Optimizing Health With the Fat-Soluble Vitamins and Their Nutritional Synergists with Chris Masterjohn, PhD


In this webinar you will learn how vitamins A, D, and K interact with macronutrients such as fat and carbohydrate, minerals such as zinc and magnesium, and metabolic factors such as thyroid hormone and carbon dioxide, to produce health. We will cover how to achieve dietary balance through nutrient-dense foods and explore some of the promises and perils of testing for nutritional status. The webinar will conclude with a question and answer period.

Chris Masterjohn is currently Assistant Professor of Health and Nutrition Sciences at Brooklyn College in Brooklyn, NY. In the summer of 2012, he obtained his PhD in Nutritional Sciences from the University of Connecticut in Storrs, CT, where he studied the role of vitamin E and other antioxidants in regulating the metabolism of methylglyoxal, a potentially toxic byproduct of energy metabolism that appears to contribute to diabetes and cardiovascular disease. From the fall of 2012 through the summer of 2014, he worked as a postdoctoral research associate at the University of Illinois in Urbana, IL, where he studied interactions between fat-soluble vitamins A, D, and K. He is now continuing this research at Brooklyn College. Chris has published eight peer-reviewed scientific papers, contributes regularly to Wise Traditions, the quarterly journal of the Weston A. Price Foundation, and blogs at The Daily Lipid.
