The #1 Vitamin You Need Now!

Okay, I am not a doctor, so don’t think I really know what I am talking about.  I only know what I read, what the doctor in my family recommends, and how it has worked for me.

Just before going to bed last evening I was reading a magazine called Health, the article on vitamin D caught my attention.  For about 2 years now I have been taking vitamin D on a regular basis.  I don’t think I have had a cold for over a year.  I really think it has helped my immune system.

The article states you can fight breast cancer, heart disease, weight gain and more with vitamin D.

More than one third of all women fail to get enough D for healthy bones and more than 75 percent of us lack the higher amounts needed for the vitamin to do its disease fighting best.

The more studies done the more it is believed that D is a real cancer fighter and who can’t use that help these days?

For each minute that you spend in peak summer sunlight your body can produce about 1,000 IU of vitamin D.  Of course, you have to watch out for too much sun and sun screen blocks the vitamin.

I take 2,000 units a day.  It is a good idea to be tested just to see your level of D and then you can decide what you need to do.

I hope you will look into this vitamin, we can use all the help we can get.
