Many people are frightened by the prospect of type 2 diabetes given all the risks that it comes with which include regular finger pricks for tests, and a host of complications for diseases like kidney and liver damage, and a higher risk of having stroke or heart disease. Preventing type 2 diabetes is then essential and recent studies have shown that vitamin D can help in that regard. The researchers already knew that vitamin D can help with insulin sensitivity and pancrease beta cells function so they wanted to find out the link between vitamin D and blood glucose levels. 680 women between the ages of 35 and 74 were experimented upon and they were given vitamin D supplementation and exposure to sunlight. They found a negative association between vitamin D and blood glucose level meaning that vitamin D, especially being exposed to sunlight, reduced the levels of glucose in the blood. They also found that vitamin D deficiency was associated with a high level of glucose in the blood. This present study was found to correlate with other studies between vitamin D presence in the body and glucose levels.

Key Takeaways:

  • Having type 2 diabetes is a frightening prospect because the condition entails a lot of complications like regular finger pricks for tests.
  • Since they already know that vitamin D can help one with insulin sensitivity and the function of pancreatic beta cells, the researchers wanted to find out the link.
  • 680 women were studied and they found that those who had high levels of vitamin D due to sunlight and supplementation had lower levels of blood glucose.

"Specifically, those who had high levels of vitamin D enjoyed a 55 percent lower chance of developing type 2 diabetes, a 51 percent lower change of metabolic syndrome, and a 33 percent lower risk of developing cardiovascular disease."

Up to a billion people worldwide may not be getting enough vitamin D, and this is a real problem because vitamin D deficiency can increase the risk of cancer, obesity and other health problems. Meta-analysis published by Current Pharmaceutical Design suggests that getting enough vitamin D can decrease fasting glucose and reduce insulin resistance. Vitamin D can also help moderate your bad cholesterol, as well as reducing your levels of C-reactive protein, which is a sign of inflammation.

Key Takeaways:

  • One health problem around the world that is affecting a lot of people is the fact that Vitamin D insufficiency or deficiency is becoming more pronounced.
  • When one is deficient in Vitamin D, some of the health problems that can be encountered are poor glycemic control, obesity, and hypertension.
  • A link has been found between vitamin D deficiency and diabetes and also another study found that the deficiency leads to high blood sugar levels.

"Three of the most significant risk factors for heart disease are high cholesterol, chronic inflammation, and insulin resistance. Researchers wanted to learn more about whether vitamin D supplementation is a way to lower the risk of heart disease or reduce complications in patients who already have it."

Subject: Experts find that vitamin D can soothe symptoms of COPD





European scientists recently published new research in the journal Thorax which indicates that correcting a vitamin D deficiency can mitigate breathing and lung problems caused by Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD). COPD symptoms include chronic bronchitis, asthma that cannot be reversed and persistent difficulty with breathing. However, the benefits only apply to people who have a deficiency of the vitamin. Vitamin D can help augment the immune system while reducing harmful inflammatory responses. Good food source of vitamin D include several species of fish, as well as eggs and mushrooms l.

Key Takeaways:

  • Not specifically one disease, COPD refers to an array of chronic, serious and non-reversible lung conditions, such as emphysema.
  • COPD sufferers with low levels of vitamin D may curb symptoms by consuming bitamin-D rich foods, like salmon, beef liver and egg yolks, so suggests data.
  • The data arises from a review of four randomized controlled trials that used more than 500 overall participants.

"Carried out by a team of researchers from Europe, the study revealed that supplementing with regular doses of vitamin D safely and significantly reduced the symptoms of COPD."

Subject: 10 Reasons why vitamin D is essential for your health





Vitamin D is considered the sunshine vitamin because it is synthesized by the skin when one is exposed to the sun. It is paramount for optimal health. It can only be found in a handful of foods such as fish, mushrooms, eggs, and fortified foods. The sun is the most important source of this vitamin. Many persons tend to spend less time outdoors that is why a third of the population is deficient in vitamin D. Here are some reasons why it is beneficial to take the sun and get this vitamin. One health benefit of vitamin D is that it improves muscle function. Deficiency of this vitamin is linked to loss of muscle mass and strength. Another health benefit is that it lowers the risk of asthma attacks by half. Vitamin D can also help to prevent and treat multiple sclerosis, and protect against Alzheimer’s and parkinson’s disease. Other health benefits are outlined in the article.

Key Takeaways:

  • When one gets exposed to the sunlight, his body begins to synthesize vitamin D that is why the vitamin is called the "sunshine vitamin".
  • Although the sun is the most important source of vitamin D, it can be found in foods such as fatty fish, certain mushrooms, eggs, and fortified foods.
  • When one has a deficiency of vitamin D, it has been linked to loss of muscle mass and loss of strength.

"These days, however, most of us tend to spend less time outdoors which may explain why more than a third of the world population suffers from low levels of vitamin D."

Subject: Is vitamin D a key factor in breast cancer prevention?





CDC data shows that nearly 41,000 American women died of breast cancer in 2013 alone, making it a leading causing of death among women from all racial groups. However, research indicates a strong association between living in a place with lots of sunshine and lower risk of breast cancer. This is almost certainly due to sunlight’s role in production of vitamin D. Only the type of vitamin D produced by the skin from sun exposure seems to have this kind of strong impact on breast cancer rates.

Key Takeaways:

  • Cancer is an ancient disease that dates back several years with the earliest known writing on it recorded about 1,600 years before Christ.
  • Among all the cancers, the most common and most feared of them all by many women is breast cancer and this is regardless of ethnicity.
  • While many scientists and institutions are battling hard to find a cure for cancer, there is a vitamin, Vitamin D, that can be used to solve the problem.

"In fact, breast cancer is the leading cause of death among Hispanic American women, and the second highest cause among white, black and Asian/Pacific women."

Subject: Vitamin D And Its Effect On Brain





Vitamin D has a wide range of vital health benefits for your bones, teeth, heart and endocrine system. Recent research suggests it also has a critical job in brain health and mental health as as well. Vitamin D deficiency — already associated with damage to the immune system and hypertension — may also put you at a higher risk of schizophrenia or cognitive impairment. This is a serious problem, given that there may be a billion vitamin D-deficient people in the world today.

Key Takeaways:

  • Vitamin D, which is sometimes referred to as the “sunshine vitamin,” is important for keeping the bones healthy, for boosting the immune system, and good cardiovascular health.
  • According to findings from research, when one lacks Vitamin D the immune system will be compromised and it can also raise the danger of hypertension.
  • It is well reported that there is a relationship between vitamin D and mental health. A study on rodents showed that vitamin D deficiency resulted in brain damage.

"New research finds that vitamin D deficiency influences a kind of brain “scaffolding” that supports the neurons."

Taking magnesium does not have to be done in supplement form. If you ingest foods such as buckwheat, Brazil nuts, and hazelnuts, you can naturally boost your levels of magnesium and aid your body in synthesizing adequate levels of vitamin D throughout your system.

Key Takeaways:

  • The vital nutrient, magnesium, is a mineral required for several hundred different bodily functions to ensue smoothly in humans.
  • Recently, The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition revealed more regarding one of the bodily processes that may depend on the interaction of magnesium.
  • A study, utilizing 250 human subjects, looked into data suggesting that a lack of magnesium could halt the body's metabolic pathway to vitamin D synthesis.

"Carried out by researchers from the Vanderbilt-Ingram Cancer Center, the study looked at whether supplementation with magnesium would affect vitamin D metabolism."

Over 7.5 million Americans suffer from Psoriasis, and researchers in Iraq have taken it upon themselves to spot any potential nutrient deficiencies associated with the condition. Physicians took blood samples from Iranian participants, and they surprisingly found that those who had a psoriasis diagnosis were shown to have insufficient levels of vitamin D. These levels were so insufficient, that they were actually 60% less than that of an individual with healthy levels of vitamin B.

Key Takeaways:

  • A chronic skin problem that affects over 7.5 million Americans is psoriasis and it can result in complications such as arthritis.
  • A team from a University in Iraq has found that the complications associated with psoriasis can result in a reduction in vitamin D and zinc in affected individuals.
  • To analyze their study, they collected blood samples from persons infected with psoriasis and then compared those blood samples with those of healthy individuals.

"The team found that vitamin D levels in those with psoriasis were at least 60 percent lower than healthy individuals. Similarly, zinc levels of people with psoriasis were lower by a third, compared to those who do not have the condition."

Vitamin deficiencies are running rampant around the world, impacting a substantial amount of individuals. Over 70% of Malaysian women in urban areas tested positive for a vitamin D deficiency, specifically. The reason so many Malaysian women are prone to vitamin D deficiencies is because they have darker pigmentation, and they are heavily restricted in many forms of clothing. The lack of sunlight exposure due to these characteristics is what potentially contributes to an increase in levels of depression.

Key Takeaways:

  • It is widely known that Vitamin D is linked to calcium and bone growth, but the deficiency has also been linked to depression among Malaysian women.
  • Vitamin D is gotten by the body through skin synthesis when exposed to the sun but these women are deficient through darker skin pigmentation and religious clothing styles.
  • Some of the signs one can perceive when a person is deficient in Vitamin D are back or bone pain, getting sick or infected oftener, and hair loss.

"Based on the study findings, over 70 percent of the urban Malaysian women surveyed were vitamin D deficient."

Vitamin D is extremely important for your health. However, in the winter time it can be difficult to get enough Vitamin D because of the lack of sunlight. A 2010 study showed that over 40% of Americans have a Vitamin D deficiency. Risks associated with Vitamin D deficiencies include fatigue and weakened immune system. Risks get more serious and also include cardiovascular disease, cancer Multiple Sclerosis and Alzheimer's disease. All of these diseases come at a higher rate in people who do not have sufficient Vitamin D.

Key Takeaways:

  • Children lacking sufficient amounts of vitamin D are at a high risk of developing the disease called Rickets.
  • Children with Rickets have weakened skeletal systems and soft, easily damaged bones.
  • For optimal health, including the prevention of Rickets, the Mayo Clinic advises that children up to the age of 1 receive 400 International Units of vitamin D daily,

Subject: Does magnesium hold the key to vitamin D benefits?





Dr. Qi Dai teaches medical courses at the Vanderbilt University Medical Center, and he has recently conducted a study surrounding the link between magnesium and vitamin D production. The study determined that when someone has a deficiency of magnesium, it ends up blocking both the pathway and the metabolic process that is necessary for vitamin D to properly enter our systems. Having sufficient levels of vitamin D is an essential component in ensuring that we can correctly metabolize magnesium.

Key Takeaways:

  • A recent study published in The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition shone the spotlight on the important link between Magnesium and vitamin D.
  • The study was undertaken by a team from Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville Tennessee.
  • Dr. Qi Dai, of Vanderbilt University, collated and analyzed data culled from input taken from 1200 individuals who took the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey.

Endocrine-disrupting chemicals such as BPA are a group of over 80,000 manufactured chemicals that are present within the products that we use on a consistent basis. These chemicals can unfortunately lead to many health implications such as cancer, heart disease, and diabetes. Studies have even shown that those who are exposed to higher levels of EDCs are more prone to developing Vitamin D deficiencies. All of these harmful health risks show just how dangerous these man-made chemicals can be to our bodies.

Key Takeaways:

  • It has been revealed that countless times Big businesses can make the government to approve their toxic chemicals and their true sinister nature is known after a long time.
  • As a nutrient, Vitamin D has a lot of uses for the body. It promotes bone health, and benefits the brain and immune system.
  • After conducting 1300 studies on endocrine-disrupting chemicals (EDC), the endocrine society has found that these EDCs can contribute to infertility, obesity, diabetes, and neurological problems.

"But recent research has shown that the hazards of BPA and other endocrine disruptors can even cause vitamin D deficiency — which can cause a whole host of other health issues."

The Institute of Medicine has historically recommended the average individual taking in 20 ng/mL of vitamin D each day, but now studies are showing that this may be much lower than what our daily intake should consist of. Researchers at UC San Diego recently preformed a case study that showed patients who took in 48 ng/mL of vitamin D each day were shown to reduce their cancer risk by up to 67%. These staggering results show that the Institute of Medicine may have to redetermine their daily guidelines.

Key Takeaways:

  • Researchers have published the results of some studies that shows that optimal levels of Vitamin D, like 48 ng/mL, can lower one’s risk of having cancer.
  • The institute of medicine has been recommending a level of 20 ng/mL for years but this study found that it was not close to the optimal.
  • In fact, higher levels of sun exposure in one’s lifetime, as seen in southern latitudes, reduce one’s risk of having breast cancer.

Want to get enough vitamin D? Try supplements or sunshine

If you are a person that lacks in Vitamin D, there are a couple supplements OR all natural ways to help. According to the US Preventive Services Task Force, Vitamin D supplements are ineffective in preventing cardiovascular disease or cancer. In fact, some supplements may take up to years to see a results. An easier way to help increase Vitamin D, is to simply lay in the sun. Vitamin D is actually a hormone that resides in our skin and is triggered by the sun's radiation.

Key Takeaways:

  • For more than two years, over 26,000 people have participated in the VITamin D and OmegA-3 TriaL (VITAL).
  • Dr. JoAnn Manson, who leads the VITAL project, says VITAL’s unprecedentedly long duration and large sample size make it more conclusive than the much shorter, smaller Vitamin D trials of the past.
  • Many people have too little Vitamin D in their bodies because they don’t get enough sunlight, a situation not helped by constant warnings about the skin cancer risks of sunlight.

"By the end of 2017, we’ll know who got vitamin D and who got the placebo, and whether the vitamin D group had lower rates of those health problems than the placebo group."

Cut your risk for liver cancer by HALF by just increasing your vitamin D levels

Study suggests that close to 40% of individuals will experience cancer, personally in their lifetime, whether it happens as a small brush with an easily removed melanoma, or whether it manifests as something far more lethal. Much of how the 'cancer' card plays out for any one of us, however, is beyond our scope t do much about. But, we can control what we consume, which can in turn affect our chances.

For example, study also suggests that use of vitamin D can significantly slice one's cancer risk. However, while the general slice afforded those that make use of vitamin D is estimated at a generous 20%, the vitamin offers an even deeper cut when it comes to one of the most deadly cancers, liver cancer. The data, based on thousands of Japanese study subjects, followed for more than a decade, suggests that the risk, specific to liver cancer, could be as high as 50%.

Key Takeaways:

  • If you have high levels of Vitamin D, your risk of liver cancer can be reduced by as much as 50 percent.
  • One study showed that taking Vitamin D supplements four times a week reduces one's risk of developing breast cancer.
  • It is difficult to get enough Vitamin D from diet alone, so spending a lot of time outdoors in the sun is key.

"We don’t get to choose whether or not we’ll get cancer or which type we might develop, so this may feel like a losing battle, but the truth is that you have more power over cancer than you think."

Vitamin D is so important researchers worry about ethics of limiting supplementation to perform research trials

In order to effectively study vitamin defriciencies, many pharmaceutical agencies hold controlled studies that are overlooked by medical physicians. These are typically done by giving some participants the vitamin supplement, while others get a placebo. In the case of vitamin D, however, experts are labeling studies to be unethical because of the potential damage that participants could face if they become deficient while on the placebo due to their vitamin D levels dramatically dropping to an unsafe level.

Key Takeaways:

  • Many researchers view Vitamin D as so important to overall health that they are concerned about the ethics around limiting D supplementation specifically for research.
  • According to Dr. Leigh Frame of George Washington University School of Medicine, denying someone deficient in vitamin D could cause both long- and short-term health problems.
  • One solution to this dilemma would be to allow vitamin D studies but to monitor all participant’s D levels and provide the placebo group a rescue repletion at the completion of the study.

"In case you needed any more proof of how essential vitamin D is to good health, researchers have warned that placebo-controlled trials that involve limiting some people’s intake of the all-star nutrient could be considered unethical."

Women that are low in Vitamin D have been found to have an increased risk of multiple sclerosis. This was claimed by a brand new study. The link between these two things has recently been found in a new study. Checking the Vitamin D levels in the blood can help to determine and assess the risk of this debilitating neurological disease. There have only been a handful of studies done that show how levels of vitamin D can predict risk.

Key Takeaways:

  • young and middle aged women with healthy vitamin d levels are at less risk of debilitating neurological disease
  • more research is needed on the optimal dose of vitamin D for reducing risk of MS
  • vitamin d is best gained from the sun but is also found in milk and various fish.

"According to the findings, published in Neurology, checking vitamin D levels in the blood can help determine and assess the risk of this debilitating neurological disease."

Hypothyroidism occurs when the thyroid gland is performing at below the usual capacity due to a deficiency in the amount of thyroid hormone being produced by the body. When the thyroid is underactive, it leads to the underperformance of other important bodily processes. The thyroid gland needs sufficient levels of iodine in order to function properly. In addition, omega-3 fatty acids, selenium, pectin, and Vitamin D all help to ensure the successful operation of the thyroid as well.

Subject: Vitamin D and folic acid can help deal with depression





Vitamin D and folic acid are two natural chemicals that affect neurotransmitter function, and low levels of either can contribute to depression. Vitamin D is normally produced by the skin when hit by sunlight, so can run short during the winter. Low iron levels can also affect brain function by limiting the blood's ability to supply the brain with oxygen. Fortunately, levels of all these substances can be boosted through nutrient-rich foods.

Key Takeaways:

  • Vitamin D is produced when the skin is exposed to the sun's ultraviolet rays.
  • In regions where sunshine is limited in winter, more people tend to suffer from depression.
  • The theory that a shortage of vitamin D is related to depression is widely supported.

Vitamin D is one of many essential substances that our bodies need to function properly. It should be one of the easiest vitamins for us to get since it is provided by the sun. However, recent culture has lead us to spend more time inside, which makes it more difficult. This vitamin helps our bodies maintain bone, immunity, and brain health as well as having many other benefits. It has also been linked to less inflammation and pain, which can be very helpful for athletes. If you suffer from these issues, you may need to check your vitamin D intake.

Key Takeaways:

  • Vitamin D is so essential for our existence that our bodies have evolved to get it from the sun, the only nutrient source that’s available on almost every square inch of the planet.
  • Much of the nutrient is stored in our adipose tissue, so more body fat means less is available for use.
  • Some supplements, even staples like multivitamins and fish oil, still come with their fair share of controversy. Vitamin D isn’t really one of them.

"Vitamin D has been linked to reduced inflammation and pain, a lower risk of fractures, and an increase in muscle protein and type II muscle fibers."

Subject: Vitamin D: Health Benefits, Facts and Research

Vitamin D is an extremely important vitamin that has a hand in many functions of the body. Luckily, it is also called the sunshine vitamin and can be added to your body simply by going outside. Some people, however, are still deficient and in these cases a supplement may be prescribed. This way a person can have healthy bones, regulate insulin levels, support their immune system and much more. There are health risks, but the possibility of them are low.

Key Takeaways:

  • Adequate vitamin D intake is important for the regulation of calcium and phosphorus absorption, maintenance of healthy bones and teeth
  • In spite of the name, vitamin D is considered a pro-hormone and not actually a vitamin. This is because the body is capable of producing its own vitamin D
  • It is estimated that sensible sun exposure on bare skin for 5-10 minutes 2-3 times per week allows the body the ability to produce sufficient vitamin D

"Adequate vitamin D intake is important for the regulation of calcium and phosphorus absorption, maintenance of healthy bones and teeth, and is suggested to supply a protective effect against multiple diseases and conditions such as cancer, type 1 diabetes and multiple sclerosis."

Vitamin D3 Sources

d3 food sourceA handful of sunshine everyday is what our body requires to retain its sheen and keep our health problems at bay. Human skin when exposed to ultraviolet rays of the sun manufactures vitamin D-3 orcholecalciferol for its consumption. It is recommended that lighter skin individuals receive 10 to 15 minutes of sunlight daily. Darker individuals, on the other hand, should receive almost double the amount of sunlight, up to 25 to 30 minutes daily. Other best natural food source for vitamin- D3 is fish products, such as: cod liver oil, tuna, salmon and sardines.

Apart from the tablets or liquid vitamin D-3 supplements, fortified milk, breads, cereals and eggs are lesser vitamin D3 sources.

Lists of health benefits for Vitamin D-3:

  1. VITAMIN D-3 is not only a boon to children's healthy teeth and bones, it is one such nutrient that work as a miracle to treat osteomalacia which causes muscle and bone weakening in adults. It may also reduce major medical risks in elderly if taken in high doses and improves immune system.
  2. It promotes calcium absorption thereby preventing loss of bone mass and treating several bone disorders.
  3. It lowers the risk of colon, breast, and prostate cancers.
  4. Rheumatoid arthritis and psoriasis is improved with vitamin D3.
  5. It not only prevents but also help treats rickets which later leads to bone deformities, post menopausal osteoporosis, hypoglycemia and the development of Type 1 diabetes.
  6. It also plays a significant role in slowing the degenerative process in multiple sclerosis and Chronic cerebrospinal venous insufficiency.
  7. Vitamin D-3 and curcumin synergistically clears brain tangles to help prevent depression and Alzheimer's dementia. There are multitudes of vitamin D receptors in the brain therefore it is believed to maintain and enhance mental health.
  8. It prevents PRE-Eclampsia which occurs during pregnancy and produces protein in urine, high blood pressure and edema. It leads to pre-mature labor and is the main cause of death during pregnancy.

Can Vitamin D-3 Do More For Bone Health Than Calcium?

Author: Darrell Miller (dm@vitanetonline.com)
Subject: Can Vitamin D-3 Do More For Bone Health Than Calcium?

Loss of density and mass in bones has become very common these days because of the increase in the number of people suffering from osteoporosis. It is shocking to note that the number of osteoporosis related fractures in US is more than 1.3 million. Bone health can be improved by taking the right nutrients and minerals. It is generally assumed that calcium is the only mineral needed to prevent and treat osteoporosis. Calcium supplement have been used by many people to improve their bone strength. is it correct?

Do calcium supplements treat osteoporosis completely?  The answer is NO.

A recent study conducted in Iceland concludes that maintaining right levels of vitamin D-3 provides greater protection to bones than taking calcium supplements every day.

What are the results of this study?

Maintaining ideal levels of PTH or parathyroid hormone is essential for bone health. It has been proved by researchers that sufficient vitamin D-3 levels ensure the ideal level of PTH and not calcium. PTH is not in the ideal level in an individual who takes more than 1200 mg calcium a day if he has vitamin D deficiency. On the other hand PTH level is ideal in a person who has sufficient vitamin D even if he takes less than 800 mg of calcium a day.

Vitamin D-3 has calcium sparing effect and if the status of vitamin D in the body is assured, there is no need to take calcium of more than 800 mg a day. The results of this study clearly indicate the importance of vitamin D-3 for bone health. It is clear that sufficient levels of vitamin D-3 are more important than sufficient levels of calcium to prevent osteoporosis. In another study, women who were hospitalized for osteoporosis related fractures were studied. It was found that more than 50% of them had vitamin D-3 deficiency.

The duration of the study was two years and it proved that vitamin D-3 supplementation improved the bone strength and reduced the risk of fractures in these women. It is an unarguable fact that calcium is an important mineral to build bones and to keep bones healthy and strong, but how does the human body absorb calcium? It is the presence of vitamin D-3 that helps in absorption of calcium. Without adequate vitamin D-3, intake of calcium supplements is meaningless.

To absorb calcium sufficient amount of vitamin D-3 must be present in the body. Vitamin D-3 is also needed for the efficient utilization of calcium by the body. The mass and density of the bones are increased only when calcium is absorbed by the body. Absorption of calcium is not possible without vitamin D. Vitamin D-3 plays an important role to build bones in children and to keep bones strong and healthy in adults. It also improves immunity, prevents muscle weakness, regularizes the functioning of thyroid glands and helps in blood clotting.

Deficiency in vitamin D-3 may increase the risks of Alzheimer's disease and rheumatoid arthritis. Vitamin D-3 is the natural form of vitamin D. It is produced when skin is exposed to the ultraviolet rays in the sun. Those who live in latitudes, who have dark skin, who spend most of the day indoors and who wear sunscreen lotion whenever they step outdoors lack sufficient levels of vitamin D-3. They should take Vitamin-d supplements to avoid a lot of health risks and to improve their bone health.

Vitamin D And Calcium - Phosphorus Absorption
TopPreviousNext

Date: January 14, 2011 12:21 PM
Author: Darrell Miller (dm@vitanetonline.com)
Subject: Vitamin D And Calcium - Phosphorus Absorption

The human body is indeed a very complex system that needs various vitamins and minerals to sustain its vigor and life. One of the essential vitamins that is a must for our body to have is Vitamin D. The function of the said vitamin would sound very simple but if you ponder it deeper you will realize that beyond the simplicity lies its true essence and use.

The most vital function of vitamin D is for calcium and phosphorous absorption for bone and teeth growth. Not only that, it also aids in regulating the use and consumption of both minerals. To simply elaborate the vitamin’s mechanism of action, here goes the explanation. Adequate intake of Vitamin D could help your body decipher whether phosphorous and calcium will be deposited into your bones or would be discarded out of your system. Hence, for individuals who do not have sufficient intake of vitamin D, they would find it difficult to maintain homeostasis of the two essential minerals- calcium and phosphorous.

As early as now, we have to do our best and engage in different ways and means on how we can ensure that our body is getting enough vitamin D. It has been stated in several medical literatures that with adequate exposure to morning sunlight for approximately twenty to thirty minutes or an hour depending on the person’s skin tone, the body could generate its own vitamin D. the explanation for the difference in the required exposure is based on the fact that individuals who have dark colored skin has undeniably more skin pigments that could filter ultraviolet rays.

Because vitamin D is responsible in maintaining the health of your bones and teeth, a deficiency with the said vitamin would lead to a condition known as rickets. Rickets is characterized by bone fragility caused by depletion of calcium and protein deposits in your bones. However, as the golden rule dictates, too much of everything is bad. So if you consume too much of vitamin D, there would be a high probability that it will cause you a problem in your kidneys, heart and other vital organs brought about by calcium deposits.

Vitamin D can be found on the array of foods that we eat. Some food groups that contain high and liberal amounts of vitamin D includes: butter, milk, cod liver oil, cream, yogurt, tuna and egg yolks. However, despite of their high content of vitamin D, extra caution must be employed in eating such foods for it contains high level of bad cholesterol that is very detrimental to one’s body which in the long run would bring you to an undesirable state of health. Another wonder that vitamin D brings is the capacity of slowing down the growing number of cancer cells and in preventing grave illness such as multiple sclerosis, psoriasis diabetes mellitus and arthritis.

Natural Vitamin and Herbal Alternatives For Joint Health
TopPreviousNext

Date: October 18, 2007 03:58 PM
Author: Darrell Miller (dm@vitanetonline.com)
Subject: Natural Vitamin and Herbal Alternatives For Joint Health

Joint tissue breaks down and arthritis sets in for a number of reasons, and there are several natural alternatives for joint health that can be use to prevent this and to treat affected joints.

Thyroid problems can slow down the production of adrenal hormones that are responsible for the production of cortisone and cosrtisol. These are anti-inflammatories, that when unavailable or in low supply can result in joint inflammation. If you suffer joint pain in the mornings that tends to improve as the day goes on, then it is likely that is the cause since adrenal activity can improve as the day progresses.

One of the main reasons for joint tissue breakdown is osteoarthritis whereby the cartilage wears down until it fails to provide the necessary protection against impact between the bones in a joint, or against the friction generated when two bones rub together. Injuries to joints can have the same effect, whereby an injury to a hip or knee can appear to clear up and then later the cartilage wears out sooner than expected. This can take several months or many years, depending on the severity and nature of the injury concerned.

Continual wear and tear can also cause joint tissue to break down. Athletes and other sportspersons often suffer twenty years or more after retirement from their sport due to the gradual wearing down of cartilage while they were active. Once they stop, this continues to a lesser extent until the cartilage is eventually worn away sufficiently for it to stop protecting the joint.

Problems with the auto-immune system can lead to rheumatoid arthritis and inflammation of the joints. This weakens them and can eventually completely destroy the tissue. In such cases the tissues in the joint tend to swell and become extremely painful. Gout can also damage joints, especially in the big toe. This is caused through a built up of needle sharp uric acid crystals. Another cause is a deficiency in sodium and potassium in the diet that are needed to help maintain calcium in solution. When these metals are in deficiency due, for example, to an adrenal problem or some other reason, calcium can deposit right in the joints, causing undue pain.

Calcium and vitamin D deficiencies are commonly associated with arthritis sufferers, and protein deficiencies are also believed to be a contributing factor of rheumatoid arthritis, and it is also true that degenerative arthritis can accompany rheumatoid arthritis. This occurs in almost 40% of cases, and diet and nutrition are now being recognized as a major cause of both types. Deficiencies in folic acid or its natural form of folate, vitamin E, zinc and selenium have all been associated with degeneration of joint tissue, so it makes sense that a supplement of these substances can help to avoid these conditions.

Standard medical treatment, however, is for the relief of pain and reduction of inflammation through the prescribing of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). Typical NSAIDs are aspirin, ibuprofen and naproxen. Although it relieves pain, paracetamol is not an anti-iflammatory. An alternative to blocking the inflammatory reponse is to help to regenerate the damaged joint tissue.

However, reducing the inflammatory response to tissue damage does not address the underlying problem, but masks it. Not only that, but there are side effects associated with the use of NSAIDs. Excessive doses can create serious gastrointestinal problems, such as bleeding, ulcer perforation and even death is possible in severe cases. Anti-inflammatories cause gastric problems in up to 20% of cases

The newer Cox-2 inhibitors act on the enzyme that causes the inflammation within the joint, and while these can be very effective, they are still masking the underlying problem. Incidentally, the Cox-2 inhibitors should not be used with NSAIDs, and both increase the possibility of a myocardial infarction or heart attack. Also, if you are taking aspirin to reduce the risk of heart problems, you should be careful not to use other NSAIDs since they can interfere with the effects of the aspirin.

More effective in the long run is to treat the conditions with substances that deal with the cause of the problem. Vitamin C, for example, improves the lubrication effect of the synovial fluid in the joints, and vitamin E is a strong antioxidant that can help to repair damaged tissue and improve the circulation within the joints. Joints have very low blood circulation levels, which is a problem when trying to direct drugs to the joint tissues. Vitamin C is also good for improving the integrity of connective tissue. Zinc, manganese and copper are also instrumental in developing strong connective tissue and helping to repair the damage done to the joints.

Horsetail is a commonly used herbal remedy that can be taken as a tea, tincture or in capsules. It is the richest natural herbal source of silicon, which is used by the body to form connective tissue and collagen. Damaged connective tissue is rapidly repaired by horsetail, and its strength and elasticity significantly improved. It is commonly used in the treatment of arthritis and osteoporosis.

Cat’s Claw is used for its beneficial effect on the immune system, and frequently used successfully to treat osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. However, this treatment is used more to help reduce the inflammatory effects of the condition than to effect a long lasting cure. Gotu Kola, also called Indian pennywort, is traditionally used for treating arthritis. The fresh leaves are effective in reducing the inflammation and pain, and help to improve the quality of life of arthritis sufferers. In Australia, it is referred to as ‘the arthritis herb’ and two leaves a day are said to be effective.

Another popular remedy is MSM (methylsulfonylmethane), although it is claimed to provide pain relief rather than a cure. Amino acids also seem to help, and L-cysteine helps promote collagen and connective tissue. It appears to work best when taken in combination with vitamin E and selenium that are powerful antioxidants. L-arginine has a similar effect in the reconstruction of joint tissue, again helping to repair damaged connective tissues.

There are therefore two approaches to treating both rheumatoid and osteoarthritis, one providing pain relief and reducing inflammation, and the other repairing the damage done to the joint tissues. Vitamins, minerals, trace minerals and herbal remedies are used in both, though it is better to use a combination that provides pain relief and also helps to regenerate strong connective tissues in the joints.

When using combinations of remedies it is important that possible interactions are understood, and you should always seek the advice of your physician when using non-prescription remedies of any kind.

Subject: Vitamin D Shows Promise For Cancer Prevention…

Vitamin D Shows Promise For Cancer Prevention…Researchers from the Creighton University School of Medicine, Nebraska, studied 1,179 healthy, postmenopausal women over four years to determine the benefits of vitamin D3 for cancer prevention. The women, from rural Nebraska, supplemented their diet with randomly assigned daily dosages of 1,400 mg – 1,500 mg supplemental calcium; 1,400 – 1,500 milligrams supplement calcium plus 1,100 IU of vitamin D3, or placebo. The women were 55 years or older and free from known cancers for at least 10 years prior to entering the study. Over the four-year trial, women in the calcium with vitamin D3 group experienced a 60 percent decrease in cancer risk compared to the placebo group. Researchers also found a 77 percent cancer risk reduction with the calcium with vitamin D3 group in the last three years of the study. Further studies are needed to see if the results apply to other populations. (American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, June 8, 2007, volume 85, issue 6, pages 1586-1591)
