What are some of the facts about vitamin D?
Vitamin D is really a hormone so supplemental vitamin D
doesn’t behave like a vitamin.
Vitamin D is actually a family of 7 different forms of D, much like vitamin C complex
25-hydroxyvitamin D (25-OH- D), the standard test for vitamin D, is not even the active form, so how can that give us an accurate reading of active vitamin D in the body?
Screening for vitamin D deficiency leads to hundreds of millions of dollars wasted in unnecessary testing costs annually.
Low-level daily supplementation with calcium and vitamin D can increase the risk of kidney stones. Magnesium deficiency plays a large and unrecognized role in these results.
High monthly doses of vitamin D increased the risk of falls in a randomized controlled trial of older adults with vitamin D deficiency.
The National Academy of Medicine says vitamin D intakes above 4,000 IU per day may cause renal impairment, hypercalcemia, or vascular calcification. Some of this damage maybe due to the synthetic nature of high dose vitamin D, which creates toxic metabolites.
Instead of high dose vitamin D, I recommend a well-absorbed food-based fermented cod liver oil/butter oil called Blue Ice Royal.
Otherwise, take vitamin D 3, but never more than
Always make sure you have adequate pico-ionic magnesium when you take vitamin D.
