“A new systematic review and meta-analysis of available randomized controlled trials identifies a significant relationship between vitamin D supplementation and a lower risk of all-cause mortality.”
Previous research has similarly found a relationship between vitamin D supplementation and a lower mortality risk. A study published in 2018 by scientists from the University of Bergen in Norway concluded that taking the right amount of vitamin D substantially reduces the risk of death. This study suggested that it is favorable to have blood values of vitamin D of around 42 to 100 nmol/l.
Other research has found that not getting enough vitamin D could triple the risk of an early death. A combined low status of vitamins D and K is similarly associated with increased all-cause mortality risk and possibly also with cardiovascular events. Overall there is now strong evidence linking vitamin D deficiency with premature death.
