Many Lacking in Vitamin D Levels
Check this out---Health Day's article on how many American's are deficient in Vitamin D. Most of the new research suggests that the current "recommended daily amounts" of 200 to 400 IU's (International Units) are ridiculously inadequate. More recent studies are advising patients to consume closer to 1000-2000 IU's daily (but always check with your doctor first, I get crazy when people talk about reading a study and simply start taking a vitamin without talking to their doctor or getting their levels checked!). I take 5000 IU's of Vitamin D daily (with physician blessing), and I feel great!
