Cents
per day
Calcium <750mg Yes Is excess calcium harmful to health - 2010 0* = None: get from healthy food 0 ¢
Magnesium 100mg (element) YesMay increase response to Vitamin D by 30%
Many other health benefits as well
1/2 teaspoon of Magnesium Chloride ever 3 days
Make it by adding hot water to bulk MgCl (1 to 1)
also use topically on both knees nightly
~2 ¢
Vitamin K2>100 ug Yes perhaps 100 ug/1000 IU of vitamin D Super K - all three forms in 1 capsule20 ¢
Vitamin A ? maybeneed some, but too much is bad 0* 0
Boron 10 mg Yes may increase D3 in blood by 25% Daily in granola in the morning 1 ¢
Silica ? Yes Daily - Horsetail - buy in bulk
Include in morning cereal
1 ¢
Omega-31 g or
1 Vectomega tablet
By increasing
Vitamin D
helps health A LOT
May increase active D
1 Vectomega daily - VERY bioavailable75 ¢
Zinc ??Needed by Vitamin D Receptor
Thus results not seen in Vitamin D tests
take 30 mg tablet or liquid weekly3 ¢
Following are NOT cofactors
Poly fatsRatio of types of fat no Almonds have the best fat ratio
and they have Magnesium
daily mixed nuts5
Water 2.5 liters/quartsNoHelp flush kidneys of any excess Calcium
Perhaps only need this much
Water if >10,000 IU
>1 quart per day, filtered0
Iodine ?? microgramsNo many people are deficient recently
I am currently researching the topic
~600 micrograms once a week ~1¢
Sun How much time varies with
skin type, age, latitude,
clothing, stand/lie . .
YesProbably better than vitamin D supplements30 minutes sun-nap 80 days/year
UVB lamp in the winter
0
Vitamin D2,000-15,000Yes Proven to prevent/treat 76+ diseases 12,000 IU avg - Winter (50,000 every 4 days)

Overview Sports and vitamin D has the following summary

Athletes are helped by vitamin D by:

  1. Faster reaction time
  2. Far fewer colds/flus during the winter
  3. Less sore/tired after a workout
  4. Fewer micro-cracks and broken bones
  5. Bones which do break heal much more quickly
  6. Increased VO2 and exercise endurance Feb 2011
  7. Indoor athletes especially need vitamin D
  8. Professional indoor athletes are starting to supplement with vitamin D or use vitamin D beds
  9. Olympic athletes have used UV/vitamin D since the 1930's
  10. The biggest gain from the use of vitamin D is by those who exercise less than 2 hours per day.
  11. Reduced muscle fatigue with 10,000 IU vitamin D daily
  12. Muscle strength improved when vitamin D added: 3 Meta-analysis

Alzheimers-Cognition - Overview has the following summary

  1. Both have strong inheritance features – Vitamin D about 60%
  2. Both have gotten substantially worse in last 30 years
  3. Vitamin D is known to be involved in brain development
  4. All autistic children are VitD deficient, but not all children who are deficient are autistic: genes are involved
  5. When giving vitamin D to cure children of rickets “mental dullness” decreases as well
  6. Children with genes which give them too much (Williams Syndrome) have to reverse of autism – too sociable
  7. Mothers having lots of fish (and thus more vitamin D) give birth to kids with less autistic symptoms
  8. Both associated with weak bones
  9. Both worse around the age of weaning
  10. Autism is more common in rich families – more likely to apply sun screen and stay indoors
  11. Autism increases with drugs which lower levels of vitamin D
  12. Seizures are common with Autism - Vitamin D has been shown to reduce seizures
  13. Fewer autistic symptoms (such as sleep problems) during summer: when child gets more vitamin D from the sun
  14. Both worse with latitude
  15. Both vary with Ultraviolet light
  16. Both vary with time of year (more birth of autistics in March in Northern hemisphere)
  17. 2X more urban autism – less UVB in urban environments
  18. Both worse with pollution
  19. Both worse with increased clouds and rain
  20. Both worse with closely spaced pregnancies
  21. Autistics have abnormal immune response – similar to that of vitamin D deficiency
  22. Low levels of vitamin D in mother animals reduces brain function in offspring
  23. Vitamin deficient rat pups have similar brain abnormalities to that of human autistic children
  24. Autistic children get less vitamin D in their blood for the same amount of sun exposure
  25. The 4 males/1 female ratio - Note estrogen increases vitamin D in the brain (testosterone does not)
  26. Both worse in African Americans (A-A 2-3 increased autism rate)
  27. Both worse in Dark-skinned immigrants in Europe
