Vitals Vitamin D2 from organic mushrooms
Organically cultured mushrooms were used for this supplement. Mushrooms contain various nutrients among which ergosterol (provitamin D2) which will convert into ergocalciferol (vitamin D2) when enough UV-rays fall onto the mushrooms.
Most mushrooms are grown in the dark, so don't expect mushrooms that you can buy from the greengrocer, to contain significant amounts of vitamin D.
By contrast, the mushrooms used for this extract have been exposed to enough UV-rays and therefore contain a high amount of vitamin D2.

Advantages of vitamin D from mushrooms
An advantage of using vitamin D from mushrooms is how this is an entiurely natural and plant-based product as opposed to vitamin D3 products that are derived from animals (sheep wool or fish livers) and require more purification.
This makes it suitable for vegetarians and vagans as well as for people who prefer a more natural ‘whole food’ supplement instead of a supplement with just one singular isolated compound.

Unfortunately it is not yet possible to create vegan organically certified vitamin D3. .

Vitamin D2 as alternative to vitamin D3
Vitamin D2 is converted into calcitrol, which is the bioactive form of vitamin D in the body. Formerly it was thought how vitamin D2 (the plant-based form of vitamin D) is less effective as a supplement than vitamin D3 (the animalic form) , but a few recent studies that were done on this specific organic vitamin D from mushrooms, show plant-based vitamin D2 can be an excellent alternative to vitamin D3 and is suitable to increase and maintain a normal status of vitamin D in the body. 

Mechanism of vitamin D
Vitamin D is very important for proper calcium absorption and by consequence also for bone metabolism and strong teeth.
It also has a main role in a proper functioning immune system and normal cell replication.
An optimal vitamin D intake is also crucial for cardiovascular health.
Babies, children and pregnant women need to ingest enough vitamin D for proper growht and development.
In winter, the body's own production of vitamin D is much lower than in summer.
Also, with advancing age, our bodies cannot produce enough vitamin D on its own.

Organic
The active ingredients from organic nutritional supplements are guaranteedto be organic and not being produced in a synthetic way. Apart from this, production takes place with special regard to the environment, animals and humans. Special protocols outline what is meant by this. For instance, no chemical pesticides, fertilizers or genetically modified organisms are being used.
The Dutch institute Skal Biocontrole checks whether the protocols are being followed to ensure a product is truly organic.

Wound healing: leave a wound exposed or not? On popular assumptions and role of vitamins

Sometimes it seems I'm the Überklutz as bad balance and absent mindedness made me crash down on my knee after forgetting to unfold one pedal of the folding bike and trying in vein to unfold it while riding.
Thinking it was only a minor wound it only occurred to me to visit the physician two days later when the wound wouldn't stop bleeding : turns out I should have gone immediately as it actually should have been stitched, for which it was too late some 48 hours later.

The assistant told me to clean the wound with water three times a day and take antibiotics for a week.
Can't remember whether plasters were recommended or not, but by chance, that same night I listened to that very same topic on a Dutch cycling podcast (Tweewielers). Apparently wounds should be covered up and kept moist rather than to let them dry and exposed to air.

Apparently this discovery to keep wounds moist was already known by physicians in traditional medicine around the world such as China Egypt or Greece, with methods of which some are being rediscovered, such as the habit to treat wounds with honey.

Seems I'm not the only one to have a wrong perception on what's best for wound healing. Covering up always seemed superfluous to me.  What other popular assumptions are false or true? And what about supplements to take?

The true danger of COVID-19 vaccines : why we should avoid leaky vaccines

Two weeks ago I wrote in my blog on how I did not want a vaccine out of madness because governments won't allow the use of HCQ or ivermectin, both of which are both safe and cheap treatments against COVID-19.
However, I said to not see anything wrong in the vaccine itself. By now I've changed my mind. No, I don't actually deem mRNA vaccines to be unsafe, nor am I too worried about the very rare side-effects of clotting.

What truly spooked me is the fact these are 'leaky' vaccines, which allows viruses to still infect people despite being vaccinated. They just won't get sick, but can become hosts of viruses that may still infect unvaccinated people. Who , in the end no longer will have any other choice but to get vaccinated when a virus has mutated into a too dangerous variant.

At least this is the theory from dr Geert Vanden Bossche, a prominent virologist who spoke out against massive vaccination.

Why is the fact those vaccines are leaky so scary? Let me explain with an article on Marek's disease in chickens.

Should I get the vaccin against COVID-19 or not? On vaccines, ivermectin, paracetamol and fever 

By late April most older adults in the Netherlands will have received an invitation from the government or their physicians to get vaccinated. My own invitation came in this past week, quite a bit earlier than expected. 
 
To be honest, it took me much longer to decide than anticipated. And no, it wasn't just because of all the health scares around the AstraZeneca vaccin due to rare thrombosis incidences. 
 
In general, I'm a fan of vaccinations. As a child I received all of the vaccins that were given to us, with no questions asked.
When travelling to Brazil in 2002, I also followed the guidelines to get vaccinated against yellow fever and hepatitis B. 
 
Like most people, I've also been in awe about the speed at which vaccines were developed for COVID-19. Unlike some, I'm also not as concerned about the use of new mRNA technology to develop the Moderna and Pfizer vaccins. What does appal me though is the high cost for these vaccins, that run in to almost €20 for those high tech vaccins as opposed to just about €2 for a traditional vaccin like Oxford AstraZeneca.
What's worse is that those vaccins don't even offer absolute protection and people may be reinfected with a newer virus strain. Or they may require yearly booster vaccins. 
 
As I was pondering whether or not to get vaccinated, a Youtube video passed by in which dr. John Campbell interviewed dr. Pierre Kory. 
 

Can vitamin D help combat infectious diseases like COVID-19?

Most people know how important vitamin D is to maintain good bone health, but less well known is how it improves immune health. 
Until recently that is, when a study was published about hospital patients with COVID-19 were treated with a special form of vitamin D (calcifediol, which is how vitamin D looks like once it is converted in the liver, which may take up to a week).
The difference in outcome was quite remarkable: there was only one casualty among patients that were treated and far fewer had to be transferred to intensive care. Since then there's been a vastly increased interest for vitamin D supplementation.
 
We decided to dig a little further and found compelling evidence for its efficacy. Actually the evidence has been around for several years already, but was slow to trickle down to the general public (or physicians). 
 
As the coronavirus pandemic continues, many people are wondering how to keep themselves healthy. You know that social distancing, working from home and staying inside in general is one way to protect yourself, but are there other measures you can take?
 
Boosting your immune system is one of the best things you can do because it is your body's key defense when it comes to fighting a virus. Even if you are exposed to a virus, the coronavirus COVID-19 or others, if your immune system is strong, you have a better chance of not getting sick. 
Vitamin C is a popular choice for supporting immunity, but another key nutrient for your immune system is vitamin D. 
 
It turns out that vitamin D, is every bit as important as its vitamin C or other antioxidants whenever the immune system is under attack, like during a cold or flu.
 
Here’s how this underestimated vitamin can help boost immunity and fight viral infections.

Are white teeth healthy? Advantages and disadvantages of dental veneers

Over the past few weeks, people couldn't stop talking over how a couple of famous Dutch celebrities have undergone dental surgery procedures so they could flash a truly blinding white smile. For this to happen, dental surgeons file away part of the original teeth. Apparently this procedure is becoming ever more popular with the advent of social media like Instagram and YoutTube where these semi-celebs show off their health and wealth.

Yellow teeth are stronger!

Gone are the days we were happy with our natural yellowish teeth. It seems that everyone strives for bright white teeth. There are whitening agents in toothpastes which apparently don’t really do the trick, floss, mouthwash, strips, gels, and even chewing gum. Yellow teeth seem to get a bad reputation and are usually associated with poor oral hygiene. Fortunately, we have some good news for those who lack those pearly whites. Yellow teeth are actually stronger than bright white teeth!

But rest assured, yellow teeth are mostly stronger than white teeth.
The strongest teeth are natural, healthy ones and these teeth are not white. At least, not white like the colour of paper, or even the colour of piano keys. They are a couple of shades darker than that. The enamel itself is a blueish white colour, but it is also somewhat translucent so the yellow of the dentine beneath it shows through to make the overall colour of the teeth either light grey or light yellow.

What is the relationship between religion and food?

In the past few weeks two different incidents made me stop and pause to think how much eating or not eating meat is starting to divide our society.
A vegan lifestyle, which once was a complete rarity in our country, seems to have become popular overnight among the hip and happening crowd.
This is in stark contrast with the general public, which is still very much in love with their steak and bacon.
A good example of that contrast was shown in the way the general public as well as vegans responded to the December edition of Allerhande, a popular supermarket magazine. People who like to celebrate Christmas in a traditional way, lamented the absence of classic meat-heavy recipes, while vegans rejoiced about the multitude of creative vegan recipes.
Because the complaints as well as the compliments were so vocal and heart-felt, it struck me how much veganism or refusal of it has almost become a religion of its own.
The loud complaints were nothing compared to the antisemitic vitriol that was spewn when the popular Palestinian vlogger Nas (Daily) decided to make an episode about Tel Aviv, the vegan capital of the world.

All this made me curious about the relation between religion and food laws and more specifically islamic and jewish food laws as well as to the reasons why even non-religious people get so worked up about food guidelines they are living by.

A vegan life

Over the past decades, a vegetarian life-style has become much more common and accepted than say just 25 years ago, when it was difficult to eat a satisfying meal away from home.
With the advent of wider vegetarian options, more and more people jump straight from a non-vegetarian lifestyle into veganism.
