Did your doctor ever explain to you the importance of vitamin D? Were you ever tested for a vitamin D deficiency? Did you know that 75% of the world population is vitamin D deficient?

Vitamin D plays a crucial role in our immune system, cholesterol, insulin resistance and diabetes, weight problems, blood pressure, inflammation, and other health issues.

Watch the videos below where Dr. Eric Berg explains those important things our doctors usually don't bother to explain to us.



hey guys dr. Berg here in this video
00:01
we're going to talk about vitamin D
00:02
deficiency okay now vitamin D is mainly
00:06
there to help you absorb calcium in the
00:09
small intestine the vitamin D helps
00:11
absorb calcium by 20 times that's a lot
00:15
if you didn't have vitamin D you're not
00:16
going to absorb calcium that much so it
00:18
brings it from the intestine up into the
00:20
blood okay
00:21
it also helps lower blood pressure so
00:25
some people that are deficient have high
00:27
blood pressure because of low vitamin D
00:29
it also affects the immune system so if
00:33
you have an immune deficiencies or
00:35
autoimmune problems vitamin D can
00:38
actually help that in fact some of the
00:40
microbes in certain diseases are very
00:43
stealth and they block the receptor for
00:46
vitamin D to cause you now to pull that
00:49
thing in there to perpetuate the illness
00:52
it's really interesting also prevents
00:55
asthma so if you have if you're
00:58
asthmatic and you go out in the Sun and
01:00
you get all the Sun you will actually
01:02
reduce your symptoms greatly so vitamin
01:04
D deficiencies can set you up for as
01:07
asthma symptoms if you're taking bottom
01:10
in D like 2,000 milligrams is not going
01:13
to or 2,000 international units isn't
01:15
going to do anything you need
01:16
minimally ten thousand international
01:19
units now if you notice I'm not saying
01:21
milligrams international units are units
01:24
that are a lot different rating systems
01:27
so you need a lot more to equal
01:28
milligrams so I I probably like if
01:32
you're out in the Sun for 20 minutes
01:34
you're going to get 30 to 40 about 30 35
01:38
thousand international units of vitamin
01:40
D so I mean the Sun will give you that
01:43
so you want to be you don't be concerned
01:45
about taking too much vitamin D I mean
01:47
you could take like a hundred thousand
01:49
and still be okay but the danger is not
01:52
counteracting with vitamin k2 I put some
01:55
links down below if you don't know about
01:57
vitamin k2 to get more data but vitamin
01:59
k2 works with vitamin d3 and together to
02:03
transport calcium through the body so
02:06
what happens vitamin k2 will take that
02:09
calcium from the blood and push it into
02:12
the bone
02:13
so it actually helps it works with the
02:15
vitamin D in the transportation of
02:16
calcium so you don't end up with soft
02:18
tissue calcium or calcification the
02:20
arteries get the mk7 version that's a
02:23
natural and then without vitamin d you
02:26
get bone pain okay and then also vitamin
02:29
D is really good to prevent depression
02:31
so those especially that's why in the
02:34
winter people kind of get the blues so
02:37
let's just talk about what causes
02:38
vitamin D deficiencies number one gall
02:42
bladder if you don't have a gall bladder
02:43
then you're not going to have the bile
02:46
to emulsify and pull in the fat Seibel
02:50
vitamin vitamin D or even k2 so that
02:52
could be a problem and if you don't have
02:54
a gall bladder gall bladder problems
02:55
then you need to take something some bio
02:57
extract to help you and then cortisol so
03:01
in this book frank neder encyclopedia of
03:05
endocrinology volume 4 talks about
03:10
cortisol counteracting vitamin D so
03:14
that's interesting so stress can block
03:17
vitamin D so here you are getting the
03:19
Sun taking the vitamins but it still
03:22
shows low could be cortisol could be
03:24
high levels of cortisol that's stress
03:26
that can block it and that's why adrenal
03:29
cases have a lot of issues with calcium
03:31
because they have a vitamin D deficiency
03:33
so it also could be like it's in the
03:36
winter you don't get much Sun that could
03:38
be a cause in which case you want to
03:40
take some extra virgin cod liver oil
03:43
which is the best source of vitamin D
03:44
and then it could be from your diet you
03:48
don't consume enough foods with vitamin
03:50
D so anyway I just wanted to create a
03:54
little video to give you a little
03:55
summary of vitamin D and tell you some
03:56
of the other connections that you might
03:57

not be aware of so thanks for watching




00:00
we want to talk about how to increase
00:01
the absorption of vitamin D it's not
00:03
just a matter of just taking more
00:05
vitamin D or just getting a little Sun
00:06
and there's other things that you can do
00:08
to increase the absorption because
00:10
vitamin D can greatly help with
00:13
inflammation with your mood with
00:16
insomnia with sleep apnea okay and
00:20
autoimmune type of conditions and skin
00:22
issues now one really simple thing you
00:24
can do is press on your breast bone this
00:28
bone right here the sternum and see if
00:31
there's any tenderness in there there
00:32
shouldn't be any tenderness in that bone
00:34
okay and then you can press on your shin
00:37
which is in the front part of your lower
00:38
leg and if there's pain like bone pain
00:43
that could be about a mini deficiency
00:46
one really interesting thing I used to
00:48
do my clinic is I would have people test
00:50
for that and then have them take some
00:53
vitamin d3 and wait for 30 minutes that
00:56
pain is gone completely gone so you
00:57
might want to try that it's just a real
00:59
simple way to see if you have a pretty
01:02
good vitamin D deficiency because one of
01:04
the big symptoms is bone pain not just
01:06
necessarily hip pain but when you press
01:09
on the bone it hurts
01:11
so vitamin D is an anti-inflammatory
01:14
first thing is are you getting enough
01:17
Sun get outside expose your body more to
01:21
the Sun if you have a mutation or a
01:23
genetic issue which a lot of people have
01:25
and they don't know it there's some
01:27
testing that you can get done on that
01:28
you seem to take more vitamin D to
01:31
create the effect because the vitamin D
01:33
receptor is blocked and so the vitamin D
01:35
doesn't absorb that well but you can
01:38
overcome that with higher amounts I did
01:40
create a video to talk about if you're
01:44
taking high dosages of vitamin D what
01:47
other things you must do to prevent for
01:51
other problems like with hypercalcemia
01:53
higher calcium in the blood there's a
01:55
whole series of things you can do I
01:57
created a video on that I'll put a link
01:58
down below but it might be a good thing
02:01
to watch that just because you want to
02:02
take vitamin k2 you may not want to take
02:05
calcium like dairy when you're taking
02:08
the vitamin D because we don't want to
02:10
increase more but calcium
02:13
in the blood if we're doing this type of
02:16
therapy but zinc helps absorption of
02:20
vitamin D vitamin A is really important
02:24
in vitamin D and this is why Cobb liver
02:26
is so important because cod liver has a
02:28
nice balance 50/50 of vitamin A and
02:31
vitamin D with omega-3 which also helps
02:35
you absorb vitamin D so cod liver oil
02:38
has vitamin D vitamin A the two versions
02:42
of cacao mega 3 DHA and EPA so it's it's
02:46
really they all work together magnesium
02:49
helps you in the absorption of vitamin D
02:52
it also will help regulate calcium as
02:56
well vitamin D also can help absorb more
03:00
magnesium as well not just calcium in
03:02
the small intestine vitamin D is made
03:05
from cholesterol so if you go in a low
03:09
cholesterol diet or a low fat diet you
03:11
could starve off the raw material to
03:13
make vitamin D or even give you about a
03:15
minute so the cholesterol is in your
03:18
skin and your body then can convert it
03:20
from the Sun so we don't want to lower
03:23
cholesterol and by the way in certain
03:25
drugs that actually block vitamin D and
03:26
statin would be one of them because
03:28
statin blocks cholesterol show you about
03:30
how many levels plummet well guess what
03:32
you're going to get inflammation and
03:34
pain one of the big side effects from
03:37
statin is muscle pain probably because
03:42
also you're starving off the cholesterol
03:44
to make steroid hormones too and the
03:46
muscles kind of go downhill when you
03:48
take vitamin D you should take it wet
03:51
while you're eating some fat because
03:54
it'll be absorbed a little bit better
03:55
because it's a fat soluble vitamin if
03:58
you lower your stress you'll increase
04:00
the absorption of vitamin D because high
04:02
stress blocks the vitamin D probiotics
04:05
are important because they help to
04:08
recycle the bile from that's stored in
04:12
the gall bladder 95% of all the bile is
04:15
recycled over and over and over again so
04:17
it's a very efficient system and you
04:19
need the bile to extract vitamin D from
04:21
the food that you're eating
04:23
all right bile salts taking bile salts
04:26
when you're eating certain fats will
04:29
help the extraction of vitamin D from
04:31
your food intense exercise can help
04:35
increase the absorption of vitamin D
04:38
boron which is a trace mineral can help
04:41
vitamin D and help your bone formation
04:44
it also is good for increasing
04:46
testosterone vitamin k2 is really
04:50
important with d3 because they both work
04:53
together in the balancing out of calcium
04:56
if you don't have enough of k2 the
04:59
calcium tends to settle into the wrong
05:02
places the soft tissue like the arteries
05:05
vitamin D doesn't tell the calcium to go
05:08
anywhere it just increases it in the
05:09
blood and by the way it will lower your
05:12
blood pressure too but if you take k2
05:15
we'll take all that extra calcium and
05:16
drive it into the bone where it should
05:18
be and take it out of the joints and put
05:20
it into the bone but k2 is also really
05:22
really important in improving your
05:25
endurance when you exercise so it helps
05:28
the output of energy from the
05:29
mitochondria anyway here's a summary of
05:32
things you can do to increase the
05:33
absorption of vitamin D I'll see in the
05:35
next video
05:37
so if you're enjoying this content go
