New Vitamin D Findings

In a new placebo controlled study, Vitamin D supplementation reduced the severity of urinary incontinence in women aged 40-49. 

This study looked at women with a history of stress urinary incontinence and low levels of Vitamin D, to determine whether adding Vitamin D would have a positive effect on stress urinary incontinence. The findings were positive. 

Vitamin D receptors are present in the bladder and urethra muscles and vitamin D regulates muscle strength. The study was published in the journal Bio Medical Central Women’s Health late last  year. Read more and about the study below.
