Vitamin D News Letter from VDC
This weeks news letter...Sunlight during pregnancy.....Can those with dark skins get enough vitamin D naturally?........Deficiency of vitamin D increases the risk of aneurysm.....vitamin D and hepatitis.....and a webinar on cystic fibrosis.
Also remember that if you take vitamin D it decreases your level of magnesium. Not a good thing as low magnesium and heart problems go together. I recommend you take magnesium malate as it is absorbed better than magnesium oxide which is primarily a laxative.
