Vitamin D Supplementation

Martin Pall of Washington State University has proposed increased nitric oxide synthesis as a mechanism for CFS and other conditions. In this paper, he and collaborator AD Hoeck explore the possibility that an observed deficiency of vitamin D may chronically activate a pro-inflammatory response in illnesses characterized by inflammation and fatigue and they suggest randomized clinical trials of calcium and vitamin D(3) supplementation to test the theory.
