Is Vitamin D all they say it is?

Aug 6, 2014

Nelson, a poz friend told me he read somewhere that all poz people should take vitamin D. Is that true? Why?

Response from Mr. Vergel

Great question. I tend to strongly agree with that statement. I take 4000 IU of Vitamin D3 per day to achieve a blood level of 45 ng/mL of25-hydroxy vitamin D.

In health,
