Vitamin D helps us absorb calcium. We need calcium for normal bone formation and other good health reasons. The body makes Vitamin D when our skin in directly exposed to the sun. But few of us are getting our vitamin D levels up that way, so eating foods with vitamin D in them, for nutrition, is essential.
Very few foods naturally have vitamin D, here are a few;
*Fortified breakfast cereals, soy milk, and margarine. (Check labels)
Vitamin D may help with Cancer, Heart Disease, Strokes, Bone Fractures, diabetes and depression.
A lot of us have a Vitamin D deficiency and we don’t have to have low levels.
Have your Vitamin D levels checked the next time you see your doctor. Don’t put off something very easy to do. Be of Good Health!
I take 5000+ I.U. daily and try to keep my levels around 75. I heard a doctor talk about the average adult could be 8,000 I.U. a day to keep levels up to 70-75.
Years ago I had my doctor look at my recent chart, my vitamin D levels were 32. No one told me I needed higher levels to be considered. I had health issues that year, coincidence or what?
I'm a survivor, thank God, but why wasn't I told my levels were below healthy?
Double check what your doctor has on your chart. My doctor couldn't give me a reason as to why that wasn't pointed out to me after my physical and blood work.
Do some research for yourself, and talk to your doctor, hopefully you have a doctor that will put you on the right track!
Smiles to your health!
