Actually, This Vitamin is a Hormone

The vitamin we are talking about is of course vitamin D, which despite its name is actually a hormone. Vitamin D affects every cell in our body by influencing the way our genes are expressed this gives vitamin D an incredibly powerful ability to influence our health.

The Problem with Store-Bought Vitamin D

The doses of vitamin D available at most pharmacies and health stores (in the form of D3) are simply too low to work for you. Many studies show that 400 IU of vitamin D daily is not enough to make a difference to your health. 400IU may be a subclinical dose, which in medical term means that it is too low to produce a measurable result. In some cases, you would need to take as many as 10 tablets a day to get an adequate amount!


Take 1000 to 2000 IU of vitamin D3 a day.Get some sun!
