Abstract

Introduction: the incidence of Metabolic Syndrome (MetS) has increased in recent years and is categorized as a serious global health problem. It is defined as a set of metabolic conditions that increases the risk of cardiovascular disease and diabetes. While Vitamin D (Vit. D) is a fat-soluble prohormone with altered serum levels focused on vit. D deficiency is a part of the new functions related to various diseases.
Objective: this study aimed to investigate the scientific evidence and determine the relationship between serum vitamin D levels and the risk of developing MetS.
Methods: for the execution of the literature review article, a documentary research method was used through a search for information in journal databases such as SciELO, PubMed, Scopus, Google Scholar, Science, and Medline.
Results: the articles investigated provide relevant information on the physiopathology of metabolic syndrome and its various components, as well as the physiopathology of Vit. D deficit and supplementation of the same, evidence was also found in the relationship between Vit. D deficit and MetS.
Conclusion: low serum levels or deficits in vit. D may be related to different components that contribute to the development of MetS. Vitamin D supplementation has significant positive benefits in individuals with MetS.
