Professor Peacock collaborates on research with Dartmouth College US

UMS member Professor Peacock collaborates with colleagues from Dartmouth College US on study published in the Journal of Nutrition.

The study is titled:  Lifestyle and other factors explain one-half of the variability in the Serum 25-Hydroxyvitamin D response to cholesterol supplementation in health adults.

Researchers concluded that ‘the factors that most affected changes in serum 25(OH)D concentrations in response to cholecalciferol supplementation included sex, baseline serum 25(OH)D, supplement intake adherence, skin-covering clothes, physical activity, and season. Genetic factors did not play a major role’.
