Nutritional Health Supplements: A Winning Combination For Skin

When choosing nutritional health supplements to ensure you have the healthiest skin, it is now clear that you should consider those that combine calcium and vitamin D.

The Journal Of Clinical Oncology reported recently on a new study by Dr. Jean Tang at the Stanford University School of Medicine that discovered evidence that this combination has great benefits for skin.

The study collected data from 36,282 women in the age range of 50 to 79 years old who were given either a supplement containing vitamin D and calcium or a placebo. The initial intention was to see if the nutritional health supplements given had an effect on the number of hip fractures or colon cancer but, during the seven year follow up from the project, it was discovered that the subjects who had previously experienced non-melanoma skin cancer reduced the risk of melanoma by 57 per cent, compared to those not taking the supplement.

The next stage is to try the combination on cancer cells directly to see if there is an effect.

Ironically the best source of vitamin D other than nutritional health supplements is sunlight. Of course the problem is the ultra violet rays also cause skin cancer too.

See the report on this study on the USNews.com health website.
