I have been taking 50,000 IU's of Vitamin D3 per day for the past several weeks and want to know if this will harm me.

I am getting a lot of relief from my peripheral nerve problems and just want your opinion.

For every 1000 IU of D3, take 100-200mcg of K2 (in the form of MK-7 or higher [MK-9])
by: Rahul Maitra

Remember Vitamin D3 & Vitamin K2 need to be taken together — the recommended ratio is:

For every 1000 IU of D3, take 100-200mcg of K2 (in the form of MK-7 or higher [MK-9])

I like to get their Vitamind D3 blood levels up to about 100-120 ng/ml. For many people that takes from 10,000 IU (up to 20,000 IU) of vitamin D3 daily. The best way to determine if your blood levels are high enough is to get your blood tested.

For Daily Usage:

If taking 10,000 IU of Vitamin D3 —-> take 1,000 to 2,000 mcg of Vitamin K2 (in form of MK-7 or higher [MK-9])

If taking 20,000 IU of Vitamin D3 —-> take 2,000 to 4,000 mcg of Vitamin K2 (in form of MK-7 or higher [MK-9])

Personally, I am taking 100,000 IU of Vitamin D3 daily for approximately 100 days (with 10,000-20,000 mcg of Vitamin K2 daily) — after this period, I will drop my daily Vitamin D3 intake to about 10,000 IU (and may bring levels back up to 20,000 IU periodically)

For more information about large doses of Vitamin D3 (25,000 > 50,000 > 100,000 IU Daily!) — check out:

TAKING 100,000 IU OF Vit D3 DAILY
by: Big T

Dear all who take Vit D3. THE TROUBLE WITH TAKING HIGHDOSES OF VITAMIN D 3 / COULD BE TOXIC. BUT WHY THE BLOODY HELL DONT THE PEOPLE IN THE KNOW/ DOCTORS ETC TELL THE PUBLIC THAT YES IT WILL BE TOXIC IF YOU TAKE THAT MUCH VIT D3 DAILY FOR LONG PERIODS WITHOUT BEING TESTED. BECAUSE BEING TOXIC MEANS THAT BECAUSE OF THE VIT D3/ TO MUCH WILL TAKE CALCIUM OUT OF YOUR BONES AND PLACE IT INTO YOUR BLOODSTEAM/ BAD.

BUT WHAT THEY DONT TELL YOU IS ,IF YOUR GOING TO TAKE HIGH DOSES OF VIT D3/ THE YOU SHOULD BE TAKING 1 X SUPER K2 VITAMIN FOR EVERY 10,000 IU OF VIT D3/ WHY ? BECAUSE VIT K2 WILL KEEP THE CALCIUM RIGHT WHERE IT SHOULD BE/ IN THE BONES.

I WAS TAKING 50,000 IU OF VIT D3 FOR AT LEAST 3 WEEKS BEFORE I HAD A VIT D DEFICIENCY TEST & I WISH I HAD, HAD THE TEST BEFORE TAKING THE VIT D3, ANYWAY MY TEST CAME BACK AVERAGE, WHICH IN MY EYES WAS NOT GOOD ENOUGH. I WANTED MY VIT D TEST TO COME BACK HIGHER. THE TESTER ASKED ME HAD I BEEN ON A SUNNY HOLIDAY/ WHICH I HADN'T. IT WAS BECAUSE I HAD BEEN TAKING THE HIGH DOSES OF VIT D3.

I HAD BEEN READING A BOOK BY JEFF BOWLES AND HE HAD BEEN TESTING VIT D3 ON HIMSELF FOR OVER 20 YEARS IN VERY HIGH DOSES, HE HAD CURED ALSORTS OF AILMENTS ON HIMSELF. RE THE 100,000 IU VIT D3. I TOOK DAILY FOR A MONTH. OBVIOUSLY YOU CAN'T JUST RELY ON THE VIT D3 TO HELP YOUR BODY, FOR INSTANCE I DON'T EAT JUNK FOOD/ BURGERS OR ANY TINNED FOOD, OR PROCESSED FOOD AT ALL AND I'M GOING ONE FURTHER, I AM GOING TO CUT OUT ALL WHEAT FROM MY DIET FOR ONE MONTH, TO SEE IF THAT COULD HELP ME FURTHER, ANYTHING WHEAT IS BASICALLY POISENING US ALL WITH THE CHEMICAL SOUP THAT IS PRODUCING ALL OUR WHEAT ALL OVER THE WORLD, CUT OUT ALL WHEAT AND YOU WILL SEE A VAST DIFERENCE IN YOUR HEALTH IN A MATTER OF WEEKS, ALSO READ THE BOOK CALLED WHEAT BELLY/ FANTASTIC REVALATIONS ABOUT THE WHEAT WE EAT. EATING BREAD/ SOON BE DEAD.

TAKE CARE ALL BIG T.

About 1 million units so far..
by: Kerri Knox, RN-The Immune Health Queen!

If you have been taking 50,000 IU's every day for the past 3 weeks, then you have taken just about one million units of Vitamin D.

There HAS been research done on this amount in healthy young men and there were no toxicities. HOWEVER, that IS a lot of Vitamin D, and it is almost A SURE THING that over time - how MUCH time will be different for everyone- you WILL become toxic at that dose!!

You absolutely need to drop back to a 'Maintenance Dose' of Vitamin D of between 3500 to 5000 IU's per day until you know what your Vitamin D Level is.


That is GREAT that you are getting relief from your pain- wuhoo!! But you don't want to cause WORSE problems because you took too much!!

There is also a lot of evidence that peripheral nerve issue can benefit from Vitamin B-12 and that the nerve problems might be a result of the Vitamin B 12 deficiency.


So, PLEASE do not take Vitamin D 50,000 IU per day unless you are getting regular Vitamin D levels by your doctor. This is NOT a safe dose to be taking for long periods of time without being monitored closely!
