Vitamin D Trickery
By Atom Bergstrom
I get lots of vitamin D by exposing my food to sunlight.
I don’t need the weaponized version.
Re: What happens when I’m low in vitamin D?
Mostly likely someone in a white coat measured it in your blood serum and not in your fat cells where it belongs.
All vitamin D isn’t created equal.
According to Pam Popper …
“It is becoming increasingly clear that in many, if not most cases, low vitamin D levels are the result of illness, not the cause. This is a very important distinction, and it explains why so many intervention studies where patients have been given vitamin D as a supplement didn’t really show much result.”
The Daily Value for vitamin D has escalated from 200 IU/day to 600-800 IU/day.
It was once commonly known that taking over 400 IU/day was enough to mobilize vitamin D OUT of bone … but that’s now Medical Amnesia.
I know someone who regularly supplements with 50,000 IU/day … and their blood levels are remain low.
Glenville Jones & Hugh L.J. Makin (“Vitamin Ds: Metabolites and Analogs,” Modern Chromatographic Analysis of Vitamins, Third Edition, 2000) wrote …
“Vitamin D from skin or dietary sources does not circulate for long in the bloodstream, but instead is immediately taken up by adipose tissue or liver for storage or activation. In humans, tissue storage of vitamin D can last for months or even years.”
