The majority of our population is deficient in vitamin D (levels measured below 32 ng/ml). This vital nutrient deficiency can increase your risk of many issues including osteoporosis and multiple sclerosis. In addition, an increased risk for strokes, diabetes (types 1 and 2), depression, breast and colon cancer, heart disease, gum disease, asthma, depression, rickets and more.
On the upside, if you are getting an adequate amount of D3 (Cholecalciferol) each day, your body is reaping the countless benefits. Some of which include less illnesses like cold and flu, healthier skin and hair and even weight management.
The recommended dose used to be pretty low, but today people are taking up to 10,000 international units (IU) a day!
Here’s an easy to use at home Vitamin D test to help you find out what your levels are. You simply take your own blood sample and send it to the lab.
There are also many Vitamin D supplements to choose from to ensure you’re getting an adequate amount.
