To answer the question, what does vitamin D do, would require an entire medical text book. It used to be thought it was mostly important for calcium absorption. It is responsible for more, much more. Here is an overview list of the most well known vitamin D facts and health benefits of vitamin D. If you did not know, it is essential to take vitamin K2 (MK-7) to get the best benefit from vitamin D.
Vitamin D is technically not a vitamin. It is more appropriately called a steroid.
Vitamin D plays a role in glutathione production in our body. It is a co-factor of GSH, works alone and works in conjunction with other vitamins, minerals and processes in the body.
When you consider the many health benefits of vitamin D, you will be amazed. Simply saying we need to take this or that supplement or vitamin to treat or cure a disease is most likely a con to get people to buy products. The reality is we need a broad assortment of vitamins, minerals and supplements. If you buy any vitamins though, this would be one to get, if you do not get much sun.
If we bought all the so called required vitamins separately, it would bankrupt all but the wealthiest of consumers. Before we tell you the answer to what does vitamin d do, remember that the best source for any need we have is the natural one. The closer to natural the better for our overall health. The best source of vitamin D in most cases is the sun.
Vitamin D is a fat-soluble steroid hormone, which is essential to health. Epidemiological studies suggest it plays a role in autoimmune disease.
It is involved in ...
protecting us from infections.
protecting us from cardiovascular disease.
protecting us from cancer. Melanoma and Vitamin D Study
increased cancer, especially breast, gastrointestinal tract when the vitamin D levels are low.
Vitamin D attaches to the vitamin D receptor (VDR). This results in a number of genes coding other cells to play a role in inhibition of cell regulators. This signals the death of the cancerous cell and stopping the ability of cells to abnormally replicate.
promotes the absorption of calcium.
promotes the absorption of phosphorus.
promotes innate immunity and immune modulation.
promotes neuromuscular health.
the same anti-proliferative effects on melanoma cells as has been demonstrated in other cells.
prevention of rickets in children.
prevention of osteomalacia with a reduced risk of osteopathic fractures.
proliferation and differentiation of the major constituent of the epidermis, the keratinocytes (skin).
Along with calcium, vitamin D helps protect older adults from osteoporosis. Note, we are not suggesting getting calcium supplements. We are not suggesting drinking more milk. We believe the best way to get calcium is the same way cows get it, through the greens we eat. Vitamin D, at least the right kind, helps our bodies to use the calcium to make strong bones.
Vitamin D helps with the modulation of cell growth.
It is involved with neuromuscular and immune function.
It helps with the reduction of inflammation.
Gene encoding proteins that regulate cell reproduction, differentiation, and death are modulated in part by vitamin D.
Many cells have vitamin D receptors.
Some cells play a role in the conversion of vitamin D into substances that the body can use in other ways.

Vitamin d is associated or may have a connection with depressive disorders.
Vitamin D concentrations are associated with global cognitive function, Cognative Disorder Study
Low levels are associated with depression. Depression and Vitamin D
It is hypothesized that schizophrenia and autism are linked to prenatal vitamin D deficiency.
Adult low levels of vitamin D have been associated with adult patients' psychiatric state. Vitamin D and Mental Health

The Way to Make More GSH For Free
Glutathione has a high affinity for water. Simply put, if we are dehydrated our bodies may not make as much as they could. Or, what we do make may be less effective.
Usually there is something more than just being dehydrated. Often there is a condition called fluid and electrolyte imbalance, less than bodies needs. There is a simple, easy and inexpensive way to correct this, allowing your body to produce even more GSH.
The Water Cures Protocol really works. Give it a try today.
It is simple, easy, sustainable and affordable (the salt should cost less than $10 a year).
And like GSH, it will help with over 76 different diseases and conditions.
