Vitamin D

Vitamin D is much more important than we thought even 3 years ago.  We now know that our Daily Vitamin D Needs are much higher than official government Minimum Daily Dose.  Vitamin D Deficiency causes many serious problems, including poor absorption of Calcium from diet and supplements causing Osteoporosis.  Other very serious complications of Vitamin D Deficiency affect nerves, muscles, the heart, the immune system and other parts of the body.

Osteoporosis is a growing problem which will affect over half of all women and a quarter of all men during their lifetimes.   The good news is that we are learning better ways to prevent and treat osteoporosis.
