The silent vitamin D epidemic

Postby Admin » 30 Jun 13 00:57

The silent epidemic that is sweeping the world and killing Billions each year
Vitamin D Deficiency is a world-wide epidemic, with over one billion people at risk for its associated diseases.
Blame for this is being put at the feet of the greedy dermatology fraternity due to them pushing the multi billion pound skin cosmetics and creams industry.
How do they sleep at night? maybe by counting the money they are making selling the creams.
The worlds top scientist in the field work of vitamin D and photobiology are now refering to the world wide vitamin D deficiency as now being epidemic proportions killing Billions worldwide each year and 20,000 in the uk alone each year through the chronic diseases that vitamin D prevents.
This is being grossly excacerbated by the wrong and imbalanced view information that the sun is bad for you and wrong advice being given out about always covering up in the sun.
Rickets is now on the rise in America also due to the misaligned information that the sun is bad for you.

Vitamin D Cofactors

A healthy diet is important for receiving vitamin D's cofactors.
Nutrients act in a synergetic way in the body. Absorption and metabolism of a particular nutrient will be affected, to a greater or lesser degree, by the other nutrients available to the body. This is also true with vitamin D.
In order to receive the most health benefit from increased levels of vitamin D, the proper cofactors must be present in the body. Vitamin D has many cofactors, but the ones listed below are the most important. Magnesium should be considered the most important one of all.
Vitamin K
Vitamin A (coming soon)

Supplementary and dietary magnesium
Daily needs
Men generally require more magnesium per day than do women. The US Government RDA for magnesium is not sufficient for maintaining adequate magnesium balance within the body, and both men and women may require more than is recommended.
Studies reveal the minimal daily requirement for magnesium is around 3 mg/lb (6 mg/kg). So, for a 160 lb (70 kg) adult, this would be about 420 mg. 9In addition, optimum daily intake is considered to be between 3-5 mg/lb (7-10 mg/kg), equaling somewhere around 490-700 mg. 9
Which form of magnesium?

Supplemental magnesium comes in many different forms, many of which have low absorption and bio-availability, decreasing their effectiveness. How effective a magnesium supplement is can be determined by two things:
 amount of elemental magnesium contained
bioavailability of the magnesium (determined by its source)
Magnesium oxide is the most common form of magnesium sold, but only about 4% is absorbed, making it ineffective at providing the body’s magnesium needs. One study even found magnesium oxide supplementation “resulted in no differences compared to placebo.” 
Magnesium taurate, glycinate, citrate, and gluconate have demonstrated higher absorption and bioavailability. Magnesium malate and glycinate are considered by many to be even more effective supplemental forms.

Transdermal magnesium chloride
Gaining in popularity is another form of magnesium, known as transdermal magnesium chloride or magnesium oil. Instead of oral administration, the magnesium chloride is applied to the skin where it is absorbed directly into the cells, bypassing the digestive tract. Due to this, magnesium chloride is said to be the most readily-absorbed form, though there have yet to be any studies performed.

Foods that contain magnesium
Nuts and seeds are a great source of magnesium.
The following foods are good sources of magnesium, providing anywhere from 64-170 mg per serving:
Seeds, especially pumpkin and toasted sesame
Beans, especially pinto and black
Plantain, raw
Nuts, especially Brazil nuts, almonds, peanuts

Supplementary vitamin K
Cheese is a great source for vitamin K2 MK-7, with Swiss Cheese having the highest amount. Daily needs: Unlike other fat-soluble nutrients, vitamin K is not stored in the body and must be received daily through diet or supplementation. In fact, research indicates one can become deficient in vitamin K in as little as 7 days. 37 In 2000 the National Academy of Sciences established the following Adequate Intake (AI) levels for vitamin K:
Children under 1 years: 2- 2.5 mcg
Children 1-3 years: 30 mcg
Children 4-13 years: 55-60 mcg
Adolescents 14-18 years: 75 mcg
Adult males: 120 mcg
Adult females: 90 mcg
Pregnant or lactating females: 75-90 mcg
Vitamin K needs increase with age. Older individuals will require larger amounts of vitamin K than will younger adults.
Due to increasing awareness of vitamin K's beneficial health effects, many scientists are now suggesting the recommended intake be increased.
Best source of the hormone called Vitamin D is thru natural synthesis iether from the sun or preferably sunbeds in a controlled environment of a tanning studio!
