Some studies show that up to 97% of Americans are deficient in Vitamin D.
You probably already know that Vitamin D is important for bone strength and integrity. But did you know that is also helps with hormones and is a cofactor for calcium and magnesium absorption?
More importantly, low Vitamin D levels can often be to blame for depression and Seasonal Affective Disorder. The FDA has set the “Adequate Intake” of Vitamin D at 400iu, but studies show that much more is needed if Vitamin D levels are low. Salmon, sardines, egg yolks, and whole raw milk are excellent sources of Vitamin D.
When taking a Vitamin D supplement, it is best to take it in a fatty liquid suspension.
Or, if taking a Vitamin D capsule, take it with a fatty food like nuts, cheese, or meat.
I use Cod Liver Oil D to maintain healthy Vitamin D levels in my body. Cod liver oil supplements naturally have high amounts of Vitamin D within the fish oil. In the processing, Nordic Natural also adds in a little extra natural Vitamin D.
