Vitamin D Needs

Posted by in News

… only 63 days until the book release!



Vitamin D is not only good for you, it’s necessary.  Approximately 1000 IU of Vitamin D is needed daily in order to ensure sufficient Vitamin D.  This amount could also reduce your chances of certain cancers, osteoarthritis, depression, osteoporosis and heart disease.

If you do not get your Vitamin D from the sun, a supplement or eating Vitamin D rich foods may do the trick.  This vitamin can readily be found in Vitamin D milk, fish (like sardines or salmon) and most red meats.

On average, twenty minutes in the sun will give you 20,000 IU of Vitamin D.  That’s 20 times the amount you need, so this is not an excuse to go bake in the sun for hours.  A few rays, however, will likely do you good.

Importantly, remember that you’re looking for Vitamin D3, not D2.  Also, don’t forget that it needs to be ingested with fat in order to be absorbed by the body.  This means that fortified orange juice isn’t going to do the trick.
