LIPOSOMAL VITAMIN D3
Medical researchers have been sounding the alarm about the importance of maintaining optimal Vitamin D levels from childhood through to the adult years, but millions of ageing adults remain grossly deficient in this critical hormone-based nutrient. Every cell in the body is now known to have Vitamin D receptors where the nutrient provides an essential key to accurate DNA and cellular replication. Vitamin D works at the genetic level to lower the incidence of mutations and improve cellular replication.
Vitamin D is not actually a vitamin, it was wrongly classified as such but the name never changes. Vitamin D actually is a fat-soluble precursor hormone part of the steroid hormone in your body called calcitriol, that the human body can produce naturally. Calcitriol regulates phosphorus, calcium, and bone metabolism and neuromuscular function in the body. There are multiple forms of Vitamin D, the two most important ones are Vitamin D-2 & Vitamin D-3. Vitamin D3, also known as cholecalciferol, which is made by your skin naturally.
The European Journal of Clinical Nutrition states that increasing your levels of Vitamin D would cut premature death by 21%, and extend your healthy life span by more than two years (and that’s quality, not just quantity).
The important factor when it comes to vitamin D is your serum level, which should ideally be between 50-70 ng/ml year-round, and the only way to determine this is with a blood test. Sun exposure or a safe tanning bed is the preferred method, but a vitamin D3 supplement can be used when necessary. Most adults need about 8,000 IU’s of vitamin D per day to achieve optimal serum levels. If you take supplemental vitamin D, you also need to make sure you’re getting enough vitamin K2, as discussed above. Fermented vegetables can be a great source of vitamin K2 if you ferment your own using the proper starter culture.
