The Importance of Vitamin D
I hesitated about listing Vitamin D as a cancer ‘killer’ as we tend to test for and place everyone on Vitamin D with K2 (MK7 form only), A, and E. I believe that one should add ALL the fat-soluble vitamins together as they have a synergistic benefit to the body.
When we test for Vitamin D3 levels, I like to see our patients’ blood levels between 60 – 150 nanograms/milliliter even though levels of 20 to 50 ng/mL is considered adequate for healthy people.
Two forms of vitamin D can be measured in the blood, 25-hydroxyvitamin D and 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D. The 25-hydroxyvitamin D is the major form found in the blood and is the relatively inactive precursor to the active hormone, 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D. Because of its long half-life and higher concentration, 25-hydroxyvitamin D is commonly measured to assess and monitor vitamin D status in individuals and is the one I speak of when looking at healthy levels.
The recommended supplements are designed to help those balancing vitamin D with vitamin A, especially in patients who desire extra vitamin D. Balancing levels of vitamin D and vitamin A are crucial, as the body can often become deficient in either one, increasing the risk of health related issues.
