It’s free medicine. Has ZERO side effects. And it LITERALLY falls from the sky.
It sounds crazy when I put it that way. But I assure you it’s 100 percent true.
Because the vitamin D your body makes from sunshine can often be every bit as powerful as meds for some of the nation’s deadliest chronic conditions.
And new research reveals how it could even help you beat one of today’s top killers.
According to researchers, vitamin D can help stop prediabetes in its tracks, preventing it from ever turning into a full-blown case of type 2.
For some folks who have been recently diagnosed, the potent vitamin could even help REVERSE diabetes itself.
Which is why Big Pharma would prefer we KEEP thinking the idea of harvesting “free medicine from the sky” IS crazy.
Because it’s a DIRECT threat to some of today’s best-selling drugs. And, of course, to their bottom line.
The surprising secret to dodging diabetes
When you’re on the cusp of diabetes… or you’ve just been recently diagnosed… get ready. You’ll be spending more time in pharmacies than you ever have in your entire life.
Your doc will prescribe drug after drug in hopes of either stopping the disease from taking hold or getting it under control fast, while it’s still in its earliest stages.
And he’ll tell you that this is it. Get used to it. The meds you’ve started taking will be with you for the rest of your life.
But the new study points to ANOTHER way. And it’s one that starts with the old sunshine vitamin.
Beta-cell friendly vitamin boosts insulin sensitivity
Close to 100 folks who were either at high risk of diabetes or newly diagnosed with the disease, were given D supplements or a placebo.
Over six months, the volunteers who got the D had significant improvements in insulin in muscle tissue.
The vitamin also improved insulin sensitivity and boosted the function of insulin, creating cells in the pancreas. Known as beta cells, they usually begin to fail in folks with diabetes.
In other words, if you act fast, it could be shockingly simple to turn diabetes around.
How much vitamin D will do the job?
But there IS one part of the study that’s a REAL HOOT.
They claimed they used “high” doses of D. Like, “don’t try this at home” levels of the stuff. They even said it’s 10 TIMES the recommended limit.
Why’s that so funny? There IS no recommended limit because the mainstream doesn’t recommend that you take D supplements at all!
Clearly, this is just another case of supplement fear-mongering at work.
The “high” dose of D in the study was just 5,000 IU per day, or about what your body can make from as little as 15 minutes of sun exposure (depending on skin type, season, cloud cover, etc.).
Maybe you should speak to a doctor before stepping outside to fetch the mail. Wouldn’t want to overdose on D standing in your own driveway!
Obviously, it’s a perfectly safe amount of D (and a dose many people actually need). And it’s a good idea to spend a good 15 to 20 minutes a day in the sunshine with some skin exposed when you can.
In winter, when you can’t get outside, or during bad stretches of weather, a supplement is probably a good idea too. A naturopathic doctor can test your D levels for you and help you decide what’s right for you.
But since D alone probably won’t completely reverse diabetes, be sure to combine it with other natural therapies such as a low-carb diet as well as chromium supplements.
And if you’re STILL stuck in prediabetes, look into curcumin. In one study, this natural compound, made from the spice turmeric, helped stop prediabetes from turning into diabetes in EVERY PATIENT who tried it.
