New To Keto But Want To Grow Your Knowledge?
More specifically, you want help with Vitamin D and Coronary Artery Calcification?
so recently I had a question I want to clarify relating to vitamin D and calcium okay because one of the side effects of too much vitamin D it’s called hypervitaminosis D which is vitamin D toxicity would be high levels of calcium in the blood and of course that could potentially lead to calcification of your arteries okay so I wanted to differentiate that from what really happens and I’m gonna put a link down below of some really great research in this area vitamin D inversely correlates to coronary artery calcification which means when you increase your vitamin D you actually decrease the calcification in the coronary artery okay that you would think it would just be the opposite but that’s not the way it works vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin and it’s even carried by lipoproteins like HDL and LDL are lipoproteins that transports certain fats cholesterol triglycerides and fat soluble vitamins like vitamin A vitamin E and even vitamin D since fat and essential fatty acids and fats I bottom ins don’t mix well with water they need to be transported with these proteins now you would assume that because vitamin D has to do with calcium absorption and increase in calcium in the blood that that would automatically just deposit and calcify your arteries but calcium is very very tightly controlled by a lot of different factors one is vitamin k2 vitamin k2 works with vitamin D in that it actually helps remove excess calcium that vitamin D created so it takes it out of the arteries takes it out of the joints and pushes it into the bone so let’s just take for example an artery that’s filled with calcium we have to understand in an earlier beginning okay and the beginning started with some type of oxidation to the wall of the artery then you had inflammation and that signaled the body’s healing capacity to lay down cholesterol in calcium well guess what vitamin D is probably there to heal this lesion not necessarily to lay down and deposit calcium but there is a part of the healing process because it’s an anti-inflammatory vitamin in fact taking vitamin D actually reduces stiffness in the arteries so it can really really help someone the point I’m trying to make is vitamin D is not the problem you you need to look at the whole picture and I always recommend if you’re taking vitamin D also take vitamin k2 at the same time and you’re not going to have any problems with excess calcium even if you have a large amounts of vitamin D if you have vitamin K cube alright I’ll see you later so to prevent me from running out of content I have a new survey I want to find out what you are interested in so please fill it out the links down below

In this video, Dr. Berg talks about vitamin D and calcium. One of the side effects of too much vitamin D or hypervitaminosis D is high levels of calcium in the blood that could potentially lead to calcification of the arteries.
Vitamin D inversely correlates to coronary artery calcification which means when you increase the vitamin D, you decrease the calcification in the coronary artery. Taking vitamin D reduces stiffness in the arteries.
Calcium is very tightly controlled by a lot of different factors, one is vitamin k2, which works with vitamin D and helps remove excess calcium that vitamin D created.
