Vitamin D

DSonne tut gut Vitamin D?ie Bedeutung von Vitamin D wird aktuell unterschätzt. Jüngste Forschungen belegen, dass Vitamin D nicht nur für den Calcium- und daher Knochenstoffwechsel von Bedeutung ist, sondern weit darüber hinaus für ein funktionierendes Immunsystem zuständig ist. Durch die in nördlichen Breitengraden allgemeine Verminderung der Vitamin D Spiegel, ist eine orale Substitution notwendig. 
Aktuell ist Vitamin D in Dosierungen von 1000 - 2000 iE geeignet, einen verbesserten Schutz gegen Influenza zu gewährleisten.

Grippe tritt meist im Winter auf, bei Sonnenmangel. Das ist eine einfache und bodenständige Beobachtung. Erkrankungsgipfel fällt mit der Phase der niedrigsten Vitamin D Spiegel zusammen.(Februar, März)
In dieser Zeit produziert der Körper weniger Vitamin D, das auch "Sonnen-Schein"-Vitamin genannt wird. Dieses reguliert im Körper mehr als 2000 Gene, auch die, die das Immun-System regulieren, dias wiederum Viren und Bakterien angreift und zerstört. Die Schlussfolgerung liegt nahe: Ein im Körper aktiver Grippe-Virus weist auf einen Vitamin-D Mangel hin.

Prävention in Grippe-Zeiten

Möglichst viel Sonne...

Vitamin D Grippe-Vorsorge: 
ca. 5000-10000 Einheiten pro Tag für Erwachsene
Kinder, die Hälfte, 
Übergewichtige, das Doppelte
 - wer es ganu wissen will, kann bei uns einen Bluttest machen, um seinen Spiegel zu wissen (normal in südlichen Ländern ist 60-100 nmol/ml)
Keine Angst vor Überdosierung - das ist neueren Forschungen entsprechend erst ab 10 000 IE möglich. Diese Dosis produziert die menschliche Haut schon nach 30 Minuten Ganzkörpersonnenbad.

Niedrigste Vitamin D Spiegel findet man bei Bewohnern von Altenheimen!

Vitamin D: bei akuter Grippe:
für 3 Tage: 1x täglich 2000 Einheiten p. Kg. Körpergewicht, was eine hohe, jedoch in ihrer Wirkung überprüfte Dosis ist.
Unbedingt mit dem Hausarzt absprechen. *
(Referenz Dr. Carnell/Gründer des Vitamin C Council, Empfehlung Dr. Mercola) 

Zucker meiden, am besten keinen Zucker essen

Viel Knoblauch

Krill-Öl Kapseln täglich (Studie)

Körperübungen

genügend Schlaf

Emotionalen Stress vermeiden

Hände regelmässig, aber nicht exzessiv waschen


Dr. Mercola's Comment on Vitamin D

The mounting scientific discoveries about the tremendous health impact of vitamin D are nothing short of a revolution within the field of medicine. It’s turning out to be so vital for so many of your biological functions that a future revision of the official guidelines on sun exposure is virtually guaranteed. It’s only a matter of time.
But there’s no reason for you to sit around and wait. The evidence is already overwhelming; you absolutely need a certain amount of unprotected, full-body sun exposure if you want to be optimally healthy.
Every week, more research is being published about the health benefits of vitamin D. For example, it’s already been found that vitamin D can prevent or treat:
Infections and inflammation
16 types of cancer
Depression and neurological disorders
Cold and flu
Diabetes
Osteoporosis
Tuberculosis
And that’s the short-short list.
This latest paper published in Trends in Endocrinology and Metabolism describes how scientists are now beginning to realize vitamin D is involved in maintaining the health of your brain as well, as they’ve recently discovered vitamin D receptors in the brain, spinal cord, and central nervous system.
There’s even evidence indicating vitamin D improves your brain’s detoxification process.
Vitamin D helps remove mercury from your body safely by radically increasing the amount of intracellular glutathione.
For those of you who are beginning to wonder whether the multitude of vitamin D discoveries amount to nothing but hype, or perhaps even some sort of scientific error, let me explain how it can be that vitamin D is involved in so many different health aspects. Because if you understand the basic science of vitamin D, then you can understand its true potential.
How Can Vitamin D Be So Influential?
As Dr. Cannell, founder of the Vitamin D Council, explains so well, that vitamin D is not a vitamin, but rather the only known substrate for a powerful repair and maintenance steroid hormone that is involved in numerous functions of your body and organs, then you can begin to see the bigger picture.
Additionally, if you understand that, like all steroid hormones, it regulates your body by turning your genes on or off, and that you have about 2,000 genes that are directly influenced by vitamin D, then you will be able to wrap your mind around the fact that vitamin D may in fact have as many as 2,000 or more mechanisms of action within your body!
This is the fundamental principle that explains why the same substance, vitamin D, can be involved in, and have a major impact on all the diseases of civilization. It all depends on which gene is being up- or down-regulated by the presence, or absence, of vitamin D.
Why the Current Guidelines on Sun Exposure are Catastrophic to Your Health
It has been clearly established that the only way for your body to synthesize vitamin D is in your skin once it’s exposed to ultraviolet rays from the sun. Hence, the current guidelines to avoid sun exposure, and the fervent pushing of sunscreen, are perhaps some of the most misguided and dangerous health recommendations out there.
You simply cannot obtain sufficient amounts of vitamin D from your diet, as you were never designed to swallow vitamin D but get it from the sun.  This would, of course exclude taking a vitamin D supplement, for which the government recommended daily allowance (RDA) is still FAR too low to offer any significant health benefits or contribute to disease reduction.

How Sunshine and Vitamin D Can Help You Eliminate Mercury

Accumulating data have provided evidence that vitamin D is involved in brain function. Vitamin D can inhibit the synthesis of inducible nitric oxide synthase and increase glutathione levels, suggesting a role for the hormone in brain detoxification.
The study shows that vitamin D helps remove mercury from your body safely by radically increasing the amount of intracellular glutathione.
Neuroprotective and immunomodulatory effects of this hormone have also been described in several experimental models, indicating the potential value of vitamin D in helping neurodegenerative and neuroimmune diseases. In addition, vitamin D induces glioma cell death, making the hormone of potential interest in the management of brain tumors.
These results reveal previously unsuspected roles for vitamin D in brain function and suggest possible areas of future research.
