This is something we get asked all the time. People with parathyroid disease often have low Vitamin D levels, and they wonder if they should correct this before surgery. In this video, I explain why the Vitamin D is low in parathyroid disease, and why you should NOT take Vitamin D supplements before your operation.

Low Vitamin D does not cause high calcium. Dr James Norman speaks at endocrinology conference on Vitamin D and low vitamin D. All patients with primary hyperparathyroidism and high calciuim have low vitamin D. See: http://www.parathyroid.com/low-vitamin-d.htm to see these graphs up close. Low vitamin D and calcium levels above 10.1 almost guarantee that a parathyroid tumor is present and parathyroid surgery is needed.

Always seek the advice of a qualified healthcare provider with any questions you may have regarding a medical condition. In the body, most calcium is located in bones, only about 1% is in the blood and extracellular fluid. The amount of calcium in circulation is regulated by 2 hormones: parathyroid hormone, PTH, and calcitriol. When serum calcium level is low, PTH is UPregulated. PTH acts to PROMOTE calcium release from bones and REDUCE calcium loss from urine. At the same time, it stimulates production of calcitriol, which promotes absorption of calcium in the small intestine while also INcreases RE-absorption in the kidney. Together, they bring UP calcium levels back to normal. The REVERSE happens when calcium level is high. This feedback loop keeps serum calcium concentrations within the normal range. HYPOcalcemia refers to ABnormally LOW levels of calcium in the blood and is generally defined as serum calcium level LOWER than 2.1 mmol/L. Because the total serum calcium includes albumin-bound and free-ionized calcium, of which only the LATTER is physiologically active, calcium levels must be corrected to account for albumin changes. For example, DEcreased albumin levels, such as in liver diseases, nephrotic syndrome, or malnutrition, produce LOWER serum calcium values but the amount of FREE calcium may STILL be normal. On the other hand, in conditions with high blood pH, albumin binds MORE calcium; leaving LESS FREE-ionized calcium in the serum while the total calcium level may appear normal. The most common cause of hypocalcemia is PTH deficiency resulting from DEcreased function of the parathyroid glands, or HYPOparathyroidism. HYPOparathyroidism, in turn, may be caused by a variety of diseases and factors. These include: - accidental removal or damage of the parathyroid glands during a surgery - autoimmune disorders - congenital disorders: mutations that set the “normal calcium levels” to a lower value - other genetic disorders that produce underdeveloped or non-functional parathyroid glands - magnesium deficiency Other causes of hypocalcemia include low vitamin D intake/production, and excessive loss of calcium from the circulation such as in kidney diseases, tissue injuries or gastrointestinal diseases. While chronic moderate hypocalcemia may be Asymptomatic, ACUTE and severe hypocalcemia can be life-threatening. Most symptoms of acute hypocalcemia can be attributed to the effect it has on action potential generation in neurons. Because extracellular calcium INHIBITS sodium channels, and consequently DEpolarization, REDUCED calcium level makes it EASIER for depolarization to occur. Hypocalcemia therefore INCREASES neuronal excitability, causing neuromuscular irritability and muscle spasms. Early symptoms often include numbness and tingling sensations around the mouth, in the fingers and toes. As the disease progresses, muscle spasms may manifest as tetany, wheezing, voice change, and dysphagia. Seizures may occur in severe cases. Effects of hypocalcemia on cardiac function include long QT interval due to prolonged ST fragment, congestive heart failure and hypotension. Acute hypocalcemia should be treated promptly with intravenous calcium. Chronic hypocalcemia is usually treated with oral calcium and possibly vitamin D supplementation.

Step by step instructions to Recognize the Symptoms of Vitamin D Deficiency. Glossary: Prohormone: the forerunner to hormones; they really increment the adequacy of existing hormones and are in the long run changed over into hormones themselves. Sterol: a steroid liquor, which is a subgroup of steroids. Cholesterol is a sterol. Vitamin D has been getting a considerable amount of consideration as of late. It's even been nicknamed "the daylight vitamin" in light of the fact that our skin produces it when presented to daylight. Ladies know it as the vitamin that should be taken with calcium with the goal for it to be retained legitimately. Be that as it may, what precisely is Vitamin D? Vitamin D is a prohormone sterol. It has a few unique structures, yet we know it as vitamin D3, or cholecalciferol, which is produced using cholesterol. Another shape is vitamin D2, and is likewise called ergocalciferol, which is produced using ergosterol. Rickets: The History of Vitamin D. In 1913, vitamin A was found in cod liver oil by American specialists Elmer McCollum and Marguerite Davis. A British specialist named Edward Mellanby started giving cod liver oil to pooches and saw that it kept them from creating rickets. In 1921, McCollum adjusted cod liver oil by obliterating the vitamin An, and rehashed Mellanby's examination. He found that the mutts still did not create rickets and presumed that there was another compound in the oil that kept the sickness, which he named vitamin D. In 1923, Harry Steenbock, an American natural chemist at the University of Wisconsin, found that illuminating sustenances and other natural material with bright light expanded the vitamin D content. Steenbock utilized his illumination system on sustenance given to rats and found that it cured them of rickets. In the wake of licensing the development, Steenbock's strategy was utilized to light nourishments, particularly dairy items like drain, which expanded their vitamin D content and basically annihilated rickets. It wasn't until 1936 that the synthetic structure of vitamin D was really separated by Robert Benedict Bourdillon, Otto Rosenheim, Harold King and Kenneth Callow, every one of whom teamed up on the disclosure. What Does Vitamin D Do?. Vitamin D has various advantages. It keeps the beginning of osteoporosis, tumor and even despondency. In discouraged patients, it really fills in as an energizer, easing their indications. It has likewise been utilized as a treatment for different sclerosis, and even asthma. It is most notable as the cure for rickets, which is an illness of youth that makes the bones mollify. This softening can prompt bone cracks and even changeless distortion. The infection is caused by the body's failure to process calcium, or phosphorus, which happens when the body is vitamin D insufficient. Osteomalacia is the grown-up type of rickets. In the liver, vitamin D is changed over into the prohormone calcidiol. As calcidiol goes through the circulatory system, the kidneys or monocyte-macrophages in the insusceptible framework change over calcidiol into calcitriol, which is the naturally dynamic type of vitamin D. Once changed over, it is consumed by target cells, particularly the digestive organs among others. Vitamin D improves the retention of calcium by the digestion tracts, which enables more calcium to be consumed and used. It likewise permits the parathyroid organ, which keeps up blood serum calcium levels, to work legitimately. How Vitamin D Deficiency Affects the Body: Vitamin D inadequacy can cause various distinctive issues. Among the most well-known are osteoporosis, (hypertension), misery, coronary illness, and rickets. A vitamin D lack can likewise build the hazard for: *Multiple sclerosis. *Diabetes. *Breast and ovarian malignancy. *Prostate malignancy. *Skin malignancy. *Colon malignancy. One of the principle reasons vitamin D is vital is on the grounds that it avoids osteoporosis. For a considerable length of time we have been informed that we require more calcium (particularly ladies). To fulfill this necessity we are advised to expend more dairy items, similar to drain. Be that as it may, dairy items may really be causing osteoporosis.

Books on Endocrine disorders - http://amzn.to/2hn9iXu What is Hypopararthyroidism? What is parathyroid hormone? What causes Hypoparathyroidism? Hypoparathyroidism Hypoparathyroidism is an inadequate production of parathormone and is most often related to the removal of the parathyroid glands during thyroid surgery. Parathyroid hormone (PTH) is responsible for the regulation of calcium and phosphorus levels in the blood. Calcium and phosphorus levels must be maintained within normal limits to have adequate nerve function. Bone density is also maintained by parathormone. Signs and symptoms of hypoparathyroidism include the following: Decreased blood calcium Increased blood phosphorus Neuromuscular hyperexcitability Carpopedal spasms (Trousseau’s sign) Positive Chvostek’s sign Urinary frequency Mood changes (depression) Dry, scaly skin and thin hair Cataracts Changes in teeth (cavities) Seizures Changes in EKG (prolonged Q-T intervals and inverted T waves) Management of the client with hypoparathyroidism involves the administration of IV calcium gluconate and long-term use of calcium salts. If calcium gluconate is administered intravenously, the rate should be monitored carefully because rapid administration can result in cardiac arrhythmias. Phosphate binders such as calcium acetate (Phoslo) can be used to bind with phosphates. This will result in a rise in the calcium level. Vitamin D supplements can be given to increase the absorption of calcium preparations as well as calcium in the diet.

Dr. Ebraheim’s educational animated video explains about the Importance of vitamin D for bone health. Vitamin D is an essential vitamin needed for normal calcium and phosphate homeostasis. Unfortunately, over 100 million Americans including children have a vitamin D deficiency. Vitamin D is important for proper maturation and development of bone. The importance of vitamin D is also discussed in immunity, cancer and other conditions. Some people claim vitamin D to be a miracle hormone. vitamin D is essential for strong bones, because it helps the body use calcium from the diet. The man action of vitamin D is absorption of calcium and phosphate from the intestine. Where does vitamin D come from? vitamin D comes from diet and exposure to the sun. vitamin D is naturally found in fish. Both vitamin D from diet and converted by sunlight are not biologically active and needs to be activated before achieving all of its functions. What foods are rich in vitamin D? 1-cod liver oil, best source but it tastes bad. 2-Fish such as salmon, tuna, swordfish, and oysters (need to eat a lot to meet the required amount) 3-Ham, salami, sausages 4-Fortified cereals 5-Mushrooms 6-Eggs 7-Dairy products such as milk and cheese (not a lot of vitamin D) 8-Supplements •Cod liver oil (3.5 oz): 8500 international units (very good source) •Raw herring (3.5 oz ): 900 international units •Salmon (3.5 oz) : 600 international units •Multivitamin: 400 international units •Milk ( 1cup): 100 international units (not a very good source) How about the sun? known as the sunshine vitamin, vitamin D is produced by the body in response to skin exposed to sunlight. Cholesterol derived precursor ( pro-vitamin D3) is formed in the liver and stored in the skin. Provitamin D is activated by ultraviolet light yet it still requires more steps for activation. 10-15 minutes per day is enough exposure for light skinned individuals and darker skinned people need more exposure. If you are in the sun for 15 minutes, you may get about 10,000 units of vitamin D. How does metabolic activation occur? Metabolic activation occurs by adding two hydroxyl groups. One is at he carbon 25 in the liver and one at the carbon 1 in the kidney. Hydroxylation to 25 vitamin D3 occurs in the liver. The big organ takes the big number-25 25 (OH)- vitamin D3. Another hydroxylation occurs in the kidneys. The small organ takes the small number -1. The result will be 1,25 (OH)2- vitamin D3. This is the active form vitamin D and works mainly on the intestines and bones. Activation of vitamin D is controlled by the PTH hormone (Parathyroid hormone) any problem with this activation process of vitamin D will lead to deficiency due to an insufficient diet, lack of sun exposure, liver or kidney disease. Dilantin impairs the metabolism of vitamin D in the liver. Once the vitamin D is activated in the kidneys, it is then carried by a carrier with vitamin D binding protein to its target tissue. The target cells have receptors and vitamin D is bound to these receptors which lead to conformational changes in the nucleus. The receptors are found in the intestines, the bones and maybe the kidneys. The primary function of vitamin D is absorption of calcium and phosphates from the intestines. vitamin D influences activity of the cells that remodel and build the bone. 1,25 dihydroxy vitamin D stimulates RANKL expression. RANKL (ligand) is secreted by osteoblasts and binds to the RANK receptor on osteoclast precursor and mature osteoclast cells. Osteoclast activation stimulates bone reabsorption. In the kidneys, vitamin D helps in regulation of calcium absorption in the tubules. The parathyroid glands are on the back side of the thyroid gland. Elevated vitamin D decreases the formation of parathyroid hormone. Parathyroid hormone stimulates the conversion of 25 vitamin D3 to 1,25 hydroxyvitamin D in the proximal tubules of the kidneys by stimulating 1 alpha hydroxylase enzymes. Receptors are also found in the cardiovascular and immune systems. What are the stimuli for the release of 1,25 vitamin D? •Low serum calcium concentration •Low serum phosphate concentration •Elevated PTH levels. What are the factors that inhibit the production of vitamin D3? •Decreased parathyroid hormones •Elevated serum calcium and elevated serum phosphate. What are the net effects of vitamin D on plasma calcium and phosphate concentration •Increased plasma calcium •Increased plasma phosphate. There are three types of rickets related to vitamin D: •Vitamin D deficient •Vitamin D dependent •Vitamin D resistant.

In this video I have explained the activation of vitamin D in the liver and kidney by hydroxylation process. Regulation of active vitamin D3 by PTH (parathyroid hormone), 24-hydroxylase and active vitamin D itself. Main function of vitamin D is to regulate calcium and phosphate levels in the blood. Other functions of vitamin D have been revealed by recent research like its role in preventing tumor formation, immune mechanism, insulin sensitivity.

We hear all about this all the time, but is it really true? Does wimpy old vitamin D NEED Vitamin K? http://www.ThomasDeLauer.com Do you need vitamin k with vitamin d? Vitamin D A hormone, not an actual vitamin, that your skin makes when exposed to sunlight, so it does not need to acquire it from food if adequate sunlight is available The only natural foods that contain vitamin D are fish and egg yolks Most of us are deficient in vitamin D as we do not spend much time outdoors. Additionally, where we live can limit our access to vitamin D - if you live below 37 degrees south or above 37 degrees north you do not have access to sufficient sunlight except during the summer months. ( This line of latitude crosses below Colorado, Utah and Kansas, so the majority of us in the US require additional dietary vitamin D throughout the year even if we spend time outdoors Sunscreen and skin pigmentation can also act as barriers to vitamin D absorption What Does Vitamin D Do? Reduces belly fat Of all the places to lose fat, the middle of our bodies is usually the hardest and the most important, both for looking lean and for being healthy. Waist-to-hip ratio is a factor in your risk for heart disease and type 2 diabetes Research bomb: A study published in the journal of Clinical Nutrition had 23 overweight participants who all went through a 12-week resistance training program. Half of them took 4,000 IU’s of vitamin D while the others received a placebo. While both groups lost the same amount of fat, the group that took the vitamin D supplements were more likely to have lowered their waist-to-hip ratio to a greater extent when compared to the placebo group. (3) Hormone Regulation and Bone Health The parathyroid glands, located in your neck, release parathyroid hormone. Parathyroid hormone regulates the calcium in your body: When the level of calcium in your blood is low, your parathyroid releases PTH. PTH signals for calcium to be leeched from bones and released into the blood, while also telling your kidneys to create more bioavailable vitamin D. This form of active vitamin D tells your gut to absorb more calcium, as long as you have sufficient vitamin D available. When you are deficient in vitamin D, your body will not absorb enough calcium from your diet and too much calcium will be taken from the bones to be available in the blood. Calcium plays more roles than just bone health - it is crucial for proper functioning of your nervous and muscular systems, so the body is able to take calcium from the bones to perform other functions. Vitamin K Vitamin K is helpful in blood clotting and bone strength. May also help to prevent heart disease, prostate cancer and Alzheimer’s Vitamin K2 and vitamin D3 work together to strengthen bones through their impact on calcium While vitamin D3 essentially regulates how much calcium is absorbed in the diet, vitamin K2 tells the calcium where to go, directing it to bones rather than soft tissues. When calcium attaches to arteries, known as hardening of the arteries, it can lead to cardiovascular complications. Without vitamin K2, the calcium absorbed will not go towards strengthening your bones, and thus vitamin K2 is crucial in the functioning of vitamin D3. Vitamin K2 comes from meats, eggs, hard cheeses and insects. Many people are also deficient in vitamin K2. Diet and Supplementation The best way to stay healthy is to eat a balanced diet full of leafy greens, fruits, veggies and lean proteins. This is how we can be sure we are obtaining a full range of vitamins and minerals. Vitamin D3 is one vitamin/hormone that we often have to supplement. If your supplement vitamin D3, be sure to obtain enough vitamin K2, either through a diet with meats and eggs, or through supplementation as well. Also be sure to obtain calcium through your diet, such as yogurt, leafy greens and legumes, or through supplementation. If you do not have all three in your diet, you may be doing more harm than good. References: 1.

Hyperparathyroidism nursing review lecture of hyperparathyroidism symptoms, pathophysiology, causes, and nursing interventions. Hyperparathyroid is the excessive production of parathyroid hormone by the parathyroid gland. This parathyroid disorder leads to hypercalcemia and hypophosphatemia. Signs and symptoms of hyperparathyroidism include bone fractures, renal calcui, constipation, excessive urination, nausea, vomiting, epi-gastric pain, EKG changes (shorten QT interval) and lab values that reflect hypercalcemia and hypophosphatemia. Causes of this parathyroidism include primary hyperparathyroidism and secondary hyperparathyroidism. Primary hyperparathyroidism is caused by a malfunctioning parathyroid due to an adenoma, hyperplasia, or cancer. Secondary hyperparathyroidism is caused by a disease that affects the function of the parathyroid such as chronic kidney disease, hypocalcemia, and vitamin-d deficiency. Nursing interventions include monitoring vitals, straining urine for possible renal calcui, monitoring EKG, and administering medications as prescribed by the doctor. The goals of medication treatment in hyperparathyroidism are to decrease the calcium and PTH levels, and maintain hydration.

This is a brief overview of how Vitamin D is synthesised in the body, how it acts on the vitamin D receptor and what effects it has on the body. Vitamin D can be made in the skin when it's exposed to sunlight. First cholesterol is turned into 7 dehydrocholesterol by an enzyme called dhcr7. UVB radiation from the sun, then turns this into previtamin D, which spontaneously transforms into vitamin D at body temperature. This actually means that because Vitamin D can be made by the body, it's technically not a vitamin, since a vitamin by definition is something that can't be made by the body. There are 5 forms of vitamin D found in nature, but the body only makes one, Vitamin D3, also called cholecalciferol. Even when vitamin D has been synthesised from cholesterol, it is still not active, and there are two more steps needed until it becomes active. The first step is the conversion to calcidiol, which happens in the liver. Calcidiol is then converted to calcitriol which is the active form of vitamin D. This step happens primarily in the kidney and is controlled by parathyroid hormone, calcium and phosophate concentrations in the blood, and the concentration of calcitriol in the blood. Now that our vitamin D is finally active it circulates in the blood and acts like a hormone. When it reaches the cell, it binds to the vitamin D receptor also called the calcitriol receptor. This whole thing then forms a big complex with the retinoid X receptor, or RXR receptor. Finally the RXR receptor needs to be bound by Vitamin A, making a big structure composed of calcitriol, the vitamin D receptor, the RXR receptor and vitamin A. This complex won't be active until Vitamin A is present, which effectively means that Vitamin D is useless unless Vitamin A is also available in the cell. When activated, this complex binds specific areas of DNA and increases transcription of some dna and decreases transcription of other dna. functions of vitamin D Probably the most famous role of vitamin D is to increase the level of calcium in the blood. it does this by Promoting absorption of calcium from the gastrointestinal tract, meaning that we get more calcium from the food that we eat Reducing the amount of calcium that is lost in the urine, by Increasing reabsorption in the kidneys stimulating calcium release from bone by activating osteoclast cells Vitamin D also has effects on the parathyroid gland. It acts to stop parathyroid cells from proliferating too much. when the parathyroid gland becomes vitamin D deficient, it starts to grow to a bigger size than it is meant to and secretes too much parathyroid hormone, resulting in hyperparathyroidism. Vitamin D stops parathyroid cells from proliferating too much Vitamin D also has a role in the immune system with vitamin D deficiency and excess both having negative effects. Macrophages, dendritic cells, B cells and T cells can respond to and synthesise calcitriol. Earlier I said that the conversion of calcidiol to calcitriol happens primarily in the kidney but another place that this can happen is in immune cells. Vitamin D can also lead to the production of antibacterial peptides such as cathelicidin and beta defensin 4. These work by disrupting the cell membranes of bacteria, causing them to die. Summary So, in summary, the skin produces vitamin D from cholesterol when exposed to UVB sunlight. Vitamin D is converted to Calcitriol and is then active The most well known role of calcitriol is in calcium metabolism, but it has many other effects, such as in the immune system and on the parathyroid gland Future videos are going to look the roles of vitamin D in more detail, the amount of vitamin D that humans need and how the recommended daily allowance has been determined, the studies that have been done on vitamin D supplementation, what happens in deficiency and excess, and how prevalent vitamin D deficiency is.

Dr. Ebraheim’s educational animated video describes different vitamins. Vitamin D and PTH (parathyroid hormone) are important for calcium hemostasis. Vitamin D is important for proper maturation and development of the bone. Vitamin D is naturally found in Tuna, Salmon and Cod liver oil. Vitamin D and K are not present in sufficient quantity in breast milk. Production in the body: Precursor for vitamin D is found in the skin. Cholesterol derived precursor (pro-vitamin D3) is formed in the liver and stored in the skin. UV light converts it to pre-vitamin D3. The liver will then convert it to 25 hydroxyvitamin D3. Then the kidney will convert it to 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D3, which is the active form of vitamin D3. PTH regulates the active form of vitamin D3. Active vitamin D3 stimulates the absorption of calcium and phosphate from the intestine. Low vitamin D levels lead to rickets. Low vitamin D rickets is the most common form of rickets worldwide. In adults, it leads to osteomalacia. Looser zones are stress fractures in patients with osteomalacia. Darker skin individuals should have more sun exposure. Vitamin D resistant rickets: the most common form of rickets in the United States. Also known as familial hypophosphatemic rickets. It is an X-linked inherited disease (dominant). The defective mineralization of bone in osteomalacia leads to a qualitative defect of bone with a high amount of unmineralized osteoid matrix. Osteoporosis, on the other hand, is a quantitative defect of bone. Vitamin D deficiency is considered when blood levels of 25 hydroxyvitamin D3 fall below 20 ng/ml. vitamin D levels are usually found to be low in patients with low energy fractures. Vitamin D deficiency is found in the majority of patients with endocrine or metabolic problems presenting with fracture non-unions. Dilantin (phenytoin) inhibits vitamin D formation in the liver. Decreased exposure to sun light and decreased intake of vitamin D are risk factors for developing Multiple Sclerosis. Recent research has also demonstrated a link between low vitamin D and vitamin B12 levels and the development of Alzheimer’s disease. Daily requirements of vitamin D are 400-800 international units. Vitamin D and calcium are given for female athletic triad. Vitamin E Vitamin E affects peripheral nerves and is a major antioxidant as it stabilizes free radicals and reduces the potential for oxidative damage. Vitamin E prevents peroxidation of fatty acids in cell membranes, helping to maintain their normal fluidity. Vitamin E also has some enzymatic activity. Deficiency of Vitamin E can lead to hemolysis, neurological problems, and retinitis pigmentosa. Vitamin E is found in milk, nuts, corn oil, sunflower oil, avocados, asparagus, and broccoli. Vitamin K Vitamin K is needed to introduce calcium binding sites on Vitamin K dependent clotting factors in order to activate them. Without Vitamin K the blood will not clot. This process is called gamma-carboxylation of glutamic acid. Vitamin K dependent factors are 1972 (factors: 10, 9, 7, 2,). Vitamin K is found in green leafy vegetables. Causes of Vitamin K deficiency include fat malabsorption, prolonged use of broad-spectrum antibiotics, breast-fed newborns, and infants of mothers taking Phenytoin (Dilantin). How to differentiate between Vitamin K and Vitamin C deficiencies? Vitamin K deficiency: easy bruising and bleeding, normal bleeding time and increased prothrombin time, no connective tissue problems. Vitamin C deficiency: easy bruising and bleeding, prolonged bleeding time and normal prothrombin time. Vitamin C deficiency patients have skeletal deformities, gum hyperplasia and bleeding, and poor wound healing. Coumadin is a vitamin K antagonist. Coumadin affects vitamin K metabolism in the liver, leading to the inhibition of vitamin K dependent clotting factors (1972). The therapeutic target level for Coumadin is an INR of 2-3. It takes 3 days to reach that therapeutic level and takes another 3 days to reverse it by vitamin K. fresh frozen plasma would act immediately. Protamine sulfate and fresh frozen plasma would work immediately in the case of heparin.

It doesn't really exist. But, what I'm finding through a lot of research recently is that Vitamin D3 might be as close as we can get to something that can reduce belly fat as anything that's out there. Let me explain how this works because honestly it's pretty fascinating. What Vitamin D is, first and foremost is a fat soluble Vitamin. It's a fat soluble Vitamin that helps regulate mood, it can help regulate metabolism and most importantly it regulates where calcium goes in the body. But, because it's fat soluble it means that it's stored in the fat cell. Start thinking about this: if you have an excess amount of fat or if you're overweight that means that most of the Vitamin D that you consume, even if you're taking a supplement, is going to get sequestered into those fat cells and it's going to stay there meaning you have less bio actively available Vitamin D3 to do the cool things that I'm about to explain. Let's talk about how Vitamin D3 actually burns fat. The first method is by increasing something called Leptin. Have you ever eaten food before and gotten full? If you haven't you're probably not human. Honestly, what happens is leptin signals your brain that you're full. When you eat a lot of food you have the production of Leptin, signals your brain that you're full and you stop eating. Problem is that without Vitamin D3, Leptin levels don't generally increase that much. If you have enough D3 your brain can signal and your brain can be told you need to stop eating. It's that simple. Low levels of Vitamin D3 those Leptin levels don't get too high and you can keep eating, making it very easy to overeat. Remember what I said about the Vitamin D3 getting stored in fat cells? Think about this, if you already are low in D3 and then you eat and you don't have enough Leptin so you keep eating more then you're going to develop more fat cells, which means you're going to hold onto more Vitamin D in the fat cells and more and more to the point where you have this snowball effect where you continue to store fat. Are you one of those people that have just looked in the mirror and say how did this happen to me? Honestly, I was one of those people seven or eight years ago. The other way that Vitamin D3 is proving to potentially be a good belly fat burner is through the modulation of the parathyroid and calcitriol hormones. The Parathyroid is a small set of glands around the thyroid in our throat and basically when they produce parathyroid or they produce calcitriol, we have a rapid increase in how our body stores fat. It tends to want to store it more. If we have enough Vitamin D3 the parathyroid and calcitriol hormones aren't quite as crazy. They're not going quite as haywire, which means your body slowly stores and slowly metabolizes fat versus doing it rapidly, making it where you look in the mirror and feel like it happened overnight. Those are the two main reasons that Vitamin D3 is starting to play a big role in belly fat. This wouldn't be a traditional video of mine if I didn't at least reference one peer reviewed, double blind placebo study. One study took 218 women. These 218 women they gave a strict diet and exercise program to and they asked them to follow it for a year. Then they took half of these women and they gave them Vitamin D. The other half of the women they gave a placebo. After one year of time, it was found that the women that took the Vitamin D had on average seven pounds more weight loss than those that didn't take the Vitamin D. It doesn't sound like much but just by adding Vitamin D it's pretty dang interesting. Then, there's one other study. There is another study that found that those that were taking Vitamin D3 had a better waist to hip ration than those that were not.

Hi Friends, Watch ► Vitamin D Capsules For Cure Diabetes | Vitamin D And Cure Diabetes : https://goo.gl/UnZvu8 Vitamin D is believed to help improve the body's sensitivity to insulin – the hormone responsible for regulating blood sugar levels – and thus reduce the risk of insulin resistance, which is often a precursor to type 2 diabetes. ... *Note; the correct level of vitamin D varies from person to person Can vitamin D reduce blood sugar? What vitamins help regulate blood sugar? What vitamins are good for type 2 diabetes? Can vitamin D prevent diabetes? Vitamin D Therapy for Diabetes ````````````````````````````````````````````` The signs of Vitamin D deficiency can range from bone pain and muscle weakness to depression and weakened immune system, while longer-term deficiency can result in obesity, high blood pressure, psoriasis, osteoporosis, chronic fatigue, Alzheimer’s disease, cancer and type 2 diabetes. However, most of the Western countries are deficient in Vitamin D, including many patients with Type 2 diabetes, due to limited sunlight exposure caused by a number of factors, including more time spent at home, in the office or the car, shorter days in winter, sunscreen use in summer and fears of skin cancer. Vitamin D therapy may help in the treatment of diabetes, according to the findings of a new study that was published in the Cell journal. Vitamin D, which is sometimes referred to as the sunshine vitamin, provides various health benefits such as protecting you from colds and flu. However, the latest research shows that vitamin D may also help in the fight against diabetes. Researchers from the Salk Institute wrote in the published study that one of the primary causes in the progression of type 2 diabetes is the dysfunction of beta cells in the pancreas. When these beta cells stop working, the body becomes unable to create insulin to control a person's blood sugar, allowing glucose levels to increase to dangerous levels. However, the scientists discovered that vitamin D therapy is capable of treating the damaged beta cells. Using beta cells that were created from embryonic stem cells, the researchers identified a compound named iBRD9 that worked with vitamin D to help the recovery of the beta cells. In tests on a mouse model of diabetes, the vitamin D therapy brought glucose back to normal levels in the animal subjects. The combination of the compound with vitamin D triggered the anti-inflammatory function of the beta cells' genes, helping them survive. The researchers said that no side effects were observed on the mice that received the compound. However, further testing is required before clinical trials on humans can begin. Vitamin D has previously been linked with diabetes when epidemiologists found that the lack of vitamin D gave healthy people a higher risk for diabetes. Vitamin D, which received its name as the sunshine vitamin because it is created in our skin when exposed to direct sunlight, also helps keep our bones healthy and aids in calcium and phosphorus absorption. As well as assisting glycemic control, increasing your levels of vitamin D can also helps to: Aid weight loss – studies have shown that good vitamin D status helps to reduce parathyroid hormone (PTH) levels, which in the long-term may promote weight loss and reduce risk of obesity, which is a major risk factor for type 2 diabetes. Regulate appetite – vitamin D can increase your body’s levels of the hormone leptin, which controls body fat storage and triggers the sensation of satiety, giving the feeling of having eaten enough and thus lowering hunger levels. Reduce belly fat - an increase in vitamin D can help lower levels of cortisol, a stress hormone produced in the adrenal glands. Cortisol is involved in a number of important functions, including the body's response to stress and regulation of blood pressure. But higher and more prolonged levels of the hormone in the blood can lead to increased abdominal fat, which is linked to various health conditions including diabetes type 2.

But what if I told you that part of the solution very well could be our relationship with vitamin D, what we're getting from the sun. And not necessarily just the vitamin D that we're getting from the sun, but the vitamin D that we're getting from our food and potentially from our supplementation. I'm going to dive into the details of how that connection actually takes place. According to the National Library of Medicine we found that about 40-50% of Americans are already deficient in vitamin D. When you start thinking that vitamin D might be linked with mood disorders, well, then it's pretty evident that we need to be paying attention to it. Now the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics found that the link between vitamin D and our mood lies within the neurotransmitter serotonin. Now that serotonin neurotransmitter is what's responsible for us having a sense of well being. For us feeling calm, cool, and collected. Quite the opposite of feeling anxious or potentially depressed. Well, I'm going to get into the intricate details of it in just a minute, so you understand how serotonin works and so that you can make the connection. But what we have to remember first and foremost, is that a lot of these ties are still widely unknown. This is a pretty new topic, pretty new investigations when it comes down to vitamin D and the brain. Let's take a look at serotonin really quick. Okay? It's the job of serotonin, again, to help us feel good. The process of actually creating serotonin in the body is pretty interesting. You see, it comes down to something called trip to fan. What trip to fan is, is an amino acid. Those amino acids are usually derive from proteins that we consume. When we consume those proteins we generally require carbohydrates to allow the trip to fan to enter into the brain. Well, what researchers are now finding is that vitamin D could be a very critical component in that conversion process. Essentially, eat protein, get the trip to fan, have it go into the brain with the help of carbohydrates and then vitamin D comes in and assists in the metabolism and the creation of serotonin. Right at the very root of creating this neurotransmitter that helps us feel good. Now researchers are continuing to back up the fact that everything seems to be lying in what are called monoamines. Monoamines are a group of neurotransmitters including serotonin, dopamine, and norepinephrine. All three neurotransmitters that truly regulate how the brain operates when it comes to feeling good. Again, if we see that link between vitamin D and the creation of these monoamines you can get the hint that well, it might be pretty critical to overall feeling well. There's one study in particular that I really want to reference because it backs a lot of this up and it was done by Oregon State University. What it looked at was a 185 female participants that were all college students, okay, between the ages of 18 and 25. What they did is they initially measured their vitamin D levels. They found naturally that a lot of them were already deficient in vitamin D. But what they did is they monitored these women for an extended period of time. They monitored them over the winter time, over the spring, over the summer, and they watched their vitamin D levels fluctuate. Of course, naturally, in the winter time vitamin D levels were significantly lower. References 1) Can Vitamin D Improve Mood? | Healthy Eating | SF Gate. (n.d.).
