Many of you probably already know that vitamin D helps calcium absorbance, thus it is crucial for bone health.
But what about the its other benefits??? Did you know that vitamin D is used to treat brain, prostate, colon, breast, and immune conditions???
Most people (mainly women) start to consume vitamin D after 45-50yo.
But why? Well, instead of preparing your body to menopause they will overload you with many drugs to try limit the many problems that arise after menopause.
Menopause is for women.
What about men? Benign prostatic hyperplasia is one of the most presenting complain in the urological ward unman over 45.
Treatments have such big impact on a men sexual life that they rather go for surgery.
And guess what? surgery could have many severe complications if not done accordingly, like incontinence and impotence.
But of course for the big pharma and hospitals is better to treat than to prevent, because this way they can make the best money out of it.
Today, here we want you to regularly check your vitamin d levels, and if you turn to be deficient, it is the time to implement it. WHY?
Let me start with this scientific article citation:
1,25(OH)2D (activated vitamin D) decreases the cellular proliferation of both normal cells and cancer cells and induces their terminal differentiation, in addition to being a potent immunomodulator (1.)
What’s simply saying it is that vitamin D can prevent us from developing crazy aggressive pathologies.
It prevents cancer development and auto immune conditions like Hashimotos or Graves.
But why is not that much awareness?
well, again it is more lucrative to treat your disease rather than spending 10 dollars to prevent it.
Let me cite more articles here for you:
Several clinical studies have reported a low vitamin D status in AITD* or HT*, indicating an association between vitamin D deficiency and thyroid autoimmunity (2).
Kivity et al., reported that the prevalence of vitamin D deficiency (25(OH)D level < 25 nmol/L) was significantly higher in 50 patients with AITD compared with 98 healthy individuals (72% vs. 30.6%; p < 0.001) as well as in 28 patients with HT compared to 42 patients with non-AITD (79% vs. 52%; p < 0.05).
Vitamin D deficiency was also found to be correlated with the presence of anti-thyroid antibodies (p = 0.01), suggesting the involvement of vitamin D in the pathogenesis of AITD (3).
*AITD (autoimmune thyroid disease) - HT (Hashimotos)
It means: If you suffer of hypothyroidism or hyperthyroidism GO now and check your levels of vitamin D and start supplementing it if you are deficient and stop once your level normalise, otherwise it is toxic.
Guidelines say you must be between 40-80 ng/ml, but these levels won’t benefit you. You must be at least 70 ng/ml in order for vitamin D to do its job.
What else? you must add vitamin K2 (MK7) to vitamin D so that the calcium released does not stay in your tissues but it is internalised.
You should take at least 6000IU a day and we suggest you this one: https://amzn.to/2NskzGm.
