    Prevention of skeletal muscle insulin resistance by dietary cod protein in high fat-fed rats.
    Lavigne C, Tremblay F, Asselin G, Jacques H, Marette A.
    Am J Physiol Endocrinol Metab. 2001 Jul;281(1):E62-71.
    PMID: 11404223

    These data demonstrate that feeding cod protein prevents obesity-induced muscle insulin resistance in high fat-fed obese rats at least in part through a direct action of amino acids on insulin-stimulated glucose uptake in skeletal muscle cells.

    Effects of vitamin D supplementation on strength, physical performance, and falls in older persons: a systematic review.
    Latham NK, Anderson CS, Reid IR.
    J Am Geriatr Soc. 2003 Sep;51(9):1219-26. Review.
    PMID: 12919233
    DOI: 10.1046/j.1532-5415.2003.51405.

    Conclusion: Although there is insufficient evidence that vitamin D supplementation alone improves physical performance in older people, some data suggest a benefit from vitamin D combined with calcium supplementation, but this requires confirmation in large, well-designed trials.

    Vitamin D-Related Changes in Physical Performance: A Systematic Review.
    Annweiler C, Schott AM, Berrut G, Fantino B, Beauchet O.
    J Nutr Health Aging. 2009;13(10):893-898.
    PMID: 19924350

    Conclusions: The findings show that the association between vitamin D and physical performance remains controversial. Observational studies and clinical trials yielded divergent results, which highlights the complex and to date still poorly understood association between serum vitamin D concentration or vitamin D supplementation and physical performance.

    Vitamin D and its role in skeletal muscle.
    Ceglia L.
    Curr Opin Clin Nutr Metab Care. 2009 Sep 18. [Epub ahead of print]
    PMID: 19770647

    SUMMARY: Further studies are needed to fully characterize the underlying mechanisms of vitamin D action in human muscle tissue, to understand how these actions translate into changes in muscle cell morphology and improvements in physical performance, and to define the 25-hydroxyvitamin D level at which to achieve these beneficial effects in muscle.

Vitamin D for Pain - 0 views

  •  
    According to peer-reviewed clinical research, inadequacies of vitamin D have been linked to chronic musculoskeletal pain of various types, muscle weakness or fatigue, fibromyalgia syndrome, rheumatic disorders, osteoarthritis, hyperesthesia, migraine headaches, and other somatic complaints. It also has been implicated in the mood disturbances of chronic fatigue syndrome and seasonal affective disorder.

    Current best evidence demonstrates that supplemental vitamin D can help to resolve or alleviate chronic pain and fatigue syndromes in many patients who have been unresponsive to other therapies. Vitamin D therapy is easy for patients to self-administer, is well tolerated, and is very economical. The documents on this page provide detailed background information and practice recommendations.

    Vitamin D A Key Player In Overall Health Of Several Body Organs, Says Biochemist

    In a paper published in the August issue of the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, Norman identifies vitamin D's potential for contributions to good health in the adaptive and innate immune systems, the secretion and regulation of insulin by the pancreas, the heart and blood pressure regulation, muscle strength and brain activity. In addition, access to adequate amounts of vitamin D is believed to be beneficial towards reducing the risk of cancer.

    Norman also lists 36 organ tissues in the body whose cells respond biologically to vitamin D. The list includes bone marrow, breast, colon, intestine, kidney, lung, prostate, retina, skin, stomach and the uterus.

    Vitamin D supplementation improves neuromuscular function in older people who fall.
    Dhesi JK, Jackson SH, Bearne LM, Moniz C, Hurley MV, Swift CG, Allain TJ.
    Age Ageing. 2004 Nov;33(6):589-95.
    PMID: 15501836
    doi:10.1093/ageing/afh20 9

    CONCLUSIONS: vitamin D supplementation, in fallers with vitamin D insufficiency, has a significant beneficial effect on functional performance, reaction time and balance, but not muscle strength. This suggests that vitamin D supplementation improves neuromuscular or neuroprotective function, which may in part explain the mechanism whereby vitamin D reduces falls and fractures.

  •  
    Soccer players and exercise enthusiasts now have another reason to reach for lowfat chocolate milk after a hard workout, suggests a new study from James Madison University presented at the American College of Sports Medicine annual meeting. Post-exercise consumption of lowfat chocolate milk was found to provide equal or possibly superior muscle recovery compared to a high-carbohydrate recovery beverage with the same amount of calories

Vitamin D Tied To Muscle Power In Adolescent Girls - 0 views

  •  
    ScienceDaily (Feb. 10, 2009) - Vitamin D is significantly associated with muscle power and force in adolescent girls, according to a new study. Although vitamin D is naturally produced in the body through exposure to direct sunlight, vitamin D deficiency has become widely common in the United States. Vitamin D deficiency has been shown to have a significant negative impact on muscle and bone health, and can lead to conditions including osteoporosis and rickets.
