The Importance Of Vitamin D

The Sun is so important to us. Let me explain.

When we are exposed to sunlight for a period of time and we see our skin getting darker or tanned, what is happening in the skin? The sun is making a hormone in the skin upon contact called Colecalciferol. Colecalciferol is a hormone made in the skin by our contact with the elements of the sun which is UVB light. This hormone then converts itself in the liver to another hormone that is called Vitamin D. Yes vitamin D is a hormone. It is not a vitamin but a hormone.

We were originally were led to believe that vitamin D was for just for our bones. We now know that not just for our bones which is very important but all over our brain we have vitamin D receptors, all over our lungs we vitamin D receptors, all over our muscles we have vitamin D receptors, your brain, lungs, skin, liver, heart and muscles all need vitamin D which remember is a hormone made by the sun. WHY?

Vitamin D will connect itself to another Vitamin called vitamin B5 (Pantothenic acid) which is one of the most important vitamins for human life. It is necessary for making blood cells, and helps you covert food you eat into energy. When this connection happens they produce a neurotransmitter called Acetylcholine (ACh), which is made from nerve cells to send signals to other cells, such as neurons, muscle cells and gland cells. It also regulates the minute-to-minute changes in heart rate. What else does ACh do? It gives you the ability to sleep and repair, and it also gives you the ability for all of you automatic functions in the body to work. Such as your heart, breathing, nervous system. ACh is on the smooth muscle fabrics of your lungs. There is right now as you read this trillions or work and chemical interactions going on in the body all due to vitamin D.

Vitamin D helps with your balance, it also helps you to loss weight.

So how do we get high levels of this neurotransmitter? By going outside!

People who don’t go outside are prone to get sick, and depression sets in. You produce less ACh that makes you active, and sleep well etc. You produce less vitamin D because you are not getting enough sunlight. So basically sunlight is nutrition.


This would lower your levels of Acetylcholine, your neurotransmitter, lower your levels of vitamin D, lower your levels of natural interaction with the sun, trees and sun light. Then your immune system will become weaker.

So remember every time that we are put into a lockdown our immune system will get weaker. Vitamin D deficiency affects your fertility. If we stay inside we are more susceptible to get Pneumonia because less ACh is being made to protect the smooth fabrics of your lungs.

Also if we wear a mask we lower our oxygen content and increase our carbon dioxide content which is unhealthy to our bodies. Masks do not protect you. So we need to go outside. At least 1 hour per day.

ACh operates throughout the frontal lobe of the brain. People who cannot focus or children with ADHD, ADD is because they are not getting enough sunlight to produce vitamin D that leads to the neurotransmitter so that they can get cognitive focus. People who cannot focus is because they have low ACh. Anxiety disorder and brain fog is also due to a low ACh.

Dairy causes inhibition of the production of the vitamin D going through its phases to produce ACh. Cheese, milk, butter and yogurt are not good for us. Dairy is the number 1 cause of the deficiency of ACh. It also interferes with our digestive trac.

Foods to eat to help produce Choline that helps to produce the neurotransmitter also is avocado, grapes, dates, prunes, citrus fruits, olives, rapeseed oil, avocado oil, olive oil.

Vitamin D and ACh also work together to populate and make your cell membrane receptors, so vitamin D is a synthesizer of protein, it helps make what’s on the receptor of the cell to strengthen our immune system.

With low Vitamin D and ACh. the pancreas could start to fail, heart rate could slow down, digestive system will become disrupted.

Another way to make more of this neurotransmitter is Vitamin D and Coenzyme A (Vitamin B5) which is found in nearly all vegetables and fruits.

The human body is a self-repairing organism, it is so complex, but it needs Vitamin D. It helps you sleep, why because it helps the body to repair. The ACh will help to put the body in what we call REM sleep. It paralyze your muscles so that the body can self-repair.

Sun gazing helps to activate Vitamin A which is also important.

So I hope that this has helped you. See you in 2 weeks.
