Vitamin D3 and Obesity
Have you ever wondered why some people can eat all they want and not get fat, while others are constantly battling extra pounds? Could the answer have to do with vitamin D and calcium status ?
This question is the subject of vast research.
Researchers are looking for a link between Vitamin D deficiency and obesity.
Vitamin D has recently been shown to lower leptin secretion. Leptin is a hormone produced by fat cells and is involved in weight regulation. It is thought that the hormone signals the brain when fat cells are "full," but exactly how the hormone controls weight is not entirely clear.
Additionally, obesity by itself probably further worsens vitamin D deficiency due to the decreased bioavailability of vitamin D from skin and dietary sources, because of its being deposited in body fat.
Orlistat, a medication used for weight loss and olestra, a substance added to certain food products, are both intended to bind to fat and prevent the absorption of fat and the associated calories. Because of their effects on fat, orlistat and olestra may also prevent the absorption of fat-soluble vitamins such as vitamin D.
Given this concern and possibility, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) now requires that vitamin D and other fat soluble vitamins (namely, A, E, and K) be added to food products containing olestra. Furthermore, physicians who prescribe orlistat typically add a multivitamin with fat soluble vitamins to the regimen.
