The Health Ranger reporting on a new study conducted by scientists at the University of California
San Diego School of Medicine and Creighton University School of
Medicine in Omaha says that people ought to be taking 4000 to 8000 IU’s
of vitamin D.
“We found that daily intakes of vitamin D by adults in the range
of 4,000 to 8,000 IU [international units] are needed to maintain blood
levels of vitamin D metabolites in the range needed to reduce by about
half the risk of several diseases — breast cancer, colon cancer,
multiple sclerosis and type 1 diabetes,” said Dr. Cedric Garland.
Three thousand people participated in the study and they were already
taking D supplements. Nevertheless, 90 percent of those tested were
deficient. Other studies show that at least 70 percent of the general
population are deficient.
This may explain the prevalence of so many chronic illnesses in this country. The following illnesses have been linked to vitamin D deficiency:
- heart disease
- autoimmune diseases
- 17 different cancers
- chronic fatigue
- chronic pain
Fortunately, our clinic has a very easy, affordable solution. Biotics Research Corp. produces Bio-D-mulsion Forte
in easy to take, easy to digest drops. Two to three drops per day
will give you 4 to 6,000 IU’s of vitamin D and soon get your body the
nutrient level it needs to protect you from the effects of this
deficiency syndrome. This D3 is delivered to the body as a
micro-emulsion. Therefore the body is able to digest it immediately.
People who have liver or gall bladder problems have difficulty digesting
fats. Vitamin D is a fat soluble vitamin which is why some people are
deficient even if they are taking a D supplement.
We are still months away from those sunny free-vitamin-D-days of
summer. Call today and come in to see if you might need this supplement.
Start giving your body the tools it needs to have vibrant health. Give
yourself the best chance you can get to avoid or even reverse many
devastating diseases that are associated with vitamin D deficiency.
