Fat-Soluble Vitamins: Vitamin D (D3 Serum) and Vitamin K (MK-7) | Gabriel Cousens MD


(slow, mystical music) – Okay, so vitamin D. Vitamin E. Vitamin K. What’s the other one? – [Voiceover] A. A, right. These are fat soluble,
and they actually work together as a team. How much is of the team? Literally, they all affect certain gene patterns, the same gene pattern. They’re all working and affecting it. That’s how much of a team they are. D is getting a lot of press these days. Vitamin D is a tremendous immune stimulator, and moderator. In the immune systems it’s vitamin D receptors are just all
over the immune system. Some people estimate if we
have adequate vitamin D, 70%, it helps protect
against 70% of cancer. Of all types. That’s a pretty good immune
statement right there, isn’t it? 70%? I would say that’s pretty good. It also helps with mental functioning. It helps protect against senility. It helps with bone. But not as directly, see, without K, Vitamin E brings in it but it will deposit calcium anywhere. One of the worst places is they, it deposits calcium in
the arteries, right? K says, “No.” K directs where the calcium for D goes. It brings it into the bones. In other words, you need K to direct, the best K is MK7, we do carry it, and it’s really, what? – [Voiceover] No, and doctors
do exactly the opposite when you have like a, when your blood is, they tell you not to take any formulas, not eat any lettuce, and (voice muffled) and you’re saying it’s the opposite ’cause then there’s gonna
be more calcium deposits. – Right. K directs D. The calcium. – [Voiceover] You mentioned MK7? That was the name? – MK7, it’s a British spy agency, right? – [Voiceover] Yeah, exactly. – MK7 is the specific form of vitamin K that’s the most potent
and the most active. And we do carry it and it is in a capsule. Okay. K2 you get from the more
vegetable, you know, just eating vegetables. But it doesn’t, it helps
more with clotting, anti-clotting, you know, or it acts as a coagulant. But we’re talking MK7,
which is really about directing the calcium. Vitamin D is important in the regulating the secretion of insulin. Low D has been associated with
Type I and Type II Diabetes. So with the diabetes we
really make an effort to make sure people
get adequate vitamin D. It also has a hormone, calcitonin, and what that does is it kind of regulates a kind of growth, and it also, the balance of calcium and phosphorous in the system. So that’s just again,
another thing that happens with it. D seems to be very important in protecting against
neurological disorders. The most famous of that
is multiple sclerosis, which is something that
tends to happen more in colder, less sunny climates. Sun is the main way of
getting vitamin D, right? – [Voiceover] But we have
a lot of sun in here, (voice is muffled) – Yeah, well, there’s reasons for that. But just hold on, you know. I want to get back to,
vitamin D is made by the sun. If you get 20 minutes a day of
sunlight for three days, you’re gonna start taking in about 20,000 units a day. Then what is really happening
when you ask that question, is maybe people aren’t
getting so much sunlight. Maybe we’re too much inside
playing with our computers. But here’s where we go to protocol. The best levels are between 50 and 70, in the blood. To really see how you’re doing, you really need to check it a few times. Now there is a question of how much should you have? 400 milligrams, 10,000 units, and I think it’s variable. Myself, I had been taking 10,000, and I was in low-normal vitamin D. Well, I don’t want to be low-normal. I want to be optimal. So now I’m taking more. Now that’s more than they
recommend, now what’s the point? I’m out in the sun. I get 20 minutes of full
body sun all the time, I live in Arizona. So what’s happening is
there’s a very big variation, and the only way to do it correctly is get your sunlight, take your
certain amount of vitamin D, and get a blood test. – [Voiceover] Trial and
error, trial and error until you find– – Until you find the right level. It takes about three blood
tests to figure it out. The other thing is, people with darker skin
absorb less vitamin D. So if you’re Afro-American
you will be getting less vitamin D from the
sun as a protective device, but, and that’s so good, so they actually need to supplement more. And I think you want to look at Israel, you have more dark-skinned people, they’re more likely to have a lower vitamin D because
of the genetic part of that. So that’s part of the answer too. Computers and darker skin. (laughing in audience) audience members speaking over each other) What I was saying is 20 minutes a day should be sufficient. For myself, I get 20 minutes, I’m out in the sun without
much clothes, or in clothes, 20 minutes, and I take
vitamin D supplement, and my vitamin D was low-normal. So what I’m trying to say, there’s that little
bit of trial and error. So the protocol is, get a standard, take 10,000
and do what you’re doing, and then measure it and see where you stand. Oh, it’s too low, it’s
too high, well fine. It’s too high, I take less. – [Voiceover] If it’s
too high what can happen? – Well, if you’re, you can get a calcification
in your tissues. Excess calcification. And you can get a little, I don’t want to say
vitamin D toxicity, but 10,000 is a safe place. People basically, somewhere between 2,000 and 10,000 is pretty safe, where you should be
doing your experimenting. – [Voiceover] How do you
translate that to drops, or– – Well, in the DC we
have it’s 2,200 per drop. – [Voiceover] Drop or dose? – Drop. – [Voiceover] Per drop. Okay, so what would be, – Well, 10 drops is gonna give you 10 or 11,000. – [Voiceover] So 10 drops a day would– – I would start at five a day. – [Voiceover] Five drops a day. – And that’s gonna give you about 10,000 units. – One drop is 2,000. – [Voiceover] One drop is 2,000. – Five is 10,000. – [Voiceover] I thought
is was a thousand, but… – [Voiceover] All my life
my mother is telling me to keep away from the sun in
the hottest hour or whatever, and less than a year ago somebody said that the only way you
can absorb the vitamin D is if the sun is
perpendicular to the ground, which is a bad hour? – No, I don’t think it’s like that. If you just get out, obviously the more when
the sun’s hot the better, you know, if you live, in US they say between San
Francisco and Baltimore, which is kind of the lower part of the United States in a way, above that line everybody should take a vitamin D supplement. What’s the point? You’ve gotta be out in the sun, when you’re northern, if
you’re up near Lebanon it’s gonna be not as much sun quality as down here. But still, you know, between 10 and 2 is reasonably good. But the truth is, it’s kinda, you have to do
trial and error, really. And the only way you’re gonna get accurate is do a blood spot-test. You can just take a, we have at the Tree, you just prick your finger and you do the blood spots and then they… – [Voiceover] Like a litmus
paper or something like that? – No, it’s paper, and
you have to send it in. Or they can draw your blood but it’s more expensive to do it that way. – [Voiceover] The vitamin D, it’s just vitamin D, the drops, or vitamin K?
– [Dr. Cousens] Yeah. – [Dr. Cousens] No, just D. The D and K don’t really come together. – [Voiceover] So where do we get MK7? – We carry it. And you just need one capsule a day. (audience members mumbling) And that’s gonna get you depositing the calcium in your bones, not in your tissues or in your heart. That’s not what you want. Yeah. – [Voiceover] If you could
speak more about the dosage because I don’t think people are familiar with the dosage here. In Israel you have the
drop, which is 400 units, – [Voiceover] 200. – [Voiceover] 200 to 400. Most people they don’t take it all, or they take maybe two
drops which are 800, and there is a law in Israel now, they took off the shelves
the one with 1,000. Now there is only 400. It is not allowed to take, – Yeah. – [Voiceover] that was
on the shelf, the 1000. – [Voiceover] They’re
not allowed on the shelf. – [Voiceover] Okay, and so they’re very, the people that they take vitamin D, maximum, with doctor
order, 2,000 to 2,500. Maybe and you’re talking about 10,000. – It’s being totally safe. According to the research. It’s not revolutionary, it’s, the world research says mostly people to take 10,000
it’s gonna be totally safe. Again, the only way
you’re gonna know is what? – [Voiceover] Blood test. – Get the blood test. Then you’ll know where you stand. The high-normal is 50 to 70. You need to be 50 to 70
to get optimal effect. That’s it. Now, is there a
philosophical point to this? Yeah, there is. (audience member mumbles) Wait a minute, please. Here’s the thing I want you to understand. If you’re getting really
adequate D what does that mean? Means you’re gonna have
a great immune system. It means you’re gonna be really healthy. It means you’re not gonna, you know your chance of getting
cancer is greatly cut down. Your chance of getting
diabetes is greatly cut down. You’re gonna have less colds and flus. You’re actually gonna be healthy. – [Voiceover] So they
don’t want that. (laughs) – I just left it with that. (loud laughing in audience) So they’re always trying to find the minimum for what? Hypothetical minimum. And we know, the research is very clear. 50 to 70 is what you need. And what, that’s it, it’s
not that complicated. So whether you need 15,000, or 10,000 or 5,000 or 1,000, that is what you have to figure out. Now, one of the things you look at is, if people used vitamin D, you wouldn’t need, you don’t
need vaccinations anyway, but 0 to 4% of vaccinations work. And some of that research
was done in Israel, believe it or not. You know, for the flu, it’s 0 to 4% effective. Well, I can tell you, the vitamin D is a whole lot more effective than that, and a whole lot more safe. So you gotta understand what is really happening
in the world today. There is an explicit movement against anything that’s (mumbles) Why, you know, you take vitamin D. There’s no, you shouldn’t even think about taking vaccinations. Do you see what I’m trying to say? So there is definitely
a struggle going on, and it’s one about those who
want health, culture of life, and those who want you to be in ill health so you can have to buy their medicines. That’s really what’s going on
without a lot of management. Now you had a question. (slow, mystical music)

    I thought K1 was for blood clotting?

  • Mary G

    This guy is wrong! K1 relates to clotting. K2 delivers calcium to bones, etc.

  • Frank From Upstate NY

    Facts: Vitamin K is decreased when one needs to take Warfarin for "thinning out blood"…as Vit. K is contraindicated or works in opposition to Warfarin….in "making blood clottable…or "more clottable".

    Second point: Vit. K2 is NOT the same as Vit. K. There are a bunch of Analogues of Vitamin K2, as well – notably: MK4 & MK7.

    So the speaker was wrong is stating that "Vitamin K's most active form is MK7"…he meant to say that (as far as we now know)….it's Vitamin K2's most active form; having the longest known half-life.

    K….I just saved two million lives….where's my money?

    Kidding….physicians don't many times have a clue…and we revere them for their' lack of current knowledge. If someone knows more than 99% of the population about health issues; like physicians…that doesn't mean much, when the 99% know nothing at all.

    Was this guy drunk when he videoed this?
