- 5000 IU D3
Vitamin D deficiency is quite common, particularly among the elderly. A study conducted at a hospital in Glasgow, Scotland, found an almost universal deficiency in vitamin D among a group of 548 elderly patients who were admitted for hip fractures. Likewise, low vitamin D levels have been associated with increased risk for multiple sclerosis, myofascial pain, and certain forms of cancer.
Treatment of colds and influenza with pharmacological doses of vitamin D may only be the tip of the infectious disease iceberg. Vitamin D-sensitive antimicrobial peptides (AMP) have been identified that inhibit the HIV virus. Invasive pneumococcal disease, meningococcal disease, and group
A streptococcal disease (all three sensitive to AMP) are more common when vitamin D levels are lowest in winter, raising the possibility that pharmacological doses of vitamin D would be an effective adjuvant treatment. In fact, the dramatically increased production of AMPs by vitamin D and the broad spectrum of action of AMP make it reasonable to hypothesize that pharmacological doses of vitamin D are effective adjuvants in treating a large number of infections.
Deficient individuals may need 5,000-10,000 IU of vitamin D daily to replenish tissue stores. With these patients specifically in mind, Thorne’s D-5000 supplies 5,000 IU of pure vitamin D3 in each vegetarian capsule.

I have been using this product since Nov. I learned via blood tests that my Vitamin D levels where at 14 (optimal should be about 50-60, my doctor said). After taking an average of one pill per day for about 4 or 5 months, my number went up to 49! This is a GOOD thing! My energy levels have increased and I feel better all around. And it is not expensive, either. : )
Overall a Great ProductI really like the Thorne vitamine D3 5000 IU It is one of the highest per capsule per vitamin D on the market. It offers immediate relief and healing benefits in just one night. Over the long term I hardly ever get sick and recovery is much faster.Was this review helpful to you?
Superior Quality!My wife "SWEARS" by this particular Vitamin D3 Supplement.
She says that she can "feel" the difference. I simply cannot argue with that since I was taking some other brand myself.
She was turned on to the Thorne Brand by a respectable Nauturalpath Clinic. The swear by it too!
