Vitamin D and Weight Loss

Vitamin D is also known as an anti-obesity nutrient, which is essential in maintaining a healthy weight. Several research studies found that the sunshine vitamin can help overweight and obese people lose weight safely and effectively:
1. Lower levels of vitamin D are stongly linked with obesity and higher body mass index (BMI). [682-706]
2. In overweight and obese women, 1000 IU of vitamin D daily significantly reduces body fat mass. [707]
3. In overweight and obese women, 200 IU of vitamin D daily for 15 weeks significantly reduces fat mass and waist circumference. [708]
4. Research suggests that vitamin D inhibits key molecules needed for the production of fat cells (adipocytes). [709-719]
5. In overweight subjects, vitamin D supplementation improves weight loss without any adverse side effects. [720]
6. In postmenopausal women, 2000 IU per day of oral vitamin D3 is associated with 5% to 10% reduction in body weight. [721]
7. In healthy overweight and obese women, vitamin D supplementation significantly decreases body fat mass. [722]
8. In obese children, vitamin D supplementation at a dose of 1200 IU for 26 weeks is associated with significant reduction in BMI and body composition. [723]
9. In healthy subjects with obesity, vitamin D supplementation at 25,000 IU per week or for 3 months significantly decreases body weight. [724]
10. In older women, vitamin D supplementation augments the effect of weight loss. [725]
11. In overweight and obese individuals on a weight-reducing program, vitamin D supplementation improves outcome measure. [726]
12. In obese patients, long-term vitamin D supplementation enhances weight reduction. [727]
