vitamin D

  1. Simple vitamin SLASHES colon cancer risk 22%

    I’ve seen the look on my patients’ faces when I tell them they have colon cancer 

    They feel panic… they wonder what they’re going to tell their families… and they wonder if they’re going to die.  

    If you’ve never gone through the horror of being diagnosed with colon cancer, I want to keep it that way.  

    I don’t want you to have to explain anything to your family.  

    I don’t want you to wait for your doctor to give you an expiration date.  

    You CAN get ahead of it and slash your risk of colon cancer.  

    All you need is a vitamin that costs just pennies a day.  

    I’m talking about vitamin D.  

    But first I need you to forget everything… and I mean EVERYTHING… that the mainstream has told us about it.  

    You see, for years the National Academy of Medicine has claimed that you only need 600 IU of vitamin D each day or 800 IU if you’re over 70. 

    And lots of mainstream doctors have adopted that recommendation.  

    The only problem? It’s nonsense.  

    A new study from the National Cancer Institute, American Cancer Society, Harvard, and 20 other medical organizations revealed that these vitamin D recommendations are WAY too low.  

    The researchers found people with vitamin D levels between 75 ng/mol and 100 ng/mol can slash their risk of colon cancer by 22%.  

    But to do that, you should take about 4,000 IU of vitamin D3 every day.  

    That’s at least 5 TIMES what the mainstream has been recommending.  

    So you can bet most folks aren’t getting nearly enough.  

    Of course, it’s possible to get vitamin D from the sun and oily fish like salmon and sardines; but it’s much easier to adjust your D3 levels with a high-quality supplement.  

    And vitamin D3 is one of the least expensive supplements around.  

    In fact, it will only cost you a few cents each day to boost your health – and keep yourself safe from colon cancer.  

  2. Reports of vitamin D dangers are bogus

    Shedding some light on the truth about vitamin D

    Imagine a single nutrient that could protect your bones... slash your risk of cancer... beef up your immune system... eliminate depression... AND reduce your chances of dying from just about ANYTHING.

    If I told you that such a "miracle" nutrient existed, you'd probably call me crazy.

    But let me assure you that my sanity is still intact -- because it turns out that there IS such a hero nutrient.

    I'm talking about vitamin D, a.k.a. the "sunshine" vitamin.

    Over the past 15 years, a boatload of research on vitamin D's ability to prevent disease has managed to move the needle on the mainstream's view of this vital vitamin.

    More docs than ever are now testing their patients for vitamin D deficiency and recommending life-saving supplements when needed.

    But according to the latest research, an alarming backlash is in the works.

    A new study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association has concluded that too many Americans are taking "excessively high doses" of vitamin D, linked to an increased risk of "dangerous side effects" -- including fractures, kidney stones, and cancer.

    That makes me shake my head in disbelief, because those conclusions are NUTTIER than a five-pound fruitcake!

    First off, this wasn't a controlled experiment that measured the risks and benefits of various doses of vitamin D. Instead, the results were pulled from survey data of nearly 40,000 adults who self-reported how much vitamin D they took.

    That means the study relied on those folks to remember their dosages accurately.

    I don't know about you, but some days I can't remember what I had for breakfast that morning!

    Even assuming everyone reported his or her intake correctly, the study had another central flaw: It assumed that the maximum amount of vitamin D that someone can take in without suffering side effects is 4,000 IUs per day.

    That's simply hogwash.

    Research has shown time and again that vitamin D isn't toxic even at dosages of up to 10,000 IUs per day!

    Let me put that another way: When your skin is exposed to the sun (without sunscreen), your body can convert those UV rays into about 1,000 IUs of vitamin D in 10 minutes or less. So, if 4,000 IUs per day were really toxic, then you'd shrivel up like a raisin after just 40 minutes of outdoor fun!

    What's more, the study also managed to miss out on the REAL culprit behind these so-called "dangerous" effects of vitamin D, like kidney stones.

    It's true that vitamin D causes the body to absorb calcium, so too much D can lead to calcium deposits building up in soft tissues, like your heart and kidneys. But that ONLY happens if you're deficient in vitamin K2!

    So, instead of ditching your vitamin D supplement, talk to your doc to make sure you're taking the right dosages of vitamin D, calcium, magnesium, and vitamin K2 for your body.

    And put these bogus results on the "sunshine" vitamin where the sun don't shine.
