A while ago I attended an amazing health convention where the main speaker discussed Vitamin D. It was too good to share!
The speaker was Dr. Myron Wentz, World-Renowned Microbiologist/Immunologist, Winner of the Albert Einstein Lifetime Achievement Award. Here was my takeaway.
The sun is as essential to your cells as oxygen. A Vitamin D deficiency is the most undiagnosed & missed health opportunity in the world.
Excess vitamin D can be stored in cells to be activated at any time!
The further you live from the equator the higher your risk of dying of cancer.
Your body needs 15-30 min exposure to the sun BEFORE sunscreen. Even SPF 15 sunscreen eliminates the body’s ability of vitamin D production by 90%
– improve fertility
– lowers chronic inflammation
– weight control
– prevents strokes and dementia
– raises mental cognition
– increases muscle strength
– stimulates insulin production and sensitivity
Is it a coincidence that colds and flus MOST ALWAYS come in the fall/winter and when the kids go back to school indoors??
Autumn, when the sun fades, is when flu season sets in
High doses of Vitamin D (from a QUALITY source) can be more effective at avoiding the flu, than the flu shot!
One study reported 90% drop in respiratory infections when supplemented with 2000IU of vitamin D vs. RDA level of 400IU.
George & I each take approximately 5,000IU of Vitamin D per day. Pick some up from the front desk of the gym.
