Get Your Daily Dose of Vitamin D
Most all of us experience some level of vitamin D deficiency. In fact, new research is emerging, showing that current requirements may not be enough to receive the maximum benefits from the vitamin, Kimberly Altman, M.S., R.D., LD/N, dietician, at Pritikin Longevity Center, tells us. Health professionals at Pritikin are now recommending an intake of 1,000-2,000 IU (International Units) per day.
Vitamin D can help reduce the risk of cancer and osteoporosis, and other benefits include blood pressure regulation, healthy bones and teeth, improved immune system and more, and while sunlight and supplements are the best sources, we thought you could use an additional boost with some foods with vitamin D, especially with the dreary months ahead.
