In the June 11 edition of eHealth, Jeff told you about the latest study on vitamin D. The study concluded that participants taking regular vitamin D supplements showed dramatically lower rates of all types of cancer.
Â Since then, vitamin makers have reported a huge boom in sales, as many people have rushed out to pick up a bottle or two of the newest wonder supplement.
Â I think itâs great that supplements are being recognized as being so beneficial to your health; and that consumers like you are listening.
Â Vitamin D is known to be the least expensive vitamin on the market — costing on average $5 for a bottle. And maybe thatâs part of why sales have jumped so high, so quickly. But I urge you to remember, this is your health weâre talking about.
Â There are very few people I know who donât have at least one family member who has been touched by some form of cancer. And with so many risk-factors involved with cancer itâs almost impossible to know whether you will or will not suffer from it in your lifetime.
Â So how do you put a cost on decreasing those risks? You canât!
Â When you look at buying a vitamin D supplement, remember that the recommended daily dose is 1,000 IU. So read the label carefully — how much is in each capsule? How many capsules will you need to take in a day?
Â In the meantime, Iâm going to get back to the lab and see what I can do to bring you the best vitamin D supplement available — from a name you know and trust!
