Smorgasbord Health Column – Nutrient in the News – Vitamin D and Irritable Bowel Syndrome

Part of my work as a nutritional therapist involves keeping up to date with new research. Even though I am no longer working with clients on a one to one basis, I like to make sure that my posts and books are updated regularly.

Those of you who are regulars to my health posts will know that I am passionate about communicating the fact that those of us living in northern climates with limited sun exposure are at a risk of Vitamin D deficiency. This is more so for children who spend less time than ever outdoors playing in sunlight or even daylight.

This research was featured recently in Science News.

Vitamin D supplements could help to ease painful Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) symptoms, a new study from the University of Sheffield has found.

Scientists from the University’s Department of Oncology and Metabolism reviewed and integrated all available research on vitamin D and IBS — a condition which affects two in 10 people in the UK.
