Here’s an interesting link to a new study done with kids that shows they are likely subject to the same problems as adults who are low in vitamin D3.
The researchers measured vitamin D levels in obese and normal-weight children and discovered obesity occurs with decreased vitamin D and increased insulin resistance.
This is just one study, but it’s one of the first done on kids vs. adults, and it’s no surprise that it showed that low vitamin D3 is associated with yet another health problem.
That’s why one of our most important recommendations in the upcoming book is to get adequate vitamin D3 during pregnancy (1000 IU for every 25 pounds of body weight). Your body will thank you, and so will your kids.
