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.


How Sunshine and Vitamin D Can Help You Eliminate Mercury

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.

Dr. Mercola’s Comments:

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 in my upcoming Inner Circle interview with him; if you understand 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.

Consider this; In the summertime, when you put on your bathing suit and sunbathe for 30 minutes, your body produces about 20,000 IUs of vitamin D; as much as exists in 200 glasses of milk, or the equivalent of about 50 multivitamins!

Meanwhile, the current RDA for vitamin D, developed by the Food and Nutrition Board at the Institute of Medicine of The National Academies, is miserably insufficient as it is only:

  • 200 IU for people aged 14-50
  • 400 IU for people aged 51-70
  • 600 IU for people over 71

Folks, there’s simply no way to reap any benefit whatsoever from these abysmally low amounts.

It is BIOPHOTON OF THE SUN that give the clue of producing the very important vit.D for our health. This BIOPHOTON ENTERING OUR EYES BY SUNGAZING during SUNRISE until 7 O’CLOCK (THE VERY SAFE MOMENT) and the REFLEXION BIOPHOTON entering our eyes during the days. These biophoton activiting the DNA OF OUR WHOLE BODY IN PRODUCING VITAMIN D but CERTAINLY NOT OUR SKIN CELLS
