Vitamin D deficiency study examines dosage

Posted:

A new study examines the dosage of Vitamin D for African American and Caucasian when battling a deficiency.

Researchers find that African American women tend to have lower levels of Vitamin D but they found that they absorbed and metabolized Vitamin D supplements the same way as Caucasian women.

This means that black women don't need to take larger doses of Vitamin D to compensate these lower levels. 

Experts say they should follow current medical guidelines.
