GrassrootsHealth works to solve worldwide vitamin D deficiencies and improve health globally


Most Viewed Articles

(NaturalNews) Vitamin D is one of the most basic and easily obtained nutrients in existence, yet millions of people today are grossly deficient in it. But GrassrootsHealth.net, a public health promotion organization working to increase awareness and education about the importance of vitamin D, is changing the game with a plethora of helpful resources and instruction that you and your family can use to achieve optimal health.

In order to live well, a person needs to maintain between 40 and 60 nanograms per milliliter (ng/ml) of vitamin D, according to several prominent sources. This is considered the "optimal" range at which a majority of chronic diseases can be prevented or avoided. But many people fall far short of this, due in large part to misguided government recommendations that might be effective at stopping a pandemic of rickets but won't protect against diseases like multiple sclerosis and cancer.

It's a shame, really, as simply spending a little bit more time in natural sunlight without sunscreen, or supplementing with inexpensive vitamin D3 tablets, could help significantly improve the health of millions of people without the need for expensive medical interventions. Take a look at this simple chart that shows how disease risk drops dramatically in many different categories as vitamin D levels are increased naturally:

This is just one of the many helpful resources offered by GrassrootsHealth. Another is this series of charts that explains what is required to achieve optimal vitamin D levels based on your current levels:

Join the D*Action campaign and help end vitamin D deficiency globally

In order to know where you fall on the vitamin D range, it's important to get tested as a baseline. You can do this through your preferred doctor, or you can order a simple vitamin D test kit like this one offered by GrassrootsHealth:

Once you know your baseline levels, you can easily determine the appropriate amount of vitamin D you need to supplement daily in order to achieve and maintain levels in the optimal range. Using the GrassrootsHealth charts referenced above, you can then start supplementing with vitamin D3 as needed, or safely use a tanning bed or expose your skin to natural sunlight, depending on the season.

"GrassrootsHealth has launched a worldwide public health campaign to solve the vitamin D deficiency epidemic in a year through a focus on testing and education with all individuals spreading the word," explains the site, which is supported by a consortium of scientists, institutions and individuals across the globe that are committed to ending vitamin D deficiency.

"Everyone is invited to join in this campaign! Join D*action and test two times per year during a 5 year program to demonstrate the public health impact of this nutrient."

Every system of the human body benefits from optimal vitamin D levels

By taking advantage of what GrassrootsHealth has to offer, you'll gain access to the latest news and information about vitamin D, including how it's being used in the prevention and treatment of chronic illness. You'll also hear from the best of the best in science, medicine, and public health advocacy as to the progress being made in ending vitamin D deficiency.

"Vitamin D is used by nearly every cell in the body and has an effect on every system," explains the Pure North S'Energy Foundation's Allan Markin. "Since it acts as a protector and regulator, it enhances the functioning of our body's systems to protect against disease. Simply put, optimizing vitamin D levels results in better health."
