The researchers of the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) and Diabetes Foundation of India in a recent study revealed that taking Vitamin D supplements can reduce fat and blood sugar levels in obese as well as in pre-diabetic Indian women. With the amount of sunlight India gets one would think Vitamin D deficiency would not be a matter of concern. But in real deficiency of Vitamin D is a serious health problem worldwide. There are studies that depict the extensiveness of vitamin D deficiency which is related to abdominal obesity.

The primary cause for this is the lack of exposure to sunlight as a result of urbanization, extensive use of machines and office-based jobs. But, the study shows that even rural India is a prominent issue. this increases the need for vitamin D supplements
