Be strictly educational and is not intended to diagnose or treat any disease any medical decisions should be made between you and your health care professional and now here is dr len and again we’ll get into this information and it’s one you need to make good notes of and listen up important information about how doctors have been wrong for years so and

Again welcome thank you so much for uh listening my name is lynn branswitz for those of you that might be new i am a registered pharmacist retired a board-certified clinical nutritionist also a doctor of naturopathic medicine and nmd as well as a degree in homeopathy i do this show try to do it every day maybe every other day to get some information we call it

Your daily dose new research has found significant differences between the two types of vitamin d with vitamin d 2 the one that the doctors have said for decades is the superior form 50 000 iu is taken once a week it’s the better one it’s the only one that works here’s what they said having a questionable impact on human health guess what docs looks like you

May have been wrong however the study found that vitamin d3 when we talk about could balance people’s immune systems and help strengthen defenses against viral infections such as coved 19. in a collaborative study by the universities of surrey and the universities of brighton researchers investigated the impact of vitamin d threat supplements d2 and d3 take it

Daily over a 12-week period on the activity of genes in people’s blood it’s the most scientific way you can tell which one’s working better contrary to widely held views the research team discovered that both types of vitamin d did not have the same effect they found evidence that vitamin d3 had a modifying effect on the immune system that could fortify the body

Against viral and bacterial diseases professor colin smith lead author of the study from the university of surrey who began this work while at the university of brighton said this quote we have shown that vitamin d3 appears to stimulate the type 1 interferon signaling system in the body a key part of the immune system that provides a first line of defense against

Bacteria and viruses thus a healthy vitamin d3 status may help prevent viruses and bacteria from gaining a foothold in your body our studies suggest that it is important that people take a vitamin d3 supplement or suitably fortified foods especially during the winter months although some foods are fortified with vitamin d like breakfast cereals yogurts and bread

Few naturally contain the vitamin actually vitamin d3 is produced naturally in the skin from exposures to sunlight well some plants and fungi produce vitamin d2 some plants and fungus produce vitamin d2 many people have insufficient levels of vitamin d3 because they live in locations where sunlight is limited in the winter like the uk the coveted 19 pandemic

Has also limited people’s natural exposures to the sun due to people spending time locked up professor susan latham co-author of the study head of the department of nutritional sciences at the university of surrey said this while we found that vitamin d2 and d3 do not have the same effect on gene activity within humans the lack of impact we found when looking

At vitamin d2 means that a larger study is urgently required to clarify the differences however these results show clearly that vitamin d3 is the favored in superior form to be utilized in immunology there i said it there i said it here’s a little piece on consults hi everybody this is dr lynn and i want to talk to you today about a consultation a nutritional
