So you can get too much of a good thing, it seems.

New research from the University of Copenhagen shows that vitamin D, which has been shown to help with mood and getting calcium to our bones and more, in too-high levels is linked to higher mortality.

While more needs to be examined in terms of the causes of the higher risk, best to play it safe and use a Goldilocks strategy (get it? “this level of D is juuuust right!”) when it comes to this vitamin. This is Osteoporosis Canada’s recommendation — talk to your doctor about what they recommend for you (I got tested two years ago and my D levels were low, remember?).
