Update on Vitamin D

July 15, 2008


Last month I mentioned the research on Vitamin D and the impact that it has on our health. Since that article there have been several more bits of research substantiating the need to evaluate this vitamin / hormone.

One recent study published last month in the Americal Journal of Clinical Nutrition showed the progress in the trend towards raising the recommended daily vitamin D dose to a range between 3800-5000 IU.

Now as I stated in my last article due to deficiencies or other conditions an individual may need more than this amount for a short period of time to get levels into a "healthy" range. If this is the case (as it has been with many of my patients) be sure to get evaluated before, during, and after supplementation.

By monitoring your blood levels of 25-OH Vit. D in this manner you will safely dose yourself and know exactly when to reduce your intake to a more typical dosing schedule.
Bottom line is knowledge is power and by empowering yourself with this information you can take greater control of your health and enjoy the benefits of less pain and greater vitality. Here is a link to more information on the type of nutritional work I provide.

If you or a loved one are dealing with unresolved health issues then give us a call and we will help you solve them from an entirely new angle. We strive to provide perspective of wellness and educate our patients how to enable the power that made the body to heal the body!
