- Prebiotic oligofructose-enriched inulin (Synergy 1) with a Gulten Free Diet increased Vitamin D levels by 42%
- "celiac disease" OR CD 2030 items Jan 2019
- Celiac disease 5.4 times more likely in Northern vs Southern states (vitamin D) – Feb 2017
- Gut bacteria of Crohn's disease patients improved by Vitamin D – March 2018
- Increased Vitamin D not only helps the body, but helps the gut bacteria (perhaps as well as prebiotic)
Items in both categories Children and Gut are listed here:
- Children with Celiac Disease were 2.6X more-likely to be vitamin D deficient – Sept 2020
- Prebiotics increased Vitamin D in celiac disease patients (gut-friendly Vit. D also helps) – RCT Nov 2018
- IBD in children might be associated with low sun exposure – Aug 2018
- Inflammatory Bowel Disease in children is associated with low Vitamin D, Iron (also low Zinc for Crohn’s) – Aug 2018
- Crohn's disease in black children is worse in 6 ways – Dec 2015
- Obese children with celiac disease had lower levels of vitamin D – April 2012
Overview Gut and vitamin D contains gut-friendly information
Getting Vitamin D into your body has the following chart
Getting Vitamin D into your body also has the following
Bio-D-Mulsion Forte – especially made for those with poorly functioning guts, or perhaps lacking gallbladder
Sublingual – goes directly into bloodstream
you can make your own sublinqual by dissovling Vitamin D in water or using nanoemulsion form
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 useful – it 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
Poor guts need different forms of vitamin D has the following
Guesses of Vitamin D response if poor gut
or Calcidiol or Calcitriol
|D - Slow|
(skin patch/cream, vagina)
perhaps activates VDR

Prebiotics have been shown to improve absorption of some nutrients, including vitamins. This pilot study evaluated the effect of the prebiotic oligofructose-enriched inulin (Synergy 1) on fat-soluble vitamins status, parathormone, and calcium-related elements in pediatric celiac disease (CD) patients (n = 34) on a strict gluten-free diet (GFD). Participants were randomized into a group receiving 10 g of Synergy 1 or placebo (maltodextrin) together with a GFD. At baseline and after 3 months of intervention, 25-hydroxyvitamin D [25(OH)D], parathormone, vitamin E and A, calcium, phosphate, magnesium, total protein, and albumin were determined. Concentration of 25(OH)D increased significantly (p < 0.05) by 42% in CD patients receiving Synergy 1 in GFD, whereas no change was observed in placebo. Vitamin D status reached an optimal level in 46% of patients receiving Synergy 1. No significant difference in parathormone, calcium, and phosphate levels was observed. Concentration of vitamin E increased significantly (p < 0.05) by 19% in patients receiving Synergy 1, but not in the placebo. Vitamin A levels were not changed.
Supplementation of GFD with Synergy 1 improved vitamin D and vitamin E status in children and adolescents with CD and could be considered a novel complementary method of management of fat-soluble vitamins deficiency in pediatric CD patients.
