What about Hormone-
Testing is the Key to Hormone-
In order to have intelligent conversations about your vitamin D status, we ask that you complete 4 lab tests. Vitamin D has become so main stream and most of us do not understand the dangers to over supplementing. It is only because we care and want you to make an informed choice.
1. Magnesium RBC (Red Blood Cell): it’s the KEY catalyst for creating “Storage” and “Active” forms of this Hormone…
2. 25(OH)D blood test: it’s the measure of the “Storage” form, the precursor to “Active” form of this Hormone…
3. 1,25(OH)2 D3 blood test: it’s the measure of the “Active” form of this Hormone…
4. “Ionized” Serum Calcium blood test (NOT a standard serum test!): given that Calcitriol’s JOB in the body is to put MORE Calcium into the blood stream, it only makes sense to know exactly how much you have there already, right?…
So, please, look BEFORE you take a “D”ive!
The Vitamin D Controversy
In this article Morley Robbins explains the path Hormone-
Vitamin D Deficiency = Mg Deficiency. Period.
Magnesium plays an important role in helping your body’s Vitamin D status. Make sure your getting enough Maggie along with animal based Vitamin A throughout the day to raise your D naturally.
Understanding all the minerals and systems that Hormone-
Simple Explanation of Hormone-
(Vitamin D is really a hormone.)
Simply put, there are two Seesaws with Hormone-
o Seesaw #1: the balance of Active Hormone-
o Seesaw #2: the balance of Calcium to Magnesium... They, too, ride of a rail together..
Now, this is the most important part:
o Magnesium & Storage Hormone-
So, when Storage Hormone-
1) Magnesium is likely deficient or certainly Low...
2) Active Hormone-
And, when Storage Hormone-
How to Get the Tests.
Your doctor can order the four “D” blood test for you and your insurance should cover the cost.
Otherwise, those in the USA can order the tests themselves via requestatest.com.
1. Magnesium RBC -
2. 25(OH)D -
3. 1,25(OH)2 -
4. “Ionized” Serum Calcium
Now, what to do? The “D”ilemna.
”D”angers of isolated vitamin D3.
When ingested, synthetic vitamin D products mobilize calcium from the bones into the bloodstream, producing hypercalcemia, kidney failure, central nervous system depression and heart failure – all signs of parathyroid dysfunction.
Too much taken on a prolonged basis
Kidney potassium wasting
Increased calcium in the blood

The blood is only 5% of the body, 95% is in your cells. This is clearly discussed in chapter 2 and chapter 7 of the Calcium Lie 2.
Magnesium plays an essential role in the synthesis and metabolism of vitamin D
Magnesium plays an essential role in the synthesis and metabolism of vitamin D and magnesium supplementation substantially reversed the resistance to vitamin D treatment in patients with magnesium-
We hypothesized that dietary magnesium alone, particularly its interaction with vitamin D intake, contributes to serum 25-

Storage D levels:
No benefit above 21.
In an article published online in The American Journal of Medicine, Amer and Rehan Qayyum, M.D., M.H.S., also of Johns Hopkins, describe their review of data from more than 10,000 participants in the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) from 2001 to 2004. They matched those data with mortality data from the National Death Index through Dec. 2006.
When they looked at deaths from all causes and cardiovascular disease specifically, those with blood levels of 21 nanograms per milliliter of 25-
In research published in January 2012 in the American Journal of Cardiology, Amer and Qayyum found that increasing levels of vitamin D in the blood are linked with lower levels of a popular marker for cardiovascular inflammation -
