40% of the world is deficient in Vitamin D…are you?

Your body can make its own Vitamin D from sunlight and a very small amount comes from a few foods you eat. When your Vitamin D levels are low, sun exposure is not enough to increase that number especially if you live in the Chicago land area.

Some of the benefits of Vitamin D include:

  • Boosts your immune system’s ability to fight infection
  • Improved muscle function
  • Improved cardiovascular function, for a healthy heart and circulation
  • Improved respiratory health, for healthy lungs and airways
  • Brain development
  • Cancer fighting effects

A lack of Vitamin D has also been linked to some other conditions such as cancer, asthma, type-II diabetes, high blood pressure, depression, Alzheimer’s and autoimmune diseases like multiple sclerosis, Crohn’s Disease and type-I diabetes.

What is the ideal level?

The ideal level to aim for is between 60-80 ng/ml.  Most doctors are happy if your numbers are over thirty, but new research shows a large reduction in the incidence of chronic disease in patients whose levels were consistently over 60.

We recommend that adults take 5,000 IU/day of Vitamin D supplement in order to reach and stay at this level.
