Prevent Cancer with Vitamin D – Dr Oz
TIm Ferriss recommended taking Vitamin D as a way to increase testosterone levels in the male body…helping with your ‘manliness’..for guys.
Actually, it’s much more important, for both males and females.
It’s also a very powerful antioxidant that prevents cancers by helping cancer cells commit hari kiri.
Dr Oz has a very good video (below) where he explains how this works,
Here’s the short version:
- Lots of studies show Vitamin D is a key anti-cancer vitamin
- Helps cancer cells self destruct
- Half of people in the US (and the world?) are Vitamin D deficient
- Supplementation is the most efficient way to obtain Vitamin D apart from sun exposure
- 1,000 IU per day is a good place to start
Another thing, it’s really affordable!
A bottle of 5000 IU Vitamin D with 120 capsules is about $7. Following Tim’s recommendation of 2000-5000iu, twice a day, that’s just $7 for 2 months!

Vitamin D is extremely important. However, you can’t continue a lifestyle of eating white flour and sugar and exposing yourself to toxins in food air and water and expect Vitamin D to prevent illness. Vitamin A, C and E are very crucial and need to be taken in proportion to each other and Vitamin D3
Agreed…and therein lies a lesson:
There's no such thing as a magic bullet. Everything plays a role, food, exercise and supplementation.
Also, vitamins' effectiveness increases exponentially when they work together, like a hospital with very good specialists.
In this case, Vitamin D would most likely be the cancer specialist.
Really, what this video is doing is not saying that Vitamin D is a miracle worker, but to highlight the importance of Vitamin D in it's anti-cancer role by making sure such cells self-destruct.
That said, if you look at the supplement facts on most Multi-vits, there's not a lot of Vit-D inside, so do take note.
