So some of you may be wondering - what is the number one supplement I recommend? Without hesitation, I recommend all of my patients to begin with Vitamin D3. Funny thing is, it is actually a hormone and not a vitamin. The two primary means we get Vitamin D is from the sun and supplements, as it is very difficult to get enough through diet. With the concerns about sun burns and skin cancer, almost everyone needs to take a Vitamin D3 supplement to reach optimal blood levels. And that is key - optimal blood levels. Next time you have blood work done, ask your doctor to include a blood test for Vitamin D, the specific test being 25(OH)D test. To receive all the benefits Vitamin D provides, your level should be between 50-80ng/ml which usually requires a dose of 2000 to 5000IU daily.
The benefits of proper Vitamin D levels are numerous - bone health, cancer prevention, autoimmune disease prevention/treatment, heart disease, Alzheimer's, diabetes, depression, anxiety, sleep apnea and many more. Now you may be thinking - such a great supplement must be expensive. The great thing is even the pharmaceutical grade, high quality supplements will often cost you less than five dollars a month!
