Today I want to cover what you really need to know about vitamin D.
The RDA for vitamin D is 600 IU for adults under 70 years old. But, the studies that support this amount are outdated.
Vitamin D reaches the cells through vitamin D receptors. Unfortunately, you can’t use blood tests to determine what’s happening in the cells, and various problems can occur with these receptors.
For example, about 30% of the population has a genetic problem with the vitamin D receptor, meaning they have a difficult time getting the vitamin D they need.
Many health conditions are directly related to a problem with the vitamin D receptor, including:
• Autoimmune diseases
• Breast cancer and colon cancer
• Certain cardiovascular diseases
• Certain cognitive diseases
• Diabetes (type 1 and type 2)
• Metabolic syndrome
• High blood pressure
• Tuberculosis and certain infections
• Lyme disease
• Hair loss
• Crohn’s disease
• Respiratory infections
• Asthma and food allergies
• Low back pain
How to increase vitamin D:
1. Take more vitamin D
2. Take your vitamin D supplements inconsistently
3. Take magnesium
4. Take zinc
5. Take bile salts
6. Consume omega-3 fatty acids
7. Consume vitamin K2
8. Take resveratrol, curcumin, quercetin, and sulforaphane
9. Consume butyrate (vegetables)
