Vitamin D deficiency? Not a problem…
“Vitamin D is essential for strong bones, because it helps the body use calcium from the diet. Traditionally, vitamin D deficiency has been associated with rickets, a disease in which the bone tissue doesn’t properly mineralize, leading to soft bones and skeletal deformities.” Web MD
A sure fire way to determine if you have a vitamin D deficiency is by getting a blood test.
Dutch athletes (who happen to be epidemically deficient in vitamin D) were given 400, 1100 or 2200 IU of vitamin D3 over the course of one year.
It only took three months for the athletes who took 2200 IU of vitamin D3 daily to reach a healthy amount. When vitamin D levels raised too high, researchers backed the dose back to 400 IU and this was sufficient to maintain a healthy level.
