Ted Hutchinson has a link in the comments section of my previous post on the side of the Vitamin D Council's website, where Dr. John Cannell discusses metabolic co-factors necessary to correct vitamin D-. In fact, the site's home page highlights how important it is to feel in this area. In this case, "co-factor" means easy, another nutrient, which included for the efficient production and use of vitamin D. 'S all legally required:
- Vitamin K2
- Vitamin A
And probably others that we are unaware. On the other hand , Dr. Cannell links to two documents (critical review of the interaction between magnesium and vitamin D metabolism status 1 , 2 ). Here is a quote from the abstract of the second document:
Magnesium … is for the normal function of the parathyroid glands, the metabolism of vitamin D and adequate sensitivity of target tissues important parathyroid] of the hormone and active vitamin D [metabolites. Magnesium deficiency is usually associated with hypoparathyroidism, low production of metabolites of vitamin D active, particularly 1,25 (OH) 2 vitamin D3 and resistance to PTH and vitamin D. By contrast, magnesium, excess, such as calcium, inhibits the secretion of PTH. Bone metabolism is affected by positive and negative magnesium balance.
state of magnesium is essential for normal vitamin D metabolism, insulin sensitivity and overall health. Magnesium supplementation blocked atherosclerosis in animal models ( 3 , 4 ). Most Americans do not enough magnesium ( 5 ).
The conclusion is that non-nutrients in a vacuum. The effect of each part of your own diet and lifestyle depend on any other party. I speak of individual nutrients in this blog, but my basic philosophy is that a proper diet for Real Food, not nutrients concentrated. Crafts with nutritional supplements is potentially problematic. Despite what some may say, our understanding of nutrition and human health is pretty crude – it's best to get the accumulated wisdom of cultures that do not have these diseases, we try to avoid compliance.
