Vitamin D is Really Amazing!

Here is a write up from Roger Mason, a friend of Supplement Spot.

Whatever condition and disease you study, vitamin D keeps coming up as a major factor. Vitamin D is the most important and deficient vitamin of all. Vitamin D is the most important vitamin in prostate and breast disease, for example. Prostate and breast cancer are identical in causes and cures. All American men will have cancer cells in their prostate if they live past 60. One in eight American women will get breast cancer. Vitamin D is the most important vitamin for bone and joint health. 95% of Americans over the age of 65 suffer from some form of arthritis or similar inflammation. Vitamin D deficiency is an epidemic in most of the world. Most people do not get enough sun exposure.It is not in your food. It only comes from sun exposure.

Did anyone ever tell you that vitamin D really isn’t a vitamin at all, but a hormone? That’s right, it is a hormone, and not a vitamin. Vitamins come from the daily food we eat, and there is no meaningful amounts of “vitamin” D in any food. Vitamin D comes from exposure to sunlight, and most of us do not get enough exposure to sunlight to make enough of it. In winter, and in northern climates, this is especially true.  You should not take more than 800-1,200 IU daily. Pseudoauthorities who tell you to take 2,000 to 5,000 IU are crackpots. Hyper levels of vitamin D, or any nutrient, will hurt your health, not help it. You do not need more than a total 400 IU supplement when you are getting exposed to the sun regularly. If you get in the sun from, say, June to September, you should not take anymore than what’s in your daily vitamin supplement.

There are several forms of vitamin D including D1, D2 and D3. You want to take D3 (calciferol). Vitamin D3 is converted in our bodies to the active form which is dihydroxy vitamin D. Doctors and pharmaceutical corporations keep promoting dangerous, synthetic, expensive, prescription only analogs of vitamin D. These can be patented and not sold over the counter. It is important not to take too much D3 as it is oil soluble, toxic in excess, and can result in side effects. Since you can’t get any meaningful amounts in common foods, this is not a problem at all.

Remember how popular cod liver oil has been for decades now? This is really because of the vitamin D content. People often really do get dramatic results from simply taking a spoonful of cod liver oil. This is because they are getting the vitamin D they need so badly. Of course, taking a multivitamin of inexpensive 400 IU vitamin D supplement is a much more practical- and tasty way to do this.

There are many reasons we suffer from so many diseases and conditions in the richest country in the world with the highest standard of living. One important and proven reason is lack of vitamin D in most people. Study after study shows people of all ages in most countries are deficient in vitamin D by blood analysis. This is especially true of the poor and the elderly. Along with your multiple vitamin just take an extra 400 IU capsule of inexpensive vitamin D when you’re not getting out in the sun regularly. No matter how well you eat you aren’t going to get any significant amount in your diet.

The science behind this is just overwhelming. People of all ages should take it. The international published science here is endless and growing. Vitamin D deficiency is a worldwide epidemic.
