Why we should take it seriously: Vitamin D deficiency in winter

Why we should take it seriously: Vitamin D deficiency in winter

In the latitudes where we live, it is often difficult for our bodies to produce enough vitamin D from October to April. This causes our vitamin D stores to be depleted. The effects can be seen in fatigue, frequent colds, exhaustion, and a variety of other symptoms because vitamin D is essential in many cells. Even leg cramps at night can indicate a vitamin D deficiency.

Another problem is that recommendations regarding vitamin D intake are inconsistent. The dose currently considered “adequate” is relatively low at 30 to less than 50 nmol/L (12 to less than 20 nmol/mL). However, experts recommend a target value of 50 ng/ml, which most people in our latitudes do not reach at this time of year (March).

Even if very high values ​​are usually not easy to achieve, one must keep in mind that toxic reactions can also occur at a value of around 150 ng/ml. While small doses (experts have repeatedly given me 4,000 IU per day as a dose) can be taken relatively safely according to the “watering jug principle”, it is advisable, especially for large quantities, to consult a specialist and check with a specialist laboratory. Valuable.

Of course there are many important micronutrients, and a healthy diet is also very important for your body. However, changing your diet is often much more difficult than taking a few drops of vitamin D every day, and the success I've already seen with this is remarkable. Taking vitamin D does not exclude a healthy diet. 😉

With this in mind, I wish you all the best and a beautiful spring filled with lots of strength and energy.
