Vitamin D, A Double Edged Sword for Osteoporosis

Vitamin D is known for helping create strong bones and is a key regulator of serum calcium levels. Recent studies, however, have not offered much proof that Vitamin D supplements prevents bone fractures.

Sorry, doubting that! I take 5000 i.u. per day and no calcium (can’t tolerate it in any form) my bone density went from abnormal to normal in one year.

Not that I doubt this Ivanhoe, most science has been corrupted by money.

Vitamin D, sunshine and probiotics did the trick for me!

Prunes are supposed to work. I have my husband on 10 a day and I’ve got a whole retirement community eating them too after one of the women got a broken rib when a guy just gave her a friendly hug.

WHAT kind of Vitamin D? (It has to be D3, but this article does not say THAT!) I get tired of idiots not doing their writing/researching appropriately.

The D2 synthetic is, I believe, what is normally prescribed by doctors. my wife and I take 10k D3 daily and have had no virri at all in the 2 and half years since we started, She is a school teacher and used to bring a virus home several times a school year. She also gets much better bone density reports.

I have no idea if this has merit or not but I can tell you that the socialists are trying to cast doubt on everything we know in order to have the excuse to REGULATE EVERYTHING.

Be suspect of every study and every finding from here out.

Notice how many studies are now showing multivitamins and all sorts of supplements are either ineffective or harmful or both. Notice how many preventative tests are now "unnecessary" or harmful. Why? control control control!

The obesity epidemic? It doesn't exist. It's a made up lie to provide cover for running up the cost of food in order to once again, control the people.

Sorry for the rant but everyone needs to be aware of these attacks on our liberty.

We all will have to do our homework from here out.

Already been doing that for 20 years at least, ever since the latest "study" started passing for the headline story on the nightly news.

precisionshootist is correct the obesity 'epidemic' is a real as global warming in the middle of the ice age.

The baby boomers are getting older and older people have always gained weight. The government statistics doesn't take age into account.

Obesity epidemic doesn’t exist? You have got to be kidding, right? I agree with a lot of what you wrote in your post, but not that. People at all levels of society are having weight problems, middle-income people are struggling to keep their weight down, and the lower middle class and below are getting HUGE. Even the kids are getting corpulent and diabetic. So, yes, it’s a serious national problem. I just don’t want the government helping us with it.

that’s because it’s MAGNESIUM that makes bones strong.

Agreed. And the point needs to be made that artificial D2 conflicts with Magnesium absorption.

Thankfully many doctors recognize Vit D3’s role in immunity and bone health and are testing blood levels. They regularly prescribe high doses initially then tell you to maintain with OTC pills.

Here’s a book concerning the need to combine Vitamin D3 supplementation with Vitamin K2 (my local Wal-Mart carries this):

Vitamin K2 and the Calcium Paradox: How a Little-Known Vitamin Could Save Your Life by Kate Rheaume-Bleue

The book is available at Amazon - I got it on Kindle.

Essentially, K2 acts in synergy with D3 and calcium to direct calcium to the bones instead of letting it end up as calcified plaque in the blood vessels.

Agree with that as well. And when you are deficient in mag, and most of us are, calcium then calcifies on your arteries, organs, tissues (breasts) and reeks havoc.

The head of visit orlando just died last night and he was a ‘exercise buff’. Well, if you are NOT supplementing with the right kind of mag, and you’re sweating alot (losing mag), you are very vulnerable to heart attack.

Fat kids were rare when I grew up...now they’re common. In fact it never fails to shock me when I see these poor kids.

"Obesity epidemic doesn’t exist?"

Correct, it does not exist.

"People at all levels of society are having weight problems, middle-income people are struggling to keep their weight down, and the lower middle class and below are getting HUGE. Even the kids are getting corpulent and diabetic."

Not sure where you are or who you are looking at but our high school has over five thousand enrolled and finding just one chunky one in the crowd is rare. We have some pretty big gatherings here in the dallas area, sporting events, state fair, etc. Once again most people are thin as can be.

and the number one reason, proof positive, irrefutable evidence that I am correct?

THE LIBERALS SAY THERE'S AN OBESITY PROBLEM AND THEY LIE WITH THEIR EVERY BREATH.

Trust me they made it up to provide cover while they drive the price of food to unaffordable levels in order to keep the people from accumulating any level of wealth.

It's the same thing as the war on fossil fuels. They don't give a crap about the planet. They are against CHEAP energy no matter what form it takes. They want to strap you with energy bills that take all disposable income and prevent the accumulation of wealth. That's the mechanism that keeps you dependent and controllable.

If you really want to dig. I can show you how they manipulate the statistics and metrics to support a fictitious obesity problem. Just do a little research on ideal weights for a particular age and height, etc.

Trust me, it's a lie

What is the difference between D2 and D3? Our doctor told us to take D3.

D3 is natural. D2 Vitamin is artificially produced by radiating yeast and doesn't work as well in human bodies.

There are plenty of fat white kids out there. And furthermore, saying the Latinos have always been overweight...well was that before McDonalds and Taco Bell? Do you have any stats? That just sounds like a real general comment that begs for facts.

Also, have you ever traveled?

quick google search:

Looking at the white and Mexican men they are about the same weight

Note: Mexican men are also on average shorter.

I have traveled throughout the pacific, a little in the Caribbean and through out north America. Heading to Taiwan and Japan next week
