Side effects of Vitamin D...
by: Kerri Knox, RN- The Immune Queen!

This is a common Side Effect of Vitamin D that is due to the depletion of magnesium. You can see my page on Anxiety from Vitamin D to see why you feel this way.

It takes magnesium to convert vitamin d into its active form in the body and if you are even a little bit deficient in magnesium- and a HUGE number of people are- then you might get Symptoms of Magnesium Deficiency as 'side effects' of vitamin d from its conversion from supplement form into its active form in the blood.

Feeling jittery IS a symptom of magnesium deficiency, so you may want to try taking am Extended Release Magnesium Supplement to see if that solves the jittery side effects of Vitamin D.

The vast majority of Vitamin D Side effects that I hear about are from people that are taking prescription Vitamin D. The recommended type of supplements are Vitamin D3 Supplements and NOT prescription supplements.
