After Back surgery a hip replacement and another hip revision my testing showed low calcium absorption, physicians added calcium with additional D3 to help with the bone growth process. I can always count on you to have just what the doctor ordered

When I received this product all the soft gels were stuck to each other. Instead of 30 softgels I had one mega one. The integrity of the product would have most certainly been compromised. Will not order again.

It's nice to take 1 pill instead of 5. Vit D is a great supplement for those of us who go through northern Canadian winters with little sunshine.

I have the problems to write in English, I learn English, and I am a begginer. Now, I am using "Google translate" to write. Probably, next time, I will give the concrete comments. Compartive prices with quality are four stars, my opinion. Sincerly Slobodan

I think 5000IU is too much for someone to take for more than 2 weeks. I would recommend the 1000 or 2000 unless your doctor has said otherwise.

For me these 5000 IU caps were bit too much, I could see it on my face with melanin reactions and freckles popping too excessively all over while I received no sunshine exposure, and you can't take a half of it, so I had to change to another type, but it varies from person to person, for some this might be what they need. PS: remember not to mix with E vitamin group

I took an average of 50,000 IU weekly for 9 months . I raised my level from 12 to 70 ng/ml !! At level 12 , I had regular anxiety , exhaustion , felt weak , depressed , hormones were unbalanced , adrenal fatigue and brain fog . Nowadays , I leap out of bed , average 7-9 miles of running / walking daily and feel positive . Don’t forget the co-factors , not only K2 but iron ( especially women) and magnesium .

Teenage daughter who is always lethargic has reported improved energy levels since starting on these vitamin d tablets. As the dose is high I get her to take it every other day instead of daily.
