Vitamin D update – up to 8,000 IUs needed daily

Don’t let anyone downplay the ability of vitamin D to prevent cancer, a new study appearing in the journal Anticancer Research lays out the simple, powerful truth about vitamin D that I’ve been teaching for years: A typical adults needs 4,000 – 8,000 IUs of vitamin D each day to prevent cancer, MS and type-1 diabetes, not the ridiculously low 400 – 800 IUs recommended by the U.S. government. The new research was conducted by scientists at the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine and Creighton University School of Medicine in Omaha.

This research establishes the relationship between vitamin D dosage and circulating vitamin D levels in the blood.  Vitamin D turns out to be one of the simplest, safest and most affordable ways to prevent degenerative disease and sharply reduce long-term health care costs. Up to 8,000 IUs needed daily “We found that daily intakes of vitamin D by adults in the range of 4,000 to 8,000 IU [international units] are needed to maintain blood levels of vitamin D metabolites in the range needed to reduce by about half the risk of several diseases — breast cancer, colon cancer, multiple sclerosis and type 1 diabetes,” said Dr. Cedric Garland.
