    Any help on what vitamin D supplement I should order, amount wise. I want to order some quickly seeing as it is now permanent darkness here in the UK. Thanks.

      Thanks, I think I'll go for the 5000 ones then.

      I had a look on Big Vits but Amazon was cheaper by a fair bit. Nearly half price. I've gone for these:

      Amazon.co.uk: Buying Choices: Healthy Origins, Vitamin D3, 5,000 IU, 360 Softgels

      360 tablets will keep me going for quite a while too.

      Cheers.

        I get this one Healthy Origins, Vitamin D3, 5,000 IU, 360 Softgels - iHerb.com

        because it's high potency so I don't feel like I have to take it every day. I usually only take it monday-friday with lunch, so I average 25,000IUs/week
        I used to seriously post here, now I prefer to troll.

            My vitamin D level was only 14. I was taking 2K units daily and it only went up to 20. Now my doctor prescibed 50K units once a week. I get retested next month I hopefully it will be near 35. I know doctors that precribe 5K a day to treat low levels but you can take 10K, supposedly, without any side effects.

                  I'd like to buy some vitD supplements too, these look good, I like the fact that they tell you the ingredients:

                  "Product Description
                  Natureā??s Answer Vitamin D-3 offers the preferred Vitamin D form of Vitamin D-3 in pure golden extra virgin olive oil. Vitamin D-3 is delivered in a highly absorbable liquid form with no fillers or tableting agents typically found in other brands. This product is free of salt, wheat, corn, soy, yeast, sugar, milk and preservatives. Please visit Natural Herbal Supplements, Vitamin and Nutritional Supplements | Nature's Answer for more info."


                  Are most vitD supplements made from olive oil? And does anyone know how much olive oil you would need to consume to get the same dose, in this case, one drop = 4000ui's.
                  Apologies in advance if this has been covered before.

                    Not all vit D3 supps have to be made with olive oil. I get the sublingual kind. Actually they are microlingual. They disolve under your tongue in seconds. Very handy for kids (and people who can't swallow pills).
                    Some people just need a sympathetic pat... On the head... With a hammer.

                      They sound good. I just had a brief google search and read the plus points for using the ones that disolve under the tongue but couldnt find the ingredients they use other than "Dissolving agent and sweetener: Lactose, acacia gum, and stevia". Do yours mention what they are made with at all?

                        I think you will find that the olive oil is merely a vehicle (albeit healthy) for containing the actual supplement that is sourced i believe,from lanolin found in sheeps wool.

                          I found this an informative thread cayla29s, thank you for starting it.

                          I'm 119 5'2.
                          I hope you found a good Vitamin D dosage. It's good to see you're still looking after your health at 119; what weight are you by the way?

                            I get mine at CVC4Health. Here's the info on the back of the container.

                            Vitamin D 10,000IU 2,500% daily value
                            (as cholecalciferol)
                            other ingredients: Lactose (milk) and acacia gum

                            100 count for $19.99 US (IMO, not a bad price for over 3 months worth)

                              Just an update. Got my bloodwork done and my Vit D level was 65. Woo Hoo. That was after taking none all summer and taking 6000IU probably since Sept-Oct. I forget when exactly I started. In the past as my previous post said I was taking 2000IU and was barely at OK levels with a number in the low 40's. I guess optimum levels are 65-75 so I plan to continue with the 6000 a day.

                              As a side note I just realized that my low levels were also when I was still eating grains. Wonder if stopping the grains allowed better absorption.
