This is a full day seminar on the role of fat-soluble vitamins (e.g., A, D, and K) in human health. The presentation covers what modern science reveals about why the food practices of many non-industrialized cultures have supported vibrant health. Directly relevant to those interested in nutrition for healing, participants will learn to analyze claims about fats and disease, to identify superior sources of fat-soluble vitamins, and to assess and amend soils for improved nutrition.
The Fat-Soluble Trio and Their Synergistic Partners
Learn about vitamins A, D, and K: how they cooperate on a molecular level to support growth, strong bones and teeth, and protect against heart disease and cancer. Learn how other nutrients and metabolic factors, such as zinc, magnesium, fat, carbohydrate, thyroid hormone, and carbon dioxide support the functions of the fat-soluble trio. Dissect modern myths that demonize vitamin A or present vitamin D as a lone, cure-all panacea. Learn why these nutrients are best obtained from foods. Grapple with the promises and problems of modern methods to test your nutrient status.
