The author describes how Vitamin D is
helpful in modulating mood swings, weight
loss, sleep, the immune system, the brain,
heart and physical strength. Sun and calcium
help to potentiate the overall effects of
Vitamin D.

Salmon, tuna, cod and shiitake mushrooms are
good sources of Vitamin D with salmon being
the highest. Vitamin D is helpful for
arthritis, diabetes, upper respiratory
infections and weight control. Sunlight
has a stimulative effect on management
of Vitamin D by the body. The Vit. D
is considered more hormonal than vitamin
content per se. The author explains how
Vitamin D has a hormonal influence on
metabolic pathways. The vitamin targets
6% of the entire human genome. Receptors
are everywhere in the body.

The acquisition would be perfect for any
library. The cost is reasonable for the
high value of the information contained.

Thanks for the review of this book. I know first hand what a huge difference vitamin D can make for health, check out my review of Carlson Vitamin D 2000 IU to read about what it did for my family. :)

The world's leading expert on vitamin D reveals the missing link to achieving optimal health

Vitamin D deficiency is the most common medical condition in the world. In America alone, over 200 million people lack sufficient levels of vitamin D and may consequently suffer from chronic health conditions, ranging from daily annoyances like fatigue and pain to life-threatening illnesses such as diabetes, heart disease, and cancer. But few people know why vitamin D is so important and what they can do to avoid the myriad ailments associated with deficiency, including heart disease, cancer, and osteoporosis.

There is no better person to demystify this vitamin and showcase its place in human health than author Michael F. Holick, M.D., Ph.D.-the father of modern vitamin D research. With more than three decades spent studying the relationship between vitamin D, limited sun exposure, and human well-being, Dr. Holick shares his findings on how combining the natural curative properties of the sun along with small lifestyle changes can help everyone to live a substantially healthier life.

Armed with a three-step plan incorporating safe amounts of sun exposure, the right supplementation, and eating foods rich in vitamin D, Dr. Holick provides prescriptive advice for anyone- from relatively healthy people to those suffering from chronic or even fatal diseases- on how to easily rebuild and maintain optimal levels of this essential hormone.
