Vitamin D3: calcium, magnesium and vitamin K2 the hormonal effects and Madison-HannaH (MH) effects the other pathway- a better explanation? 7/7

Curios we should have such a hormone calcitonin to lower calcium levels but helps explains how important it is to keep the blood concentration within a narrow range. Calcitonin is excreted by the thyroid gland. It lowers the blood calcium level by acting on the osteoclasts (perhaps osteoblasts) in skeletal Read more…
