Elite Athletes Try a New Training Tactic: More Vitamin D

Elite Athletes Try a New Training Tactic: More Vitamin D | Nutrient Reference Values | Scoop.it

Pro and college teams, including the Steelers, Red Wings and USC, think the nutrient may help players avoid injury, among other benefits.

Kat Carroll's insight:

I sat next to the producer of "In the Huddle" or some NFL show on my last international flight. He let me know that the diets of elite athletes basically sucks....Sad. We treat our racehorses better. 

 

First of all, this is news to them perhaps but not to those of us in the know. And we know that recommended amount is ludicrous. Personally I take 25,000IU D3 with K2 (get that last part!!) every other day. I live in the PacNW. And I tan....

 

So take this with ....not a grain of salt, but some K2 which tells the calcium where to load: not in arteries, soft tissue or joints but in bone. And blood-spot test quarterly  through vitamindcouncil.org- reaching optimal levels (50-80 ng/ml) and not the pathetic ones medicine or internet advice dishes out.
