Dangers of too much Vitamin D with Dr. Deva Boone
Between the latest online fads and the crazy media headlines, it’s easier more than ever to get confused about your health. If you want to make better decisions about your health so you can feel better and live longer, you’ve come to the right place.
There are so many questions about Vitamin D today especially in the media regarding its relevance to general health, thyroid health and how it is related to COVID. There are a lot of arguments as to how Vitamin D can be beneficial to humans, and the recent one is its contribution to fight COVID-19. I stumbled across one of Dr. Deva Boone’s articles about people easily getting hypercalcemia or high calcium levels even from mild excesses of Vitamin D. I recommended before to avoid higher levels of Vitamin D as it is less useful and makes you less productive but it turns out it can also be quite dangerous.
Joining us is Dr. Deva Boone to understand more of how Vitamin D works in our body and what are the best practices to think about for our general welfare.
