We live an area that has limited sun exposure. The current research is clear that Vitamin D plays a large role in our immune function, decreasing inflammation and in general protecting us from a host of diseases and disease process. We need to supplement our bodies to receive the best benefits we can from Vitamin D.

How much do I need? That is a good question. The current accepted level is 37ng/dl. That is the amount that is recommended so we don't get Rickets. That is not a problem currently. However, the recommended allowances have not been updated to produce the best benefits for the body. Current literature shows that the optimal levels are between 60-80 ng/dl for the most protection. I personally try to stay around 70-75 ng/dl.

It is important to remember that before you start Vitamin D supplementation, blood testing is essential to determine your levels so you can properly gauge the daily amounts needed to achieve and maintain optimal levels. If you have any further questions, always feel free to contact our office at 253-683-4277 or online at www.docjoy.com.
