metabolic syndromeMetabolic syndrome

A precursor to type II diabetes, metabolic syndrome is associated with an increased risk of heart disease.

A recent study analyzing data from more than 10,000 participants found that increased dietary intake of vitamin D was associated with a decreased risk of developing metabolic syndrome.

Calcium intake also exerted a protective effect against metabolic syndrome in this study of middle-aged and older women.
