iHerb Customer Reviews
Mu Vit. D3 level was below 20 and now is about 80 with these capsules.
The VIt D3 brands I had been taking so far did not raise my D3 level at all and caused me some undesirable side effects. Only this Life Extension brand has worked and over a year my levels went up from 0.19 to 0.71 which is nearly the right level of D3
