Doctors Making a CRAZY Vitamin Mistake
If you want bad advice on health, ask the mainstream medical community.
After year of studies, they’ve finally woken up to the fact that we all need vitamin D.
That’s the good part.
The bad part?
The advice most doctors (and medical associations) give you is almost worthless.
And following it could be a major mistake that can leave you with serious health problems down the road.
You may have noticed that your doctor has added vitamin D to your blood test.
(If your doctor doesn’t do this, insist on it during your next visit).
Your doctor has come around because research shows that vitamin D is important for:
- Bone Health
- Muscle Strength
- Skin Health
- Blood Sugar Control
- Heart Health
- Brain Health
- Immune Health
And, much more…
But even though they are testing for vitamin D, the advice they give on how to get enough is laughable.
A simple search of the Internet will show you what I mean: recommendations abound for getting out in the sun for 15 minutes a day – that is enough to get the vitamin D you need.
If that is all you need, then why are more than 40 percent of us low in vitamin D?
It’s even worse if you are Hispanic (70 percent don’t have enough vitamin D) or black (82 percent don’t have enough vitamin D).
The problem with the 15-minute suggestion is that most of us spend too much time inside, cover our bodies with clothes, wear sunscreen, have darker skin, are not outside during the right time (10 AM -3 PM), or are getting older.
All of those factors impact how much vitamin D you are getting.
I believe that the only way to get enough vitamin D is to supplement – unless you work outside every day. And even then, you should supplement during the winter.
I’ve been telling people to supplement with vitamin D for over 25 years and I’m happy (at least) that doctors now know it is important.
But vitamin D is not the only vitamin that you should be concerned about. Vitamin K is just as important as vitamin D – and no one is testing for it or suggesting that you get more.
Vitamin K is important for:
- Helping Blood Clot Properly
- Preventing Heart Disease
- Blood Sugar Control
- Keeping Arteries Flexible
- Maintaining a Sharp Brain
Vitamin K works with vitamin D to support good health, BUT it is very hard to get in our diets.
Vitamin K shows up in green leafy vegetables and is easily destroyed by cooking.
Chances are you are not getting enough.
The best way to get both vitamin K and vitamin D is to supplement with them both. You can find these supplements just about anywhere, or sometimes together in multi-ingredient formulations.
Health and Happiness,

PS: If you are on the older style of blood clotting medicine (coumadin, warfarin) then you need to work with your doctor to adjust your dose when taking vitamin K.
