Vitamin D Deficiency, Professor Haney, Creighton University discussed on Radio Surgery

Automatic TRANSCRIPT

The way these doctors are thinking is look what's the risk versus what's the benefit. It looks like from the studies. There's a tremendous risk associated with vitamin d deficiency. We don't have all the studies we need and we're doing those studies now, but it would be unethical to let people remain vitamin d deficient. While we're conducting all the studies we need to about heart health or bone health or breast or prostate, health or immune system. It would be unethical to let them wait vitamin d deficiency. The problem is that many doctors use antiquated reference ranges, and so if you're levels thirty five they'll tell you. That's okay. It's not okay. Level needs to be fifty or higher and get that adults need five thousand units today again for those just tuning in. I mentioned earlier, you know, I go through the health food store. Look at multivitamins most of them at best at four hundred I use. But when you're looking at the the vitamin d that you can buy by itself as a standalone vitamin most or four hundred I use I saw a couple that were thousand I you tablets, but again that falls far short of that five thousand number, and that's what you get with purity here, why is that so important. There's recently been a study by professor Haney at Creighton university that shows that when you get your level to fifty your body has enough for all the things that needs to do. And it begins to store a little bit of the vitamin d. So if your level is less than fifty your body is basically using up all the vitamin d as fast as you take it for all the things that need to think of vitamin d as a mountain spring with a pool at the top, right? The pool we've always known about is calcium in bone and we've taken enough item in data halfway fill up that calcium in bone.
