You likely wonder if you have to take vitamin D3, I was one of them myself. In 2012, I went to a conference in Montreal and asked the doctor why I took calcium every day, and my ionized calcium level was still low?

The doctor says: You probably don’t have enough Vitamin D3. Oh! Really! What you need to do is to have your vitamin D3 level tested in your blood. I did not know we could be tested on vitamin D3.

Since my ionized calcium was low, my family doctor decided to test my vitamin D level so we would know where to stand. I went back to see her, and she told me my level was lower, so even though I was taking more calcium, my body could not utilize it because the vitamin D was low.

She ( my family doctor ) made me take 1000 I.U./ day and return in 3 months to be tested again. After 3 months, my level was up to standard.

In the meantime, I went to the conference and told Dr.Brouse my story, and he encouraged me to take 5000 I.U. a day for a month, and I could decrease it if I wanted after. Ever since I have taken 4000 I.U a day all year long.

As we all know, in North America, especially here in Canada, we don’t go outside too much in the winter, so it is essential to have enough Vitamin D3 in our bloodstream to ensure it is appropriately used in our body with calcium and other minerals.

Even with a proper diet, we still need a supplement in vitamin D3. Nowadays, people put on sunscreen, so your vitamin D3 is not absorbed by the skin; that is why it is crucial to add a supplement of vitamin D3.

According to Doctor Brouse, Vitamin D has co-factors that the body needs to utilize vitamin D properly.
They are:    – magnesium  ( the most important )

                    – zinc

                    – vitamin K2

                    – boron

                    – a tiny amount of vitamin A

The study is fascinating to look at. In one of the articles from Dr.Brouse on – Autistic Children – they may benefit from an adequate amount of vitamin D3.

In addition,  vitamin D3 is good for bone health and improves the immune system, heart, bowel, and brain function. You can research yourself, find out about your vitamin D3 level, and talk to your doctor to make an informed decision for your health and your family.

Please, I would love to hear from you,

To your health!
