You can reduce your risk by 7% for each 10nmol/l you raise your vitamin D 25(0H) D level.
Most UK adults, getting outside normal sun exposure, had vitamin d levels around 70nmol/l at the end of this summer, by March that will have dropped to 30nmol/l. so adding 100nmol/l would raise levels throughout the year to around the 125 ~150nmol/l level outdoor nearer naked living naturally attains and maintains. Having vitamin d stored in tissue enables better protection. We only have sufficient Vit d to store after daily needs have been met. Only above 100nmol/l will stores build and only by 125~150nmol/l will stores be significant.
divide the numbers above by 2.5 to get ng/ml.
The other crucial immune function regulator is MELATONIN most people don't get sufficient good quality sleep, Bright light daytime, subdued light evening, total dark night improves circadian rhythm and melatonin secretion.
melatonin is the fulcrum mediating redistribution of energetic investment among physiological processes to maximize fitness and survival
Aging is associated with changes in immune function.
because both vitamin d and melatonin creation at age 75 are just 25% of that of young people. But the cost of maintaining a healthy youthful level of Vit D/Melatonin is less than £20 a year.
