http://homefirst.com/ Seventy seven percent (77%) of U.S. teens and adults are deficient in vitamin D (less than 30ng/mL), ten years earlier, fifty-five percent (55%) were deficient, in the so-called "sunshine vitamin" whose deficits are increasingly blamed for everything from cancer and heart disease to diabetes. Recent scientific studies have found that the level of Vitamin D in most people, while adequate to protect against rickets, is not high enough to lower the probability of other medical conditions that may be caused by insufficient amounts of Vitamin D.
At the same time that doctors are discrediting the value of vitamins, minerals and supplements, more and more scientific studies are coming out about their medical and therapeutic values. No vitamin has had more scientific studies recently published than the rediscovered Sunshine Vitamin - Vitamin D.
Scientific Studies and Statements on Vitamin D
I'm annoyed that vitamin d gives me gas and bloating. I only took it for 18 days between 1600 iu to 3000 iu. I love the way it makes me feel so I will not give it up. I'll probably do 800 iu daily instead. I'm amazed people can take 4000, 5000, 50,000 iu without gastrointestinal problems...
Please help I’m allergic to vitamin D and never took any because a very bad reaction when I just turn my 20 I’m 64 years old and I hurt too much my depression I want to die every day almost can get out the bed I’m all so allergic to all oils & fats .. Please I need help I’m in my bottom.. bottom so scared
All well said about Vitamin D. But no mention of the fact that without enough Magnesium Vitamin D remains un-metabolized. In fact Magnesium is essential for Vitamin D metabolism. How many MDs know this fact?
Vitamin D3 and Selenium , along with an omega 3 supplement are 3 things, in addition to a multivitamin, are 4 things every hypothyroid patient should try taking if they feel awful in spite of having the correct TSH test results and taking their thyroid replacement hormone as directed. Most Americans are horribly deficient in omega 3 and vitamin d3. Dry hair, dry skin, calloused feet, skin diseases, eruptions, premature appearance of aging, increased aches and pains, fatigue, no energy, malaise all these will improve on these supplements. Our food supplies nutritional value has decreased steadily over the last 6 decades for many reasons, we get much less sunlight each day/ over course of each month and then we artificially block out most of the sun's rays that we could be absorbing each day (via hats, sunscreens, umbrellas for shade, etc.) ( even foundation/ makeup commonly has sunscreen with spf of 15 in already included in it) , so we are changing die to many environmental factors and we need to drink more water, eat less sugary , carby foods and take these supplements.
+doru l Anyone making statements that produce false conclusions such as yours (where you say "A =B" , without any proof of the truth of the B part of your statement, while they also KNOW for a fact that their statement is a lie , well I think that person is an idiot. A very bored idiot who, IF they have anything valuable/useful/intelligent/helpful to say, they should just say IT, instead of looking for someone to be shitty to for no reason because they enjoy verbal tussling with strangers.
Dr. E/ I have another question, and it is based on this global-dimming program, Operation Solar Shield, put forth last Spring, by David Keith, PhD, Harvard...
My situation; I do not drive, any longer (though I do sometimes ride a scooter), and I walk, at least 5 times a week. I have not had a,"tan", in years, though I do swim (outdoors) in the Summer and walk, again, all year (I live in Texas, where this is possible.)
My level of vit-d is about as low as it can get. Have you noticed that these spraying programs, particularly over the past year (the sun is hardly visible over Austin, any more, and it is due to the massive grid of clouds of nano-particulates up in the skies. I have researched this well or would never come out to say it is so.)
Question: what, aside from supplements, can one even do about all of this, any longer? As I said in other comment; big=med doesn't seem to care about any of this, at least in my case.. Yet, my doctors care (when I can see them, after having insurance cut to nothing.)
What would your suggestion be to combat all of this? Is it lack of D that is creating the most wretched cramps; legs/body (trunk), in my case?
I think you are one-hundred percent correct on our food supply. They have modified our foods to death.., our death, and it is a slow and painful process.
Btw; my doc only tested my vit-d levels after my thyroid was removed. GO figure.
I had my levels tested at my doc's recommendation. It was: 3
He put me on 10k ng x2//day.
It went up to 9. I was happy, he was not/
He kept me on vit-d and tested my blood. It was closer to 20. But, my insurance company decided to not pay for the test any more. (It is quite expensive.)
Then they cut my insurance so not even office visits are covered.
All I know is this: I cannot sleep through the night without horrific cramps in my legs, back, etc.. this is every night.
Big Med is being less than helpful and more than dangerous, I think.
Okay, this is all becoming too confusing. Logic would tell me that the best way to get ANY supplementation is through as natural a means as possible. But since our soils are now extremely deplete of vital minerals from poor farming practices, we are therefore forced to supplement them. However, vitamin D’s best source, the sun, is still available. I realize that too many people either live in northern climes or work indoors and can’t get enough vitamin D from the sun alone.
That said, I have been recently watching YouTube videos that are saying that taking too much supplemental D and calcium, is driving magnesium levels and potassium levels waaay down! This then leads to other health problems (like the ones I have been experiencing), such as arrhythmia, tachycardia, etc. Magnesium and potassium are important for the electrical functions of the heart.....calcium and supplemental vitamin D in excess, are adding to the heart issues.
Oh, and let’s not forget that vitamin D competes with vitamin A being utilized. Since I have started a ketogenic diet at the first of the year, my eczema/psoriasis rash on my hands is 95% gone already! Good fats are REQUIRED to assimilate vitamin A. What do you have to say about all of that?!
LISTEN TO ME!!!!:
I TOOK TWO FISTFULL OF VITAMIN D LAST NIGHT AND BARLEY FELT ANYTHING AS IVE DONE MANY TIMES BEFORE - AND IM THE FURTHEST THING FROM
I'VE LONG SINCE STOPPED LISTENING TO THOSE LIARS AND DAMNED LIARS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
All is great about D, but if you have too much, like myself, you develop hypercalcemia. Look up the side effects of too much vitamin D. Educate yourselves on both sides of the spectrum. Hypercalcemia is extremely painful! Take my advice, you don't want to feel this.
My mother died from malignant melanoma... Her oncologist (was retiring and had nothing to loose) told her not to use sun screen or sun block. He said they are dangerous because they block the wrong rays. Some rays provide vitamin D3 and are beneficial. Some rays are bad because they burn the skin and cause cancer. The only rays that get blocked from sun block/screen are the good rays that provide beneficial D3.
Vitamin D3 mixes with the cholesterol in the skin and converts to GcMAF. GcMAF is what orchestrates that symphony called the immune system. Without sunlight on your skin, your immune system will not work properly. Camelina oil on the skin has SPF that blocks the bad/burning/cancerous rays, while at the same time allows for the conversion of D3 to GcMAF.
ie: studies on pubmed.gov in 2017-2018
Dr Mayer I have not had a cold or any other infection in 5 years. I take 2000 units of vitamin D a day and a clove of garlic. Sorry doc, I have not been to the doctors in 5 years. I'm 68 and pump iron 5 days a week.
69 here, female, taking 5,000 IU per day for many years. Not sick even once! Physically active, eat well, physically active, and sleep well. Follow the Biblical way of eating and natural methods. Titus 2:13
I think you can get toxicity levels I have known about vitad3 along time took them for along while (50,000 iu sometimes 100,000 iu to top my fat cells up) a few months a go decided to start back up on them because I was starting to suffer the same symptoms I had before that vid3 helped, I was taking about 20,000 iu sometimes 10,000 perday for a few weeks I started having trouble sleeping (i was wide awake and wound up a bit) I was running to the bathroom a bit more, I was losing some of my appetite. stopped taking it orally. I feel better but I did forget you need to take vita a with it to make the vid3 act right, so far so good, I put the vitad3 on my skin and rub it in, plus I decided to start taking a daily supplement. will see how this goes.
Hi Dr. Mayer, so I have my blood test done with a result of vid d3 level of 652 nano... normal would be 20-100, so the doc said, I need to stop. I am really wondering as I feel better taking it, if not I feel like being in an burn out. Don't know what to do.
I live in Queensland Australia and I am vitamin d deficient. We are constantly told the sun is bad, especially our sun and there is so many reports about staying out of the sun wearing factor 50+spf clothing and sunscreen etc. Growing up all I heard was about the hole in the ozone layer and how it's worse for Australians and how we are all a high risk for caner and should stay out of the sun. So over the years I have stopped going out in the sun so much and when I did I felt bad or worried I might get skin cancer if I got burnt, because you can get burnt here within 5-10 mins of being in the sun. I have always piled on the sunscreen, worn long sleeved rash vests in the water and hats, and sat under a pop up tent on the beach.
Now I have started to educate myself on vitamin d I have found correlations between the vitamin and sleep, gut bacteria and all the other benefits you have mentioned. I have suffered terribly from IBS for almost 20 years. I had a colonoscopy and endoscopy and they found nothing wrong, they told me that I had low gut bacteria. I've been taking pro-biotics on and off but as soon as I stop taking them boom the problems come back. I eat a healthy diet with a good variety of foods but can never seem to maintain the bacteria.
I never realised that vitamin d is essential to the creation of gut bacteria and gut bacteria creates b vitamins which I am also deficient in and other vitamins because I do not absorb the minerals and vitamins from my food properly. I have also suffered from chronic reflux and heartburn. Now I see that it is all connected and the root is vitamin d.
I have started going out in the sun to prime my skin every single day and started to supplement with vit d. It's been three weeks and the first thing I noticed within in a week is that I actually slept properly! I could not remember the last time I didn't wake up in the night, well now most nights I fall asleep and stay asleep! I also used to toss and turn all night long and get twitchy now I sleep on one side and wake up still on that side, it means my body is being properly paralysed and my melatonin levels are stabilising so now my brain and body can do it's job of regenerating over night. I feel great in the mornings now and my face looks more plump. I have been taking my vit d with calcium and probiotics and it looks like I have lost weight, but really I am just not bloated any more. I have never been a morning person because I have always felt like a train had run over my face in the night and it would take me several hours to feel normal in the mornings, now i wake up at 7 naturally and feel great!
Summer is upon us here in Australia and I am going to make full use of it. If I plan to stay out in the sun longer than 15 mins I will put on sunscreen and a hat of course drink water like I normally do, but I am no longer going to be scared of the sun and make sure I get at least a little pink before putting on sunscreen because of course i don't want to burn.
wow i ve learnt so much from your detailed explanation..as i also have avoided the sun big time here in Australia...have self diagnosed with Bartonella in 2016 and treating with colloidial silver and diet....and taking VITD also but probably not enough
I just open your YouTube, Thank you.. can we just buy any brand of VIT D3 and Probiotic .I bought Puritans for both.any other suggestion? Other thing is should we also take VIT K2 with VIT D3 ? Thank you and look forward to hearnfrom you
D3 is everything. Too bad scoffers like Gary Small woodpecker remain ignorant of this fact in the light of overwhelming d3 deficiency now being exposed worldwide. Want to see the scope of this vitamin deficiency disease? - get a job in a prison and monitor the health disasters going on there. Its the same for anyone deprived of sun and adequate nutrition nursing homes or any institution that refuses to recognize vitamin deficit. its a fact disease equals vitamin deficit.
I rid myself of depression, anxiety and other mental illness by avoiding D. Deficiency is a result of illness, not the cause. 25D is a steroid. You may feel better for awhile till hidden inflammation wins the battle. Medical and dietary world has been fooled and has caused great damage by promoting increased ingestion of the steroid. Dr M is right.
I think the medical establishment won't acknowledge vitamin D because it is a fundamental part of evolutionary biology and modern medicine was established without acknowledgment of evolution. It's all based on virology and pharmaceutical intervention, often of one specific mechanism (if the mechanism is understood at all).
It's fraud masquerading as science because Pharma uses RTCs.
Hello doctor, I was vitamin d deficient a month ago, my level was 8 ng/ml and now after a month after supplementing my score is 50 ng/ml but i am facing muscle weakness in my legs n bone pain too.. i am unable to climb stairs easily as my legs feel very heavy n weak and i am unable to stand up from a low chair without any help, I am 26 years old male and i am worried alot. my calcium, magnesium, phosphorus n other minerals r in a normal range.. how much time generally it takes to strengthen the muscles n bones . kindly help.. R these osteomalacia symptoms i m facing..??
Mick Burke So is Super B Complex. It also reduces the number of migraines/severity of migraines, too. I’ve been taking Super B for years, and it’s been a blessing. I used to be on two migraine prescriptions, but since taking Super B, I haven’t needed them. I’m going to take more D, since I’m prone to colds and flu.
I have smoked 1 to 1 1/2 packs of cigarettes a day since I was 15. I believe working outside on roofs all day as an heating and air conditioning technician in the sun and not using any sunscreen for over 43 years created mega doses of vitamin d and saved my bacon. I'm retired now at 68 and have quit smoking 2 years ago. I am taking D3 as a supplement since I'm no longer on the roofs. No emphysema ,no COPD ,thank you sunshine ... and no skin cancer either
Curious, Chuck, surely they are spraying your skies and limiting sunshine, in your area, too. It has grown, exponentially (the number of spraying programs, including global-dimming and Op Solar Shield, via Harvard Univ.) So, have you noticed your vit-d level is low, or lower, today?
I think after a year of this (particular) spraying of nano-particulates, particularly metals/aluminum, everyone's vitamin-d level is going to go way down -- as is mine, and I walk, a lot. I wear shorts and short sleeves to maximize my exposure to sun. Never used sunscreen, either.

I agree with everything you said, including your knowledge about the the need for K2, etc. the only thing I take issue with is that your claim that the theory of evolution can be called a theory. It is at best an hypothesis and not a scientific theory. It is filled with assumptions, conjectures, and logical fallacies. It can't be called a theory in the same sense that we can call gravity a theory. We can actually test gravity. We even have formulas that can calculate the attraction of two bodies. Not so with evolution.
Silenus6, It's not really a minor factor when a man selling a product begins a long lecture with a set of definitions which at first glance seem to be saying -- this is a science-based lecture. It is a red flag when those definitions are not the definitions that science uses. I merely raised a red flag, indicating that the audience should be careful about information presented there.
The definition he provides for "theory" is "speculation." That is the layman's meaning the word -- which is opposite the scientific meaning. In science a theory is a general principle supported by a set of facts, as the theory of evolution.
However, the good doc did a lot of homework. Much of his information is correct, but not all. For example, he suggests that people aim to get their vitamin D blood test readings up to 80-100 ng/mL. That is the upper limit which is getting close to what is regarded as toxic level. Dr. Thomas Levy MD (cardiologist) says to not try to push it to the limit. He recommends the 50-80 range.
Dr Eisenstein recommends generally high amounts of D3, even up to a whopping 150,000 IU if one gets the flu!!!
Yet I did not see mention of two other vitamins that should be taken along with vit D3 in order to minimize that chances of toxic overdose. Namely vitamin K2. If excessive calcium is ushered into the blood by D3 it may be deposited onto artery walls. Vitamin K2 works to prevent that. VERY IMPORTANT.
It is also helpful to take vit A as cod liver oil OR retinyl palmitate along with D3 as this vitamin helps to usher out of the body excessive calcium brought in by too much D3.
And the definition of a "pedant", sir, is one who makes a display of learning by giving undue attention to a minor factor, -- for instance, while ignoring the wealth of far more significant information presented.
Superior, thank you! You know a few yrs back I had a low D level and began triple the dose of D3, and was eating yogurt and drinking more water and doing very easy excercise at home. I lost 35 lbs in one month and now it makes sense!
When I was in first grade, the whole class was given a small pox shot. Everyone but me had horrible bloody messes on their shoulders but I had no reaction and my fellow first graders told me it was because my shot did not "take." (However, I read in the wake of the 9-11 attacks that it was actually a sign I had above average natural resistance to smallpox.) However, every year, some small fraction of small pox vaccine recipients had horrible, debilitating, even fatal reactions, but this was deemed an acceptable price to pay to prevent small pox outbreaks. My point is that it is a universally admitted fact that small pox vaccines did horrible damage to some children every single year. Perhaps none of the vaccines used today are as nasty as the small pox vaccine, but are we really to believe that every vaccine is 100% harmless to every individual who receives it? That seems incredibly unlikely. After all, even caffeine kills some susceptible individuals every year. I also do not believe that complete harmlessness or even complete non-lethality is the conclusion of the scientific studies, regardless of how these studies may be (mis)represented in the MSM. All medical procedures involve trade-offs between safety and effectiveness, and some "casualties" are legally tolerated if the numbers are small enough.
I agree, if I knew what I know now I would of kept my children away from those vaccines. From personal experience 2 of my children broke out with eczema right after taking those series of shots they give infants at 2 months old. Eczema is in our genes but it triggered it out of the system. Makes sense. One of my children have yet to fully recover. We've had bouts with serious infections and hospitalizations and keeping it under control has been a struggle ever since. He's 6 now and doing much better. The eczema on his face was the most problematic and that's where it all started at 2 months old.
I'm a visual learner as well as an attentive listener. Now that statement by Dr. Vieth says, "However, 40,000 units a day, over several years, (will hurt them)." Am I missing something here, because what you spoke is contrary to what was written and presented. Was that part in the literature a misprint? I'm trying to get my D levels in a normal range which is currently 14.21, very low. Just got my blood test back from the VA today. At the time of the blood test, I had about 1000IU of D3 already in me. I'm trying to discern what is fact and misunderstood about the benefits of high dosing with vitamin D3 compared to what is being covered up by most doctors and pharmaceutical companies about the matter. My quest is to get better, hence why I'm bringing some attention to what was stated and what I'm viewing. Thank you in advance for clarifying.
Its never been tested but i wonder if we ate enough fruits or vegetables because sun light is inside those foods could we boost vitamin d through that far beyond any diet that the fda has provided because anything i have read by them has been wrong for the last 50 years+.Fruits and vegetables has never been tested to bring up vitamin d and other hormones and sunshine is trapted within every cell of them why has no body tryed to test this theory??I believe humans are like plants and trees and need photo synthesis to survive and maybe increase there lives long past 200 years just like trees or some plants that live longer than even humans i wish someone would put this too the test!The only way to do it is put someone on that diet or already take a vegan and see how much vitamin d he has in his blood stream and not just d3 but d1 d2 and d3,you would need vegans or even meat/vegan eaters too see these results pan out.
yes but we do not know what cholesteral is really made up of yet it might be made of calcium silica just like plants have on its surfaces that allow the plant to make food from the sun but like i said no investigation has been made into delving into this matter.
agreed but a plant does store sunlight inside itself to live are we ingesting it just some food for thought its never been test to raise or not raise vit even d2 for that matter so we cannot just dismiss it.
His statements about lack of sun, increased sunscreen use--those are fact...but, they fail at being Primary drivers of Vit. D deficiencies, because there are so many who still DON'T use sunscreens, and so many out playing in the equatorial sun, yet dramatically D-deficient!
Since this whole debacle started being recognized as a problem, I've wondered:
== WHY no one was looking at the many thousands of hormone-interrupting chemicals we all swim in 24/7?
== WHY no one was looking at the correlation between the drastic increases in massive D-deficiencies, and the introduction of GMO foods and the chemicals necessary to grow them!?
THOSE are far more relevant, imho, because everyone is exposed to those, regardless where they are, whether they are cave-dwellers or sun-worshippers, and irregardless of sunscreen use !
We can talk all we want about replacing D3. But, unless and until we get at the real root causes of the deficiencies, nothing will change to actually get better.
While we're at it, we also need to take far higher amounts of Vit. K2 and it's related compounds, lest all that D3 starts helping plaque up arteries and forming bone spurs, instead of building bones.
Doesn't that sound lots more like a better solution might include eating 2 or more heaping platefuls of fresh, organic produce, daily?
+kyyah2 YEs indeed! Most folks have some really off-kilter digestive juices..if they have any to speak of. Missing, or out-of-balance.
There are some low-tech ways to prod those back into service....like using a sequential eating habit, where one starts by eating the easiest to digest foods, then the medium ones, then the hardest to digest [proteins/fats] are saved for last....which means a much simpler, plainer diet, usually.
Then, there is paying attention to eating intentionally. Which means, you look at and smell the aroma of each bite of food, before putting it in the mouth...once in mouth, savor it well, chew it very well, THEN swallow.
Many also prefer to drink a cup or two of pure water, about 15 minutes before eating, to give enough fluid for the body to turn into all those liquid digestive juices. Some need helped by adding a Tablespoon or 2 of real Apple Cider Vinegar to one cup of water, and drink that with the meal, especially with the harder-to-digest foods.
And, paying attention to not eating too much volume of food and drink at one sitting.
HOW we eat, is as important as WHAT we eat, as well as WHEN. It all affects the digestive juices and processes.
+Winter Star Thank you for the advice. I had heard about Cilantro being effective, especially when coupled with Chlorella. As far as different diets go, I'm a firm believer in an organic & vegan one, for health and ethical reasons. And I actually just added something on probiotics to my "Nutrition, Ethics, & Animals" essay earlier today, if interested you can find it via the "My Essays" Wordpress link on the lower right of my youtube page banner. Peace.
+Colin Donoghue , yes fasting can help, but then again, it kinda depends on what a person has been exposed to. It can differ for each, for many reasons. For instance, 1st start with evaluating what condition your health is in now--presence of ills? Injuries?, chronic health issues?
Try to figure what you've been exposed to, which the body might be storing [sequestering toxins in various body tissues, like bones and fat cells, to protect the rest of the body from the junk causing problems].
If one is generally fairly healthy, it's a different thing.
Certain foods, such as Cilantro, are good at binding with toxins to help remove them, so putting a bunch of organic cilantro into smoothies daily, can help. There are also oral cheating formulas which can help slowly remove heavy metals and some toxins.
A Ketogenic diet can do some, as can a Paleo diet for some.
Grains seem to be a big problem for many more than can be diagnosed with flagrant Celiac disease, because there's no test yet, to measure a certain protein in people's digestive systems, which causes trouble with grains.
Food allergies must be accommodated, until the body can heal and deal with them properly.
Best thing might be to find a good Naturopathic Doctor [ND], to help you with this...one who specializes in nutrition, deficiencies, chemical overload, etc.
Be a bit wary of any practitioner who thinks they know it all, or have a system, or that you can only do it their way, or sell too many products. Make sure the practitioner really hears what you are telling them, and understands it...too many don't.
Tell the practitioner you want to focus on mostly just adjusting what you eat/drink, to help yourself, rather than buying numerous supplements....unless tests show you are failing to absorb nutrients from food.
About the only supplement I like to encourage, almost regardless of what else is happening, but especially if someone can only afford one thing: a good, high-count, broad-spectrum probiotic, daily.
That, alone, can do wonders for _so_ many conditions!
+Winter Star Do you have any chemical detox recommendations? I was just reading "The Miracle of Fasting" by Bragg which says fasting is helpful for that. And of course avoiding the toxic chemicals as best we can (household and personal care products, etc.).
Remember not to take a shower the day you expose your body to the sun light, 'cause vitamin D needs at least 24 hours to be absorb, white need only 20 minutes and black skin 45 minutes so your be making like 25,000 IU a day by doing it like this. Only need to do it 3 times a week.
And remember not to use sun cream, the more parts of your body you expose the most vitamin D3 you'll be making.
And remember to take it from 8:00 to 11:00 or from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm
+MountainwithaView There are more than one type of cholesterol,I had really high bad LDL cholesterol but I also had the highest good HDL cholesterol they had ever seen so maybe that was keeping me alive,anyways I had an alcoholic fatty liver so all I know is when the liver is busy breaking down alcohol and drugs then any fat and cholesterol doesn't get a look at and builds in your liver,I was one stage off cirossis when they caught it,vomiting,shitting blood,crazy itchy skin,yellow and red eyes,I gave up booze and lost two stone and am way healthier,you wouldn't know looking at me,my liver function is normal now but that doesn't mean it's not scarred to bits and still has fat in there,I need another MRI scan,your liver can do 100% it's job with only 30% healthy liver cells,but you wouldn't be wanting to fuck up that last bit of healthy liver.
I've lived fast and hard,good times,years of alcohol and coke and other drugs,it's all poisoning and coke and alcohol are more poisonous together than alone.
I used to work a hard manual job and seemed to be able to work it all off to an extent,as soon as I got into the office that's when it went down hill.Ive been sober over a year but still crave alcohol and the drugs I can take or leave but alcohol is a killer to ALOT of people,there is not enough room in the obituary s to put in all the alcohol related deaths,and the trouble it causes.
the chemical is cholesterol. 7-dehydrocholesterol to be specific. read the article that I sent you.
I'm sorry that you have high cholesterol. This natural product with no drugs in it, may help you and if it doesn't, help in 30 days, this company will give you back 100% f your money. All you have to do is call customer service on a toll free number and they don't pump you with questions, they just refund your money. I hope it helps. https://truevitalityplus.myshaklee.com/us/en/pws_search.html?q=cholesterol
OK, now finally, that makes sense. But, it does have to be absorbed from the skin into the body to get to the liver, and this can take up to 48 hours to be completely absorbed into the body. Here is a copy paste from an article:
"The skin converts 7 dehydro-cholesterol to pre-vitamin D. This step is triggered by the UVB present in sunlight at wavelength 290320nm, which was specifically measured in this study .This pre-vitamin D is later converted into vitamin D," said city-based endocrinologist A G Unnikrishnan, one of the researchers involved in the study.
Unnikrishnan said, "In our study , we found that the mean UVB rays were highest between 11am and 1pm throughout the year in all locations. No increase of serum vitamin D levels was observed after sun exposure in winter months. This finding is crucial as we now have evidence that people may be more prone to vitamin D deficiency during winter months."
+Fat Jan I don't know whether it specifically is proven to cause hair loss but when I started taking just 400 mg a day and biotin supplement my badly thinning left side top of my head on went away, filled in within 5 weeks. I was amazed. .I read and watched many videos and articles on all of the vitamins and decided to add those 2 to my multivitamin for women over 50 I took already.I also take omega 3 , many benefits come with enough of it and unless you eat a lot of high quality fish/salmon it is so hard to get . I can not remember the last flu or cold I got and I'm 57 and smoke a pack of cigs a day and have hypothyroidism so.....also my pains in my bones, muscles, general aching got so much better plus energy and motivation, feeling alive again . I suck on vitamin c drops too . good luck with the hair problem.
Similar to Michael Holick's presentation, but this video goes beyond the political/corporate/brainwashed MDs. It's very simple, calculate how much the body gets in the sun in an hour. We evolved outside, not inside. My concern is neither mentions K2 (MK7).
+Jam Fin I began adding d3 (1000-2000 units a day seems to be about right for most people) and selenium 400 mg and omega 3 to my multivitamin about 18 months ago and I started to feel like my old self again within weeks. I had been so fatigued and bones aching constantly and disinterested in getting up and doing anything sometimes. For years it kept getting worse. I added omega 3 because I found articles and videos where doctors said that a lot of what doctors are treating as depression these days is really a lack of omega 3. That is largely found in fish like salmon and Americans do not eat enough fish.So try that combo and drink at least 3 good size glasses of water everyday (you'd be surprised how dehydrated most of us walk around because we drink cokes, coffees etc that , due to the caffeine and other things in them, they tend to not really hydrate the bodies cells much. Hope you get to feeling better. I also try to go outside and garden some or pull weeds, or do anything that connects you with the actual earth. Even just laying on the ground at a park or something for 20-30 minutes a day can have very real positive effects on you.
because right now death seems that it would be less painful. I would be a very extreme case of a lack of vit D. I so truly pray this is helpful. If this can make things better for me it this must be able to bring others back from the dead so to speak. If there any other vit' or min's that should be taken with vit D I would be grateful for what is the best to add along with the Vit D. Thank you so very much. I hope.
+innHD Vitamins K2 + D3, Parathyroid hormone, calcium, magnesium, a long list of trace minerals, and, also if the thyroid glad is skewed...all that can optimize or mess with bone health.
Then there's all the nasty chemicals we are all virtually swimming in 24/7...it's not just Fluoride.
Plenty to study on.
Thank you for your nice presentation. I have been on vitamin D for years. I visited vitamin D symposium in Berlin years back. I heard eye opening presentation of Bruce Hollis and Michael Hollick. I am supporting member of John Cannell's vitamin D council. Since I take daily 4000 IU, I have experienced not one flu or cold.
Mmm. But, I have almost no vit-d in my system (even with supplements), and I have not had a cold or flu in decades. Why? I think it's the handwashing that helps that. Oh, and I never do allow myself to be jabbed with viruses (anymore. I almost died from that Swine-flu shot in 1976. Never again, and my docs agree, understand.)
Thanks for your information on Vitamin D. It does take Vitamin K and D together plus some trace minerals. PS What does Obama Care remark have to do with your subject? Don't we need health insurance to get the valued blood tests to check for many health problems so we can help ourselves to good vitamins for prevention?
+Megan Murphy I do not know the information about blood pressure but I will suggest that doctors are suggesting you take enough vitamin D3 not D2 to get 60 to 100 ng level as per blood test for Vitamin D level. Watch video here specifically to see the levels he is suggesting, blood level in nanograms (ng). He is suggesting 10,000 per day for adults minimum. You need to balance with K2, Vit. A.& Mg; Magnesium is often deficient; Take a highly absorbable one such as magnesium glycinate or liquid magnesium sulfate, after the advice of your doctor.&; Magnesium is the most helpful in lowering blood pressure and necessary for heart and other pathways.; If you are on statins you need CoQ10 or get off of them.
Salt? Why salt in chicken soup? I home make it all the time and only use a touch of sea salt if that. With a bay leaf, celery, carrots, pepper, etc you don't need to put salt in any soup or any cooking for that matter, use seasonings. Also it's according to the person themselves making it if they want to salt it, it's a choice. If anyone is foolish to buy any canned soups they are full of salt, though I think there are low sodium ones. I don't buy anything canned, the inside lining of the cans can cause cancer. ONLY eat fresh or frozen, never canned, boxed ore pre-made foods, they will kill you.
Yes vitamin d not d3 because d3 is rat poison.The powers that be are trying to kill you with calcium and d3.And if you look around D3 is added to our food supply and they always say take more.D3 does not reverse any form of arthritis and does not reverse any disease.What D3 does is sends calcium to your soft tissues like your arteries and heart thus causing hardened arteries [plaque].Get sun if you can get sun more,vitamin K2, magnesium, boron and trace minerals.For those who are older remember Tums and Rolaids in the 80 and 90 was real popular.These products were made from calcium and with fluoride added in our drinking water also caused calcification of the arteries.If you do not believe me just look at your shower head.O yea K2 reverses calcification.God bless all.And also look up 2007 D3 pet food poisoning.
vit d3 ABSORBS CALCIUM, without k2 it will drop it off randomly in the body such as arteries. soft tissue etc vit k2opens up pathways and turns on proteins so that calcium is directed into the skeletal system
For these new amounts of d3 a person could live in utter darkness 24/7/365 and likely their d3 levels would stay sky high. Let's see d3 causes cramping, high calcium, depletes magnesium, gives heart arrhythmias. All things I want to spend money on. Idiot medical "professionals". Leave unbroken things untouched!
Your info is wondrously accurate and delightful to hear. One thing one needs to understand also is that the ozone is different from the past. Statistically you cannot compare yesterday with today for filtration from the ionisphere.
we all need D..definitely...and we are all deficient in it, by design..from the lotions they tell us we Have to have, that Blocks the UVs which delivers it to the skin, to the synthetic foods we are sold that are barren of all worthwhile vitamins and nutrients....but..if you do take a vitamin D, even D3...you Must take vitamin K with it...or it Will hurt your heart..i am a heart patient..and did not know this..until i found out the hard way...so..yes, Please, get your D..but Don't forget your K with it, aye?
You say the the UV's deliver vitamin D to the skin. It is the UVB that makes it from the cholesterol on the skin. The UVA rays will actually destroy the vitamin D that the UVB rays formed if your out during the rest of the day when the sun is at an angle where the UVB rays no longer penetrate the earth's atmosphere. Glass will not let UVB rays through, UVA can also destroy the vitamin D on your skin if your driving in a car with the window up , or sitting by a window in your house, etc.
+federico sanasse D2 is often extracted from ergot. Some have trouble with ergot derivatives, or, their body cannot convert the D2 into D3 form the body needs in order to use it.
D3 is that form our bodies need in order to use the D.
So, that form should be OK for pretty much everyone.
At any point in the complex chemical reactions the body does, between consuming a nutrient, to converting it to useful form, to getting it to fit in at a receptor site, etc., any steps in the processes, can be interrupted by something, often, that is hormone-or nutrient interrupting chemicals causing the element to be unusable by the body.
But bottom line, if someone is having allergic symptoms to, say, D3, or anything which is basic to a body surviving, I'd be looking at what else the person is exposed to, or consuming, to see if it's something else.
For instance, someone says "I'm allergic to chocolate", but has not yet tried testing for chocolate alone--and if they did, was it plain, heated, ducted, or? What other ingredients are in the "chocolate" they ate, and got symptoms?
Lots to consider.
On today’s market there are many products with such orientation, but most popular is advertised brand Viagra tablets.
Appropriate tests show a positive result, which is about thirty per cent of all subjects. But here it is necessary to take into account the psychological aspect, since a positive result will not be at the unwillingness of sexual intimacy.
