The world’s vitamin D experts agree that people should seek to achieve a Vitamin D serum concentration of 100 nmol/L– 175 nmol/L (40 ng/ml – 70 ng/ml) to enjoy all of the health benefits of vitamin D.
A disservice to the health of Canadians, Health Canada says people should seek a vitamin D serum concentration level of 50nmol/L (20 ng/ml) and a daily-recommended intake of 400-800 IU of vitamin D to achieve this level is enough.
With a significant number of Canadians deficient in vitamin D it is clear 400-800 IU each day is not enough.
Join a growing group of Canadians urging Health Canada to make the required changes to the daily-recommended allowance of vitamin D.

In order to have the best possible policies for the maintenance of optimal health and prevention of disease, the recommended daily allowance for vitamin D needs to be re-evaluated by the IOM and Health Canada.
“I’ve never been a vitamin taker but a friend of mine had been on the program for a year, and she said ‘You should try it.’ So I did. I really do feel it’s helped with my health. They are a very kind organization. They take time to listen to your concerns.”Carol Mowbray, Alberta
