Do you know your Vitamin D level? Vitamin D plays an essential role in the human body but is most known for its role in the immune system. Unlike other vitamins, we get only about 10% of the Vitamin D we need from diet and the rest needs to be made by the body. Between genetic SNPs, lack of sun exposure, obesity and inflammation it is no wonder over 40% of the American population is deficient in this nutrient. Tune in to hear Ali and Becki discuss functions of Vitamin D from immune health to hormone balance to metabolic health and beyond. 

 

In this episode, Ali and Becki unpack the robust function of vitamin D as well as its role in the pandemic. Learn about ideal reference ranges for Vitamin D (deficiency is considered 20 ng/mL and below in mainstream medicine), how over 700 research studies provide data supporting the use of Vitamin D for DIVOC, and considerations of supplementation and sun exposure. We round things out with some discussion of the variants (dun, dun, dun…), changes to PCR testing and the case for natural immunity.
