SOD or Superxoide Dismutase is an anti-oxidant that exists in your cells. In fact is the most potent chemical system that can revitalize and reduce the rate of cell and tissue degeneration and destruction due to free radicals. It is considered a life extension nutrient.

Free Radicals

Free radicals are constantly being created in your cells and in tissue as oxygen is used up. Oxygen metabolism generates free radicals and SOD helps to keep these oxygen free radicals from accumulating. Free Radicals have been accused and convicted of a variety of illness and diseases that end up in death – inflammatory, immune, and cardiovascular. Because of its anti-oxidant reduction effects, SOD promotes and extends life as has been shown in scientific research. As with most natural body nutrients, SOD decreases as you age and you need to take a SOD supplement to keep its active level up.

Vitamin D is not talked about much and is not promoted like many of the other minerals or vitamins. Yet this vitamin is on the list as one of them most important vitamins you should be concern with. Most people are deficient in vitamin D, yet it’s a vitamin that can be created
through your skin and it comes absolutely free. Many doctors still believe that vitamin D can be toxic and causes hypercalcemia - elevated calcium levels in the blood - and this idea is still being perpetuated by many medical researchers.

Hypercalcemia Causes

At the Mayo Clinic Website they say “The main cause of hypercalcemia is over activity in one or more of the four glands that regulate calcium in your body (parathyroid glands). Women older than 50 are most likely to develop hypercalcemia, caused by overactive parathyroid glands. Other causes of hypercalcemia include cancer, certain other medical disorders, some medications and excessive use of calcium and vitamin D supplements.”
However it is believed by naturopathic doctors that hypercalcemia is caused by just the opposite – lack of vitamin D. This vitamin helps you absorb calcium and other minerals in the small intestine. When your body is out of balance and lacks minerals such as calcium, your body will pull calcium out of your bones. It does this when you have an acid body so that it can neutralize acid and supply your organs, when they are calcium deficient.

Acid Body

Having an acid body is a deadly condition especially if your body pH is below 6.0 or 5.5, since your body is fighting for its life and is pulling calcium from wherever it can get it to stop the deadly effects of acid. The result is you have a lot of calcium in your blood and bones that are losing their density.

Sunshine and Vitamin D

Lack of sunshine and sufficient calcium in your diet can also cause hypercalcemia and this is one thing doctors don’t talk about. Sunshine produces vitamin D in your skin, which ends up in your small intestine and allows you to absorb large quantities of calcium, so that your body does not have to pull it out of your bones.
Sunshine also activates the pituitary gland to instruct the parathyroid gland to produce the hormone calcitonin. Calcitonin prevents your body from stealing calcium from your bones to feed your body.

Vitamin D toxicity

Even in the decades past was it known that vitamin D was not toxic. In 1937 the Streck Report done at the University of Chicago Medical facility took dozens of doctors and scientist 9 years to complete, concluded that large doses of vitamin D were not toxic. Subsequent studies have also shown this to be the case. Studies have shown that taking 1200 IU and 2000 IU of vitamin D to be non toxic. The skin, in sunlight, is capable of creating 3,000,000 IU of vitamin D per day when all the skin is exposed.

Vitamin D Reduces Cancer Risk

New studies show that those people that live in sunnier areas, which create more vitamin D, are less likely to die from various cancers than people who live colder and stormy climates. It is recommend that you spend at least 30 minutes in the sun everyday to get around 10,000 to 18,000 IU of vitamin D and to activate your parathyroid to produce calcitonin. Those people that spend 7 hours a day working in the sun create about 500,000 IU of vitamin D each day. If you don’t spend much time in the sun, you would do well to take 1,000 to 2,000 IU of vitamin D. You need the vitamin D to absorb the calcium and minerals that keep your body from becoming acidic and forming terminal diseases.
