Sorry to hear that..
by: Kerri Knox, RN- The Immune Queen!

Hi Pam,

I'm sorry to hear that the vitamin d is making you feel fatigued, but vitamin d is not 'supposed' to do anything except relieve your vitamin d deficiency.

In some people whose fatigue is CAUSED by vitamin d deficiency, then it can give them more energy. But not everyone's fatigue is caused by vitamin d deficiency and also expecting to take one single supplement to relieve your fatigue without addressing diet and exercise and probably multiple other vitamin deficiencies is unrealistic.

Also, your vitamin d level is VERY VERY low and it's very possible to feel worse before you get better because there will be a lot of changes taking place while your level is coming back up. Also, if you are JUST taking the vitamin d without any other nutrients, you are asking for trouble. Vitamins are not drugs and when they work, they 'use up' other nutrients that are 'cofactors' in helping them to work properly. In the case of vitamin D, it requires magnesium, vitamin K and vitamin A to work properly.

And magnesium requires B vitamins and specifically B6 to work properly. So if you are deficient in any of these, then you ARE going to feel worse because you are making your other deficiencies even worse and creating imbalances. This is why I NEVER EVER recommend that anyone take vitamin d, or any other nutrient, all by itself.

If you are deficient in one nutrient, the chances of you being deficient in a bunch of other nutrients is VERY high- and magnesium deficiency is so common as to be called an 'epidemic' by researchers who study it.

So, I highly suggest that you get on a HIGH QUALITY (NOT a drug store) brand multivitamin such as Beyond Any Multiple that will provide you with all the vitamin d 'cofactors' needed to transform vitamin d into its active form in the blood as well as helping to correct your other deficiencies.

Taking a daily multi is SO important that both my husband and I take a multivitamin 'pack' twice a day just to maintain our excellent health, even though we eat PERFECT and eat no:

Processed foods
Pasteurized or homogenized dairy
Non-organic foods

or any other 'non-foods' that would deplete us of nutrients.
