The Worst Way to Take Your Vitamin D

You right here in this little supplement. This is vitamin D. Yes, our body can make vitamin D from sunshine. We can get it from our foods like our fatty fishes, certain fortified foods have it, but it’s very hard to get all of our vitamin D from foods that is.

But vitamin D plays miraculous roles in our body from our immune system, our bones, our heart, cardiovascular system, our cells, the fetus, our brain. This plays such a very important role to keep our bodies healthy.

And the foods that contain the most vitamin D are the fatty fish such as salmon, mackerel, sardines, cod liver oil, canned tuna, egg yolks, fortified dairy products like milk, yogurt and cheese, fortified plant based milks such as almond milk or soy milk, as well as beef liver.

But here’s the big problem. We’re not getting enough of these foods to keep our vitamin D levels up. And when our vitamin D levels are down, that’s when we start experiencing lots of sickness. Our immune system goes down.

This affects osteoporosis because vitamin D is not there to allow calcium to get into the bones. And I’m sure that we would admit as we get older, we don’t spend enough time in the sun. Not only that, the dangerous uva and uvb rays that potentially can cause sun cancer to our skin, skin aging, wrinkles, dryness of our skin.

That’s another big problem. So what do we do? So most of us will supplement vitamin D. And the big question is, how much vitamin D should I take? It really depends upon your body’s chemistry where some people can take 1000 ius of vitamin D and have high levels. And other people like me who take 5000 ius of vitamin D a day have medium levels.

It really depends how you metabolize vitamin D. But the big question is, are you taking your vitamin D correctly, particularly with a supplement? Because if you’re getting your vitamin D from your foods, you have everything there where your body is going to assimilate.

That is the number one advantage. And that goes with any mineral or vitamin that when you’re eating healthy foods that contain those vitamins and minerals, those essential nutrients as well as those enzymes in the whole state, your body is going to assimilate it with no problem.

Well, I will make a bet with many of you that you have been taking your vitamin D incorrectly. Not only your vitamin D, but maybe other vitamins as well. Let me explain. You see, we have water soluble and fat soluble vitamins.

Your water soluble vitamins are your vitamin B, your vitamin C that you can take with water. You can take that with anything. But if you’re taking a fat soluble vitamin, which is vitamin D, as well as vitamin D-E-A and K, which are still fat soluble vitamins, and you’re taking it with water and not food, your body is going to waste it.

You’re not going to assimilate it into your bloodstream, and you’re not going to get those health benefits to keep you healthy. So let me give you a great analogy. I want you to think of fat solubility, like making a creamy salad dressing.

When you mix the oil and vinegar to make a dressing, you know that the oil and vinegar don’t naturally blend together because they have different properties. However, if you shake the two together vigorously, the oil and the vinegar combine to create a smooth, creamy texture that coats the salad ingredients evenly.

And in a similar way, fat soluble vitamins like vitamin D need to be mixed with a dietary fat in your body before they could be absorbed properly. Just as the oil in the salad dressing needs to combine with the vinegar to create this homogeneous mixture, vitamin D needs to be paired with dietary fats so they can be absorbed effectively in your digestive system.

So if you’re going to take vitamin D at an empty stomach or take it with water, that’s like taking the vinegar and oil and not mixing it well. The vitamin D cannot mix with your digestive system. It cannot be shaken up.

Therefore, you’re not going to assimilate any vitamin D unless you take it with fats. Avocado oil, olive oil, butters, natural fats, healthy fats, that’s what you need to make sure you’re taking it with. And I can highly stress to everyone out there, the safest way that you’re going to know that you’re getting your vitamin D is take it with a meal.

Therefore, you don’t have to worry about fats. But the worst way, and I’ll say it again, do not ever take your vitamin D in an empty stomach, with water, with soda, with juice that does not have fat, because the body will not absorb it into the intestine.

You’re not going to get it into your bloodstream. It’s not going to perform those magical, healing, miraculous things in your body. It’s not going to keep you healthy like you think it is. And your vitamin D levels will be much lower.

And you’re going to say, wow, I’ve been taking these vitamin D supplements for months and I have low vitamin D levels. Aha. There’s your answer. I hope that you found this video valuable because I’m sure this will help many. Please share it with your friends and family. Leave your comments below. And most important, make it a great day.
