Omega-3 and Vitamin D reduce the risk of developing an autoimmune disease


In a recent clinical study, taking Omega-3 and Vitamin D supplements consistently reduced the risk of developing autoimmune diseases by 30% compared with not taking them.

“In past ecologic observations inflammatory bowel disease, multiple sclerosis, and type 2 diabetes have been shown to be more prevalent at northern latitudes, where circulating vitamin D levels are lower,” Dr. Karen Costenbader at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston.

“Both vitamin D and marine omega-3 fatty acids have immunomodulatory and anti-inflammatory properties. Thus, our finding that vitamin D supplements, either alone or in combination with the marine omega-3s, reduce the risk of developing autoimmune disorders is biologically plausible and warrants further study. The findings are exciting because no other preventive therapies are available to reduce the risk of developing these serious health conditions.”

This combination of Omega-3 and Vitamin D are found in Lýsi’s Cod Liver Oil, Kid’s Omega 3 and much more. Lýsi has had the proven combination taken by Icelanders since 1938.
