Vitamin D may reduce the risk of women developing multiple sclerosis in women

In this study, doctors measured vitamin D levels in blood samples from 800,000 women during prenatal testing.

Nine years later, the team identified 1,092 cases of multiple sclerosis (MS) from the group, and compared these samples to 2,123 samples from women who had not developed MS.

Women whose vitamin D levels were at least 20 nanograms per milliliter of blood (ng/mL) were 39 percent less likely to have developed MS compared to women whose vitamin D levels were 12 ng/mL or lower.
