SNPs and vitamins / supplements

Postby LanceS » Wed Mar 18, 2015 7:49 am

It is from Dr. Rhonda Patric, so if you are smarter than her or don't like her, I'm not making you watch ; )

Found a thing or two personally I didn't realize... I kinda tune out after a bit on my Promothease report

Thanks Lance for posting this informative brief video. I need to re-listen to how one SNP(could not find on 23andme) makes you less responsive to estrogen activation of choline. New findings: poor convertor (rs2060793GG) of VitD to the active form, such that blood levels can look higher than they actually are and a poor convertor of plant-based omega3 to EPA (rs1535GG), plus the usual Vitamins B12, B6 and A. All this is so relevant to our dosing. Dr. Patric announced a new Apoe4 video is forthcoming.

I have a hard time coming to terms with that Leiden Longevity Study. Is that really such a big difference in Vitamin D levels? I find it hard to believe that lower Vitamin D levels are preferable.

Rep, I think it would depend if you're a poor convertor to the active form like I am, you would want higher blood levels, probably not addressed in that study.

I have traditionally hit around 50 blood levels. Doctor was astonished very happy. Of course, now I know why! I haven't been able to figure out what to do about it yet.


Ivor gave a good summary of his research into Vitamin D, but it is sort of a "vitamin D matters" not a what should I do if my 1.25 is too low
