It turns out that ‘Vitamin’ D is not a vitamin. It was originally thought to be a vitamin because it was found in food. But it is, in fact, a steroid hormone that affects almost all the cells in the body, by instructing the genes what to do. It’s absolutely essential for weight loss, as well as health and strong bones, joints and muscles.
From reading through the studies at PubMed, Bowles saw that Vitamin D deficiency is involved with obesity, as well as at least 65 diseases including, but not limited to, acne, alcoholism, allergies, arthritis, asthma, autism, cancer, chronic wounds, Crohn’s disease, depression, diabetes, glaucoma, gout, heart disease, learning disabilities, lupus, migraines, multiple sclerosis (MS), plantar warts, PMS, pregnancy problems, pre-term births, psoriasis, strokes, toenail fungus and tuberculosis.
Bowles tells whereby in the 1920s it was found that Vitamin D2 could be made easily by shining ultraviolet light onto organic matter (food). Dozens of foods became fortified with D2. One scientist said that the average person was taking 20 mg of Vitamin D2 a day. The hospitals started emptying, and were getting ready to go bankrupt. So, the unit of measurement of Vitamin D2 was changed from milligrams (mg) to International Units (IU), which is what we use today. Suddenly 20 mg became 800,000 IU. That’s nearly 1 million IU, which sounds a lot scarier. Relatively recently doctors “recommended dosage” of Vitamin D3 was a pitiful 400 IU a day.
Now it’s around 2,000 IU a day. In fact, this should be higher. Adults need at least 5,000 IU a day to stay healthy and possibly more. How high is probably not known yet. For example, 5,000 IU may sound like a lot, but in fact it’s only the amount of Vitamin D your body would make if you lay in the sun in a bathing trunks or a bikini for just 15 minutes.
