To digest food, your bowels produce lithocholic acid, a digestive juice that can be carcinogenic in high amounts.

Scientists have learned, however, that vitamin D helps your body detoxify and expel excess lithocholic acid before it can cause colon cancer. And now, a 2008 Journal of Oncology study shows it also helps improve survival. Patients in the study were already diagnosed with colorectal cancer. Vitamin D also helps protect against other types of cancer, helps your heart, strengthens your bones by helping your body use calcium, and boosts your immune system function. Your body produces vitamin D in response to sun exposure, most men need to pop a supplement to see this benefit.
