I appreciate your quick response to my query,my doctor insisted that it is ok to take Vitamin d2, but I badly want to take d3 since most information from various sources suggested that.If that is the case which vitamin that I can take instead of the prescription.

Vitamin D Supplements

Hi Anitha,

Well, you could certainly order the Longevity Plus Vitamin D Supplements that I sell. CLICK HERE.

They have 5000 IU's per capsule and so just take one per day with your prenatals and that should cover you until you get your next blood level. There is no specific reason to take a higher dose weekly except for convenience.

My doctor prescribed me a Vitamin d3 of 50000iu/week. My calcium level is normal and within the required range,still I should take that much vitamin d?



Should I worry about hypocalcaemia.

I read about your Vitamin d3 supplement, it does contain Magnesium, but I read that we shouldn't take it through supplements we need to acquire through foods.

Once again thanks a lot for your patience and answers.

This is a very good site and I will recommend to my friends.

Vitamin D Will Not Change Calcium Levels
by: Kerri Knox, RN- The Immune Queen!

Vitamin D will not change calcium levels unless you Overdose on Vitamin D, which 50,000 IU's per week would not even be CLOSE to an overdose, so it's absolutely nothing to worry about.

What you SHOULD worry about is not the AMOUNT that you are taking, but the FORM. Your doctor gave you a prescription, but if you read the page on Prescription Vitamin D, you'll see that is not the right form to take.

My supplements don't have magnesium in them. It's just a trace amount as a filler. It is not enough to count as a supplement.

You can get magnesium through your foods if you get enough magnesium through your foods. Unless you are a strict vegan eating only fresh plant based foods, it's unlikely that you are getting enough magnesium.

You were not able to get enough vitamin d from your foods, yet a lot of people say that we should get all the vitamin d we need from our food too!!

Signs of Magnesium Deficiency are so rampant as to be called an 'epidemic' by Dr. Carolyn Dean, founder of the Future Health Now Program and Dr. Mark Sircus, author of
"Magnesiuim The Ultimate Heart Medicine"
.

And if you go to Vitamin D Overdose Blog and read about all of these people who are having uncomfortable symptoms after taking vitamin d. The VAST MAJORITY of these people simply have an induced magnesium deficiency as I outline on the Magnesium and Vitamin D page.

However, the guy who is running the blog is telling everyone that they are having a Vitamin D Overdose when they are not because he has no idea about the connection between vitamin d and magnesium.

You may be interested in reading my page on Magnesium in Pregnancy to see why most experts, again, believe it's safer to take magnesium during pregnancy than to NOT take magnesium during pregnancy.


So, it's certainly up to you whether you take magnesium with your vitamin d, but NONE of my clients have the problems that people on that blog do- because I insist that they take magnesium with their vitamin d.

Sorry to bother you again.I am taking a DHA supplement too contains 200mg,is it ok with this?

I hope the vit d supplement you were suggesting safe during pregnancy.

Thanks in advance.

Vitamin D is safe
by: James

Hi Anitha.

Vitamin D3 is safe safe safe to take before, during, and after pregnancy.

I tell all my pregnant friends to GET YOUR LEVELS TO APPROPRIATE LEVELS.

It's weird. I never understand why, but they have more fear about taking Vitamin D3 than they do about being Vit D deficient.



Personally, I would be more worried about being nutrient deficient than nutrients sufficient.

Being Vit D deficient is DANGEROUS to your baby.

Being Vitamin D SUFFICIENT is SAFE AND BENEFICIAL to your baby.

Also, 200mg of DHA is just fine and is NOT going to interact in any negative way with the vitamin d. It's actually ridiculously low. Most people don't get enough of it anyway, and 200 mg is not 'a lot' by any stretch of the imagination. Recommendations of DHA during pregnancy are much higher than that, last I looked.

Remember, babies NEED nutrients. If you're low on nutrients (17 for Vitamin D is LOW LOW! Get that up with D3 if you want to get pregnant!) then get full of nutrients.

BTW, having a low Vitamin D level could affect your ability to get pregnant. So again, get your level up with D3!

Thanks a lot James

I want to cover up all my doubts,thats all.

Moreover these D3 supplements contain Fish oil I reckon.

That's not a problem right?

I Don't Know...
by: Kerri Knox, RN- The Immune Queen!

Hi Anitha,

I do not know if these supplements contain fish oil or lanolin, but it makes no difference. Vitamin D Supplements are safe during pregnancy. So is fish oil.

Fish oil is where DHA comes from!! So, if it were unsafe to take fish oil then you could not be taking DHA!!

Trust me, as I said before, it's FAR FAR safer to take Vitamin D in pregnancy than to be vitamin d deficient.

If you want to be worried about something during pregnancy, then I HIGHLY HIGHLY suggest that you get and read the book Nutrition and Physical Degeneration by Dr. Weston A Price.

He talks EXTENSIVELY about the damage to children done by the mothers eating processed foods and from not getting enough healthy fats in the diet!! So, if you are this concerned about the supplements that you are putting into your body, I do hope that you are avoiding 100% of:

Sugar
White and processed flours
Pasteurized Milk and Dairy Products
Soy
Caffeine
Pesticides/Xenoestrogens/other toxins
Food Additives and Preservatives
Artificial Sweeteners


And if you want to be concerned about something else, be concerned about additives such as Excitotoxins. Excitotoxins are ingredients like NutraSweet and MSG that are added to processed foods. Dr. Russell Blaylock talks about why excitotoxins ingested during pregnancy are the likely culprit behind ADD/ADHD in his book Excitotoxins: The Taste That Kills.

And what about pesticides? I hope that you are eating ONLY organic foods because all conventional fruits and vegetables have large amounts of toxins that we have no idea what they are doing to the developing fetus- especially Xenoestrogens that are the likely culprit behind the early puberty (sometimes 7 or 8 years old) in girls and the delayed pubertal development in boys.

Yipes!! That's what I would be WAY more worried about than vitamin d and fish oils that have been proven safe and beneficial over and over and over again during pregnancy!!

How to order
by: Anith

I am indeed avoiding all those stuffs.

I am just confused because of my ignorance in these matters. Sorry for that.

If i order Longevity plus vitamin d3,how many days it will take for shipping, is there any shipping charges.

Just Like Ordering Everything Else on the Internet
by: Kerri Knox, RN- The Immune Queen!

Hi Anitha,

It's exactly like ordering everything else on the internet. You place your order and the shipping charges will be shown on the page BEFORE you put your credit card number, so you'll know exactly what it is before you order.

It goes out by mail the same day or the next day depending upon the time that you order it. How long it takes depends upon the mail.
