(NYSE: USNA), in conjunction with The Orthopedic Specialty Hospital (TOSH), suggests that inflammation may cause a decrease in the body's vitamin D levels. The study examined levels of vitamin D in twelve adult males between the ages of 18 and 45 recovering from anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) surgery.

"Preserving or maintaining a healthy vitamin D level is essential to the function of a variety of physiological systems. We plan to further investigate the influence of vitamin D supplements on vitamin D levels during inflammation."
