Super D to the Rescue. A Vitamin or Superhero?

Super D to the Rescue. A Vitamin or Superhero?

No, Super D is not the newest rap artist, Super D is vitamin D and it’s one of the hottest topics in medicine right now. This plain ol’ vitamin by day has been turned into a superhero overnight. In fact it has been given a promotion from “vitamin” to “pro-hormone.” Vitamins are great and they work as co-enzymes in hundreds of biochemical reactions in our body but a hormone actually enters cells and strolls right up to the cells DNA and starts shouting orders. Vitamin D is able to turn genes off and on, which is part of what makes it a superstar. For example you may have family history of cancer but if your vitamin D stores are adequate then it can affect your gene expression and impact cell growth, differentiation, and apoptosis (cell death) which may prevent a cancer cell from ever turning into a tumor. On top of that it can affect active cancer cells and by promoting your immune system, aggressively attacks active cancer.

Allow me to back up just a bit to give you the bigger picture. One of the features that makes vitamin D a pro-hormone is the fact that we actually make vitamin D. When ultraviolet B light from the sun touches our skin we convert 7-dehydrocholesterol into cholecalciferol or D3. So yes, that 7-dehydroCHOLESTEROL is made from cholesterol that our liver produces, which is a reminder that not all cholesterol is bad (a topic for another day). We can also eat vitamin D3, which primarily comes from one source, fish, who get it from eating algae which is a plant that like us, makes D3 when exposed to the sun. Now here is where it gets interesting. If we don’t get enough vitamin D3 from our diet or from sun exposure then the little bit we have is used up just trying to manage our calcium absorption and bone development. Without adequate vitamin D stores we can only absorb about 10 to 15% of all the calcium that goes through our digestive tract. So if you are spending your money on calcium supplements to get that ever precious 1200mg of calcium to save your bones then you may be wasting your time if the D3 is not there. But back to my point . . . If your lowly vitamin D stores are occupied just managing the whole ‘bone thing’ then there is not enough to go around and you won’t get all of the other fabulous benefits that D3 has to offer.

Vitamin D acts as an immune modulator and can help balance an overactive immune system which is the real problem behind all of the autoimmune disorders such as rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, type 1 diabetes, multiple sclerosis, and psoriasis. It can even help prevent organ transplant rejection. It aids type 2 diabetes by making the insulin receptors more sensitive. It has been shown to reduce the risk of heart disease by slowing the rate of coronary artery calcification. It is a vital component in soft tissue regeneration and repair of tendon, ligament and cartilage injury. And of course it he...
