doctor-questionsIf you go to the doctor complaining of a backache or joint pain, you may end up with a prescription for a dangerous painkilling drug — or your doctor may recommend surgery.

If you have risk factors for heart disease, you’ll be told to take a statin drug for the rest of your life, and the side effects of doing so will most certainly be downplayed.

Weak bones? Not to worry — there’s a pharmaceutical “solution.”

Memory problems? Big Pharma has a pill for that, too.

But what if I told you that these issues, along with many other common “age-related” health problems, are merely symptoms of a common vitamin deficiency? And that this deficiency can be corrected quickly, easily and inexpensively — making many of your health problems disappear and vastly improving your well being.

The deficiency I’m talking about is vitamin D — and before you stop reading because you’re sure that you are getting enough D, please consider this: a whopping 75% of adults in the United States have low vitamin D levels.[1]

Who’s to Blame for the Vitamin D Deficiency Epidemic?

It is widely known that too few doctors monitor vitamin D levels. Sadly, diagnosing nutritional deficiencies is almost a non-existent part of their training. However, it would be easy to point the finger at your doctor for failing to make sure that your vitamin D levels are at optimal levels.

In reality, the situation is more complicated than that. Vitamin D deficiency has reached epidemic proportions for one simple reason: people don’t get enough sun exposure. The human body only produces vitamin D in response to ultraviolet rays. While our bodies are designed to spend most of our time outdoors, the majority of us now spend our days confined inside. To make matters worse, public health officials have been waging war on the sun for decades, urging people not to go out in the sun without first slathering themselves in sunscreen lotions.

The fact is, moderate sun exposure is actually good for you, and using sunscreens not only blocks 100% of vitamin D production, but most brands contain toxic chemicals that do more harm than good.

Are YOU Vitamin D Deficient? Most Likely YES!

Vitamin D deficiency may be symptomless in its early stages, but as it progresses it causes many health problems that may be misdiagnosed as symptoms of age-related diseases. Pain, cognitive problems, mood fluctuations, fragile bones and a weak immune system are just a few common symptoms of vitamin D deficiency.[2,3,4] Sadly, many people are given a cocktail of pharmaceutical drugs to “treat” a simple nutritional deficiency, or just told to accept these health issues as part of aging. What a shame.

What’s more troubling is that studies have shown that low vitamin D levels lead to an increased risk for serious health conditions that often result in premature death.[5,6,7] The fact is, more and more scientific studies are showing that if you have any nagging concerns that your doctor seemingly can’t resolve, increasing your body’s vitamin D levels may just be the natural remedy you’ve been searching for.

Signs of Vitamin D Deficiency

  • aches and pains
  • low energy
  • cognitive problems
  • mood fluctuations
  • heart problems
  • vision loss
  • fragile bones
  • weak immunity

Vitamin D Deficiency Fuels the “Sick Care” Industry

The “sick care” industry, which is dominated by the big pharmaceutical companies, depends on widespread nutritional deficiencies in order to create repeat business. Vitamin D deficiency figures prominently in this equation: It leads to joint and muscle pain, weak immunity, bone loss, weight gain, cognitive decline, mood fluctuations and heart problems. It’s no coincidence that these health concerns are some of the biggest profit earners for drug companies.

In other words, Big Pharma’s profits depend heavily on widespread vitamin D deficiency. That’s why medical schools (which are subsidized by pharmaceutical companies) almost never teach new doctors about the health-protective properties of vitamin D. It’s simply bad business to admit that a simple, inexpensive nutrient could keep people out of doctor’s offices and off dangerous drugs.

But YOU don’t have to fall victim to a profit-driven system fueled by greed and arrogance. By taking action now to optimize your vitamin D levels, you can avoid contributing to the health care crisis — and save yourself a lot of trouble down the road.

How to Protect Yourself with Vitamin D

There are only two ways to get vitamin D in the amounts you need for optimal health: several hours per day of direct sun exposure and vitamin D supplementation. So for most people, a vitamin D supplement is a must. You may eventually want to get your vitamin D levels tested by your doctor, but you shouldn’t wait to start increasing your levels. Vitamin D is one of the least toxic substances known on Earth, making it nearly impossible to overdo it, and it doesn’t interact with any medications. The bottom line is that you’re better safe than sorry.

WARNING: Don’t Take Fake Vitamin D!

In the rare times that doctors are paying attention to your vitamin D levels and recommend you take a supplement, they often reach for their prescription pad and advise you to take vitamin D2, which is the synthetic form of vitamin D.

Why? Because the pharmaceutical companies cannot patent natural compounds, so in order to make money, they had to create a synthetic version — even though it’s been proven to be poorly absorbed and less effective than the real thing. The better option is to take vitamin D3 (also known as cholecalciferol), which is what is used in most dietary supplements. It’s more absorbable, more accessible and provides the greatest benefits, as proven by hundreds of scientific studies.[8]

How Much Vitamin D Do You Need?

Most people take way too little vitamin D per day, because the current Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA) is set at only 600 IU. The majority of experts now agree that this is woefully inadequate. Sadly, the government has stubbornly refused to increase the RDA, putting millions at risk unnecessarily. The reason behind this is unknown, but many people think that the strong influence of the food and pharmaceutical industry lobbies plays a role.

According to Dr. John Cannell, Director of the non-profit Vitamin D Council, healthy adults should supplement with 5,000 IU of vitamin D3 daily to avoid deficiency and achieve superior health — more than 8 times what the government says is sufficient. Remember, vitamin D has zero toxicity so there’s no harm in taking higher amounts.

How to Choose the Right Vitamin D Supplement

I hope I’ve made the case as to why it’s critical to take supplemental vitamin D3. However, many people make the mistake of just taking whatever is on the shelf of their local drugstore. You need to know what to look for to avoid getting ripped off and to ensure that you’re providing your body with the vitamin D it needs to keep your levels optimal.

Here are four tips to ensure that you’re getting the best vitamin D possible:

The D3 form: Make sure you’re taking a supplement made with 100% natural D3 (known as cholecalciferol) which has been proven to be the safest, most absorbable and most effective form of vitamin D. Avoid at all costs the synthetic D2 form (known as ergocalciferol), which is found in fortified dairy products, prescription vitamin D and inferior supplements.

An optimal 5,000 IU dose: The US RDA of 600 IU is pathetically low. Leading experts are now saying that adults need 5,000 IU of vitamin D daily for optimal health. I recommend a supplement that provides this dosage in one small, easy-to-swallow pill, to make it easy and convenient to take.

A safflower oil base: Typically, vitamin D supplements are made with a low quality soy oil base, and there is no guarantee that this oil is free of toxins or genetically modified organisms. Instead, look for a supplement that is made with a base of pure safflower oil, which is much safer and, as an added bonus, provides antioxidants that help to preserve freshness.

A fair price: Vitamin D3 supplements should never cost more than $15 for a one-month supply — even for a high dose 5,000 IU supplement. Some companies hype up their “quality” and charge more than double this. Don’t fall for it.

The Vitamin D Supplement I Personally Recommend

In researching the other vitamin D supplements on the market, I was appalled by how many low quality products are out there. Few contain the ideal dosage and form, and many are made with potentially toxic filler ingredients. The few high quality supplements I found were absurdly expensive.

That’s when I set out to create my own vitamin D supplement. In addition to my work with the Live in the Now newsletter, I own a company called Stop Aging Now, which has been making premium grade dietary supplements for over 15 years. Working with my Scientific Advisory Board, I created an advanced vitamin D supplement called D-Pure™. If you’re looking for an extremely pure, high quality supplement that provides the right form and the proper dose to achieve optimal vitamin D levels and peak health, this is the product I recommend.

My goal in creating D-Pure was to offer a vitamin D supplement of superior quality at an amazingly affordable price, so that no one has to suffer the consequences of vitamin D deficiency. I take it daily without fail and so do my wife, my elderly parents and many of my friends.

I encourage you to shop around and do your own research to make sure I’m not shamelessly promoting my own product, but I’m confident there’s simply no better way than with D-Pure to ensure that your vitamin D levels are where they need to be.

Why D-Pure Is the Best Way to Get Vitamin D

Potency: D-Pure is formulated with an optimal 5,000 IU dose of vitamin D3 (as cholecalciferol), the most natural and absorbable form. According to experts, this is the perfect daily dose and can quickly correct a deficiency.

Purity: D-Pure contains only 100% pure D3 in a clean base of non-GMO safflower oil, so you don’t need to worry about ingesting unnecessary filler ingredients or toxic contaminants.

Convenience: D-Pure provides your entire daily dosage of 5,000 IU of vitamin D3 in a tiny, easy-to-swallow softgel, which helps to ensure that you’ll never miss a day of taking it.
