What is Vitamin D?

Vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol) is a pre-hormone that has long been thought to play an important role in regulating body levels of calcium and phosphorus, and in mineralization of bone.

Vitamin D is metabolized into a potent steroid hormone called calcitriol. More recently, it has become clear that receptors for calcitriol, are present in a wide variety of cells, and that calcitriol, has biologic effects which extend far beyond control of mineral metabolism.

It is believed that vitamin D and its metabolites, play an important part in the regulation of genes involved in cell growth, differentiation and proliferation.

These important properties have prompted researchers to investigate if there is a link between vitamin D deficiency and cancer.

Vitamin D is NOT actually a Vitamin.

Contrary to common belief, Vitamin D is NOT actually a vitamin at all. "Vitamins" by definition, are nutrients that CANNOT be produced by the body, but are NECESSARY for the proper functioning of the body's tissues and organs. Although Vitamin D is ESSENTAL for calcium and phosphorus metabolism, and IS required for the normal development of healthy bones and teeth, since it IS produced by our bodies (when our skin is exposed to ultraviolet rays from the sun) technically, it can NOT be considered a vitamin.

Vitamin D was originally classified as a vitamin because of the findings of a British researcher in 1920, who raised dogs in the winter (without any exposure to sunlight or ultraviolet rays). He found that the animals developed rickets (a bone disease) unless fed a diet containing fish-liver oils. He wrongly concluded that the fat soluble substance needed for developing bones was not found naturally in the body and so was a "vitamin". In 1924 researchers discovered that exposing skin to sunlight resulted in the body's own production of this so-called "fat-soluble vitamin". Despite the misnomer, for nutritional and public health reasons, vitamin D continues to be officially classified as a "vitamin".

There are two basic types of vitamin D . . .
Or are there ?

If one sifts through the published studies and literature about Vitamin D, one will see many inconsistencies and contradictions which lead to much confusion on the subject. As mentioned above, referring to Vitamin D as a vitamin in the first place is a misnomer. If that weren't confusing enough, there is also the convention of referring to 2 types of Vitamin D . . .
Vitamin D2 and Vitamin D3.
  1. In humans, Vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol) is converted from it's basic building block (cholesterol) when ultraviolet light hits Pro-Vitamin D (a squalene metabolite) in the cells of our skin. Vitamin D3 does not have significant biological activity, rather, must be metabolized, first by the liver and then by the kidneys into the converted, fully-active, hormonal form of Vitamin D (calcitriol).

  2. In plants, Vitamin D2 (ergocalciferol) is converted from it's basic building block (ergosterol) when ultraviolet light from the sun hits the leaves of the plant. Though frequently referred to as Vitamin D2, ergocalciferol is NOT really Vitamin D, but rather a Vitamin D analog. It was a patented drug before the patent ran out. It does not occur in humans, is only half as potent as cholecalciferol, has been associated with most of the Vitamin D toxitity cases . . . and should be avoided.

Vitamin D3 amounts are most often referred to in iu (international units) though sometimes referred to in mg. 1 mg of vitamin D3 is equal to 40,000 iu (1 mcg of D3 is equal to 40 iu) . . . so then . . . each 5,000 iu capsule of Dmax is equal to 0.125 mg (125 mcg) of vitamin D3.

The IOM (Institute of Medicine) of the National Academy has not established an RDA (Recommended Dietary Allowances) for Vitamin D, only an AI (Adequate Intake) for otherwise healthy persons to avoid metabolic bone disease. Although the current AI for Vitamin D is around 200 iu/day recent research suggests 5,000 iu/day of cholecalciferol is optimum for those who do not have regular, year-round sun exposure.

Other researchers including Robert Barefoot have suggested doses as high as 30,000 iu/day.

Most brands on the market contain 200 to 400 iu of Vitamin D per capsule. D-Max contains a whopping 5,000 iu per capsule.

Vitamin D Toxicity Fear Unwarranted

According to John Jacob Cannell, MD, (Executive Director of the Vitamin D Council) "Fear of vitamin D toxicity is unwarranted, and such unwarranted fear, bordering on hysteria, is rampant in the medical profession. Even Ian Monroe, the chair of the relevant IOM committee, wrote to the Journal to compliment Vieth's work (see below) and to promise his findings will be considered at the time of a future Institute of Medicine review.

In 1999, Vieth indirectly asked the medical community to produce any evidence 10,000 units of vitamin D a day was toxic, saying "Throughout my preparation of this review, I was amazed at the lack of evidence supporting statements about the toxicity of moderate doses of vitamin D." He added: "If there is published evidence of toxicity in adults from an intake of 250 ug (10,000 IU) per day, and that is verified by the 25(OH)D concentration, I have yet to find it."

Physician ignorance about vitamin D toxicity is widespread. Like most medication, cholecalciferol is certainly toxic in excess, and, like Coumadin, is used as a rodent poison for this purpose. Animal data indicates signs of toxicity can occur with ingestion of 0.5 mg/kg (20,000 IU/kg ), while the oral LD50 (the dose it takes to kill half the animals) for cholecalciferol in dogs is about 88 mg/kg, or 3,520,000 IU/kg. This would be equivalent to a 110 pound adult taking 176,000,000 IU or 440,000 of the 400 unit cholecalciferol capsules. Vieth reports human toxicity probably begins to occur after chronic daily consumption of approximately 40,000 IU/day (100 of the 400 IU capsules).

Cholecalciferol Is Safe, Ergocalciferol is not

Although there are documented cases of pharmacological overdoses from ergocalciferol, the only documented case of pharmacological, not industrial, toxicity from cholecalciferol we could find in the literature was intoxication from over the counter supplement called Prolongevity. On closer inspection, it seemed more like an industrial accident but is interesting because it gives us some idea of the safety of cholecalciferol. The capsules consumed contained up to 430 times the amount of cholecalciferol contained on the label (2,000 IU). The man had been taking between 156,000B2,604,000 IU of cholecalciferol a day (equivalent to between 390B6,500 of the 400 unit capsules) for two years. He recovered uneventfully after the proper diagnosis, treatment with steroids and sunscreen.

It is true that a few people may have problems with high calcium due to undiagnosed vitamin D hypersensitivity syndromes such as primary hyperparathyroidism, granulomatous disease or occult cancers but a blood calcium level, PTH, 25(OH)D, and calcitriol level should help clarify the cause of the hypersensitivity. Although D can be toxic in excess, the same can be said for water."

It is very important to note that Vitamin D should NOT be taken by anyone who has primary hyperparathyroidism, sarcoidosis, granulomatous disease, or other conditions that cause high blood calcium.
