This is an excellent book (written by a leading Endocrinologist) that shows the relationship between vitamin D deficiency and a number of health problems. Whilst covering a fairly technical subject, it is none the less easy to read and includes extensive references. There is much I learned from reading the "Power of Vitamin D" and I would recommend it.

Hard to put a star rating on a technical book--can't really say, "I laughed, I cried." LOL. But, this was an excellent book for its purpose. The author, a doctor, and avid advocate of the treatment of various ailments via vitamin/hormone therapy, did an outstanding job of explaining how important having an adequate vitamin D level is to overall health. I read the book because a family member suffers from a deficiency, but learned a great deal that will benefit me personally. As a person with chr ...more

As I grow older, I realize that all the things my parents told me to do as a child were right. As a kid and even a teen, I didn't really see the point in taking vitamins or making sure that I was getting enough in the food I was eating. I'm paying for it now. I never realized how much Vitamin D in itself did for the body. I suffer from fibromyalgia, depression and arthritis.

Dr. Zaidi book is easy to understand and I felt like I was reading something a friend wrote, not a complete stranger. I re

This is a very good presentation for the need of vitamin D in the human body and the scientific findings that justify the need to up the daily dosages in order to provide optimum health. We have been told lies and half-truths about this critical vitamin for years. Don't be surprised if your own doctor is uninformed about this latest research. You may have to do your own research and maybe even educate your doctor. You should insist on having your blood levels checked. If your doctor won't help, ...more

The book is well documented (although I didn't check any of the resources) and pretty compelling. That Vitamin D is actually a hormone was an interesting point. Many the chapters are very repetitive, based on the same symptoms and reasons for symptoms so by the end it felt fairly overdone. Also some of the writing was not quite professional which detracts from the message (don't put "Sad!" at the end of a paragraph). However I'll be looking into Vitamin D for myself.

I skimmed through the technical parts, while the author is discussing the ailments due to vitamin D deficiency. Although I read through the treatment portion in detail. I think this book is not for a layman like me but for medical professionals, though it make you conscious to the deficiency of vitamin D and one can ask his doctor while getting treatment of such symptoms.

Or you can gift this book to your doctor before getting the treatment. :)
Rafael Tellez Giron
Well written and very revealing, well researched and very accessible to read by everyone. I just wished he talked more about autism, he barely toches that subject, but for many other very common diseases he makes s very good case for Vitamin D as the origin of the problem and the posible solution.

Wear sunscreen, stay indoors 90 percent of the time, and worry about skin cancer so you can develop a myriad of other health issues. Like all things health related - it's complicated. Worthwhile reading, but of course favors Vt. D supplements.

Information every doctor and patient should know

Book talked about the benefits of Vitamin D for one's health and what type of Vitamin D to take. Very informative book.

One of the best Nutrition books I have read. I read 2 or 3 a Nutrition books a week, and this one really stands out and handles some health problems in a simple understandable way. I immediately ordered copies for some of my doctor friends, and they are excited by some of the information they are now trying in their medical practices. Thank you for this book. It is already changing some lives for the better.

This is, I think, the third book on the importance of Vitamin D in our lives that I've read recently. And I have to say this was the best written of them all. Though not as personable as the others, the design with the references at the end of each chapter, made it so much easier to get through. I could use the text-to-speech to save my eyes the strain and merely turn that feature off to page down to the next chapter without hearing long streams of numbers, dates, and names.

This was probably the

Power of Vitamin D contains in-depth medical information about the health benefits of Vitamin D, yet it is an easy read. Did you know that vitamin D is actually a hormone? It effects every cell in your body and therefore, if you are low in vitamin D (which almost everyone is) it can impact your health in many ways, which are described in detail in the book.

Dr. Zaidi brings together cutting edge medical knowledge, research and his own clinical experience in a way that makes sense to the average p

This well researched book by Dr. Zaidi reviews all the medical research on Vitamin D and health. I learned a lot reading it. Most Americans are Vitamin D deficient. You would have to spend a lot of time in the sun without sunscreen each day to manufacture enough on your own. It's hard to get enough through diet alone.

Vitamin D deficiency has major effects on our health - effecting nearly every part of our bodies. Vitamin D deficiency contributes to high blood pressure, heart problems, diabetes,

I an giving it 3.5 stars. It was an easy to read book-give credit to the Dr.'s wife for her ability to reduce complex medical information into a lay person's level of understanding.
The book is very repetitive but sometimes that is a good thing because the pertinent information is drummed into the reader.Chapter 23 is the most important one in the book in my opinion.
I was convinced of the need for the vitamin but I would have liked a bit more scientific analysis at times rather than anecdotal

Over the years, (90+) I have become interested in Vitamin D and how it helps the body. My medical doctor keeps telling me to make sure I take enough Vitamin D as it helps the body in so many ways. I am very fair and have problems with developing skin cancer, so I need to avoid the sun, where most of our Vitamin D comes from. This book was very informative on a subject that was of a high interest because of my doctor's recommendation that I take vitamin D. It answered many of my questions about w ...more

This book is so informative. If you have ever wondered whether there is a reason so many people recommend taking vitamin d for your health, this book explains it all. I was diagnosed with really low vitamin d levels last year. My doctor suspected that why I broke my ankle. He tested me for it and he was right. wow. vitamin d is so important.

Very informative and easy to read/understand-not a lot of technical medical jargon. Much of the information in the book reinforces what my own doctor has been telling me for a while -just in even more detail.

Another great primer on the importance of adequate Vitamin D. The book was authored by an MD and contains references and case studies. Pick this up from Amazon as an occassional Kindle freebie or borrow from Lendle.

See above there is more than sufficient references to make this book very credible and believable!e. I live in Nevada and drive a convertible with the top almost always down and I was low on Vitamin D

Mixed feelings about this book. A lot of really good information that I can apply to my own life. I didn't always care for the style of writing, and sometimes the repetition drove me nuts...but I also remember more than I usually do, so I guess it did its job.

The writing was a little dry and repetitive. However, I'm giving it a four because the author did convince me of his arguement, as I am now taking vitamin d supplement :)

So useful! I think this is definitely something everyone should read! I found it very readable, too. Easy to refer to, with great advice on treating vitamin D deficiency.

Vitamin D deficiency is a common condition that affects a significant number of Australians (myself included), which made this even more interesting reading.

Very timely, since Vitamin D is a crucial nutritional factor in human health.

Very informative, and easy to understand, even without a medical background. Definitely some breakthrough information here that's highly under the radar of "modern" medical doctors.

A lot of information (with references) about vitamin D and recent research into its importance, though sometimes a little too exuberant in extolling its virtues.

“It is pretty clear to me that a good level of vitamin D can help you prevent serious bacterial infections. Even if you develop a bacterial infection/sepsis, vitamin D can help you recover from it. Unfortunately, when you are in the hospital, no one pays attention to your vitamin D needs. Often, you end up not taking any vitamin D during your hospital stay, the time when you need it the most. How ironic!” 0 likes
