A recent Chinese study revealed that the more people drink caffeine, which is found in many products, especially coffee, the more likely they are to suffer from vitamin D deficiency, one of the most important nutritional supplements in the human body.
The study, published by the International Journal of Vitamin and Nutrition Research, analyzed nutrition data for more than 13,000 participants in the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey between 2005 and 2006, ages 30 to 47.
After collecting the data, the researchers neutralized all health-related side factors that might affect the results of their research and focused on the results of clinical examinations that provided information about (vitamin D) and regular caffeine intake, and concluded that high caffeine consumption reduces the body's ability to absorb (vitamin D). It leads to lower levels.
The study pointed to the need for more research to confirm these results, especially among older individuals who were included in the research sample.
