Vitamin D shields against radiation
According to the study published in the International Journal of Low Radiation, calcitriol, an active form of vitamin D, can be used as a protective agent against a low-level nuclear incident.

Previous studies had considered cancer as the main and long-term complication caused by radiation.

The study shows that the oral supplement blocks DNA damage and therefore stops the progression of damaged cells into cancerous tissue.

Calcitriol, 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D3, is the active form of vitamin D known for its important role in the regulation of the blood levels of calcium and phosphorus, and in bone mineralization.
