|Are you Deficient in Vitamin D?
It's quite simple to find out. Are you getting 2-3 hours of direct sunlight per week with no sunscreen? Are you taking Vitamin D supplement or Cod Liver Oil daily? Probably not!
Although you can obtain vitamin D from the sun, we tend not to these days since we work indoors and are scared of sun exposure or lather up with sunblock. The result is that 90% of the country is vitamin D deficient. This means YOU.
Consequences of vitamin D deficiency include:
* Generalized bone pain or isolated bone pain (Osteomalacia)
* Muscle aches
* Weakened immune system
* Breast, ovarian, prostate, and colon cancer
* Leukemia in children
* Kidney disease or kidney stones
* High blood pressure
* Cardiovascular disease
* Autoimmune disease prevention (type I diabetes, MS)
* Weakened liver function
General maintenance guidelines for Vitamin D: Infants, children, adolescents: 400 IU, Adults under age 50: 400-600 IU, Adults over age 50: 800- 1000 IU. If you are deficient, higher doses will be needed to correct the deficiency. Have your blood levels checked by your doctor. Click HERE for a complete discussion about vitamin D.
