Getting serious about vitamin D

There’s a new movement underway by the Council for Responsible Nutrition–a really excellent group of watch-dog researchers who take their job seriously.

The CRN is urging the Feds to change their official “dietary guidelines” regarding vitamin D. Too few people are getting adequate vitamin D, according to the CRN. And I couldn’t agree more.

The problem is, the studies on vitamin D have been inconsistent. And the so-called “experts” running the show haven’t arrived at a consensus regarding how much vitamin D people need.

Which means people are getting confusing, conflicting advice

So allow me to fill in the blanks.

I recommend at least 2,000 to 5,000 IU per day of vitamin D3 (the active form of the nutrient). And, make sure to have your blood levels checked regularly.
