Overview Gut and vitamin D has the following summary

  • Gut problems result in reduced absorption of Vitamin D, Magnesium, etc.
  • Celiac disease has a strong genetic component.
    • Most, but not all, people with celiac disease have a gene variant.
    • An adequate level vitamin D seems to decrease the probability of getting celiac disease.
    • Celiac disease causes poor absorption of nutrients such as vitamin D.
    • Bringing the blood level of vitamin D back to normal in patients with celiac disease decreases symptoms.
    • The prevalence of celiac disease, not just its diagnosis, has increased 4X in the past 30 years, similar to the increase in Vitamin D deficiency.
  • Review in Nov 2013 found that Vitamin D helped
  • Many intervention clinical trials for vitamin D to prevent or treat Gut problems (93 trials listed as of Jan 2017)
  • All items in category gut and vitamin D 122 items

Gut category listing contains the following

122 items in GUT category - see also Overview Gut and vitamin D,

Overview Gut and vitamin D contains gut-friendly information

Gut-friendly, Sublingual, injection, topical, UV, sunshine

Getting Vitamin D into your body has the following chart

Getting Vitamin D into your body also has the following

If poorly functioning gut

Bio-D-Mulsion Forte – especially made for those with poorly functioning guts, or perhaps lacking gallbladder
Sublingual – goes directly into bloodstream
Oil: 1 drop typically contains 400 IU, 1,000 IU, or 4,000 IU, typically not taste good
Topical – goes directly into bloodstream. Put oil on your skin, Use Aloe vera cream with Vitamin D, or make your own
Vaginal – goes directly into bloodstream. Prescription only?
Bio-Tech might be usefulit is also water soluble
Vitamin D sprayed inside cheeks 2X more response (poor gut) – RCT Oct 2015
    and, those people with malabsorption problems had a larger response to spray
Inject Vitamin D quarterly into muscle, into vein, or perhaps into body cavity if quickly needed
Nanoparticles could be used to increase vitamin D getting to the gut – Oct 2015
Liposomal form on Amazon - Dec 2015
   $20 for 60 servings of 2500 IU - unsure why a very low-cost gut-friendly form should not be used instead
Poor guts need different forms of vitamin D has the following

OBJECTIVE
Dysbiosis is a common feature in the pathogenesis of inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD). Environmental factors, such as vitamin D deficiency, seem to play a role in the intestinal inflammation of IBD. The aim of this study was to investigate whether vitamin D administration has an impact on the bacterial composition in Crohn's disease (CD) compared to healthy controls (HC).

METHODS
A prospective, longitudinal, controlled interventional analysis was conducted in seven patients with CD in clinical remission and 10 HC to investigate the effect of orally administrated vitamin D on the intestinal bacterial composition using 16S ribosomal RNA gene amplicon sequencing. Clinical parameters were assessed.

RESULTS
In contrast to HC, microbial communities of CD patients changed significantly during early vitamin D administration. However, a further increase in vitamin D level was associated with a reversal of this effect and additionally with a decrease in the bacterial richness in the CD microbiome. Specific species with a high abundancy were found during vitamin D administration in CD, but not in HC; the abundancy of Alistipes, Barnesiella, unclassified Porphyromonadaceae (both Actinobacteria), Roseburia, Anaerotruncus, Subdoligranulum and an unclassified Ruminococaceae (all Firmicutes) increased significantly after 1‐week vitamin D administration in CD.

CONCLUSIONS
Vitamin D has a specific influence on the bacterial communities in CD, but not in HC. Administration of vitamin D may have a positive effect in CD by modulating the intestinal bacterial composition and also by increasing the abundance of potential beneficial bacterial strains.
