Vitamin D is the most important hormone in the body and sufficient levels are anti-proliferative, pro-differentiating, and anti-inflammatory: all involved in cancer pathogenesis.  VDI provides patient-specific dosing guidelines to get patients to sufficiency.

Folate, an essential vitamin that is produced endogenously through the bacteria in the gut, is an important cofactor in RNA synthesis.  Changes in folate levels can indicate changes in gut flora or the presence of disease in the small intestine.

Magnesium is an essential nutrient involved in numerous biological pathways, acting as a cofactor to ensure they run efficiently and effectively.  VDI provides patient-specific dosing guidelines to get patients to sufficiency.
