Vitamin D: Nature’s Most Important Nutrient
Vitamin D is so important for good health that nature gave us a way to make it. We produce it when the sun’s rays react with cholesterol.However‚ fearing skin cancer‚ most Americans now use sunscreen‚ which blocks Vitamin D production. Aging also reduces our ability to make Vitamin D.Because Vitamin D is also sparse in the diet‚ most of us are left with less than research shows we need. Because Vitamin D is involved in so many bodily functions‚ its deficiency may increase the risks for health challenges Americans most frequently encounter.
How Much Vitamin D Do You Need?
Decades ago‚ the National Academy of Sciences set 400 IU of Vitamin D as the “Daily Value‚” because this is what we need to prevent rickets. It had not yet been discovered that Vitamin D is involved in other aspects of health. Studies at America’s most prestigious medical schools suggest that optimal health requires 2000 IU to 5000 IU of Vitamin D per day. They have also learned that up to 10‚000 IU is safe.
