Buffalo studied vitamin D levels and genetic polymorphisms in genes associated with immune response in 913 women as part of the CAREDS (Carotenoids in Age Related Eye Disease Study) research.  Women with a combined effect of vitamin D deficiency and genetic polymorphisms relating to immune response were found to have a 6.7-fold increase in the odds of developing age related macular degeneration.

The genetic polymorphisms are linked with a more aggressive immune response and increased inflammation.  Vitamin D is known to play a central role in gene expression; deficiency in the nutrient can contribute to an elevated immune response if the genetic polymorphism is present.

We have reported before on the Updates service about the many and various conditions associated with low levels of vitamin D.  From diabetes and asthma to hypertension and ‘flu, the nutrient plays a vital role in regulating how our genes work and modulating inflammation and the immune response.

As summer moves into autumn and the hours of sunlight decrease, it is important to consider vitamin D supplementation to support the body’s stores throughout winter.  Oral sprays of vitamin D are a simple, practical cost-effective way to supplement this crucial nutrient and are suitable for the whole family.
