Over the past few years, you have surely heard of quite a few studies showing the link between vitamin D and various health issues. Studies have shown a link between vitamin D deficiency and increased risk for Inflammatory Bowel Disease. (IBD), which includes Crohn’s Disease and Ulcerative Colitis.
November is IBD awareness month. Learn about the connection of vitamin D and IBD (as well as a few other gastrointestinal diseases) in our article “Vitamin D, The Sunshine Vitamin: For More than Just Your Bones“.
Note that vitamin D is not indicated as a treatment for IBD. Talk about vitamin D with your doctor.
