We are excited for you and what you are helping to accomplish! Your continued support and contributions are moving nutrient research into practice – here’s one of our favorite examples of how.
On Tuesday, we launched our donation campaign to raise the funds we need to continue moving research about vitamin D into practice, so the world may claim the JOY of health through all that vitamin D has to offer. Help us keep the momentum going to get this information into the mainstream, to the governments and policy makers, especially for reducing the risk of COVID-19 disease, severity, and mortality – every single person deserves the benefits that vitamin D repletion has to offer for their health, especially during this pandemic. Please donate $25 today!
THANK YOU to Those Who have Already Donated!
A heart-felt “Thank You” from all of us at GrassrootsHealth for your donations! We love that we are able to use our time, effort and energy towards making such a great difference for our world today, tomorrow, and for future generations.
And, THANK YOU to Those Who Have Participated in Our Projects
With each kit purchase, each set of results, and each questionnaire completed, you are contributing valuable information to our research from which we have published 11 papers, created many charts and graphs, and developed one of the best tools available for taking D*action for your own health – the Vitamin D*calculator – which is one of the top search terms that helps individuals find us and our information about vitamin D!
Without YOUR data, time, and continued participation, none of this would have been possible. With more data, we are looking forward to creating an updated version of the Vitamin D*calculator, which will have additional features and input variables, such as co-nutrient intake, to help give an even more personalized calculation of how much vitamin D each individual may need to achieve and maintain their target level.
Help make this and more a reality by participating or donating $25 today!
Have a Very Wonderful Thanksgiving Day!

Don’t Allow a Vitamin D Deficiency to Bring Your Health Down!
Correcting a vitamin D deficiency prior to getting sick may decrease disease severity and improve outcomes! Test your vitamin D level today, learn what steps to take to improve your level, and take action to achieve and maintain a vitamin D level of 40-60 ng/ml (100-150 nmol/L).
Using the GrassrootsHealth Custom Kit Builder, you can create a test kit that measures your status of vitamin D and other important nutrients (such as omega-3s, zinc and magnesium), as well as your CRP level to measure inflammation. Click here to build and order your test kit today – measure your status and take the steps necessary to improve them if needed; make an impact on your health today and for your future! When you know what your levels are, you can determine next steps to take and how much supplementation may be needed if you are not at your target levels.
Enroll now with the Full Immune Boost Panel (which includes tests for vitamin D, Omega-3 Index, magnesium, zinc, selenium, copper, and hsCRP), and get 10% off when you use coupon code BoostTen at checkout.
What Does it Take YOU to Get Your D to 40 ng/ml (100 nmol/L)?
Did you know your health could be greatly affected by making sure you have a vitamin D level of at least 40 ng/ml (100 nmol/L)? Help us help you.
STEP 1 - Do you know what your vitamin D level is? If not, be sure to test today to find out.
STEP 2 – Determine your target level. Are you at your target level? Experts recommend a level of at least 40-60 ng/ml (100-150 nmol/L).
STEP 3 – Need to boost your level? Use the D*calculator to see how much vitamin D it may take to reach your target. Opt for the Loading Dose for a quicker boost.
STEP 4 – Optimize how your body absorbs and utilizes vitamin D with co-nutrients and these simple steps.
STEP 5 – Re-Test! This is an important step to make sure you have reached your target level, and to ensure you are not taking too much! Re-testing after 3-4 months is recommended.
STEP 6 – Adjust, Repeat…
Give your immune system the nutrients it needs to support a healthy you and protect yourself from unnecessary diseases, especially COVID-19.
The first Randomized Controlled Trial on vitamin D and COVID-19 has shown a 96% lower risk of ICU admission for those receiving vitamin D (as 25(OH)D to quickly boost vitamin D blood levels) along with the standard treatment, compared to those receiving standard treatment alone.
These results support many previous observational studies showing a relationship between vitamin D levels and intake and COVID-19 severity.
GrassrootsHealth Nutrient Research Institute has launched the new Immune Boost project with the use of our myData-myAnswers nutrient health system that nearly 15,000 people are already using for their health. Specific markers that influence immune health are suggested for testing as part of this project including:
- Vitamin D
- Omega-3 Index
- Essential elements magnesium, selenium, and zinc
Our goal is to demonstrate how one can use the Nutrient Research Model established by Dr. Robert Heaney to show the effect of vitamin D serum levels of at least 40 ng/ml (100 nmol/L) on risk reduction for all ethnicities in the population. Status and intake of other nutrients will also be analyzed for any type of relationship to immune status and symptom severity. Join the project today!
Please let us know if you're interested in helping sponsor this project.
Through GrassrootsHealth Nutrient Research Institute, you can also test your essential elements magnesium, copper, zinc and selenium, toxins such as lead, mercury and cadmium, as well as your omega-3 levels, inflammation levels and thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) level. Find out your levels today! Log on to the test selection page (click the link below) to get your tests and see for yourself if your levels can be improved.
Make sure you track your results before and after, about every 6 months!
How can I track my nutrient intake and levels over time?
To help you track your supplement use and nutrient levels, GrassrootsHealth has created the Personal Health Nutrient Decision System called
For each specific supplement, you can track what days you take it, how much, and many other details. This will help you know your true supplemental intake and what patterns of use work for you to reach and maintain optimum nutrient levels. Check it out today!
