How you might double the benefit of your vitamin D

There are many ways to increase the response to the amount of vitamin D you take

    % ? = guess - there is very little data

Here is the summary of Co-factors web page - Aug 2012

Co-factor How Much Benefit BoneBioavailability Balance body Notes
Calcium <750mg Yes probablyYes Avoid getting too much
Magnesium 500mg Yes Yes Yes Very important, big range in bio-availability
Vitamin K2 Yes maybe ?
Vitamin A maybe ? controversy
Boron 5-10mg Yes 25% ?
Silica Yes no ?
Strontium Yes no ? rarely available
Zinc Yesmaybe?


Studies have shown that, taken separately, the changes listed above will increase the benefits to oral vitamin D3 by a total of at least 2X

So far, there is no indication as to the benefits if you have a combination of the above changes

We speculate: 3X?, 4X?

I, Henry Lahore, the admin of VitaminDWIki, did all of the above and seem to have gotten a HUGE (perhaps 60 ng) increase in my Vitamin D blood level

But, some of the increase might have been due to my trying to optimize the vitamin D from the sun

Note: some of the above may also increase the benefits of vitamin D from the skin (sun or UV)

No data - just guess that you will increase the benefit of vitamin D from the skin by:

  • Increasing Magnesium, Cholesterol, Vitamin K2
  • Reducing smoking, weight, cola drinks, vitamin A
