How to Get Your Vitamin D Within to Healthy Ranges

How to Get Your Vitamin D Within to Healthy Ranges

Story at-a-glance -

  • Vitamin D from sun exposure is the BEST way to optimize your vitamin D levels; exposing a large amount of your skin until it turns the lightest shade of pink, as near to solar noon as possible, is typically necessary to achieve adequate vitamin D production
  • If sun exposure is not an option, a safe tanning bed (with electronic ballasts rather than magnetic ballasts, to avoid unnecessary exposure to EMF fields) can be used
  • As a last resort, a vitamin D3 supplement can be taken orally, but research published by Grassroots Health from the D*Action study shows the average adult needs to take 8,000 IU's of vitamin D per day in order to elevate their levels above 40 ng/ml, which they believe is the absolute minimum for disease prevention
  • There are vitamin D receptors present in virtually every cell and tissue in your body, which is why optimizing your levels impacts such a broad range of conditions, from cancer and depression to the flu and cavities
  • You can find out your vitamin D levels using a 25(OH)D test, also called 25-hydroxyvitamin D. The Grassroots Health D*Action study allows you to test your levels at home
