Vitamin D supplement decreases wheezing in African American Infants

Health experts agree that Vitamin D is super- important to so many systems in the body & is essential for bone- building, cognitive function, joint health, immune function, blood sugar control, positive mood, and more & can help prevent everything from osteoporosis to autoimmune disorders to cardiovascular disease and cancer. Mega doses of Vitamin D can cause a buildup of calcium in the blood, causing nausea, vomiting, poor appetite, constipation, weakness, & weight loss. A buildup of stored Vitamin D can cause avoidable problems since it is fat soluble & any excess can get stored in the body.

African American Infants born prematurely are at high risk for recurrent wheezing and this condition causes discomfort in the baby & is a risk factor for developing asthma later in life. There are no widely-accepted therapies to prevent prematurity-associated wheezing.
Researchers had found that black preterm infants experience a significant decrease in recurrent wheezing with sustained supplementation of vitamin D. Among infants born at 28-26 weeks gestation, a daily dose of vitamin D through six months of age decreased recurrent wheezing by more than 10 percent.
