Vitamin D Deficiency, Professor Haney, Creighton University discussed on Tom Maoli's Go Big or Go Home Show

Automatic TRANSCRIPT

Smoking high blood pressure, high triglycerides, diabetes, all the things known to contribute, even after they control for that. There was a strong effect of vitamin day. And it was integrated manner that is if you're really deficient than your risk is much higher. If you're a little deficient than your risk is a little higher, and we don't have enough studies yet to. Say that, you know, if you have heart disease, you should take vitamin day, although many cardiologists prescribing it just on the basis of why not so the way these doctors are thinking is look what's the risk versus what's the benefit. It looks like from the studies. There's a tremendous risk associated with vitamin d deficiency. We don't have all the studies we need and we're doing those studies now, but it would be unethical to let people remain vitamin d deficient. While we're conducting all the studies we need to about heart health or bone health, breast held or prostate health or immune system. It would be unethical to let them wait vitamin d deficient. The problem is that many doctors use antiquated reference ranges, and so if you're levels thirty five they'll tell you. That's okay. It's not okay. Level needs to be fifty or higher and to get that adults need five thousand units today again for those just tune in. I mentioned earlier, you know, I go through the health food store look at multivitamins most of them at best. Have four hundred I use. But when you're looking at the the vitamin d that you can buy by itself as a standalone vitamin most of four hundred I use I saw a couple that were thousand tablets, but again that falls far short of that five thousand number, and that's what you get with purity here. Why's that? So important there's recently been studied by professor Haney at Creighton university that shows that when you get your level to fifty your body has enough for all the things that needs to do. And it begins the store a little bit of the vitamin d. So if your level is less than fifty your body is basically using up all the vitamin d as fast as you take it for all the things that need to think of vitamin d as a mountain spring with a pool at the top, right? The pool we've always known about is calcium in bone and we've taken enough item in data halfway fill up that calcium in bone pool. But all the other pools below the breast pool the colon pull the immune system pool. All the other. Goals that are blow. It have been basically dry since we've been out of the sun. If you take five thousand units of vitamin d the upper pool overflows and starts filling in all the pools that the bottom teeth and gum, the mood, the cognition..
