Publisher's Summary

Are you, a loved one, or a friend still suffering from a health issue after you have exhausted traditional healthcare options? Do you constantly feel fatigued or feel something is wrong but can’t figure out why? Do you wake up multiple times at night or have sleep apnea or restless leg syndrome? Are you overweight and always hungry and wonder why? 

You might be surprised to learn all these problems may be the result of a deficiency of one substance that has been misunderstood since its discovery in 1939. That substance is vitamin D3.

While it is called a vitamin, D3 is really a hormone. It was first used to treat a childhood bone disease called rickets. Nearly all the research on the benefits of vitamin D3 has been done at doses that are 80 times lower than the optimal doses described in this audiobook. This groundbreaking audiobook is your opportunity to regain your health quickly, safely, and easily. In The Optimal Dose, Judson Somerville reveals how vitamin D3 saved his own life when all else failed and explains how this essential vitamin is key to finding answers to your own health questions and challenges.

Eye-Opening revelations about what vitamin D does

Wow - I thought I knew all about vitamin D3 but this adds a decidedly new level of it for me. I've been maintaining a higher vitamin D3 (D3) blood level for over 10 years. In that time, I've only had 2 minor colds - and both of those happened when I had been OFF the D3 for a few months. But ‘Winter Syndrome’, which Dr. Somerville has named this state of chronic deficiency, is much broader and deeper than just immune system support. In reflection, I think my whole family has had this - we just didn’t know it. I assumed our current D3 dosing guidelines and limits were based on rigorous clinical data. Turns out much of it has been broadly estimated - and often too low, ‘just to be safe’, which treated it on par with potentially toxic drugs. But here’s the thing: D3 has a very LOW potential for toxicity. In fact, all potential for toxicity lies in how much Vitamin D3 is in the blood (not the daily dose) and not until you reach 300 ng/ml. Most of the world’s vitamin D-deficient population would be lucky to have a level of 20ng. And it can take many months, if not years, of super high dosing to get anywhere near that 300 ng threshold. Checking your D3 level 1x or 2x a year should help you maintain whatever level you decide on. NARRATION: Clear, crisp, and consistently modulated throughout the whole book.

good book, not sure of the voice

The book is excellent, the narrator's voice a bit over the top, continuously too high pitched !

good for info

the narration sounds like a computer generated voice , not easy to listen to. I valued the information once the cringey anecdotes were out of the way. I stuck with it as I needed the information, I'll have to listen again though as it's so fast paced I missed quite a bit.

K2 not required 😀

The purchase price was more than made up when finding out I no longer need to spend upwards of £20 each month on K2. Was saddened by the author's cycling accident. That did shake me. Before reading this book, I was worried about the amount of D3 I was taking with K2. It was evidently unfounded. Thank you.
