Researchers looked at more than 3,000 infants who were given either 100,000 IU of vitamin D3 supplements or a placebo once every three months for nearly two years, and found no differences in the incidence of diarrhea between the two groups. Vitamin D supplementation also did not result in reduced average time until first bout of diarrhea, according to the study in the journal Pediatrics.
