Are You Getting Enough Vitamin D? Statistics suggest that 40-50% of otherwise healthy adults and children don’t intake enough Vitamin D. Vitamin D helps your body absorb calcium, but what most people don’t realize is that magnesium aids in activating Vitamin D so that your body can use it.
Daily recommended intake of Vitamin D is based on miscalculations in the original research, contributing to an increase in deficiency and related health issues. Corrections to the calculations indicate the RDA of Vitamin D should be increased to avoid health consequences of inadequate daily intake and deficiency.
Vitamin and mineral deficiencies can often present themselves with symptoms we ignore or assume are just normal parts of life. But things like fatigue, frequent illness, skin problems, changes in hair & fingernails, vision problems, tingling sensations, and dental issues can all be signs of serious dietary deficiency.
Ideally, following a healthy and well-balanced diet should provide your body with all of the vitamins, minerals, and nutrients it needs for optimum health. However, even with our best efforts there are some key nutrients that most people simply are not getting enough of without incorporating nutritional supplements.
Knowing how to select a quality vitamin supplement is important for your safety and efficacy, but difficult conflicting information, hundreds of products, and bad research can complicate the process. How do you find a MultiVitamin that meets your needs? Here’s advice from a nutrition focused pharmacist.
