There is a big debate on Vitamin D. Where do you sit in the argument? Do you think you can get enough vitamin D from the sun? This is Judy Gaman and this is your Stay Young Medical Minute. Most people think spending time in the sun is a sufficient way to increase your vitamin D levels. They are right, but only for people who live in Hawaii where the right type of rays are available year-round. For the rest of us, the answer is no, not quite. The estimates range form 50-90 percent of Americans have a vitamin D deficiency with almost 95% of seniors being deficient. Vitamin D wards off cancer as well as diabetes and heart disease. Even the chance of you getting the flu is higher if your Vitamin D is low. I suggest that you supplement with at least 1000 mg of Vitamin D3 per day. A simple fix to a big problem.
