I would like to ask you a few things about vitamin d3. I was recently tested due to muscular pains and i am 12ng/ml. The doctor put me on 25.000 per week. Does this mean that i will be 37ng/ml after 2 months? If yes it is still low. Do you think i may take more?? I take magnesium citrate 400 daily because it helps me and i bought k2 100 mcg, shall i take k2 once per week together with d3 or i need to take it on a daily basis? Thank you very much

    I always encourage everyone to read http://www.vitamindcouncil.org/about-vitamin-d/vitamin-d-and-other-vitamins-and-minerals/ if they have not already done so. The K2 you should take everyday.
    When you are deficient most doctors give 50,000 iu once a week for 8 weeks. This should be D3 and NOT D2. After that if your levels are high enough, then you can probably go to a maintenance dosage of 5000 iu of D3 a day.
    It is better for you to take lower amounts of Vitamin D3 and to take them daily and not weekly. With that being said you could for example take the 25,000iu on Sunday and then add 5000iu a day for the next six days. That brings you closer to a total of 50,000iu for the week.
    We believe in maintaining healthy levels of a minimum of 50ng/ml because at 40ng/ml and below your risk for cancer and autoimmune diseases rises “dramatically”.
    Let me know if you have anymore questions!

    Hello again. I recently got bacterial vaginosis from swimming in a not clean (at least) sea and the doctor gave me flagyl. Is it okay to take my d3 & k2 while i will be on antibiotics? Thank you

    Yes, ! could find no interaction between the vitamins and flagyl.
