Could You Be Deficient in Vitamin D? Most Likely…

  • April 19, 2012

If you work indoors then there is a good chance that you too might be low in vitamin D. Getting your levels checked allows you to know if you are at greater risk of developing cancer, heart disease, anxiety, depression and osteoporosis.

With over 50% of the population deficient in vitamin D, it is a good idea to assess your levels. Even though it is recommended to take 800 IUs daily by the FDA , to attain proper levels at least 4,000 IUS should be attained daily. Furthermore, if you are currently deficient it is recommended you take 10,000 IUs daily until normal levels are reached.
