Vitamin D for Health

Among possible anti-cancer and other beneficial health properties, vitamin D might reduce the risk of heart disease.
I'm rarely sick anymore, and I think the Vitamin D contributes to my health. I’m a natural skeptic of most supplements, but Vitamin D3 is one that has me convinced of its value. Give it a try perhaps and see if it helps you!
Vitamin D won’t get drug company attention because no one can patent it and charge billions, but research has emerged in recent years showing a wide variety of benefits for Vitamin D, and it’s especially important for those in the winter at northern latitudes, or even most of the United States, with deficiency commonplace and under-rated by outdated guidelines.
The medical community at large has been slow to take this up, do your own research here, you might like what you find. The Vitamin D Council is one credible resource.
Vitamin D3 in a spray
I use a Vitamin D spray offered by Dr. Joe Prendergast, which allegedly is most easily absorbed (I won't argue with that based on my own experience).

Vitamin D3 tablets
I’ve also used the capsules from Bio Tech Pharmaceuticals, but those can make me feel slightly nauseated if I take more than 10,000 IU.
