It’s Fall – time to think about vitamin D
October 17, 2010
Well, it’s always a good time to think about vitamin D, but since we’re heading into November fast, its now that those great vitamin D levels of the summer (that is, if you actually got out into the sun this summer) start waning. Vitamin D is used in a myriad of mechanisms throughout the body. Since you’re been paying attention to this blog, you know how important it is.
The ‘new’ things in this post aren’t all that different than what you’ve been hearing me harp on for months now, but I did come across a few things I hadn’t seen:
- University of California San Diego and Grassroots health have teamed up again to present an updated set of video seminars on the latest vitamin D research:
University of California-San Diego TV – Vitamin D
Here are a few teasers:
Vitamin D: Nutrient, Not A DrugVitamin D: Role in Preventing Cancer
Vitamin D: Pregnancy and Lactation – Preventing Complications, Growing Healthy Babies
- Our favorite ‘just outside the mainstream’ doctor – Joseph Mercola – has a great Vitamin D resource center on his website. He keep it all fresh and is always on the lookout for the new evidence:

Keep that 25 (OH) Vitamin D level above 40ng/ml. You can thank me later.
