Benefit of Vitamin D on Performance

benefit of vitamin DThe benefit of vitamin D for athletes was recently studied by the University of Tulsa in a new study. They found that low levels of vitamin D can significantly affect athletic performance.

The study involved 103 college athletes from three different southern US NCAA athletic programs. A baseline level of vitamin D was determined for each athlete. Levels of vitamin D are considered adequate when serum levels are greater than 75 nmol/L. Insufficient is considered to be between 50 and 75 nmol/L while deficiency is at serum levels below 50 nmol/L.
