Vitamin D’s role in bone health is important post-menopause, but higher serum levels of vitamin D have also been associated with lower levels of all cancers, especially breast cancer, multiple sclerosis, heart attacks (in men) and even type 1 diabetes.

A study published in “Cancer Causes & Control” in March, 2010 indicated that vitamin D can help balance the levels of estrogen and progesterone in young women and help prevent a hormonal imbalance that might promote breast cancer. A subsequent 2017 study in post menopausal women at higher risk for breast cancer showed that higher serum vitamin D levels were associated with lower breast cancer over a 5 year follow-up period.
