Information on the latest vitamin D news and research.

Find out more information on deficiency, supplementation, sun exposure, and how vitamin D relates to your health.

I've been prescribed D2 50,000 units weekly. I used the prescription, but get only 4 soft-gels for $14 co-pay. Is it possible to buy in bulk instead of the monthly dosage?

    Mike I understand the doctor prescribed D2 but we now have enough studies and information to know that D3 is much better for humans to take.
    If you live in the USA you can find D3 just about everywhere (stores and internet) and in different amounts. It is also better to take it on a daily basis if possible. So the 50,000iu once a week would translate to about 7-8000iu of Vitamin D3 a day.
