There are only two substances I know of for which there are receptor sites on every cell of your body. Only two. They are thyroid hormone because thyroid hormone is the ‘thermostat’ in every cell of your body that determines how hot that cell runs (that’s called your metabolism, and Vitamin D. Every cell in your body requires Vitamin D. Every cell. That’s why it’s called ‘the sunshine vitamin’, it brings life to every cell in your body. So if you have low Vitamin D levels, what cell may not function correctly? Every cell! Any cell! That’s why Vitamin D is the most important of all nutrients for the body because every cell needs it.

25-Hydroxyvitamin D, known for its role in bone health and calcium absorption, also appears to affect immune function, neurodegenerative and cardiovascular issues, and other conditions. Vitamin D occurs in two forms—D3 is obtained from animal diet sources and through sun exposure, and D2 is obtained through vegetable diet sources. Both forms of the vitamin are used to fortify various foods and in supplements.

Detailed Information

25-Hydroxyvitamin D is the major circulating form of vitamin D. It occurs in two forms: vitamin D2 (ergocalciferol) and vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol), and is the precursor of the active form (1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D). Because of its long half-life, measurement of total 25-Hydroxyvitamin D (D2 plus D3) provides the best assessment of patient vitamin D status and includes vitamin D derived from diet, supplements and exposure to UVB light, such as sunlight. Vitamin D is best known for its role in calcium and bone metabolism, but emerging research indicates that low levels of vitamin D may be associated with increased risk of some cancers, type 2 diabetes, multiple sclerosis, cardiovascular disease, rheumatoid arthritis, depression, Alzheimer’s disease, infections, preeclampsia, cesarean deliveries and neurocognitive dysfunction. Vitamin D regulates the expression of a vast array of genes in tissues including immune cells, the vasculature, muscle and reproductive organs. Vitamin D insufficiency is common and deficiency can have adverse health effects at any stage of life. Many testing methods do not differentiate between the two forms of vitamin D, and only total concentrations are reported. This LC/MS QQQ method is sensitive and specific for both vitamin D2 and D3, and each form is measured and reported independently.

Receptor sites are like catchers mitts – in baseball, the pitcher throws the ball to the catcher. The way our hormones get into our cells is by being ‘caught’ in the bloodstream by a receptor site. Estrogen goes into estrogen receptor sites and then goes inside that cell. Testosterone goes into testosterone receptor sites. Insulin, melatonin,… all of our hormones get inside the cells by being caught by a receptor site. If there is no receptor site on the surface of a cell for a particular hormone, that hormone cannot get into that cell.

GS Vitamin D3 + K2
Immune & Bone Support*
$32.50
GS Vitamin D3 + K2 is a soy-free, natural vitamin D3 and vitamin K2 in a water-soluble micellized form. Micellization greatly increases the solubility, absorption and bioavailability over oil or emulsified forms.*
This formula includes the patented vitaMK7, a natural vitamin K2 (as MK7) which supports enhanced utilization of calcium in the bloodstream.* It is an all-trans natural menaquinone-7 with the highest bioavailability and longest half-life in the blood.* VitaMK7® is shown in human clinical studies to increase osteocalcin (calcium-binding protein) levels, enhancing the body’s ability to utilize calcium in the bloodstream.* It is also shown to prevent bone loss and promote bone integrity while significantly reducing the incidence of arterial calcification, promoting optimal cardiovascular function.* An in-vitro study shows vitaMK7® inhibits the production of PGE-2, a prostaglandin that acts as a potent stimulator of bone loss.* It is non-GMO and solvent free and processed under the strictest purity standards.
