ARE MOST OF US DEFICIENT IN VITAMIN D3 & DOES IT MATTER?
Yes! D3 is critical to immune, bone & joint health yet we rarely get enough of this crucial vitamin because very few foods, outside of fatty fish, naturally contain Vitamin D & D3. Sun exposure is the main source of vitamin D production, yet in overcast climates it's almost impossible to obtain the proper amount. Over acidity (pH imbalance) can cause leaching of calcium from bones. When calcium levels are low (often due to insufficient D3) the body produces PTH (parathyroid hormone). This hormone initiates the removal of calcium from the bones, to be used in more important functions including neutralizing body acidity. Organic bio-available D3 (in conjunction with our Calcium) is essential to drive calcium into the bones, promote normal bone growth & maintain density. Vitamin D is necessary to increase re-absorption of calcium & phosphorous (even adding calcium around damaged joints in people who suffer with gout or rheumatoid arthritis). Scientific evidence supports vitamin D3 plays an important role in controlling various autoimmune disorders. Studies show a high prevalence of MS in areas of the world that receive a low amount of sunlight (usually linked to vitamin D3 deficiency).

VITAMIN D3, PER SCIENTIFIC STUDIES, IS PROVEN TO PROMOTE :
.Immunity against cancers, heart disease, diabetes, weakness, muscle wasting & osteoporosis
.Bone Development & Bone Density Retention
.Joint Health
.Brain Development (a study of increased autism rates in children indicate possible link to D3 deficiency)
.Emotional Development
.Gross Motor Coordination

What is Vitamin D/D3 and why are we deficient? Vitamin D/D3 is critical to overall bone and joint health. Very few foods naturally contain Vitamin D. Fatty fish such as salmon and cod are good sources. The main source of vitamin D is the sun, which is possible if an individual lives in a sunny climate and spends a reasonable amount of time in the sun consistently. Colder climates, or areas where being overcast is more likely, it is almost impossible to average the amount of Vitamin D/D3 required.

pH Imbalance, i.e., over acidity may cause you to leach calcium from your bones: Calcium carries a 12 pH and is used by the body to neutralize body acidity, i.e., your body may leach calcium from your bones to neutralize either existing acidity or incoming acidity. When calcium levels are low (which may be due to insufficient vitamin D(3) and calcium/magnesium/boron intake or availability), the body activates the parathyroid gland, which produces PTH (parathyroid hormone), activating the parathyroid gland, which produces PTH (parathyroid hormone). This hormone initiates Vitamin D hormone production and assists removal of calcium from the bones to be used in more important functions such as neutralizing body acidity.

Bio available Vitamin D3 (in conjunction with Calcium) is essential to utilize calcium and phosphorus (drive calcium to the bone), for normal bone growth, development and to maintain bone density. Vitamin D acts as a hormone and increases re-absorption of calcium and phosphorous by the kidneys and may increase calcium around damaged joints in persons with gout and/or rheumatoid arthritis. Vitamin D3 has been used in conjunction with treatment, to prevent and treat a variety of disease. Scientific evidence supports that Vitamin D likely plays an important role in controlling various auto immune type disorders.

Bone Growth & Development: Vitamin D (with our Essante Calcium) is essential for normal bone growth and development, and to maintain bone density. It is also necessary for utilization of both calcium and phosphorus. Again, Vitamin D acts as a hormone and increases re-absorption of calcium and phosphorus by the kidneys and increased bone turnover. Vitamin D may also increase the availability of calcium around damaged joints in persons with gout and rheumatoid arthritis.

WHAT DOES VITAMIN D DO?

Vitamin D is essential for normal bone growth and development, and to maintain bone density. It is also necessary for utilization of both calcium and phosphorus. Vitamin D acts as a hormone and increases re-absorption of calcium and phosphorus by the kidneys and increased bone turnover. Vitamin D may also increase the calcium around damaged joints in persons with gout and rheumatoid arthritis. Vitamin D3 has been used to prevent and treat various cancers, including breast and prostate. Scientific evidence supports the concept that vitamin D likely plays an important role in controlling auto-immunity and MS.

VITAMIN D AND CHRONIC DISEASE

Studies done by P. Goldberg in 1974 show that the conspicuous high prevalence of MS in areas of the world that receive a relatively low amount of sunlight may indeed be linked to vitamin D deficiency. In the early 80s, science recognized that immune cells carry a receptor for the active hormone of vitamin D and that this hormone likely regulates immune functions. This led to ongoing research efforts which continue to uncover a number of important ways in which vitamin D hormone affects the immune system, and subsequent studies show that injections of vitamin D hormone could protect against or arrest MS, type 1 diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, and lupus. Other studies done in 1999 confirmed that supplementation with vitamin D was associated with a decreased risk of type 1 diabetes.

WHO NEEDS VITAMIN D SUPPLEMENTATION?

People with adequate access to sunlight usually do not need dietary vitamin D because ultraviolet light converts 7-dehydrocholesterol (abundant in skin) to vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol). A dominance of indoor jobs, fears of skin cancer and the use of sunscreens have reduced exposure times to sunlight such that, even in summer, many people do not get anywhere near the required vitamin D intake from sunlight. Chronic vitamin D deficiency exists in populations which live in low sunlight climates.

Because the use of steroidal drugs (in MS treatment) depletes vitamin D supplies and inhibits absorption, supplementation is quite beneficial. Anyone suffering from immune or autoimmune disorders can benefit from vitamin D supplementation.

Testing done (1992-1998) have revealed the following immune-regulating actions for vitamin D hormone:

*suppresses antibody production by B cells and the proliferation of T cells in the thymus.

*upregulates cytokines TGF-beta and IL-4, proteins which are produced by immune cells and act as suppressants of inflammatory T cells.

*reduced inflammatory reactions.

*inhibits the production of NO (nitric oxide) by immune cells. NO has been identified as one of the most destructive products of the immune system.

*Inhibits proliferation of activated and memory T cells, which are the main mediators of the inflammatory autoimmune reactions of MS.

VITAMIN D DEFICIENCY

Vitamin D deficiency causes rickets in children, exacerbates osteoporosis and causes osteomalacia in adults. Vitamin D must be taken with adequate amounts of both calcium and magnesium supplementation. When calcium levels are low (due to insufficient vitamin D and calcium intake), the body activates the parathyroid gland, which produces PTH (parathyroid hormone). This hormone kick starts vitamin D hormone production and assists removal of calcium from the bones to be used in more important functions such as neutralizing body acidity.

NATURAL SOURCES OF VITAMIN D

Very few foods naturally contain vitamin D. Fatty fish such as salmon and cod, vitamin D-fortified milk, cereals, and multivitamin supplements are the major sources of vitamin D. The main source of vitamin D is the sun and in hot climates such an intake is readily possible if an individual spends a reasonable amount of time in the sun. However, in colder climates, like those of Canada, northern USA and northwest Europe, it is almost impossible to average 4,000 IU per day because for at least six months of the year, intake from the sun is negligible at best. Even during the few hot summer months, an individual would have to spend considerable time in the sun to achieve the required intake.

DIETARY FACTORS THAT AFFECT VITAMIN D LEVELS

Original man's diet was dominated by fruits, vegetables, and lean wild meats which have a low saturated fat content. The main foods introduced by agriculture are grains, dairy products, and meat from domesticated animals which has a very high saturated fat content.

Grains contain phytate or phytic acid, which counters the action of vitamin D. The only common grain with a very low phytate content is rice.

In 1991, studies showed that part of the bovine albumin protein or milk is a molecular mimic of the vitamin D receptor. An immune reaction against that milk protein can potentially result in an autoimmune reaction against the vitamin D receptor, which would significantly lower the effectiveness of vitamin D hormone to bind with a variety of cells, including immune cells.

Proteins from various foods introduced by the agricultural revolution (gluten, dairy, legumes) result in autoimmune reactions by increasing intestinal permeability and by mimicking infectious and self-antigens. The great increase in the consumption of saturated fat also contributes to an increase in inflammatory reactions. Food-driven autoimmune reactions occur almost on a daily basis. They have a significant cumulative effect and result in harmless auto-immunity becoming problematic autoimmune disease in genetically susceptible people.

Alcohol consumption also interferes with vitamin D metabolism.
