The Sunshine Vitamin For Healthy Bones, Teeth, and Cancer Prevention
Vitamin D increases calcium absorption. Deficiencies of Vitamin D are associated with cancer, osteoporosis, rheumatic pains, and dental disease. It is known as the SUNSHINE vitamin because exposure to sunshine, even as little as 10 minutes per day, promotes the body’s natural production of Vitamin D. Those living in northern climates where sunshine is limited can easily become deficient in Vitamin D. Dietary sources of vitamin D include: fish liver oil and egg yolk.
More recently, higher intakes of vitamin D have been shown to protect the body from cancer, especially prostate and breast cancer. Many authorities are recommending that the recommended adult daily dose should be raised from 400 IU to 1,000 IU. Doses of 1,000-6,000 are not only safe, they may be needed for disease prevention.
Do not use more than 10,000 IU per day without medical supervision because Vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin. Although vitamin D can store in the liver and become toxic, these toxicities were seen in people consuming 30,000IU or more (20 times the recommended dose!) for months. Vitamin D is much safer than we have previously been led to believe.
Suggested dose: Daily adult dose range: 800-2,000 IU. Doses as high as 10,000 IU may be needed to normalize vitamin D levels.
