Vitamin D is a Hormone NOT a Vitamin!

Vitamin D is both Vitamin and Hormone. It is not just one of the those two, it exists in many forms in our bodies. The authors take a narrow view and say all problems are down to Magnesium deficiency. All problems in all pwMS are not due to magnesium deficiency, just some of them. Please take the time to read through this thread and you will see that other elements may be deficient, for instance Zinc. I take a cheap and quick fix approach to anyone who has problems adsorbing D3 - take a multi-mineral and let the body sort out what it needs. The body will excrete water soluble minerals that are not required.
The issue of Vitamin D requires a big picture answer not a narrow answer, as given in this article. It has lots of useful info but missed the big picture answer on D3.
