It is essential to maintain healthy vitamin D levels throughout all stages of life, from fetal development to old age. Vitamin D helps protect a number of important functions in the body.
The current recommended daily vitamin D intake is 200-600 IU, and is based on the minimum allowance to protect against bone disease. However, an upward revision of the FDA's guideline is now under consideration in light of new research, especially pertaining to immune function. Cutting-edge research suggests serum vitamin D levels should be in the range of 50-80 ng/mL 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25(OH)D).
Although direct sunlight exposure is a good source of vitamin D, many people do not get enough sun due to season change, latitude, or lifestyle. Therefore, vitamin D supplementation can be of great benefit in these cases.
One to two capsules daily for 3-5 days, or as otherwise directed by a health care practitioner.

I take 2 vitamin D-25,000 capsules per day, as recommended by my physician. When I fall into depression, I take 2 in the morning and 2 in the afternoon. My most difficult times are in the fall, though I live in the sunny southwest. This vitamin D by Thorne Research is highly effective and leaves no side effects.
Inexpensive Veg. capsuleMy Dr. prescribed 50,000 IU Vitamin D gels. I didn't like taking those with gelatin in the capsules. As I was shopping, I found that either the capsules were animal based or the strength was too low that I had to take many capsules at one time. I came across this product and ordered it after consulting my Dr's office.
Though its only 25,000 IU, I can easily take two capsules at one time ( for me its 2/week). They are small, no smell after taking them. Also, priced well by this website.
