so what is all this hype about vitamin D lately we’re hearing that everyone’s deficient in it we know that we get it from the sunlight but nobody’s really talking about what it does we just know that we should be taking it so I wanted to do this video because I think it’s important for everyone that’s working inside of an office for everyone that is working day in and day out and maybe isn’t getting enough sunshine so that they can hear exactly what vitamin D does in their body and how getting the right amount of vitamin D can actually help you burn some fat and I’m going to get to that in this video on how vitamin D can redistribute some your body composition but first let’s talk about what vitamin D really is C vitamin D isn’t really even a vitamin technically by definition a vitamin is something that you have to get from the diet to basically support a bodily function well vitamin D isn’t really a vitamin it’s considered a hormone it goes through what’s called a methylation process it’s actually processed by the liver and kidneys in order to be created so it’s not something that we’re getting from the diet it’s something that we are getting a precursor from the diet or from the sunlight and then it’s getting converted into what we’re calling a vitamin but in this case really a hormone now back in the 1920s they found that there was a pretty significant deficiency in vitamin D and in a lot of our foods and those that weren’t getting enough sunlight we’re developing something called rickets well rickets was a painful bone disease where the bones could actually bow and shape and kind of Bend in weird ways well rickets isn’t too common now because we started fortifying our foods with vitamin D like you’ll see your milk a lot of times says it’s got extra vitamin D added to it but as more and more of us are getting used to not wanting to eat the mainstream preservative filled foods we’re starting to find that we’re not getting enough vitamin D again simply because we’re starting to eat healthier it’s kind of a weird situation we’re eating healthier but we’re not getting enough vitamin D you see it’s not just as easy as absorbing sunlight and getting vitamin D C vitamin D is split into two different vitamins you got vitamin d2 and vitamin d3 now vitamin d2 is really created when a plant absorbs UV light then we eat the plant we get that vitamin D now vitamin d3 is created when we absorb sunlight that UV the light and that UVB light converts what is called 7d hydro cholesterol into vitamin d3 not then from there that vitamin d3 has to be converted into something called calcitriol this is massive amount of conversion that takes place just for vitamin D to really have an effect so that vitamin d3 that has been converted from 70 hydro cholesterol now goes to the liver go to the kidneys the kidneys and liver convert it into calcitriol where it is in its usable form and there you have it you start figuring out when you look at the words calcitriol see calcitriol helps calcium become absorbed which leads me into exactly what vitamin D does you see vitamin D allows us to absorb calcium that’s why you see it in milk because milk has a lot of calcium they figure okay if we add vitamin D it’s going to help this absorption of calcium and it’s pretty significant I mean without vitamin D we’re only absorbing about 10 to 15% of the calcium that we consume daily with proper vitamin D levels or at least having vitamin D levels close to the recommended daily level we are absorbing closer to 50% and if you look at my other videos you’ll see that I talked about how important calcium can be to not only mental health but staying in the best possible physical shape as well the reason that vitamin D is so big right now the reason we’re hearing so much about it is because there’s a lot of factors that are making us deficient in it one we’re not eating the right foods that do actually have vitamin d3 like the fatty fishes like salmon halibut or possibly even some things like egg yolks but we’re not getting enough sunlight as well we’re stuck in offices all the time a lot of us are working 9 to 5 jobs but the other thing is when we do go outside we’re wearing sunscreen and I’m not here to tell you you shouldn’t wear sunscreen that’s really not my position I’m not a doctor but the thing is if sunscreens are getting so powerful now that it’s preventing us from absorbing and converting that 70 hydro cholesterol so you really ought to maybe think about going outside for even just a few minutes without some sunscreen so you can at least let that natural conversion take place but now I want to talk about what vitamin D can do for you and if you make sure you get your levels to the right place how much better you can feel now we already talked about calcium we talked about how it can have that effect let’s talk about how it can actually change your body composition it can definitely help you redistribute some of that belly fat this is perfect for the guy that’s trying to keep the muscle on him he doesn’t want to lose a lot of weight he doesn’t want to go into a caloric deficit but he does want to redistribute some of this belly fat in fact according to the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition there was a study that took place over the course of 12 weeks that took 23 participants and of those 23 participants half of them took 4,000 IU’s of vitamin D in supplement form and the other half took placebo well they all went through the same 12-week resistance training program and at the end of that 12 weeks although the two sets subjects ended up coming out weighing the exact same more or less not losing any weight not gaining any weight those that took the vitamin D supplement had a drastic difference in their waist-to-hip ratio that waist-to-hip ratio is a great indicator of how lean someone is through the abdomen not necessarily focusing only on body weight so what that tells us is that by having an adequate amount of vitamin D it takes some of the stress off of our body which allows our cortisol levels to come a little bit lower and I’m hypothesizing here because nobody really truly knows why vitamin D has a direct correlation with belly fat all we know is it does exist but the fact is if you go out and you eat the right kinds of foods you eat the fatty fish is like the salmon the halibut or even the right kind of tuna you can get the adequate amounts of vitamin D that you need otherwise get out in the Sun and make sure that you’re at least letting yourself absorb 10 to 15 minutes of sunlight three times a week and at the end of the day you can definitely take a vitamin D supplement there’s a lot of them out there usually ranging from 1000 IU all the way up to 10,000 IU and you can do a simple blood test it only costs a couple of bucks to see exactly where you’re at and you can start taking a vitamin D supplement and get yourself to where you need to be and sort of monitor it yourself so that’s it for this video hopefully this shed some light on how vitamin D works how it’s helping you absorb calcium but more importantly that it’s not really a vitamin at all and how you can help your body make it happen I’ll see you in the next video

How Vitamin D3 Works
1. Vitamin D was discovered in 1920 where its importance in our bodies was realized in discovering a way to cure rickets, a painful bone disease in children (2)
2. Vitamin D fortified foods began within a decade, making rickets rare in the US (2)
3. Vitamins are defined as an essential nutrient that your body cannot produce on its own and must acquire from the diet – Vitamin D is not actually a vitamin, but a hormone, which is a chemical that regulates body physiology. (1)
a. Your skin makes vitamin D when exposed to sunlights, so it does not need to acquire it from food if adequate sunlight is available (2)
i. The only natural foods that contain vitamin D are fish and egg yolks (2)
What Does Vitamin D Do?
1. We are discovering more and more ways that the body utilized vitamin D as time goes on
a. Vitamin D receptors, proteins that bind to vitamin D, exists in many of the body’s tissues, including the heart, muscles, endocrine glands, prostate and many others. (2)
2. Bone health – vitamin D is essential for our bodies to be able to absorb calcium. Without enough vitamin D, the body absorbs only 10-15% of dietary calcium, versus 30-40% when our vitamin D levels are normal.
How to Get Enough Vitamin D
Now that we understand how important vitamin D is in our bodies, and how likely it is that we do not have enough, how do we get more?
1. Sunlight – It can be a good idea to first spend a bit of time in the sun before applying sunscreen
a. spend 10-15 minutes three times per week without sunscreen on. This may be enough to prevent deficiencies (5)
2. Fatty fish, such as salmon, tuna and mackerel, and egg yolks (5)
3. Fortified foods: Many foods have been fortified with vitamin D, so look for this at your grocery store. Such foods include some milks, yogurts, orange juices and cereals (2)
4. Mushroom trick: mushrooms are a great source of natural vitamin D
a. Exposing mushrooms to sunlight prior to eating them will ramp up their vitamin D levels! So sit them on your window sill or backyard prior to adding them to your food (6)
5. UV Lamps
a. They are similar to tanning beds, but not identical. They carry the same skin-cancer risk as the sun or tanning beds, so be careful not to overdo it. These are a great option for those who live where there is little access to direct sunlight (8)
6. Supplementation: Last is supplementation. It is best to obtain some sunlight and concentrate on adding additional vitamin D in your diet. That being said, if you believe you are lacking vitamin D you can always buy supplements. Total recommended intake can vary from about 200 IU to 400 IU per day, including what you get from diet and sunlight. (5)
