Food Is Not Your Enemy

Calcium and Vitamin D Supplements Not Necessary?

A new report by the Institute of Medicine indicates that not only do we likely not need calcium supplements, but that perhaps doctors have been going overboard in declaring pretty much everyone vitamin D deficient.

Most people get enough calcium from food, the report indicates, and we actually need less vitamin D than we’ve been told in recent years.

Of course, this report is further confirmation that there’s a lot of conflicting, confusing information about nutrition out there. There seems to be a study to support every point of view about how we should eat. Regarding vitamin D, though it is suspect that suddenly everyone appears to have a deficiency, I do have clients who have noticed a real difference in their health when they’ve addressed what their doctors told them were low levels of D.

There are so many conflicting reports these days, I think the best thing to do is try a small dose and see if you feel any benefits, I think the only issues with vitamins is people taking way to many and in huge doses and seeing toxic effects.
