The Nutrient so Important it Should be FREE for Everyone, Except…

The medical establishment has been scaring people away from vitamin D supplementation for 100 years with nonsense about dangers of vitamin D toxicity.

The truth is most people have been getting barely enough to avoid rickets but not nearly enough for therapeutic health value. We have missed the explosive potential of larger doses of vitamin D.

Seniors are in serious deficit of vitamin D because they get almost no sunshine and their assimilation capacity is diminished.

The proliferation of sunscreens and warnings about skin cancer dangers have greatly diminished the amount of sunshine to which people are exposed. The modern American diet contains very little vitamin D. Cod liver oil is the best dietary source, but it’s not palatable to most people.

Only the people in the South Sea Islands come close to getting enough vitamin D from sunshine. The United States is mostly completely out of reach of enough sunshine, especially in the wintertime.

Studies prove that the flu season is directly related to too little sunshine and, therefore, too little natural vitamin D.

I have long maintained that the medical establishment has intentionally hidden the benefits of vitamin D in order to protect their flu vaccine scam. Imagine my surprise when I read on that the U.K. Scientific Advisory Committee on Nutrition is considering recommending everyone in that country take a 10 microgram vitamin D pill.

What’s this? Has the medical cartel suddenly seen the light? Well, 10 mcg equals 400 international units. That’s not nearly enough.

But in the U.K., it seems the SACN has recognized that 1 in 5 adults and 1 in 6 children are vitamin D-deficient and that the low sunlight levels in that country, particularly in winter months, means the British are at risk. The country’s National Institutes of Health Care Excellence is suggesting “free” supplements and for low-cost supplements be sold in stores.

It seems either doctors are finally taking low vitamin D level dangers seriously or the vitamin D makers have finally bought off the right bureaucrat.

Vitamin D is almost a miracle supplement (it’s really a hormone). It is necessary for bone health, helps the body fight cancer (especially in the breast and prostate) and props up cardiovascular health. It fights the symptoms of muscular sclerosis, fights diabetes and its effects, increases insulin production to help those with type 1 diabetes, treats rheumatoid arthritis, treats psoriasis, and helps ward off Alzheimer’s disease. And it does much, much more.

The Vitamin D Council estimates that 2,000 IUs a day will probably get 75 percent to 80 percent of white Americans vitamin D sufficient if taken every day, while blacks need more due to their increased melanin pigment decreasing skin production of the hormone. But it actually recommends 5,000 IU a day for adults. The U.S. Institute of Medicine recommends 4,000 units a day for everyone over 9 years old. You should never exceed 10,000 IU except under the advice of a medical practitioner.

Make sure your vitamin D supplement is natural vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol) and not synthetic vitamin D2 (ergocalciferol). Most vitamin D prescriptions are for ergocalciferol. Ergocalciferol has been linked to a host of health problems like high calcium levels; nausea; vomiting; constipation; loss of appetite; increased thirst; urinary dysfunction; altered mood and mood swings; severe lethargy; rashes; itching and swelling of the face, mouth and throat; severe dizziness; and breathing problems.
