Vitamin D deficiency/insufficiency is a worldwide public health issue that has been linked to numerous inflammatory disorders, including periodontitis. There is increasing support for a role for adequate vitamin D levels in overall health. Populations with darker skin color have a higher prevalence of vitamin D deficiency/insufficiency and periodontitis. The purpose of this small pilot study was to investigate the influence of 12 weeks of 25(OH)D vitamin D supplementation on mediators of systemic inflammation in dark-skinned, periodontitis patients.

A total of 23 patients with moderate to severe periodontitis were randomly assigned to the vitamin D group or Placebo group and received intensive single visit scaling and root planing to elicit a systemic inflammatory response.

Vitamin D supplementation (VDS) increased serum 25(OH)D levels approximately 2-fold over baseline levels; moreover, VDS group had reduced peripheral blood CD3 and CD3+CD8+ cytotoxic T lymphocyte (CTLs) counts and reduced pro-inflammatory salivary cytokines. In contrast, VDS group had higher levels of the autophagy-related proteins and other proteins crucial for anti-microbial autophagy in whole blood PBMCs.

In conclusion, vitamin D supplementation has multiple benefits for reducing systemic inflammation and promoting induction of autophagy related proteins related to anti-microbial functions.
