    Muscles starve/waste in the absence of vitamin D

    As turns out, yet again, vitamin D is far from being the simple "bone vitamin" as most TV/online commercials would have us believe. It is actually a (seco)steroid and has already been implicated in a host of metabolic and immune process affecting virtually every disease. Recently, I posted a few...

    Oral vitamin D3 may treat steroid-driven hair loss

    A very interesting study, which demonstrates that a relatively low (5,000 IU) oral daily dose of vitamin D3 for 6 months, may be able to treat gender-specific (driven by steroids) hair loss. Now, the study participants were all female, with female-pattern hair loss (FPHL), however the findings...

    Vitamin D may prevent/delay Type I diabetes

    Vitamin D seems to be trying to take aspirin's crown as a universal drug away. The study below is the latest evidence that this remarkable nutrient may have therapeutic effects in conditions that most doctors consider completely unrelated outside of vitamin D's realm (e.g. calcium absorption)...

    Increased activation of vitamin D (1,25D/25D ratio) is likely to be linked to disruption of the bone-kidney-parathyroid endocrine axis.

    https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/labs/pmc/articles/PMC8521239 The results of the present study suggested that vitamin D activities had relevance to clinical parameters, especially bone turnover, with gender-specific correlations with features in age and BMI. The ratio of serum 1,25D/25D as a marker...

    Vitamin D supps might have shelf life as low as 2 weeks after opening?

    This guy suggests that after you open a bottle with vitamin D supplement, you have just about 2 weeks to consume it before it completely loses its potency. Because when you open the bottle, oxygen gets in and can begin the decay process of the vitamin D into inactive metabolites. I haven't...
