• National Guidelines Challenged

The Institute of Medicine (IOM), which is an esteemed organization, part of the National Academy of Sciences, has been challenged by researchers in the study of Vitamin D. Scientists at two different universities have found that the IOM has miscalculated the amount of daily recommend Vitamin D by a factor of 10!  The IOM recommended 600-700 iu per day when in fact 7,000 iu per day from all sources is the recommendation for reduction of diseases related to Vitamin D deficiency.

This is vital information. It is estimated that we could achieve a 67-70% reduction in breast cancer, type I diabetes, multiple sclerosis, and colon cancer—WITHIN ONLY 5 YEARS! Adequate Vitamin D levels also lower risk of ovarian cancer and heart attacks.

A recent study showed that Vitamin D improves aggressive prostate cancer and in some cases allowed the cancer to regress and disappear from imaging studies altogether. It did this by fighting inflammation in the prostate gland.

The Sklar Center recommends getting your Vitamin D level checked, then calculating how much Vitamin D you will need to take to get your blood level to 60 ng/ml. Be sure you are using a good quality Vitamin D like Replenish D Forte from the Sklar Vitality Store.
