It seems that vitamin D is the most talked about vitamin in the media at the moment. (See article in the Daily Mail on recent research highlighting the need for supplementation in a much larger proportion of the population than previously thought - especially for those with pale skins.)
In addition to the health concerns discussed in this article, the literature on vitiligo also suggests that the potential to develop the condition - and other autoimmune disorders - increases with vitamin D deficiency. Therefore symptoms and the prognosis of vitiligo could be significantly improved by maintaining the adequate levels of this vitamin.
To ensure adequate level of vitamin D for normal health the average person must absorb 5,000 international units (IU) of vitamin D per day for 2–3 months. The newest vitamin D supplement to reach the market has just been launched by the same suppliers as the other supplements I have used to treat my vitiligo and is exactly that dosage. It is recommended by Professor Greg Whyte, so I shall definitely be adding it to my regimen. (If anyone else would like to try it, it can be ordered here and a 15% discount for vitiligo sufferers is available by quoting discount code VITPR01.)
