Vitamin d3 benefits

Common Questions and Answers about Vitamin d3 benefits


Avatar n tn I tested my vitamin D level. What do my results mean? I just picked the last two levels since the article is very long.... "My level is between 100-150 ng/ml Although these levels aren’t toxic and aren’t usually harmful, they are thought to be too high. There are no known benefits to having a vitamin D level over 100 ng/ml.

Avatar f tn In order to gain measurable benefits, you would need to supplement with Vitamin D3 and at least 10 000 IU of it per day. 10 000 IU of D3 is how much your skin can generate in 10 to 15 mins of sun exposure (that is if you expose a large portion of the skin to the sun without sunscreen such as the back in combination with legs and arms). Vitamin D2 is a synthetic form of the hormone in question and as such is not really good at providing same medical benefits like D3.
3221216 tn?1373640059 The research showed the various pathways that vitamin D3 uses, showing the antiviral properties of vitamin D3 particularly during interferon treatment. Researchers noted that vitamin D3 combined with interferon alfa has a synergistic relationship (the drug interactions are magnified, in this case in a beneficial way). Also noted was that vitamin D3 combined with interferon alfa decreases viral production more than interferon alfa without vitamin D3.

Avatar f tn I agree with the above doc had me on 4,000IU when mine went low,,,I am on chemo right now and I am afraid the D might interfere with the meds so I bought a tanning bed for my home and this way I just have to sit under the light every other day and get 20,000IU real quick.
944903 tn?1269268918 I take 2,000 IU of vitamin D (as vitamin D3). Earlier this year I was found to be very deficient in vitamin D, I went on a treatment of 20,000 IU for 2 months then I was put on 2,000 IU per day for the rest of my life. When I got pregnant I just kept taking the same amount. I have not discussed that with my gynecologist but my regular doctor told me it's very important for pregnant women to get enough vitamin D during pregnancy.
Avatar m tn 1. Depends on what your levels were before. Orthodoxy recommendations for Vitamin D levels are usually in the range of 32-34 ng/mL (which per Vitamin D council is actually considered a 'deficiency state'). Recovery times will vary from person to person depending on the type of supplementation they receive. 10 000 IU of D3 on a daily basis, or 70 000 IU of D3 on a weekly basis should be enough to bring levels up to sufficiency in 3 months... maybe 6 months.
Avatar f tn Really? I didn't even know there was a Vitamin D3. What's the diff? Thanks for the tip!

Avatar f tn After reading these earlier posts about the low levels of those with HCV and the positive benefits of Vitamin D, I decided to request the test. I was tempted to begin taking Vitamin D supplements, but how much and how often? I knew this was wrong to just take Vitamin D without knowing my current level. I began SOC trt 4/21/2011.
Avatar m tn I highly suggest seeing a doctor (or better yet, a naturopathic physician) that truly understands and knows about the benefits of this vitamin, ask to be tested and make sure it if for D3 as that is the important one. In my opinion, it is very safe to take up to 5000IU of it daily, and to make sure the calcium isn't upset or unbalanced by it, add K2 to it as well, this should help your issues. It actually brought my husbands high blood pressure down.
Avatar m tn yes but we dont need full proff since high levels of vitamin d3 can only be beneficial this is what i mean so better keep them at the highest normal range of 60-100ng/ml instead of low range 40ng/ml or deficent at less than 40ng/ml same thing about cholesterol
Avatar m tn Hi there is an article about the benefits of taking Vitamin D3. I am trying to find it for you MikeSimon posted it a while back but I am not sure which forum :) At the same time my keyboard is typing junk, hard to type, I will keep looking You can go up to the top of tge pahe, click gn maonifying glass icon and search.
Avatar f tn I hope you were given Vitamin D3 and not D2. There were little to no health benefits observed from D2 (synthetic form), compared to D3. Also... make sure to modulate your diet with hard and soft cheese which are rich in Vitamin K2.
Avatar f tn Hi, I'm so frustrated and hoping that someone on here has some advice. I recently went to the dr. because I was feeling very fatigued and achy all over...not like "coming down with the flu" achy, just in general having more aches and pains and muscle twitches than usual. They ran a bunch of tests and came back saying that my bloodwork was spectacular, except for a Vitamin D level of 16.
15848200 tn?1456634289 Vitamin D2 causes the amyloid protein in your brain to clump together making it difficult to remove this build up of amyloid. This leads to loss of cognitive function and sets up the conditions for Alzheimer's disease progression. Vitamin D3 helps clear amyloid from the brain which aids in improving cognitive function. Keeping 25(OH)D3 levels at or above 50ng/ml [US] or 125nmol/l [UK] is an important factor in reversing cognitive decline.
