Benefits of Vitamin D often limited by genes

Vitamin D (Cholecalciferol in blood, fat, breast milk)
Processing by Liver into 'Calcidiol is limited by
        CYP24A1 gene
Outside of the liver Calcidiol' production is limited by
       CYP2R1 gene
Measured Vit D = Calcidiol

         the following genes are invisible to vit D test
Only a portion of Calcidiol is bio-available
      the rest is tied up by Vit D Binding Protein = GC
Kidney excreting = Calcidiol
      is a function of CYP24A1 gene
Active Vit D (from Kidney etc.) = Calcitriol
Vitamin D availability in the cells
      is a function of Vit D receptor gene

It seems that ~30% of the people do not get full benefit from Vitamin D due to gene limitations
It seems that 20% of limitations due to genes are invisible to Vitamin D blood tests

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 )

A poor VDR increases the risk of 54 health problems  click here for details
The risk of 43 diseases at least double with poor Vitamin D Receptor as of Oct 2019

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) MagnesiumVitamin 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
   paricalcitol, maxacalcitol?
Vitamin D Receptor
7) Quercetin (flavonoid) Vitamin D Receptor
8) Zinc is in the VDRVitamin D Receptor
9) BoronVitamin D Receptor ?,
10) Essential oils e.g. ginger, curcuminVitamin D Receptor
11) ProgesteroneVitamin 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
