    I’m so glad to see the results of this study. My husband was diagnosed with PD 12 years ago at the age of 48. In 2006, I started giving him 8-10,000 IU of D3 4-5 times a week (daily would have been my preference). After 3 or 4 years, I reduced it to 6000 IU because of his reluctance to take so many vitamins. I have been personally convinced that the D3 has slowed the progression of the disease, and he hasn’t had a single cold since that time! This study backs my hunches and will hopefully make my husband less reluctant to take his vitamins.

    @jalfuhaid,

    Glad to see your good results. Please remember that for Vitamin D to be properly utilized by the body, it requires certain co-factors.

    Magnesium and K are of particular importance.
