Adequate Fat-Soluble Vitamins (A, D, and K) Intake Is A Challenge Today


Here’s a sidebar entitled “The Challenge” from the Winter 2013 issue of the journal of The Weston A. Price Foundation’s journal, Wise Traditions (39):


Weston Price found that indigenous people consumed over 12,000 IU of fat-soluble vitamin A and over 1500 MG calcium in their diets on a daily basis.  In our experience these are amongst the most difficult elements to get enough of in an industrial diet, as well as in a non-industrial whole foods diet.

Some groups of people he studied ate little or no meat, but large quantities of raw or fermented milk and cream; others ate beans and grain and small amounts of animal products, including insects and dried shrimp and fish.

But no matter what the particulars of the diet, all had high levels of the fat-soluble vitamins A, D and K, as well as calcium.  Obtaining these from either the industrial diet or a small garden is the challenge of the modern age.

Food for thought…
