Script text

  • ANNOUNCER: Have you ever wondered why we are seeing dramatic increases in health problems since our great-grandparents' time?
  • A hundred years ago, people mainly lived and worked outdoors.
  • Many were farmers.
  • Clothes were hung outside to dry.
  • Children played outdoors.
  • Almost everyone spent most of their day outdoors.
  • They rode horses.
  • But now things have changed.
  • Most of us work and play indoors, where we have air conditioning.
  • We work more on computers than on farms.
  • We wash and dry our clothes indoors.
  • We watch TV and surf the Internet and play video games.
  • We ride in air-conditioned autos and airplanes and trucks.
  • We even swim indoors.
  • So, what does all this indoor activity mean?
  • Less sun!
  • Could less sun be associated with more disease?
  • Let's find out.
  • From sunlight, our skin makes a vital substance, Vitamin D.
  • Vitamin D, which is actually a hormone rather than a vitamin, has a major impact on our bodies.
  • It increases activation in more than 2000 genes.
  • This increased gene activation allows the body to combat disease.
  • In fact, over 5000 scientific studies have shown the clear association of Vitamin D deficiency
       with more than 100 diseases and health problems, most of which have seen dramatic increases over the past 50 years.
  • These include some of the big ones: cancer, diabetes, osteoporosis, Alzheimer’s, multiple sclerosis, obesity, and heart disease.
  • Even rickets, which supposedly had gone away 80 years ago, has reappeared.
  • Are YOU at risk for these diseases?
  • Do YOU get enough Vitamin D?
  • Probably not.
  • More than 9 out of 10 people worldwide don't get enough Vitamin D.
  • Ask yourself: Do you spend a lot of time indoors?
  • Do you wear sunscreen or protective clothing when you do go outdoors?
  • Many people think that 10 minutes outdoors is enough to get all the Vitamin D they need from the sun.
  • But the fact is, for most people, that unless you spend a fair amount of time outdoors every day in full sun with minimal clothing
       and no sunscreen, you aren't getting enough Vitamin D to protect against disease.
  • You need to stay in the sun for 3 hours if you are standing up in a short sleeve shirt, 20 minutes if lying down in a bathing suit.
  • Even food no longer provides as much Vitamin D as it did 100 years ago.
  • For example, in 1900, pie crust was made with lard from pigs raised outdoors.
  • Back then, just one piece of a double-crust pie provided 2000 iu of Vitamin D.
  • Today, pie crust is made from vegetable oil or shortening.
  • How much Vitamin D?
  • Zero.
  • The good news is, you don't need sunlight or lard from pigs raised outdoors in order to get your Vitamin D.
  • A simple supplement can provide all you need to prevent or even treat serious disease.
  • But how do you find out if you have enough Vitamin D?
  • You can, of course, have a blood test.
  • A reading of at least 40 nanograms per milliliter, or 100 nanomoles per liter, is optimal.
  • Or, you can do a quick, easy test on yourself.
  • You can stop this video and do it right now.
  • Just press hard on each of your shin bones and then on your sternum - the bone in your chest between your lowest ribs.
  • Did at least two of them hurt?
  • Sore bones are an indication that you are probably very deficient.
  • So, let's say you are deficient - this is very likely if you have a major disease, or are elderly, have had recent surgery or illness,
        or you are pregnant; a breastfed infant would also be at risk.
  • How much Vitamin D should you take?
  • This, of course, would depend on your individual situation, but many studies indicate that 4000 iu daily is necessary to bring the average adult up to
        40 nanograms and maintain this healthy level.
  • If you know you are at risk for being deficient, you might want to start with a larger dose.
  • You may also want to take more than 4000 iu of Vitamin D daily if you are elderly, obese, or plan soon to get pregnant or have surgery.
  • You should start feeling noticeably healthier and more energetic within a few days to weeks.
  • Are people starting to notice the benefits of Vitamin D?
  • You bet!
  • When one doctor raised all of his patients’ levels to 80 nanograms, or 200 nanomoles,
       he noticed that no matter their age or health condition, their average of 4 office visits per year dropped down to one visit.
  • More and more people are getting Vitamin D tests, a 10 times increase in just 3 years.
  • And research on Vitamin D has accelerated - more research has now been done on Vitamin D than on Vitamins A, C, E, and K combined.
  • So, if you want to feel better and get or stay healthy, taking a Vitamin D supplement is probably the single best thing you can do for your body.
  • And it won't cost you a trip to Hawaii.
  • Do yourself a favor.
  • Read the studies if you need more proof.
  • Then try it.
