Lots of false information being posted about Vitamin D, thought I'd post this from Dr. Davis:

The majority of people require vitamin D doses of 4,000 to 8,000 international units (IU) taken in an oil-based gelcap form to achieve the target value of 60 to 70ng/ ml.

Vitamin D should be taken as D3, or cholecalciferol, which is the form that naturally occurs in the human body and is widely available as a nutritional supplement. You do not want the form found in mushrooms (D2 or ergocalciferol), which is also the form in prescription vitamin D. In this instance, the nutritional supplement form is superior to the prescription form.

An interesting fact is that, after age 40, the majority of us experience decreased ability to activate sufficient amounts of vitamin D in our skin from the exposure to sunlight. Living in the tropics is no guarantee of adequate vitamin D status. A recent assessment of elderly males living in a tropical climate revealed that 66.7 percent were vitamin D deficient.

I got these before and they started out clear, but turned milky. Not sure if that's bad or not. I've been doing a lot of returns lately with Amazon, and am worried about sending these back too.

It says it contains coconut oil. If it was a few degrees cooler the coconut oil may have slightly solidified making it milky.

Coconut oil solidifies just below room temperature so it is ok...

Normal, healthy people shouldn't be taking vitamin D supplements, a simple multiV would do. Usually people who take these specific vitamin pills have a deficiency, and in this case, 5000IU is perfectly fine and actually the recommended dose by doctors.

5000 IU daily is recommended by most professionals now, and our body gets 20,000 IU from 20 minutes in the summer sun. No danger of overdosing. Our bodies store up the extra, so you can even take a 50,000 pill once a week and call it good for the week. My chiropractor has worked extensively with the surgeon general on Vitamin D, and he also recommends taking 50,000 IU for three days in a row when you start to feel a cold coming on. Our bodies can't absorb it from the sun in the winter above the 37th parallel (like mid-US and up), so it's super important to take half the year, at least.

Tried buying three bottles but no dice. Limit to one only. Got one tho. Buying both for my wife and my mom. For me too. This is the best brand in amazon. Both my mom and wife are both diagnosed with vitamin D deficiency and it's this brand that finally made them both reach their target levels. Specially my mom who went thru different brands and handful of bottles with repeated dose adjustment before she reached hers. We usually stack up on these when they are on sale like this.

Thanks OP.
