What is Vitamin D?

It seems that a day does not go by without hearing about Vitamin D.  So, what is Vitamin D?

Vitamin D is a very complex substance. For over half a century vitamin D was thought only to mineralize bones.  But studies indicate that it does much more:

• Regulates calcium in all cells (especially brain cells)
• Protects the immune system
• Regulates cell growth and cell death
• Provides antioxidant and antiviral benefits

Since foods contain very little vitamin D, the body’s major source is from that manufactured in the deeper layers of the skin. The UVB wavelength from sunlight activates 7-dehydrocholesterol (7-DHC), transforming it into a precursor form of vitamin D-3.

It then changes to active vitamin D-3 and enters the blood stream where it is distributed all over the body.

Vitamin D from foods is metabolized in the liver and the kidneys to form the active vitamin D-3. Many forms of commercial vitamin D supplements are not the active form. So, when you buy vitamin D supplements make sure it is vitamin D-3.

Bob’s Best Vitamin D3 is the active form and very beneficial to the body, providing 5000 iu of Vitamin D3 with each tablet.  Bob recommends that you use one of his vitamin D3 tablets and one coral calcium with each meal.  

Get Your Vitamin D Daily – Not Annually

Vitamin D3

You wouldn’t eat a year’s worth of meals in one day (although I’ve seen people try), so don’t attempt to load up on all your vitamins in a single sitting, either.

This nuts-o concept is at the heart of a new study out of Australia, where researchers gave a group of senior women massive doses of vitamin D… but only once a year.

Turns out it doesn’t help.

No kidding! I could have saved them the time and trouble — but they didn’t ask me. Instead, these researchers gave 2,256 women 70 years old or older either a single 500,000 IU dose of D in one day, or a placebo.

That’s it — nice seeing you, stop by again in a year.

After tracking these women for between three and five years, the researchers found that those who got the megadoses of D actually had a slightly higher risk of falls and fractures, according to the study in the Journal of the American Medical Association.

And that means… absolutely nothing. You sure can’t blame anything on the vitamin D — because these women hardly had any! Outside of that one day a year when they received that megadose, these old gals were every bit as deficient as you are right now.

And yes — unless you’ve been taking my advice, you ARE deficient. Some of you are so badly lacking in D that you might actually need a megadose yourself — talk to a doctor who knows how to handle his nutrients to find out if this approach is right for you.

But whatever you do, don’t stop there — because daily D should be part of everyone’s routine. You’ll need a quality vitamin D3 supplement, and a good pair of earplugs.

Then, skip the sunscreen and head outside, because the best source of D is natural sunlight. And if anyone tries feeding you the same old lies about sun exposure and cancer, just put in those earplugs.

Vitamin D Fraud?

Recently one vitamin has caused a frenzy of activity in the press and among anti-aging practitioners around the world.

Beware of the lie that may be hiding in your vitamin d supplement…

Until recently, vitamin D was recommended for bone health and nothing more.  New and exciting breakthrough studies have revealed the almost miracle benefits of this one simple vitamin.

Heart health, blood pressure, prostate health, colon health—vitamin D’s power is proving to be amazing!

As a Chemist and Researcher who has been teaching the benefits of vitamin D3 for over 30 years, Bob Barefoot is troubled by some of today’s vitamin D supplements. If you’re taking your vitamin D, you must be sure of one thing…

There’s a good chance your “D” is not what it is cracked up to and it’s not providing you with the health benefits you need and deserve.

There are two forms of vitamin D that the human body can synthesize and use…

One is the anti-aging and health miracle being researched and written about in medical journals around the world…The other is cheap, ineffective and was deemed nearly worthless by the esteemed Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism.

The dirty secret is that the useless form is sometimes used by supplements and often used by pricey prescription pills!

Vitamin D2 is often used in supplements and prescription pills because…it’s dirt cheap.

Vitamin D3, however, is as premium as it gets.  In fact, scientists at Creighton University and Medical University of South Carolina proved with a controlled, double-blind study that revealed vitamin D3 is 300% more effective than D2.

You see, scientists noted that both forms raised vitamin D blood serum levels, but while vitamin D2 reached its peak and peetered out in just 3 days, vitamin D3 kept on climbing the charts and didn’t peak for 14 days! Even better, D3 maintained high blood serum levels for the entire study, while D2 plummeted down the charts after its peak.

If vitamin D3 is that much more Effective and Powerful and is the form that’s being used in these incredible studies, why are some supplements using this worthless alternative?

Frankly, because they’re only looking at the almighty dollar and not really concerned for your health.

Bob’s Best Vitamin D3 5000 iu is the highest quality supplement you deserve!

The same POWERFUL form used in these groundbreaking studies. The results to these eye-opening studies are streaming in daily. What is the one thing they all have in common?

They’re all about vitamin D3—that’s the only form you need!

  • The Journal of Clinical Investigation reports D3 may play a pivotal role in helping keep your blood pressure healthy.
  • The Archives of Internal Medicine reveals the strong connection between D3 and your cardiovascular health.
  • An 18-year study performed at the Harvard School of Medicine surveyed over 14,000 men and revealed the healthy relation between proper prostate health and vitamin D levels.

And that’s just a few of the groundbreaking studies…

Don’t let time pass you by; you have nothing to loose but quality life and greater health.

Why Calcium? Why Vitamin D3?

Every time we turn on the radio we hear that calcium is good for you.  All foods are being stuffed with calcium.  Television is also full of the same advertising telling us that calcium is good for us, but no one will tell us why, other than it makes us healthy.  But how??? And Why???

Also, if indeed calcium is so good for us, then its biological partner, Vitamin d,  must be just as good, but no one has been extolling the virtues of vitamin d until just recently.  One thing for sure is that the American public needs to be told in simple terms why and how these nutrients make us healthy and how low vitamin d is causing us great harm.

The answer, ironically, is indeed simple.  First, there is more calcium in the human body than any other mineral.  It is involved in hundreds of biological functions crucial to life.  Excess calcium is stored in the bones to replenish calcium levels when the body is calcium deficient in order to perform its crucial biological functions.  However, to maintain health, this bone calcium must be replaced, and unfortunately, calcium is one of the hardest minerals for the body to absorb.  So where should you get your calcium?

Of course in the beginning it is mother’s milk from which much of her immunity to disease is also transferred to the infant.  Then, because we are not animals who will eat bushels of calcium rich grass, most of us get our calcium from cows’ milk but as we get older we drink less and less milk and many of us shy away from dairy products, meaning that our bones slowly become depleted in calcium.

But that is not all that happens.  When the body has adequate calcium, it has an ability to ward off disease and to maintain youth.  Wow!! That is a big claim and fortunately, it has all been proven by the scientific community, as can  be seen in the chapter on scientific quotations in Bob’s book called Barefoot on Vitamin D.

The human intestine is lined with human vitamin d receptors known as VDR’s.  These VDR’s are also present in the bone and kidney as well as in the parathyroid glands.  When the VDR’s are full of vitamin-D (about 5000 iu of vitamin d is required for this) then the intestine is capable of absorbing 2000% more calcium.  “VDR’s are also found in the melanoma cells, breast carcinoma cells and osteo-sarcoma cells where vitamin d inhibits the proliferation of cancer as well as in the pancreas where vitamin d enhances the production of insulin; in the heart muscle where vitamin d enhances ventricular contractility; and in many other organs where it plays a crucial biological role.”  The American Public must be made aware of the 1-2 punch provided by the biological Partners Calcium and Vitamin D and the scientific fact that they must be taken in conjunction with one another.

Bob recommends the use of three Bobs Best Coral Calcium 2000 and 3 of his Bobs Best Vitamin D3.
