whats the best daily dose chaps?
5000 - 10'000iu a day
I'd go 10'000 personally
I use 5000 daily. Just because that’s what the tabs are, haven’t had a cold all year... so far! I know a lot do 10 but don’t see the need personally
When rick @ Olympus was on here he advised me to go 15k
'Maybe' related to size so 10k good enough for many.
They really have made a big diff for me immune system wise.
Yea immune system wise and the dark nights coming in.. always get that little fed up way when it's dark before and after work.
Not noticed any difference been taking for a solid 6 months 10,000 iu
I just have one tablet.
Says it’s over the RDA (no rafael dos anjos) so it’s gotta be more or less enough hasn’t it.
Think it’s fat soluble as well so take it with peanut butter to promote better absorption.
Wouldn’t mega dose it personally as being fat soluble the body has no easy way to get rid of it so even though it’s fairly rare there is a risk of toxicity if you over do it.
5000iu probably your best bet, can go to 10000iu if you get hardly any natural sun light at all. Ideally take with a fatty meal to aid absorption just like @doink says. Best vit D3 supps also include vitamin K too.
Can't quote the exact statistic, but vitamin d is more effective at preventing cold/flu than the actual flu vaccination, amazingly. Just ordered mine. Should have started taking it sooner, but touch wood, haven't been too bad so far.
I take 15000ui (3 caps).
It was actually watching a video by stan efferding that got me into taking them, and given that he has access to the sun all day (California based from memory) there must be something in mega dosing vit d for health and strength. He says he got his vit d tested and it was very low, took a load of it and got his levels up and his strength increased drastically. How much is true I don't know obviously, but given it is cheap as chips (360x5kiu tabs is less than a tenner) I will try it.
Noticed I feel healthier and haven't picked up any colds etc since using and as many know my immune system is/was shite.
aye, my immune system has been really bad in the past. I'm from the NE of England, but I can remember living in Thailand for 5 years and being no better (immune wise).
My ZMA supplement has helped a lot in general as well.
Bit of HGH and test don't go amiss either haha.
don't think you actually need anything like the doses stated here chaps mine's prescription and I asked about taking higher dosage and was told not necessary.
although it's cheap enough so...
Yeah think my misses got some on prescription and iirc that was 5k
I've only been using the one 5000 or whatever tab per day. Worked for me at that dose.
