You wouldn’t eat a year’s worth of meals in one day (although I’ve seen people try), so don’t attempt to load up on all your vitamins in a single sitting, either.
This nuts-o concept is at the heart of a new study out of Australia, where researchers gave a group of senior women massive doses of vitamin D… but only once a year.
Turns out it doesn’t help.
No kidding! I could have saved them the time and trouble — but they didn’t ask me. Instead, these researchers gave 2,256 women 70 years old or older either a single 500,000 IU dose of D in one day, or a placebo.
That’s it — nice seeing you, stop by again in a year.
After tracking these women for between three and five years, the researchers found that those who got the megadoses of D actually had a slightly higher risk of falls and fractures, according to the study in the Journal of the American Medical Association.
And that means… absolutely nothing. You sure can’t blame anything on the vitamin D — because these women hardly had any! Outside of that one day a year when they received that megadose, these old gals were every bit as deficient as you are right now.
And yes — unless you’ve been taking my advice, you ARE deficient. Some of you are so badly lacking in D that you might actually need a megadose yourself — talk to a doctor who knows how to handle his nutrients to find out if this approach is right for you.
But whatever you do, don’t stop there — because daily D should be part of everyone’s routine. You’ll need a quality vitamin D3 supplement, and a good pair of earplugs.
Then, skip the sunscreen and head outside, because the best source of D is natural sunlight. And if anyone tries feeding you the same old lies about sun exposure and cancer, just put in those earplugs.
