Recent evidence suggests that Vitamin D intake well above current recommendations may be necessary to achieve targeted serum 25 (OH) Vitamin D levels. Vitamin D3 50000iu is High Potency Supplementation for Aggressive Nutritional Support. It is ideal for patients who have difficulty achieving and maintaining peak vitamin D levels:
High dose vitamin D3 capsules for patients with persistently low Vitamin D levels who need intensive support
Elderly patients with low Vitamin D levels
Those with chronic conditions and malabsorption issues that continually compromise Vitamin D levels
Obese patients with an elevated Body Mass Index that impairs Vitamin D circulation requiring higher repletion doses
Vitamin D2 (Ergocalciferol) vs Vitamin D3 (Cholecalciferol) Vitamin D3 is the bioidentical form of Vitamin D synthesized in the skin when exposed to sunlight. It is the preferable form as it has been found to increase 25(OH)D levels for a longer period of time when compared to vitamin D2. According to recent research from human clinical trials*:
Vitamin D3 is approximately 87 percent more potent in raising and maintaining serum 25(OH)D concentrations
Vitamin D3 produces a 2 to 3 fold greater storage of vitamin D than does Vitamin D2
This study and other emerging research confirms Vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol) is the preferred form of Vitamin D delivery.
