Understanding Vitamin D Supplementation: Benefits and Safe Practices

Vitamin D is essential for health, but exceeding safe levels can lead to hypercalcemia (high blood calcium). This could potentially cause:

  • Kidney stones

  • Digestive issues (constipation, abdominal pain)

  • Frequent urination

  • Neurological changes (dementia, depression)

  • Ulcers

Good News: Vitamin D toxicity is rare and often reversible by adjusting supplementation. Toxicity usually occurs with sustained, extremely high doses, and blood levels over 150 indicate a risk.

Preventing Issues: Key Steps

  1. Vitamin K2: Take 100mcg K2 for every 10,000 IUs of D3 to guide calcium into bones and teeth.

  2. Bile Salts: Support absorption if experiencing digestive issues.

  3. Hydration: Drink at least 2.5 liters of water per day to reduce kidney stone risk.

  4. Magnesium: Crucial for vitamin D metabolism.

  5. Dairy: Limit dairy intake with high levels of vitamin D supplementation.

Dosage Considerations

  • Maintenance: 10,000-20,000 IUs is often sufficient.

  • Therapeutic (Short-Term): 20,000-50,000 IUs

Important Note: Vitamin D deficiency is far more common than toxicity.
