Vitamin D Helps Keep Blood Sugar Under Control

Extra vitamin D may help people with diabetes regulate their blood sugar, according to a new study.  90 adults with diabetes were divided into three groups -- one group received plain yogurt daily, one got yogurt with extra vitamin D, and one was given yogurt with extra vitamin D and calcium.

At the end of 12 weeks, there was found to be a "relatively remarkable" improvement in the blood sugar levels of the groups that got extra vitamin D.  Vitamin D is thought to help regulate your body's sensitivity to insulin.

Reuters reports:

“In addition, people who got the fortified yogurt lost an average of two to five pounds during the study, while the plain-yogurt group stayed about the same.”
