What do the 25 and the D mean in 25(OH)D? I think I know what the D stands for. Dextro?

25(OH)D is the storage form of vitamin d3.
When UVB from sunshine or tanning lamps penetrates the skin surface the cholesterol molecules (7 dehydrocholesterol) are converted to cholecalciferol, This is the basic form of vitamin d3 and has a half life of just 24 hours.
most of this cholecalciferol will be hydroxylated to 25(OH)D also called calcidiol and that has a half -life of around 15 days. That form is then converted to the hormonal form calcitriol which is used straight away and has a half life of about 16 hours.
The cholecalciferol form is far more important than was previously thought. There are cells throughout the body from the oral cavity through to the colon that can take the basic cholecalciferol form and convert it to the active hormonal form. So the anti cancer actions of vitamin d3 may be starting from the moment the cholecalciferol is created or the supplement enters the mouth.
This is why it's so important to take vitamin d3 every day and not weekly and only use the natural form made in skin Cholecalciferol, not ergocalciferol vitamin d2.

Of course, proponents of "evidence-based medicine" will say that there are no non-conventional ways to cure or treat cancer. They will also make fun of these approaches using ad hominem.

Why are there not more studies on the effects of eating healthy on cancer? Is it because there are studies on this topic and that they are being suppressed? You would think that someone curing their cancer with an "unorthodox" approach would be widely known. Or as Kevin Trudeau would say, "Why isn't it front page news?".
A guy I used to do business with like twenty years ago had cancer. Back then he told me he was treating it with Burdock root and Macrobiotics diet. I check just now and it looks like he is still alive:

Just lucky? A fluke? Or does he know more than the rest of us?

Gerson Therapy/diet has been proven successful time and again. Food causes cancer, and cures cancer.

For me, I attended a lecture on pycnogenol back in 1995 when it was arriving in the U.S. and we were told it MAY prevent cancer(s)...I took it a year and got rid of allergy sinus issues and then found grape seed extract and have been taking it for 22 yrs. The powerful grape SEED is used in cancer research of colon, breast, prostate and skin. I'm 80 soon and so far I'm good. I have so much faith in that Grape (SEED).

I posted a reply hours ago and it does not show up...wonder why? The Grape SEED the powerful king of foods.

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2728696/

This info covers: breast, colon, prostate and skin cancers.


Personally, I've been taking Pycnogenol and then Grape SEED Extract since 1995.

Thanks I read thru rules and see that we are NOT permitted to post where we buy supps etc...but with research papers and articles I didn't think this one would be a problem. I've been taking Grape Seed Ex for so long and there are literally hundreds of info articles etc on this I believe miracle healing FOOD.

For almost 80, I have so much improved health and NO MORE allergies and sins issues, I was the Queen of sore throats and allergy issues prior to 1995.
