More Evidence Showing Vitamin D Combats Cancer

  • Evidence continues to accumulate showing that vitamin D is a strong ally to combat cancer
  • Low vitamin D levels are linked to an increased risk of cancers, while vitamin D can attach to the vitamin D receptor (VDR) in your cells, setting off a series of signals that may affect how they grow, develop and survive
  • Although increasing vitamin D levels may help to reduce cancer deaths, health officials rarely recommend optimizing levels for this purpose
  • Vitamin D targets cancer in multiple ways, including anticancer, antimetastatic and anti-tumorigenic effects
  • The best way to optimize your vitamin D level is via regular sun exposure, which enhances production of melatonin — a potent anticancer agent
