Vitamin D reduces cellular growth and improves cell differentiation (notably in breast and prostate tissue, thereby helping to reduce the risk of cancer), reduces inflammation, soothes muscles aches and fibromyalgia, boosts mood, supports cardiovascular function, and strengthens immunity. Vitamin D's role in immune health has long been established; vitamin D receptors are found on a number of immune cells, including lymphocytes and macrophages, supporting healthy immune cell activation.
