The Huge Vitamin D Mistake with RDAs
New To Keto But Want To Grow Your Knowledge?
More specifically, you want help with The Huge Vitamin D Mistake with RDAs?
alright guys so I wanted to do this
video because you may have seen this in the news where they’re bashing vitamin D
now they’re saying you shouldn’t take too much it’s too toxic and so vitamin D
now is considered dangerous if you’re taking more than 600 international units
so I want to talk about where this is coming from
not necessarily to educate you but to educate your friends and family that
come up to you and say oh I saw this report or I saw this on the internet
that vitamin D now is toxic and you shouldn’t be taking that so I just want
to talk about where that came from so there was a very very large study
done over many years from the National Academy of Medicine formally called the
Institute of Medicine and so at the end of this compliation of all the research
they made a big error okay in fact it was a very large error by a factor of
10x so instead of the RDAs being 600 IU’s it should have been eight thousand
eight hundred and ninety-five now an RDA is a nutrient intake considered to be
sufficient to meet their requirements of ninety seven point five percent of
healthy people to prevent a deficiency when you talk about RDAs there’s nothing
to do with unhealthy people and the much greater demand that they need we’re
talking about the majority of healthy people and what they would need to
prevent a major deficiency so they had two panels to evaluate this the first
panel agreed with the air and said yes it was an error and it was off by 10x
okay but then the second panel said the airs identified would not affect the
final recommendation so it remained unchanged this was in 2017 so basically
there’s data out there that is still recommending this 600 IUs which is
crazy because we have an actual legitimate vitamin D pandemic right now
with the majority of the population being very deficient in vitamin D and
that’s creating a lot of problems with the immune system with bone health with
inflammation with increasing risk of autoimmune diseases so when you see
things like this read who they’re sourcing the information from where is
it coming from is it outdated then you can actually see
the actual source of where it’s coming from and if it’s legitimate or not and I
know that it’s just really hard to fathom that the news could be not a
hundred percent accurate a hundred percent of the time and that’s my
sarcasm for the day but vitamin D is incredibly vital not just to consume
from your foods which is almost impossible to get from the foods but
from the Sun but not only that so many people have absorption problems not
having a gallbladder not having a bile to absorb that fats I love vitamin they
may have a damaged liver which also limits the amount of bile production
they might have malabsorption because their gut is inflamed maybe they have a
genetic variation called polymorphism where your genes are affecting the
receptors for vitamin D and you don’t absorb them that well or maybe you have
this chronic infection where the virus is downgrading the vitamin D or maybe
you have a weight problem in your obese where you would need three times the
amount of vitamin D as someone that was not overweight or let’s say you have
more melanin in your skin is darker you’re gonna need more vitamin D from
that like three times more or let’s say your skin is aged and you’re over 60 or
70 you’re not gonna absorb the vitamin D like you were when you’re 20 or if
you’re using suntan lotion that’s gonna block by the vitamin D right there the next
time you see a study like that just be suspect and realize there’s just not a
lot of money and promoting and using natural remedies if you want more
information about vitamin D I put some videos up right here check them out

In this video, I want to talk about vitamin D and RDAs. You may have seen that the news is now bashing vitamin D. They are saying that you shouldn’t take too much because it’s toxic—it’s now considered dangerous when taking more than 600 IUs. Where is this coming from?
There was recently a study published by the national academy of medicine (NAM). After many years of compiling research, they happened to make a big error—by a factor of ten. Instead of recommending 600 IUs, they should have been recommending 8895 IUs.
RDAs are the recommended daily allowances of nutrients that are considered to be sufficient for over 97.5% of healthy people to prevent a deficiency. Keep in mind that RDAs do not consider unhealthy people.
Today, the data is still wrong and unchanged, which means many people are getting a false recommendation of 600 IUs/day.
This recommendation is crazy—we are facing a massive vitamin D deficiency pandemic right now. Most people are deficient in vitamin D, resulting in problems with…
• Immune system health
• Bone health
• Increased risk of autoimmune diseases
and much more.
When you see information like this, make sure you search out who is providing this information. It’s important to check for errors, quality, and conflicts of interest.
The best source of vitamin D is not a particular food—it’s the sunlight. Sunlight stimulates the body’s natural ability to create vitamin D.
Many things can affect how much vitamin D you should consume:
• Excessive weight or obesity
• Skin color/melanin
• Health conditions
