Vitamin D: How Much Food Would You Have to Eat?
Vitamin D may be one of the most important vitamins, but can you get enough from food alone?
In this podcast, we’re going to talk about how much food you would have to eat to get your vitamin D requirements.
In my opinion, vitamin D is one of the most important fat-soluble vitamins out there. Vitamin D is beneficial for bone health, calcium absorption, the immune system, and to help lower inflammation.
But, there are many things that can deplete your vitamin D that go beyond not getting enough vitamin D from your food or from the sun.
A few causes of a vitamin D deficiency:
• Microbes that block the vitamin D receptor
• Lowered sun exposure
• Darker skin has less conversion on the skin of vitamin D from the sun
• Poor health
• Insulin resistance
The RDAs for vitamin D are 400-800 IUs, which is 10-20 micrograms. I believe those numbers are way too low. I think, at a minimum, you need 5,000 IUs per day. But, if you have health issues, you may need a lot more.
