Take Vitamin D to Lose Belly Fat

Updated: Aug 21, 2020



Visceral belly fat is fat that is deep inside the abdominal cavity surrounding the organs. It is considered "metabolically active" and is linked to greater risk for poor health and a number of diseases. One study tested Vitamin D levels in an elderly Korean population and found that those with the lowest Vitamin D levels had the greatest percentage of visceral fat. The trend was particularly pronounced in men, and there was a correlation between greater visceral belly-fat levels and loss of lean muscle mass, indicating poor body composition.


Recommended daily intake of Vitamin D for adults is around 5,000 IUs or 35,000-50,000 IU twice per week. Recent research suggests that taking large doses is most effective.
