A Closer Look at Vitamin D’s Importance

  • 85-90% of people are deficient to severely deficient in Vitamin D
  • The FDA’s recommended 400 IU may not be near enough, around 5000 IU/day may be the optimal dose. 
  • Strong evidence supports that Vitamin D is important in strengthening the immune system, especially against respiratory infections.
  • Vitamin D deficiency may increase the risk of many cancers, autoimmune disorders, and obesity.
