The reason is far broader than a chemical change from supplementing and that is something that only personal research will uncover.
The synergy required to absorb and process many varied chemicals as well as the Ultra Violet Rays make the suggestion that Vit D is vital in any health situation a very complex understanding to process.
Blood tests show there is a deficiency in 'the chemical' that is tested for, then there are multiple processes by our bodies to produce the huge variety of outcomes that are influenced by the 'blood tested' Vit D form.
Supplements will change the outcome of the Vit D blood test, BUT, will that change your health?
Research cannot provide that answer, so we have be aware of the complexity of the Vit D processes.
One size fits, oh that's right, one size only!
exactly! essential nutrients aren't called essential for nothingYou could spend a life time trying to fully understand what water does and how it does it in the body, but the very simple fact remains that we stop living without it.
Very interesting study.NZer1 wrote:Multiple Sclerosis Research Australia
Australian and Dutch researchers have shown that higher sun exposure, but not vitamin D levels, are associated with lower levels of fatigue and depression in people with MS.

Dr. Robert Furchgott, a colleague of Dr. Sclafani at SUNY Downstate, won the Nobel Prize for unraveling how this process works, the combination of calcium with arginine.1eye wrote:As it has been noted elsewhere, sun exposure will release from its storage in your skin a substance which is used everywhere in your body for vasodilation. Vitamin D does not have this effect. The substance is nitric oxide, a molecule which combines the 2 main components of air -- nitrogen and oxygen.
