On another note,

Vitamin D does lower cholesterol

Anyone see any significant changes in blood panels once they started taking D or was there other confounding factors such as diet and exercise?

I'm trying to get some solid numbers to see how much of a change we are talking about since I've been asked a bunch of times about it lowering cholesterol.


LDL carries cholesterol to the skin where it gets transformed by the sun from 7-dehydrocholesterol into active forms. Reduction in need for vitamin D production from skin = lowered cholesterol. + also should decreased LDL, inflammation, etc.
