Higher blood levels of vitamin D reduces metabolic syndrome risk

In a study of 1790 Japanese adults, higher circulating vitamin D levels were associated with a decreased likelihood of having metabolic syndrome. Compared with those with vitamin D levels lower than 20 ng/mL, the risk of metabolic syndrome was reduced by 21% with levels of 20 – 29 ng/mL, and by 48% with levels above 30 ng/mL.
