Vitamin D Receptor category has the following
Vitamin D tests cannot detect Vitamin D Receptor (VDR) problems
A poor VDR restricts Vitamin D from getting in the cells
It appears that 30% of the population has a poor VDR (40% of the Obese )
VDR at-home test $29 - results not easily understood in 2016
There are hints that you may have inherited a poor VDR
Compensate for poor VDR by increasing one or more:
|1) Vitamin D supplement|
Sun, Ultraviolet -B
| Vitamin D in the blood |
and thus in the cells
|2) Magnesium||Vitamin D in the blood |
AND in the cells
|3) Omega-3||Vitamin D in the cells|
|4) Resveratrol||Vitamin D Receptor|
|5) Intense exercise||Vitamin D Receptor|
|6) Get prescription for VDR activator|
|Vitamin D Receptor|
|7) Quercetin (flavonoid)||Vitamin D Receptor|
|8) Zinc is in the VDR||Vitamin D Receptor|
|9) Boron||Vitamin D Receptor ?, |
|10) Essential oils e.g. ginger, curcumin||Vitamin D Receptor|
|11) Progesterone||Vitamin D Receptor|
|12) Infrequent high concentration Vitamin D|
Increases the concentration gradient
|Vitamin D in the cells|
Note: If you are not feeling enough benefit from Vitamin D, you might try increasing VDR activation. You might feel the benefit within days of adding one or more of the above
Far healthier and stronger at age 72 due to supplements Includes 6 supplements which help the VDR
If poor Vitamin D Receptor
Vitamin D is a potential protective agent against cancer, and its activity is mediated mainly by vitamin D receptor (VDR). The FokI polymorphism (rs10735810) represents a T-to-C transition (ATG to ACG) in exon 2 of the VDR gene, and this ATG represents the translation-initiation codon, encoded by the f allele. The FokI polymorphism results in the generation of a protein shortened by three amino acids, translated from the downstream ATG codon (the F allele). We investigated the relationship between the FokI polymorphism and gastric cancer in a Chinese Han population. A total of 187 patients and 212 healthy controls were enrolled. The FokI polymorphism was detected by polymerase chain reaction restriction fragment length polymorphism (PCR-RFLP) analysis. The f allele frequency was higher in patients than that in controls (51.6% and 43.6%, P < 0.05). Multivariate logistics regression analysis revealed patients with the f allele (Ff + ff) showed a higher risk of gastric cancer [odds ratio (95% confidence interval) 2.73 (1.13~4.32)]. Patients with the f allele (Ff + ff) also presented a poorly differentiated type of gastric cancer (P < 0.05) and higher levels of C-reactive protein on admission than the FF group (5.5 ± 2.4 mg/L vs. 3.4 ± 1.3 mg/L, P < 0.05).
Here, we show an association between the VDR FokI polymorphism and the susceptibility to gastric cancer, which may be helpful for early detection of high-risk individuals with the f allele for gastric cancer. Conversely, the F allele may be a protective factor against gastric cancer.
