Milk is Not Enough
How about a little sun?
When it comes to Vitamin D which is truly a hormone, and hormones have thousands of important functions, make sure you know your numbers. A deficiency of Vitamin D causes your other hormones to be out of balance, including the ones that control your blood glucose (insulin), your sex hormones, even thyroid and parathyroid hormones. Healthy adults can take a 400 IU supplement of vitamin D daily — more if they get little or no sun exposure, or if your doctor prescribes a higher amount after testing your levels. 10 to 15 minutes in the sun (without sunscreen) can provide you with 10,000+ IU’s of Vitamin D; a cup of milk gives you 90 IU’s.
