Reducing Cancer Risk with Vitamin D

October is “Breast Cancer Awareness” month. Recent scientific studies have observed that by raising our Vitamin D3 we can make a 67% dent in breast cancer.

Higher serum levels of the main circulating form of vitamin D, 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25(OH)D), are associated with substantially lower incidence rates of colon, breast, ovarian, renal, pancreatic, aggressive prostate and other cancers

This study adds evidence to Dr. Ed Giovannucci 2003 study (Cancer Res 2003;164:333-48)at the Harvard School of Public Health which reported that Vitamin D Could Decrease Overall Cancer Risk by 30%.

Recent scientific studies have found that the level of Vitamin D in most people, while adequate to protect against rickets, is not high enough to lower the probability of pain, cancer, autism, heart disease, osteoporosis and many more medical conditions that may be caused by insufficient amounts of Vitamin D.

Shaklee Corporation recently published a study in the Journal of Clinical Lipidology

The data were clear cut. The group getting only 632 IU of supplemental vitamin D had blood vitamin D levels of 29.7 ng/ml, an amount considered to be borderline
deficient.

In contrast, the group getting 1315 IU of supplemental vitamin D had blood vitamin D levels of 52.1 ng/ml, an amount considered to be optimal. Shaklee’s Vitalizer and Ostematrix (calcium and magnesium products) will provide this amount of Vitamin D to get your levels to 52.1 ng/ml.

Editor’s Note: I am patient of Dr. Brouse of Sunnyside Health Clinic. He is a physician chiropractor, Clinical Nutritionist, and biochemist. He stated that if a person is low on calcium that they would need an additional 10,000  units daily to catch up with their calcium. He used the analogy of putting deposits in the bank. If you have not made enough deposits of calcium then you will have to also add the additional 10K of D3. You can have your D3 levels tested. Dr. Brouse said that it is optimum to have your D3 levels at 75 ng/dl. For younger people that may mean an extra 5K daily and for older people that can be around 5-10K daily and for perhaps a 50K tablet of D3 once a week. Make sure you have your D3 levels tested first by your doctor.
