The researchers stated that, "The supplementation with vitamin D increased serum levels, and this increase is significantly associated with a reduction in the total number of AOM episodes." They also noted that not only did the vitamin D reduce the occurence of recurrent acute otitis media (ear infection) but it also reduced "the risk of uncomplicated episodes of AOM." Nice. Just in time for fall and winter!
