High Doses of Vitamin D Can Deplete Magnesium

so today I want to touch on a very
important topic vitamin D you know how important vitamin D is for the immune
system you know how important it is for keeping calcium in the bone you also
know how important it is to decrease inflammation but it’s an immune
modulator so in other words it can control the immune system and a lot of
people are taking a good amount of it every day and that’s very very good
however you need to be aware of this one fact okay if you do large amounts of
vitamin D over a period of time without enough magnesium in your diet let’s say
your magnesium deficient because you don’t consume any vegetables and you
don’t take any magnesium what happens is higher doses of vitamin D intensifies
magnesium deficiencies magnesium works with vitamin D they work together they
share the same enzymes so as you increase vitamin D you could potentially
decrease magnesium magnesium has a very very important function of keeping
calcium from accumulating inside the cells inside the kidney and the arteries
in the joints so it’s very similar to vitamin k2 and the vitamin k2 helps keep
calcium from building up in the soft tissues the magnesium also does that as
well so when you’re taking large amounts of d3 okay without the magnesium you
could end up with potentially kidney stones or calcium buildup in the artery
or calcium in the joints where it should not be magnesium is really necessary
also to activate vitamin D so they work together so if you’re consuming a good
amount of vegetables every day you have nothing to worry about or if you’re
taking a good magnesium supplement you don’t have to worry about it this is
just for the people that are not taking magnesium or not consuming vegetables
and all of a sudden you end up with a health problem because you didn’t
connect the dots and also vitamin B6 is very very important in this
mechanism as well because it too is a cofactor and it helps these to work so
if your diet is fairly healthy you don’t really have to worry about this but if
you’re doing let’s say unhealthy foods or you’re doing dirty keto now and you’re
not somehow getting enough b6 that could be another problem as well
b6 works together with these two nutrients I think the biggest danger is
if you’re not taking enough magnesium and you’re a stone former and you take a
lot of vitamin D because you have low back pain or something like that over a
long period of time you could increase your risk of kidney stones I’m just
bringing this point up if you’re in this situation so you can actually supply
your body with enough magnesium if you’re consuming at least 7 cups of
vegetables a day you have nothing to worry about that’s gonna be enough
magnesium most of the magnesium is in leafy greens it’s in some nuts but it’s
the at the center of chlorophyll and that’s the green of the plant if you’ve
been watching my videos and applying my information which I’m sure you are 100%
of the time you have nothing to worry about
and if you haven’t seen my video on magnesium I put it right here check it

  1. We need some numbers as to what is high vitamin D and what ratio of D to magnesium we need. This feels rushed , sorry.

  2. p.s. there are lots of supplements out there that combine K2 & D3…. usually it's suggested you take 2 or 3 capsules to get a full dose.. .
    each capsule has around 5,000 IU's of D3 so 3 gets you 15,000 IU's.

  3. Can you do a video on weigh gain caused by using B-complex supplements ? Is it true, can you actually gain weight or opposite?

  4. I no longer have a gal bladder so absorbing nutrients is an issue so I have had an issue with maintaining my levels of vitamin D. I have recently increased my levels of D and shortly after stared taking magnesium and zinc.

  5. YES.. Hormones in chemical form depletes magnesium.. I do wish you would interview Morley Robbins of the Magnesium Advocacy Group.

  6. I showed a big deficiency of Vit D on my last Labs.
    It was the one and only bad thing the rest was perfect.
    They told me to start a supplement of 2,000 daily, should I start any other supplement?

  7. A friend took massive doses of Vitamin D and she soon looked like a skeleton and said her bones were depleted of calcium. She said don't even hug her. She quit the high D and seems good now. Never knew about the magnesium. Thanks.

  8. How much, of Vitamin D3, is too much. You never said. I eat organic/non GMO kale, spinach, broccoli, broccoli sprouts, parsley, Swiss chard, etc. I take 4000 mg of Vitamin D3 a day. 2000 with breakfast and 2000 at lunch. Is that too much?

  9. I really recommend Jigsaw Magnesium. They are amazing people and itโ€™s a time released one that actually reduced some neuropathy pain and helped some other issues after almost dying last year. I messaged them and said I couldnโ€™t afford the $30 bottle but asked if it would help my situation, Iโ€™d get some the next month. They sent me a free bottle in response to that. Have to say, I felt way better with it than without.

    So…trying to figure out then what a proper vitamin D dosage would be.

  10. My doctor told me to take 4,000 unit vit d3 a day but mentioned nothing about magnesium ๐Ÿ™ what brand magnesium how much do I take?

  11. to clarify, 5.000-10.000 IU is the recommended daily dose to maintain a good Vit D status whereas 20.000 IU is the maximum daily dose a Vit D deficient person should take to build up blood serum levels but not longer than a month. Going beyond 20.000 a day is contraproductive as it makes the body destroy the active Vit D form (OH 1.25) in larger quantities. Lots of information on the internet available.

  12. Vegetables are good, it's just the Glyphosate that takes away the benefit. Not all people can afford organic food

  13. Wow. I had been tested for low vit D and Iron. Dr prescribed me vit D 2 40,000iu weekly. I purchased vit D 3 40,000iu and took it weekly. While I felt great, I started having leg cramping, especially at night and muscle spasms. I looked it up and it pointed at low mag. I just purchased mag yesterday at whole foods. I feel smart. ๐Ÿค“

  14. Or without the k2 which is in eggs? I tried everything else I might go back to chlorella but there's a lot of vitamin a in that. Now ur vegetable replacement might be better.

  15. I take 30,000 IU's of D3 and 300 MCG of K-2 daily. I will incorporate magnesium. Should I do every day ? I also eat a salad everyday for lunch.

  16. I am so hungry for greens and vegetables. Funny, when available it was a chore to eat. Due to being self isolated, all the home deliveries in my area doesn't include them…plus it is not safe with people coughing on them — seen it in the past with no attemp to cover their mouths. Can't wait until this virus passes so I can start to enjoy them. Then never again be without … going to grow a garden like I used to.

  17. Dr Berg…. thank you but would you please define what you mean by high doses of Vitamin D. There are many people answering this question, and I would like to know from you.

  18. PS… be careful on the Magnesium you choose. There are many varients so do your research. You don't want to take the kind that causes loose bowels or upset stomach.

  19. Another timely, excellent, helpful video, Dr. Berg!! Thank you so much for making your videos!๐Ÿ˜Š

  20. While many are Teleworking, and generally staying at Home, the Anti-COVID Protocol should be to address Nutritional Deficiencies. One of the BEST (Be BEST) things that Folks can do is to take an Epsom Salt Hot Bath at least Three Times Per Week. You get Magnesium and Sulfur this way.

    The HCQ increases the Absorption of Zinc beyond the Fatty Lipids of the Cells in the Body, and that Mitigates what a Virus Does. The Zinc Inside your Cells, blocks a Virus from being able to Exploit RNA so as to Replicate itself. A Form of Sulfur (DMSO…???) appears to be the Cellular Permeability that allows the Zinc to get inside of the Cells. HCQ has a sort of Colloidal Zinc in it.

    What can you do at Home, as a Prevention, while NOT Hoarding HCQ (Like TP) which is needed for those who already have Symptoms of the COVID Virus…???

    Eat your Steak, Eggs, Seafood, and other Zinc Rich Foods. Take your Epsom Salt Baths often so as to get your Supply of Magnesium and Sulfur. Please, Do Keep taking your Vitamin D3. The Magnesium from the Epsom Salts will keep the Calcium in the Bones where it belongs.

  21. Thanks, I may have this issue. i find i just can not seem to hold onto my magnesium enough to keep me from night leg cramps. I started on 5,000 IU vit D a few times a week when I got pregnant plus whatever is in my daily multi and 400 IU in my DHA supplement. I think it may be too much. I do eat well.

  22. Iโ€™ve heard that high doses of D are not helpful for coronovirus. It can actually trigger a more dangerous response. Same with A and elderberry.

    โ€œTrust the Process๐Ÿคโ€

  24. A lot of people in the comments section are asking whatโ€™s a high dose of vitamin D. I think itโ€™s individual and thatโ€™s why itโ€™s really important to test. There seems to be a wide range of how much vitamin D people need to take to get their vitamin D level to a good range. Has anybody heard Dr. Berg talk about what he thinks is a good level to shoot for? I listen to a presentation by Ivor Cummins and he was suggesting somewhere between 40โ€“60 based on indigenous people that spend most of their day outside. But Iโ€™ve heard other practitioners say that they like to see people between 60-80. Most labs have a reference range from 30-100. But of course the reference range can be biased because so many people are deficient. Regardless, make sure youโ€™re taking vitamin K2 along with that and getting decent amount of vitamin A. Those three fat soluble vitamins are synergistic. Also, be aware that some of the high magnesium foods are also high in oxalates so the minerals may not really be available to your body and may also further bind up the minerals that are already in your body. Sallie K Norton has a reliable oxalate list on her website. Thereโ€™s also another reliable list available on the trying low oxalate Facebook page.

  25. I typically really like your posts. But the information I am seeing now, during this unusual time in society, is depressing and scary. Can you say anything positive and helpful?

  26. ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐ŸŒน๐ŸŒน๐ŸŒน๐ŸŒน๐ŸŒน๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’–

  27. Play Dr Berg hope you having a good day I hope this message makes it to you…. My mother is almost eighty years old she's been a diabetic for 40 years….I want to share with her what I've learned from you but she is very stubborn and I don't think she's going to want to change also would it be dangerous for her at this late stage to try something dramatically different.

  28. HUGE QUESTION!!! I have researched AGAIN how ascorbic acid is made. I watched a orthomolecular drs podcast (just released in 3 parts)
    that addresses ascorbic acid if itโ€™s really vit C. He says yes. I know Iโ€™ve read itโ€™s corn syrup or cornstarch (gmo) from China and sulphuric acid. Made by only one company in New Jersey and sold to supplement companies in bulk. It works (no doubt) bc one itโ€™s acid and viruses, bacteria fungus do not live in acid but it draws from the body what it needs to assimilate. So that being said why are they insisting it is??? I know he is well versed and references Linus Pauling …but for the life of me canโ€™t figure out why he says this?? There has to be a explanation. PLEASE DR BERG ADDRESS THIS WITH A VIDEO. Which and what forms to take Ascorbic acid, L-ascorbic acid, ascorbate, ascorbigen , what C…..???? Natural C as well. Plz

  29. Eric you do realise that your recommendation to take chloroquine to combat coronavirus resulted in a man in phoenix doing that and dying right?

  30. Hi Dr Berg. Could you please make a video on how to get rid of dark circles. I think this coronavirus pandemic has stressed me out a bit and now I'm developing dark circles. Thank you

  31. ูŠุณู„ู…ูˆูˆุค ุจุฏู†ุง ุญู„ู‚ู‡ ุฎุงุตู‡ ุนู† ุฑุนุดุฉ ุงู„ูŠุฏูŠู† ู„ู„ูƒุจุงุฑ ุงู„ุณู†

  32. Why am I just now hearing this? ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ

  33. NOOOOOOooooo Trump just legitimized his speech with a Dr Berg call out. If you can't even pronounce his 4 letter name please don't bastardize his info by association. Dr. Berg will end up either looking like Dr. Oz or Alex Jones by the internet.

  34. Blood serum test isn't accurate. RBC is better. The "normal" range isn't normal and most docs will say your fine but the research suggests deficiency starts at higher values than what labs determine as "normal".

  35. I found this out the hard way years ago. I started running and about two years in I thought it would be a good idea to take vit D supplements, just for some extra support in the wintertime. In a few days a muscle sort of snapped in my calf and I lost my top octave of my voice (Iโ€™m a choir conductor, I sing a lot).
    Realizing that the one thing I changed was the vit D, I stopped immediately and the voice turned back in like two days, the calf was still in agony though.
    After a deep internet search I found out about this Magnesium/vit D relationship, I started taking Magnesium and never stopped! Magnesium is a gamechanger!
    B.t.w. I think I was pretty depleted of magnesium because of my running 3/4 times a week. Happy running everybody!!

  36. Thank you Dr. Berg, for this vid. The side effects I get from taking high doses of vitd3 are dizziness, headaches and worsens the ringing in my ear. Now I started taking it with magnesium it seems to help me. Bless you and your family. Stay safe and healthy.

  37. I was taking a magnesium supplement and it effected an Electrocardiogram (EKG) that I had at my VA hospital. The warning read: "Sinus rhythm with 1st degree AV block". My doctor said my PR interval was 210 ms when the range is 120 to 200 ms. He said that magnesium can slow down a PR heart interval but that it wasn't a major concern being close to the normal range.
