Today, we’re going to take a look at vitamin D. Every cell and tissue in your body has receptors for vitamin D. However, there is still no medical consensus on what vitamin D deficiency is.

Many people are deficient in vitamin D. Vitamin D deficiency can negatively affect your immune function and can cause inflammatory conditions like arthritis, autoimmune disease, depression, and high blood pressure.

Vitamin D toxicity is very rare. Symptoms of vitamin D toxicity mirror the symptoms of vitamin K2 deficiency. This poses the question—do you have too much vitamin D or just not enough vitamin K2?

Vitamin K2 is intricately involved with the transportation of calcium, while vitamin D helps with the absorption of calcium from your gut into your blood. Vitamin K2 keeps calcium out of your soft tissues and strengthens your bones.

A lot of the confusion surrounding the RDA of vitamin D has to do with its measurement—international units. An international unit is an arbitrary number agreed on by some committee, and the amount varies from vitamin to vitamin. For example, one international unit of vitamin E is not the same as one international unit of vitamin A.

Several factors affect the absorption of vitamin D:
•Skin color
•Insulin resistance
•Stress level
•Geographical location
•Gut health
•Liver health
•Gallbladder health or removal

Vitamin D is intimately involved in the immune system and plays a crucial role in the function of Helper T cells. Helper T cells prevent our immune systems from harming our own tissues. If you have issues with your Helper T cells, you could potentially develop an autoimmune disease.

Adequate intake of vitamin K2, magnesium, and zinc helps keep vitamin D active and prevent vitamin D toxicity. Plenty of water is also very important.
