Get your D levels tested, go from there. I just had mine tested 2 weeks ago and with effectively no sunlight exposure I'm just about at a perfect level at 5k IU's a day (most days, I generally don't take them on the weekends, I just kinda use the weekends as a supplement break, no real reason just nice not swallowing a billion pills heh).
I have been taking D3 drops, are they ok? 1000 iu per drop x 4. They are called Delicious D. Ingredients are Vit D3, and additives are medium chain triglycerides from coconut, I presume coconut oil and natural cinnamon.
Starting Primal June 2012 at 148.5lbs, goal weight in November 2012.
Lowest weight 93lbs - too thin. Now up to around 101lbs and holding.
Primal, minus eggs, dairy and a myriad of other allergens.
5000 iu/day but not religiously. Gloomy Gloucestershire but I can't afford to go somewhere sunny!
Man seeks to change the foods available in nature to suit his tastes, thereby putting an end to the very essence of life contained in them.
I've run out, but when I decide to repurchase again, I may go with the drops. I was doing a liquid capsule with MCT carrier oil.
Some people just need a sympathetic pat... On the head... With a hammer.
I've seen it suggested in a blog post that too much D can impair the immune system (as well as too little). Could there be anything to that, do you think?
(The blogger had one personal anecdote in support; so do I. There was also a theoretical basis, but nothing I was qualified to judge.)
Four years Primal with influences from Jaminet & Shanahan and a focus on being anti-inflammatory. Using Primal to treat CVD and prevent stents from blocking free of drugs.
Eat creatures nose-to-tail (animal, fowl, fish, crustacea, molluscs), a large variety of vegetables (raw, cooked and fermented, including safe starches), dairy (cheese & yoghurt), occasional fruit, cocoa, turmeric & red wine
