We all know that Vitamin D is regarded as the sunshine vitamin. Thus, it is known for its role in helping us grow and keep strong bones. As of late, it has been gaining attention in aiding to help fend off various medical problems such as heart disease, colon, ovarian and breast cancer, as well as high blood pressure. In fact, Vitamin D is the only vitamin that experts have found out to deliver this kind of prevention.
It is therefore imperative that we take the recommended dose range of Vitamin D. Normally, a dose that range from 200 IU to 600 IU is good depending on the age of the person. However, many medical experts now even recommend adults to take about 1,000 IU of this vitamin each day. It is noted that the source of vitamin D can be also from food. A cup of milk for instance is normally equivalent to 100 IU. Fatty types of fish can also be a good source of vitamin D.
Personally, I take a Calcium supplement with vitamin D of 400 IU on it. I take it twice a day, which means I still lack 200 IU. I guess, my deficit is obtained from the food I ingest, so that should be alright. How about you?
