Vitamin D prevents inflammation.

Researchers gathered data from almost 300,000 adults looking at their blood levels of vitamin D and a c-reactive protein, a marker of inflammation.  C-reactive protein is generated in the liver in response to inflammation.

The higher the levels of c-reactive protein, the higher the level of chronic inflammation. 

Results: the people with the lowest levels of vitamin D (vitamin D deficient) had the highest levels of inflammation.

These findings are in line with previous research showing vitamin D inhibits pro-inflammatory compounds and increases products of anti-inflammatory compounds.

High vitamin D levels reduce risk of diseases associated with chronic inflammation including diabetes and multiple sclerosis.
