The Vitamin D Pandemic

In America the NHANES estimates that over 95% of US adults (over 18) do not consume the recommended amount of Vitamin D from their diets. IT should surprise us then, that over 50% of the population is deficient.

We know this information but from what we can tell, its not getting any better and there doesn’t seem to be any force driving forward the importance. Another important factor, at least in Canada is that Universal testing for Vitamin was cut way back in 2010. Want to get your blood test for Vitamin D? Good luck: you’ll have to pay out of pocket, wait for an appointment, get your blood drawn, wait again for results and then have someone interpret them for you. Talk about old and cryptic. What about a way to test yourself easily, from home using any smart device with an internet connection?

The important of Vitamin D cannot be understated at this point and now we need to know if we have enough or if we are on the verge of deficiency, and with that – potential health implications now and down the road.

We have a test that we are giving away 100% free to all Canadians to improve our baseline “unhealthy” population and give back all at once. This is a tool every Canadian should have access to – THEIR OWN HEALTH INFORMATION in an easy-to-understand format when they want it.

The downfalls of blood testing are related to the skewing of results based on:

  • Age
  • Disease state
  • Stress
  • Inflammation
  • Kidney Function

Specific to Vitamin D blood tests only measure 25-OH-D3, which is a biologically inactive form of vitamin D. This form of Vitamin D must then pass to the kidneys to be converted to its usable form which is 1-25-2(OH)-D3.

We test using deficiency symptoms which would avoid all the pitfalls of blood testing and all the time waiting. Results can be calculated in less than 5 minutes, and this gives you a wonderfully accurate depiction of your nutritional status.

Since not all symptoms are related to nutrition, we devised a system that can be both accurate and reliable. In this way a) the more symptoms you have related to Vitamin D deficiency the more likely it is related to Vitamin D and b) the more severe the symptoms are the more likely that there is a genuine need for Vitamin D.
