Good Amount of Vitamin D3
Posted by TrueShoppingAdvice on Mar 29, 2015
These capsules are small and very easy to swallow. 5,000 IU = 125 µg vitamin D3, the best form of vitamin D, has been the right dosage for me all year round, although I am quite small in size. I have measured my blood serum 25-Hydroxyvitamin D, 25(OH)D three times and now in March 2015 my test result was 141 nmol/L = 56.4 ng/ml. My test result was now at optimum level which is 125 - 150 nmol/L = 50 - 60 ng/ml when you are taking enough Vitamin D. I will continue with the same dosage 5,000 IU daily to keep my vitamin D level right. There is no need to worry about overdosing because the tendency for serum 25(OH)D to rise when the starting level already is higher is very gradual.

While I am taking Vitamin D3, I still deficient in the Vitamin and started taking a higher dose and iHerb.com gives me a better price on the vitamin. It is great.

These are small and easy to swallow. I like that they are softgel as opposed to dry.

I love the small size of these and my blood work shows that they are working! These are great if you want a smaller bottle. Doctors Best has great products and I love that iherb gets them to me in 2 to 3 days.

I can't get as much sun as I'd like as my heart meds are not good with the sun. I figure that 5000 IU is a safe amount to take.
