Think of Transport Proteins as molecular taxis - they collect vitamins, fatty acids & actins then transport them to where they are required. Transport Proteins help the body to rejuvenate naturally by binding and assist with the transportation of, vitamins, fatty acids, and macromolecules found in emu and argan oil and sunlight exposure. Transport proteins are integral membrane proteins; that is, they exist within and span the membrane across which they transport substances.

Vitamin D Transport Protein is multi-functional plasma protein with many important functions. The most well known one, and the reason for its name, is the transport of vitamin D metabolites . Because VDTP is the primary transporter of vitamin D, it has a role in maintaining the total levels of vitamin D in the body and in regulating the amounts of free (unbound) vitamin D available for specific tissues and cell types to utilise.
Other functions of VDTP are to control bone development, binding of fatty acids, sequestration of actin and a range of less-defined roles in modulating immune and inflammatory responses. The actin removal is considered to be a very important role for VDTP, actins being toxic and released into the body following cell death.
Two amino acids on this protein chain have been shown to be very strongly associated with the activation of macrophages. In some publications, the vitamin D binding protein is shown to respond to enzymes released by inflammation. Studies show that this isoform not only has the potential to activate macrophages, it can turn them off when no longer needed, so can be classed as an immune system regulator.
We have blended Vitamin D Transport Proteins so that they can deliver their molecules, vitamins and fatty acids without hindrance from Nagalase. Nagalase is an enzyme that occurs naturally in the intestines where it breaks down Glycoprotein in our food.
Nagalase is also produced in quantities by cancers, viruses & bacteria to break down a specific glycoprotein in our blood - Vitamin D Transport (Glyco)Protein. Because it is an enzyme—a catalyst—Nagalase performs this malicious ritual over and over and over again, and each time it comes away unscathed and unchanged. One Nagalase molecule can thus destroy a huge quantity of Vitamin D Transport Protein molecules resulting in immune suppression or collapse.
