... high-dose vitamin D provides relief from sunburn ?

A study (source at the bottom of the e-mail) investigated this in 2017.

Subjects should take a high dose of vitamin D within the first hour after sunburn. Then reduces the vitamin quite significantly:

  • Red skin
  • Swelling
  • inflammation

The 20 participants in the study were given either a placebo preparation or 50,000, 100,000 or 200,000 IU of vitamin D one hour after they had suffered a sunburn. The subjects and their sunburn were then examined 24, 48 and 72 hours and 1 week after vitamin D intake. Skin samples were also taken in order to be able to carry out further tests.

Conclusion of the study: The higher the vitamin D level was in the participants, the less reddened the skin was . At the same time, these subjects showed an enormous increase in the activity of those genes responsible for the main repair.
