Someone out there is feeling ANXIOUS about your health.
But not in the way you think.
They’re not worried about protecting it. Just the opposite. They’re terrified you’ll find a way to do that yourself – and then, you won’t need their meds anymore.
And THAT, my friend, can explain some of the headlines you’ve seen recently.
Specifically, the ones about vitamin D.
The sunshine vitamin is essential to your health. Yet it’s coming under constant attack like it’s some kind of poison.
One new study making headlines around the world even claims that it won’t do ANYTHING to help protect older patients against heart attack, stroke, and other cardiovascular problems.
But don’t toss your D in the trash just yet, my friend.
As you’ll see in a moment that what’s behind those headlines is a whole lot of empty hype.
It’s smoke and mirrors – designed to get you to toss what works, so you have to continue to depend on them and their meds.
Well, not anymore!
“Don’t ask” study conceals the truth about vitamin D
The new study is a meta-analysis. That means it is a huge review of data from multiple other studies all pulled together.
When done right, a meta-analysis can be really useful. But a meta-analysis done wrong can be downright WORTHLESS. And I’ll give you one guess which category this one falls into.
See, the problem is, the researchers didn’t establish ANY degree of consistency from study to study. And that means the numbers were all over the place.
For example, want to know what the vitamin D levels in the patients at the START of the studies were?
Ok, so how about what their D levels were by the END?
What doses of vitamin D were they given?
How long did the studies run?
Missing mineral could be behind skewed results
Turns out there’s a LOT they don’t want you to ask because the answers would reveal just how BAD this study actually is.
So allow me. ALL of those numbers were ALL over the place.
In fact, according to WebMD, the numbers from study to study “varied greatly,” making any accurate comparisons – and any real conclusions – downright impossible.
That alone is a fatal problem.
But there’s an even bigger issue. The studies left out something else – something even more important, and that’s magnesium.
See, without magnesium, your body can’t put vitamin D to work. And given that some 80 percent of American seniors are believed to be low in the mineral you’d think they would sort that out.
But they didn’t. In fact, the researchers didn’t bother measure magnesium levels at all.
So here’s the real deal on D. Odds are good that you ARE low.
And low vitamin D has been linked to…
… and even an early DEATH.
So skip the headlines, dig a little deeper, and go ahead and get your vitamin D. Just make sure you top off your magnesium while you’re at it, too.
