Vitamin D is not a cure for all diseases. The pill will not protect against cancer, stroke, heart disease and other ailments, even if taken for years. This was warned by a urologist-andrologist, candidate of medical sciences Konstantin Antonov.

He recalled that over the past 10-15 years, scientists have devoted a lot of time to the study of vitamin D. You can find a large amount of materials on its effectiveness on the net. The basis of most of the arguments is the fact that vitamin D receptors are found in all organs. So, the drug can improve their work. However, recent data prove that the information is exaggerated.

“To date, after analyzing the results of many years of experience with vitamin D intake by patients, scientists come to the conclusion that vitamin D therapy does not reduce the risk of strokes and heart attacks, does not increase testosterone levels, and does not reduce the likelihood of cancer.”– quotes an expert.

And this is only the first convincing data, the doctor notes. As a result, some members of the US Disease Prevention Task Force have already stopped recommending the vitamin to their patients.

At the same time, Antonov added, it is also not worth completely abandoning the vitamin. It is important for the human body. In particular, for the prevention of rickets in children – for this, in fact, they used to give the drug to babies. But it’s also not worth putting high hopes on him either. And in the treatment of covid – including.
