Vitamin D levels may reduce risk of macular degeneration. According to a study done by the University at Buffalo in New York, higher concentrations of Vitamin D may be associated with a reduced likelihood of developing early age-related macular degeneration (AMD) in women younger than 75 years of age. This is just one of the recent findings – other health benefits of maintaining adequate levels of Vitamin D include reduction in chronic pain and improvement in mood and memory. Recommended doses have recently increased, and patients should take supplements containing vitamin D3. Ask our pharmacist to help you select the vitamin D3 supplement that is best for you.
