Vitamin D for menstrual cramps

The best form of cancer-fighting vitamin D comes from 20 minutes of full body sun a day. Being an oil-soluble vitamin, your body stores it up to 6 months. Did you know that vitamin D also knocks down debilitating menstrual cramps? A study published in the Archives of Internal Medicine found that a single mega-dose of vitamin D3 was incredibly effective at relieving menstrual cramping and pain. This vitamin D3 therapy works by hampering prostaglandins which cause heavy menstrual cramps. The one-time dosage they used was 300,000 IUs. The IoM suggest 600-800 IUs a day for maintaining good health. But this won’t catch you up if you are sick or already behind in vitamin D. Always take the D3 cholecalciferol and never take the D2 ergocalciferol. Diet sources of vitamin D are fatty fish and fish liver oils, mushrooms, eggs and raw milk.
