Do you want to know why so many of us are sick?
Even guys who “feel good” have this problem.
This newsletter today will help you become a whole level healthier.
It comes down to germs.
Germs are right here in our body.
Our gut contains several pounds of bacteria, fungus, and yeast.
And these microbes are continually spewing out various toxins that our body has to deal with.
The liver deals with these toxins as best as it can.
The liver is sewage treatment facility of the body.
So it works to get rid of the toxins.
But these microbes often overwhelm us today.
Many of us have nonalcoholic fatty liver disease, whether we realize it or not.
So most of us have livers that are not working very well.
So our livers are not able to fully remove the toxic waste products from these germs.
All of these bacteria, fungus, and yeast are fermenting in our guts.
The resulting toxins in our bodies cause inflammation in every cell of our body.
One of the major toxins that bacteria create is Lipopolysaccharide, LPS.
This is a component of the outer membrane of the bacterial cells.
And it’s a known to cause inflammation and fever in the body.
I want to introduce you to one more chemical in the body, toll-like receptors.
Toll-like receptors are very, very important.
Just remember bacteria trigger full length receptors.
And when toll like receptors are triggered, the result is inflammation.
It’s not the bacteria that cause inflammation, it’s toll like receptors reacting to the bacteria.
As this study shows, it turns out that vitamin D can actually cut back on the toll-like receptor activity.
This results in much less inflammation.
Yes, reducing inflammation is one of the benefits of vitamin D.
This is not a human study, it’s a fish study.
But the exact same biochemistry happens in fish, people, and all animals.
Vitamin D inhibits the reaction to LPS that would normally cause widespread inflammation.
Studies on fish do not take as long to perform as human studies.
This particular study is one of several that demonstrate the value of vitamin D.
They show how vitamin D controls inflammation by cutting back on the activity of the toll-like receptors.
There is a mouse study that shows that vitamin D helps reduce periodontitis.
You may be familiar with periodontitis as receding gums.
It’s a potentially painful inflammatory problem with gums.
The same mechanism of vitamin D that helps to treat periodontitis helps with other inflammation.
It works by lowering or restricting the activity of toll like receptors is responsible.
Here’s what I’d recommend you do now.
You really want to make sure that your vitamin D levels are good.
Many people have very low vitamin D levels.
The best source of vitamin D sunlight, yet most of us cannot get enough sunlight.
We need small amounts of sunlight to maximize our vitamin D.
Sunlight also contains ultraviolet light which is very toxic.
But small amounts of sunlight are not dangerous.
And the sun contains a lot of red light to counteract the toxic effects of sunlight.
So if you can’t get enough sunlight, just take vitamin D3 orally, which is what I do.
You need to take vitamin D3 with fat because it’s fat soluble.
And you always need to take some vitamin A and vitamin K2 with it.
Because if you just take large amounts of vitamin D3, without vitamin K2, you will develop brittle bones.
The imbalance vitamin D will cause calcium to leech away from your bones.
And the vitamin D will invade your tissues including arteries.
But vitamin A & K2 balance it all out.
Low vitamin D3, or vitamin D3 without K2, results in arteries developing plaque.
This is how arteries get plaque filled and hard…including penile arteries.
The vitamin K2 and vitamin A counteract this effect and are all designed to work together.
The combination will strengthen your bones.
It will also help you next time you’re at the dentist.
It’ll help because your jawbone will be in better shape.
So you probably won’t need any deep cleanings or gum treatments.
And we now know that vitamin D can fight inflammation throughout our bodies.
This is great news because almost all health problems today result from inflammation.
And taking vitamin D for inflammation is far less dangerous than many other options.
Vitamin D3 down-regulates monocyte TLR expression and triggers hyporesponsiveness to pathogen-associated molecular patterns
