Vitamin D and Calcium Deficiency plays a major role in obesity and metabolism

Before reading about calcium and vitamin D deficiency, which did not realize that calcium plays an important role in regulating metabolism. In one of Stephanie Seneff of my article on obesity, argued that calcium deficiency plays an important role, since calcium is necessary for the release of insulin from the pancreas and for glucose uptake by muscles. Obesity is strongly associated with both calcium deficiency and insulin resistance, and argue that fat cells make up when inserted into the energy chain. They take upon themselves the task of converting glucose into fat, and muscles are programmed to prefer fat heavily on glucose as an energy source. In the process, calcium and vitamin D accumulate and cause measurable deficiencies in these important nutrients in the blood serum.

is likely that some children with ADHD may suffer from calcium deficiency as well, mainly as a result of vitamin D deficiency, a syndrome in epidemic proportions in the US (vitamin D deficiency Epidmemic) . Probably the most important nutritional role of vitamin D is its ability to promote both calcium absorption in the intestine and calcium transport across membranes, a process which is very important in many aspects of cellular metabolism and brain function. children with ADHD tend to be stunted in growth, and their levels of growth hormone are abnormally low. The extension of the length of a bone requires an enormous amount of calcium. Therefore, to maintain short bones, calcium would have gone in bone growth may be diverted to ensure an adequate supply of insulin and an absorption mechanism efficient glucose muscle cells and fat.

Could it be that children with ADHD calcium levels were also sacrificed in the brain in order to ensure sufficient calcium for efficient glucose metabolism, which is very essential when the body is mainly based on the glucose as an energy source. The evidence that calcium channels in the brain are important for memory comes the surprising result of a study that included 1,268 people who were being treated for high blood pressure (calcium channel blockers and memory). The study found that people taking calcium channel blockers to lower blood pressure lower scores on memory tests than people who use other medicines to lower blood pressure. Studies using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) verified brain damage in the white matter of the brains of people who use calcium channel blockers.

If children with ADHD are deficient in calcium in the brain, but are also less likely able to use ketone bodies as an energy source in the brain. This conclusion comes indirectly from studies with Alzheimer’s patients. It has been found that the brains of Alzheimer’s patients are deficient in the ability to use glucose as fuel and as a result, the control mechanisms of regulation led to an increase of supply of calcium in the brain, that It plays an essential role in the metabolism of ketone bodies [13]. This allows them to efficiently use ketone bodies instead of glucose as a fuel source. The opposite of this observation is that the reduction of calcium in the brain may interfere with the metabolism of ketone bodies, leaving them even more vulnerable to situations of glucose levels in blood reduced brain.

own vitamin D plays an important role in brain function in addition to its influence on calcium, as deduced the existence of a wide distribution of vitamin D receptors throughout the brain [20] (vitamin D and brain). Vitamin D also affects the proteins in the brain which are directly involved in learning and memory, and motor control. It may be that, for some children with ADHD, vitamin D deficiency is still the main cause of their symptoms.
