1 in 5 kids get little vitamin D, study says

This article from this morning's Charlotte Observer states that 20% or more children under age 11 do not get adequate amounts of Vitamin D. Actually, I would be surprised if its ONLY 1 in 5 children-----Vitamin D deficiency is rampant in our society. I think right now one of the biggest problems (for both big and little people) is that there is absolutely no concensus about how much Vitamin D is needed. It is becoming clear that the old recommendations of 400-600 IU's is woefully inadequate, but I've heard recommendations ranging anywhere from 1000-5000 IU's daily (I take 5000 IU's under a doctors supervision-----always check with your own practitioner.)

  1. Herbal energy supplement better enhances our immune system rather than those artificial energy boosters since it is made from natural elements.

  2. Im thirty-six and it is hard to keep up with my girlfriend who is twenty-four. She loves to go to clubs and party all night. I do to, but I don't have the energy that she has and that I used to have. I tried a lot of products that claim to give you energy, but some were ineffective and others made me sick. Trip2night had a perfect blend. I got the energy boost I needed without an upset stomach. It is easy to take. Comes in a powdered form and mixes easily. Just follow the directions and you too will enjoy this product!
