The ideal vitamin D blood level is 45–60 ng/mL. To reach those levels, follow these guidelines.

Infants and children 12 and younger: 400–1,000 IU daily

Teens age 13–18: 1,000 IU daily

Adults in good health: 2,000–5,000 IU daily

Adults with health problems: 2,000–10,000 IU daily. Obese adults or those on certain medications, such as ketoconazole (an antifungal), may require two to three times more.

Remember: It’s a good idea to talk to your health care provider before starting a new supplement.

High-quality supplements offered by the natural foods industry changed my life.   I am very sensitive to artificial ingredients, GMO’s, fillers, and low-quality ingredients (did you know if you are sensitive to something, it can create inflammation in the body – a big No-No!).

When I developed chronic fatigue, I turned to the natural foods industry to seek answers.   I began working in the supplements department of a natural foods store, and taking high-quality supplements (I’ve tried hundreds of them to find which ones work for me), and by learning how to eat well, I improved my energy levels and well-being significantly.

I cannot take prescription drugs, so for me, having access to high-quality supplements was a game-changer.

I take them every day, and they make a BIG difference in the quality of my life and well-being.  I discuss supplements in great detail in my book, The Memory of Health.
