What Does Vitamin D Do?
Like all steroid hormones, Vitamin D is involved in the production of proteins and enzymes which are essential for wellness and prevention. Vitamin D promotes calcium absorption and maintains blood levels of calcium and phosphate for proper bone development and muscle action. Some of the other roles of Vitamin D are assistance in the regulation of cell growth, immune function, neuromuscular action, and regulation of inflammation. It assists the action of insulin, in the production of antibiotics, and has been shown to have a significant role in cancer prevention.
Many cells have Vitamin D receptors and many genes are influenced by the action of Vitamin D. This is why being deficient in Vitamin D can lead to increased risk of many diseases.
How much Vitamin D Do I need?
According to the most current scientific data, human adults can require supplementation with up to 5000 IUs per day. It appears that it would be prudent to ensure a minimal daily intake of 4000 IUs of vitamin D for women, 5000 IUs for men, and 2,000 IUs for children. Check with your health professional for your individual needs.
It would also be prudent to have vitamin D levels tested. The ideal range for optimal health is 50-80 ng/ml.
At maximum daily dosage, each bottle will last approximately 3-4 months or more.
What About Toxicity?
According to Dr. Robert Heaney, humans utilize approximately 4000 IUs of vitamin D3 per day. Heaney et al. 2003 Am. J Clin. Nutr. 77: 204-210. Dr. John Cannell MD, the Executive Director of the Vitamin D council stated in a recent Vitamin D Council on-line newsletter ‘The Truth About Vitamin D Toxicity” is that there is no evidence anywhere in the published literature that even 10,000 IUs per day of vitamin D is toxic to humans and that human toxicity does likely not occur until over 40,000 IUs of daily consumption. He goes on to state that “In fact, living in America today while worrying about vitamin D toxicity is like dying of thirst in the desert while worrying about drowning.” In other words any danger associated with vitamin D is from deficiency NOT toxicity.
