Plus Why Cholesterol Levels Go Up During The Cold Months
So, do you really need vitamin D supplements? What is the best source for vitamin D? I have decided to post this video as a follow-up to yesterday’s post on the vitamin D dosage controversy.
Frankly, unless you have a deficiency or health condition that requires supplementing with a certain nutrient, there is no such thing as a “must have” supplement. But there is more to this.
You see, some deficiencies are more common than others. Also, for those involved in intense physical activity, some non-essential supplements become essential. Moreover, ensuring that you are getting adequate amounts of nutrients is actually a good thing. It is the reason one should take a daily multivitamin.
There are a couple more reasons for taking supplements, that I will point out below after the video.
Check out this video featuring Dr. Oz as he discusses, with Diane Sawyer, the importance of vitamin D and the best sources, plus why cholesterol levels tend to go up during the cold season:
Notice Diane Sawyer’s expression after taking the cod liver oil? Notice also the amount of sardines one needs to eat to get adequate amounts of vitamin D?
Some sources of foods and natural sources are just not palatable, which might cause you to find every reason on earth not to consume them. You may need copious amounts of certain food types to get adequate amounts of some nutrients. Two more reasons for taking supplements.
