UK Against Fluoridation

Further to my GP visit

I recently wrote of my experience visiting my GP. (27 July )I mentioned that I was prescribed Calcium & Vit D chewable tablets to prevent loss of calcium while taking steroids to treat Polymyalgia.

On consulting Google I found you need to take K2 and magnesium.

I have now got a one tablet solution from NutRIZing.

They sent a PDF attachment to explain why the three are needed. Extract below.

I know two cases of people on steroids and neither have been told about countering the danger to their bones. Why are not all patients told this as standard advice?

If it is true that calcium either goes to the bones or the arteries and K2 directs calcium to the bones then it is scandalous patients are not aware. Even more shocking is if doctors are unaware and worst of all if they know and don't prescribe it.

If any of this is wrong email me: billedmunds@gmail.com

Vitamin D is important for overall good health and strong and healthy bones. It’s also an important factor in making sure our muscles, heart, lungs and brain work well and that our body can fight
infection. Vitamin D helps to regulate the amount of calcium and phosphate in the body, and these nutrients are needed to keep our
bones and teeth healthy. A lack of vitamin D can lead to bone deformities such as rickets in children, and bone pain and tenderness
as a result of a condition called osteomalacia (softness of bones) in adults.
Vitamin K is a group of structurally similar, fat-soluble vitamins that the human body requires for complete synthesis of certain proteins
that are prerequisites for blood coagulation. It is also important for controlling binding of calcium in bones and other tissues.
The vitamin K-related modification of the proteins allows them to bind calcium ions, which they cannot do otherwise. Low levels of vitamin K also weaken bones and promote calcification of arteries and other soft tissues.
Inadequate levels of vitamin K2 can lead to arteriosclerosis, a condition in which arteries become hard and less flexible, and osteoporosis. These conditions are the result of excessive calcium in the blood rather than in the bones. And finally, Magnesium is an important mineral involved in over 300 different processes in the body, including the ability to make and use ATP, the body’s main form of energy. It plays a very important role in proper Vitamin D activity and function, and also helps to maintain calcium balance.
