EP 78 - The Vitamin D Disgrace & the Great Cholesterol Myth with Dr. Jonny Bowden

As humans, we’re inundated with choices in our everyday lives, but I can say without any reservation, our overall health is our most valuable currency. The question is, what are we buying into? In our quest to ‘armor up’ our immunity, we may well be completely missing the mark if we don’t pay attention to these two things – Vitamin D and Cholesterol. One of my absolute favorite nutrition and functional medicine straight-shooters, Jonny Bowden, shares his invaluable insights to kick off National Nutrition Month and offers a great IMMUNITY REPORT – just for our listeners – to help set the record straight with specific products and information Jonny himself recommends. This is an episode that can save your life, so please tune in and share it with everyone you love.
