THE VALUE OF VITAMIN D IN PREVENTATIVE MEDICINE

THE VALUE OF VITAMIN D IN PREVENTATIVE MEDICINE

Worldwide there is estimated to be 1 billion people with inadequate levels of Vitamin D in their blood.

Deficiency in vitamin D may increase the risk of a host of chronic diseases, such as osteoporosis, heart disease, some cancers, and multiple sclerosis as well as infectious diseases such as tuberculosis and even the seasonal flu. Belief is that high levels may even help prevent the Covid virus from proliferating.

Vitamin D is both a nutrient we eat and a hormone our bodies make. Vitamin D helps ensure that the body absorbs and retains calcium and phosphorous, both important for building bone. Laboratory studies also show that vitamin D can reduce cancer cell growth and plays a critical role in controlling infections.

There are reception sites for vitamin D on many of our organs and tissues. Some recent studies are showing Vitamin D may play a role in cardiovascular health to control blood pressure and prevent arterial damage. It can have a positive effect on immune function.

Vitamin K can be combined with Vitamin D to enhance bone density. Vitamin K is necessary for carboxylation (addition of a carboxyl group) of osteocalcin. If this does not happen osteocalcin cannot regulate calcium resulting in possible extra calcium being deposited in areas where it should not be (arteries and soft tissue).

In winter times especially we recommend the supplementation of VITAMIN D – however all year around is recommended to improve disease prevention.

WARNINGS
⦁ Cholestyramine may affect absorption of Vitamin D
⦁ Vitamin D may reduce calcium channel blockers effectiveness
⦁ Pregnant women should not take Vitamin K unless prescribed
⦁ Vitamin K may adversely interact with anticoagulant medication.
