Dr. Fauci’s response to a researcher about his daily Vitamin D supplementation, September 15, 2020

This will be the shortest article I’ve ever written.

Dr. Anthony Fauci wears a mask. So should you.

Dr. Fauci got a vaccine. So should you.

Dr. Fauci socially distances and washes his hands. So should you.

Dr. Fauci exercises regularly. So should you.

Dr. Fauci said that Vitamin D has “an impact on your susceptibility to infection” and, personally, takes 6,000 IU of Vitamin D every day (see photo above).

So should you.

  • Note: Here is Fauci’s full quote on Jennifer Garner’s Instagram Live on Sept. 10. : “If you are deficient in vitamin D, that does have an impact on your susceptibility to infection. So I would not mind recommending, and I do it myself, taking vitamin D supplements.”
  • How do you know if you are “deficient” in Vitamin D? First of all, you can assume you are: 96% of African Americans are either deficient or clinically insufficient in Vitamin D. 81% of Hispanics and 55% of European Americans are as well.
  • Or, you can test your own Vitamin D levels, from home! https://daction.grassrootshealth.net/product/vitamin-d-home-test-kit/
  • How much to take? While the “official” recommendation is 600 IU for people up to 70 and 800 IU for those over 70, most MDs and researchers suggest levels near or even more than Dr. Fauci’s 6,000 IU. In fact, over 200 MDs, Professors and Researchers recommend between 4,000 and 10,000 IU for optimum health.
  • Why is Vitamin D so important? It’s super simple. Vitamin D has been a part of the evolution of invertebrates and vertebrates for literally millions of years and has become a critical, indispensable part of the ancient “Innate Immune System”, the first line of defense against ALL pathogens for human beings.
