Vitamin Secret STOPS Multiple Sclerosis?!

Dear Living Well Daily Reader,

For years it was a riddle that baffled scientists…

When they looked at who was developing multiple sclerosis (MS), geography seemed to play a major role.

The farther north you live, the higher your risk of developing this heartbreaking disease.

Now, researchers think they’ve finally figured out why.

It all comes back to a simple, life-saving vitamin.

And getting enough of it could give you a fighting chance at stopping MS before it ever develops.

What is different about living in the South or the North? Not just here… but all over the world?

Well, there are a lot of things… but one of the biggest is the amount of sunshine you are exposed to on a daily basis.

Why should sunshine matter?

Because as sunshine hits your skin, your body produces vitamin D. And vitamin D deficiency (scientists now think), along with genetic predisposition, may be the biggest reason why some people get MS.

Scientists had thought vitamin D may be the culprit for a long time, but a recent study by the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health discovered that measuring vitamin D could be your key to determining your risk for MS.

The study looked at the vitamin D levels of 800,000 women in Finland and followed them for nine years.

After nine years, about 60 percent of women who were diagnosed with MS had low vitamin D (below 30 nmol/L).

That translates into 43 percent higher risk of developing MS if you don’t have enough vitamin D.

There are plenty of other good reasons to make sure you are getting enough vitamin D, including bone health, brain health, mood support, immune system support, and it may help you to lose weight.

Let me tell you how to make sure you are getting enough vitamin D.

Dr. Scott’s Guide to Vitamin D

  • Start at your doctor’s office and have them run a blood test for you. This will give you a good idea of your levels. Make sure you pay attention to what time of year it is. Most people’s vitamin D levels are lowest after a long winter.
  • Get enough sun. There is a fine balance between getting enough sun and getting too much. I’m not a big believer in the thought that you only need 15 minutes of sun exposure a day – most of us need much more.
  • Supplement. Not all of your vitamins need to come from a pill, but vitamin D is one that you definitely should take, especially in winter.

Health and Happiness,

Scott Olson
