- Ulcerative Colitis relapse 25 percent more likely if vitamin D level is lower than 35 ng – June 2016
- IBD (Collitis, Crohn’s) was active 6X more often if low vitamin D – June 2015
- Crohn's disease associated with 7.6X deactivation of Vitamin D receptor – July 2015
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

There is now growing evidence suggesting that Vitamin D is playing a critical role in modulating the innate and adaptive immune responses. Several polymorphisms have been identified in the vitamin D receptor (VDR) gene but their association with ulcerative colitis (UC) susceptibility remained controversy. In the current study, we examined the association between VDR polymorphisms and serum level of 25-hydroxyvitamin D [25(OH)D] with UC in Chinese Han population. Polymorphisms of FokI (rs2228570)/BsmI (rs1544410)/ApaI (rs7975232)/TaqI (rs731236) in the VDR gene were assessed in a case-control study comprising 404 UC patients and 612 controls. Moreover, 25(OH)D levels were measured by electro-chemiluminescence immunoassay in 75 UC patients and 120 controls. Our results suggested that BsmI polymorphism frequency was significantly lower in UC patients (P=0.028), and the frequency of AAC haplotype formed by BsmI, ApaI and TaqI was also significantly lower in UC patients (P=0.012).
Moreover, FokI polymorphism was more frequently observed in patients with mild and moderate UC as compared to those with severe UC (P=0.001, P<0.001, respectively). Average 25(OH)D level was lower in UC patients than in controls (19.3±6.8 vs. 21.8±7.3ng/mL, P=0.017), and was significantly correlated with hemoglobin (β=0.49, P<0.001), C-reactive protein (β=-0.36, P<0.001), severity of UC (β=-0.21, P=0.025) and FokI polymorphism (β=-0.20, P=0.031) in UC patients.
Interestingly, there was a significant correlation between FokI polymorphism and vitamin D deficiency (<20ng/mL) in UC patients (P=0.006).
Together, these results supported that VDR polymorphisms and 25(OH)D level were significantly correlated with UC risk and severity in Chinese Han population.
