A recent press release form the University of California-San Diego report shows even more positive findings about Vitamin D and the benefits associated with the prevention of breast cancer. “Vitamin D metabolites increase communication between cells by switching on a protein that blocks aggressive cell division,” said Cedric F. Garland, DrPH. “As long as vitamin D receptors are present tumor growth is prevented and kept from expanding its blood supply. Vitamin D receptors are not lost until a tumor is very advanced. This is the reason for better survival in patients whose vitamin D blood levels are high.”

“There is no compelling reason to wait for further studies to incorporate vitamin D supplements into standard care regimens since a safe dose of vitamin D needed to achieve high serum levels above 30 nanograms per milliliter has already been established,” said Garland.

As we have reported on this blog before, Vitamin D is essential for many of the body’s vital functions. One of the best sources of producing Vitamin D is exposure to the sun. The downside is over-exposure to UV rays can damage your skin and cause skin cancer possibly leading to melanoma. Using MT2 and sunscreen is a better way to be in the sun and reap the benefits of exposure. Maximum Strength Melanotan 2 is used by thousands to protect the dermis and maintain high levels of Vitamin D. It has also been determined that Vitamin D is effective is slowing the reproduction of other cancers.

So get out in the sun but be sure to take the necessary precautions.
