If you are interesting in learning the power of vitamin D, you should read our earlier following two articles too:

Your body muscle cells act like a furnace for the human body. Every pound of muscle burns 35 or more calories a day just to maintain itself, and it burns even more as it powers every movement you make.

Your muscles are capable of burning many types of fuel. It can burn fat (ideal), it can burn protein (not ideal) and it can burn carbs (it may or may not be ideal depending on circumstances). Ideally you want your muscles to burn very little of stored carbohydrate. That’s because dropping muscle glycogen stores trigger hunger. The hungrier you get, the more likely it is that you’ll overeat. However you can manage this with the help of Vitamin D to encourage your body to preserve glycogen while preferentially burning fat.

As you know your muscles are also composed of protein. When you go on a diet, your muscles usually burn a combination of fat and protein. Ideally you want to increase the fat burning and decrease the protein burning because it’s the protein that keeps muscles strong and your metabolism humming along.

The more protein your muscles cannibalize during a diet, the slower your metabolism and the harder it is for you to maintain your results.

We recommend you to use Vitamin D and Calcium (specifically from the dairy products) to optimize and preserve muscle protein and preferentially melt fat.

This is what Andrea Josse of McMaster University says:

“The preservation of muscle is very important for maintaining metabolic rate and preventing weight regain.”
