Some people need more. Check bloodwork 25 oh d to know your level.. 50-60 is a good number and below 40 is on the low side. ...Read more

The healthiest oils are those that contain essential fatty acids (EFA's), which are some of the Omega 3 & 6 fatty acids; the best choices are hemp, flax & fish oil but these are not good to cook with. The best choice for cooking is coconut oil, though it does not have EFA's. See http://bit.ly/SkIDdw & http://bit.ly/U1D44Y ...Read more
