Pure Health Volume 1: Vitamin D: How Do You Get It?

As you may already be aware, there’s no shortage of information on Vitamin D in the news lately.  And, there’s a good reason.  Vitamin D is a critical nutrient for human development, for bone strength, for muscle health, for cardio function, for healthy mood and even robust immunity! However, Vitamin D deficiency is sadly, very much on the rise.

Several major medical groups have been calling for policy changes regarding Vitamin D, especially an increase in the recommended daily allowance as well as new deficiency guidelines.  The current RDA for Vitamin D is 400 IU, which many researchers and vitamin D advocates agree is too low, and some are even calling for it to be raised to amounts including 10 times that amount, or 4000 IU.

There are many sources of Vitamin D and here are some of the top approaches to getting it:

  1. Experts advise that sunlight is the most affordable and accessed the easiest.  About 15 minutes in the sun daily is very helpful.  Of course too much can be a problem too. But, fears of the sun prevent most Americans from getting enough sun exposure.
  2. Another excellent option is basic Vitamin D supplementation.  Most experts recommend the Vitamin D3 form called Cholecalciferol.
  3. Followed by the consumption of eggs, fish and cod liver oil.
