The Power Behind Vitamin D

Solray-D vitamin D supplement
I was recently reading an article on Vitamin D from Nordic Naturals and found it so interesting that I wanted to share some of the highlights with you. We have known about the importance of Vitamin D3 along with Vitamin K2 (MK-7) for years from the training we’ve received from Dr. Robert Cass, the founder of the Physica Energetics professional line that we carry. I will be sharing some of that knowledge as well.

While the use of Vitamin D in bone health is now well established, what is considered a normal blood level varies greatly between allopathic medicine and natural medicine. In general, allopathic medicine believes a blood level around 30 is adequate; however, those of us in natural medicine prefer levels of around 70 for optimum health. Why would that be, you might wonder?

Vitamin D is first used by the kidneys to regulate calcium levels in the blood and cells which is critical for our survival. It is only when Vitamin D levels have satisfied this first need that the excess Vitamin D makes its way to the many cells of the body to help resolve various degenerative conditions. The more Vitamin D available to get to the cells, the greater the impact.

That said, the safety of Vitamin D is dependent on adequate Vitamin K2. As with all supplements, look for quality. Make sure you’re using Vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol), the naturally occurring form of Vitamin D. Also, it is important that the Vitamin K2 is in the MK-7 form. All K vitamins are similar in structure but MK-7 has what is called a long side chain. This enables this particular kind of Vitamin K to be almost completely absorbed by the body while at the same time remaining in the blood the longest. By staying in the blood longer, it gives it time to not only help the bones, but also the arteries, thereby lowering the risk of heart disease and decreasing serum cholesterol.

Research is showing that there are receptors for Vitamin D on all immune cell in our body. And research done by NIH is showing a direct correlation between the active form of Vitamin D and the interaction with different autoimmune diseases such as insulin dependent diabetes, multiple sclerosis, systemic lupus and rheumatic diseases. There are also quite a few studies being done showing the correlation between higher levels of Vitamin D and gut related disorders, especially Crohn's disease and Colitis but also including all inflammatory bowel disorders. How exciting is that! With the research showing that Vitamin D has an immune modulating effect, there is more hope than ever for those who are suffering from autoimmune immune disorders.

Optimum Vitamin D levels benefit bone health, hormone health, immune health, cardiovascular health, autoimmune disorders, depression and seasonal effective disorders and many, many more. With proper supplementation of Vitamin D3 and the proper ratio of Vitamin K2 (MK-7), we now have a simple, essentially side-effect-free way of helping so many conditions and disorders.
