Taking one 50,000 IU capsule of Vitamin D3 every two weeks will result in 80% of adults bringing their blood levels to above 40 nanograms/ millliliter, an optimal level for good health. A 50,000 IU capsule is equivalent to the amount of vitamin D from sunbathing for 3 days in a sunny climate. You can take more 50,000 IU pills initially to feel the benefits more quickly.
*About 20% of adults are at high risk for Vitamin D deficiency: especially those who are obese, pregnant, shut-in, avoid the sun, have dark skin, are senior, live far from the equator, or need to deal with an illness, injury, or surgery. They need at least 2 times more Vitamin D.

Vitamin D3 Plus is emulsified by the addition of a non-GMO soy lecithin that ensures excellent uptake by the body.
Follow directions of product used if using a vitamin D supplement. Be careful, if you take too much D3 along with too much calcium, your serum calcium may rise too high.
Spending 15 minutes in the actual sunshine daily, exposing as much skin as possible, will provide adequate vitamin D production if the angle of the sun is favorable enough though John Cannell of the Vitamin D council is now stating that a new study is showing that this may not even be adequate. In a study conducted between October and November of 2012 at latitude 37 degrees north, about the latitude of Washington, DC, the initial mean 25(OH)D levels were 11 ng/ml and no woman had levels greater than 20 ng/ml to begin the study. The women were told to get 20 minutes of midday sun exposure on their hands, forearms and face every weekday for four weeks. Facial sunblock and sunglasses were permitted.
Home testing for vitamin D levels can be obtained without a prescription from the Vitamin D Council.
