I can answer all these questions for you!
Taking Vit. D in large doses once a week is a bad idea! It is not only ineffective, but can be dangerous! You may not know that other key nutrients (magnesium, for instance) effect your Vit.D levels. You may also wonder why your Vit.D level stay low even with supplementation. Why do you get sick more during winter time?
Here is some information, however one size does not fit all. I offer individualized approach. Please contact me for further assistance.
Vitamin D is an essential nutrient that helps to regulate our body's calcium levels, ensure proper hormone production, helps regulate mood and even strengthen the immune system.
Studies show many North Americans are deficient in vitamin D year round, and levels are even lower during the winter months. Besides getting safe sun exposure and supplementation, including foods that contain vitamin D can help increase and maintain healthy vitamin D levels.
Fatty fish like salmon is one of the best sources of Vitamin D, with a single 3-ounce serving containing more than 450 IU. Other excellent sources of vitamin D include mackerel, tuna, sardines, egg yolks and mushrooms.
