    Vitamin D - Who takes?

    My friend put me onto the "legal" steroid Vitamin D. lol.

    Just wondering how many other people are taking Vitamin D and seeing the benefits?

    I take vitamin D. I focus on my cycles and I take a lot of vitamins so focus on one specific vitamin is not realistic. I also cycle the vitamins although not as structured as AAS.

    Just take it based on blood work as it's fat soluble and not water soluble. Most everyone in North America is low and can probably get by just fine with 5K iu's per day. I personally take 10K iu's per day which keeps me in the 80's on a scale of 30-100.

    The same for me, 5000 IU daily..i find that my blood sugar levels seem to stay more stable when I am carb cycling. My doctor actually told me about the benefits of Vit D and blood sugar levels

    I’d been taking 12,000 iu/day for about a year. Recent bloods came back with a 95.8 of a reference range of 30-100, so I ratcheted it back to 7000 and will see where that lands me in a few more weeks.

    I dropped off of taking 5000iu daily and my last test value was 72.3 on a scale of 30-100ng/mL. Probably will have it checked again this coming winter to see how it holds up without supplementation.
    There are 3 loves in my life: my wife, my English mastiffs, and my weightlifting....Man, my wife gets really pissed when I get the 3 confused...

    Yeah, here too. Showed up deficient on bloodwork a while back- of course it is, in chicago- so doc gave me script for 50,000 iu d2/wk, and i do 5000iu d3 daily. Last bloodwork came back in the 90's. I did notice i was having nagging light upper arm and shoulder pain- but not the joint- the bone itself- after about 3 or 4 wks on the vit d, it disappeared

    I take 50k a week, backed up by blood work, leaves me around 70 on a scale of 30-99.

    For people taking high levels of supplemental VitD WITHOUT bloodwook, be thoughtful, I think I've read that VitD can be toxic at high levels for an extended period of time (source: Kelkel

    Best,

    Yeah i brought the toxicity up to my doc when he first started me, cuz i was also supp d3 on my own. He told me not to have any concern about it from about oct-feb, because in chgo theres no way im going to be able to get my levels high enough during that period. He said he will pull bloods in march and see.
