Misconceptions About Vitamin D | The Mommy Illuminati

I wanted to share a great article by Cora Rivard, a Naturopathic Doctor (N.D.) at Seasons Natural Healthcare, LLC, in Derry, NH. This great article about Vitamin D goes over some of the need-to-know information concerning this vital nutrient.

The main points Dr. Rivard covers in detail are:

  1. vitamin D deficiency can cause many issues besides problems with bone density, muscle, and development. Inappropriate dosing during pregnancy or for the breastfeeding infant can be particularly damaging.
  2. Vitamin D levels are not assessed often enough as part of a diagnostic tool.
  3. The values from test results are often misinterpreted because the range is too wide; it does not reflect optimal levels for healthy individuals
  4. Many people don’t take enough, or take too much vitamin D.
  5. Many people supplement it at the wrong time!
