Vitamin D*action has achieved a major milestone: ‘Moving Research into PRACTICE’ is now a reality! States, Governments Acknowledge the Need for Vitamin D to Build the Immune System
This holiday season is unlike any other. As we move into the New Year, we wish you moments of peace, connections with family and friends even if they can’t be there in person, the warmth of memories from holidays past, and wonderful glimpses of the light that 2021 will surely bring.
This is YOUR year. You have taken charge of your health by expanding your knowledge
about vitamin D (with our help with the science), by testing, reporting and learning about how it influences your health. You are truly spreading the word throughout the world, and I congratulate you!
Today, we are announcing a NEW GIFTING SERVICE that allows you to quickly send ‘Gift Cards’ to friends, family and coworkers who you consider might need immediate access to testing, and to Claim the Joy of Your Health TODAY.
The GrassrootsHealth’s team and scientists have contributed tremendous efforts in making sure we create the informative resources our Vitamin D community enjoys. I am delighted to be personally involved in making sure that the word of health and Vitamin D is widely spread.
I want to take this opportunity to share yet one more accomplishment. With your participation, our work has now led to over 100 scientists, doctors, & leading authorities to take action and demand Vitamin D be included in public health efforts to combat COVID-19 health outcomes. Evidence so far suggests that 50 ng/ml (125 nmol/L) of vitamin D helps reduce infections, hospitalizations, ICU admissions, and deaths. It sets a clear sense of urgency to continue gathering more data on the health benefits of vitamin D. Over 180 research papers were written, comprehensively reviewed and endorsed by scientists around the world, including the US, Canada, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Australia, New Zealand and more than 10 international organizations.
During this difficult year, I recognize that there is still a steep road ahead. Both you and I are aware that the information regarding the benefits of vitamin D are not only missing from public health forums but that, in many instances, the information can be either wrong, or misleading. This has led to some negative information. I am greatly encouraged by the growing knowledge of how the research has to be done to show correct research results to avoid this confusing information.
You have heard me before: The time to do a massive outreach push to share what you know with all is NOW! This is the kind of information we need to make sure everyone in the world understands and takes advantage of. We have the research. We have the data. We have the scientific community support. You have us to help you!
From the GrassrootsHealth team, we’d like to share with you a peaceful and healthy holiday season.
Donate $25 today to help support this outreach effort (and, let us know if your employer could match the donations made by individuals from now until January 1, 2021!).
How Can You Use this Information for YOUR Health?
Having and maintaining healthy vitamin D and other nutrient levels can help improve your health now and for your future. Measuring is the only way to make sure you are getting enough!
STEP 1 Order your at-home blood spot test kit to measure vitamin D and other nutrients of concern to you, such as omega-3s, magnesium, essential and toxic elements (zinc, copper, selenium, lead, cadmium, mercury); include hsCRP as a marker of inflammation or HbA1c for blood sugar health
STEP 2 Answer the online questionnaire as part of the GrassrootsHealth study
STEP 3 Using our educational materials and tools (such as our dose calculators), assess your results to determine if you are in your desired target range or if actions should be taken to get there
STEP 4 After 3-6 months of implementing your changes, re-test to see if you have achieved your target level(s)
