Is 10,000 IUs of Vitamin D3 Safe to Take?
New To Keto But Want To Grow Your Knowledge?
More specifically, you want help with Is 10,000 IUs of Vitamin D3 Safe to Take??
one thing I want to talk about is the
duration of how long to take vitamin D as well as the dosage there’s a lot of
confusion most people are taking between 600 IU’s
to a thousand I use sometimes 2,000 IU’s and they think that that’s enough one
thing you need to realize is that about 75% of the population on planet Earth
are deficient in vitamin D and vitamin D is so important in fact it’s the most
important fat soluble vitamin especially for the immune system based on some
pretty credible studies which I’m going to list down below and I only listed
three I’m gonna give you quite a few of them in the first study the group took a
thousand 2,000 IU’s of vitamin D once – twice per week for one month and did not
increase their vitamin D levels at all second study took a thousand of 2,000
IU’s and it took four months to elevate their
vitamin D and in the third study it took three months to achieve just a normal
level of vitamin D by taking 1,600 IUs of vitamin D and I just had a call from a
lady on my live show who was taking 50,000 I used a vitamin D for weeks and
it did not even increase her levels so the question is how could you be that
deficient if you’re taking so much vitamin D the first thing to know is
that it takes a lot longer than you think
to fix a vitamin D deficiency it could take months the second thing to know is
that there are various things that prevent the absorption of vitamin D one
is your gut if your gut has damaged you’re not going to be able to absorb
out them and eat you well also your age greatly influences your ability to
absorb vitamin D not just from dietary sources but from the Sun the color of
your skin also influences your ability to absorb vitamin D in other words if
the skin is darker it could take three times as much Sun to penetrate the skin
and then there’s a topic of how much fat you have the more subcutaneous fat you
have in your body the less you’re going to absorb vitamin
D and then there’s exposure to the Sun if you’re going out in the Sun
and you’re only exposing your hands and your face of the Sun you’re only
exposing 5% of your body to the Sun which it would take you hours and hours
and hours to even achieve a small amount of vitamin D and then you have the
location where you live the latitude the connection between where you live in the
Sun if you live in the northern hemisphere which if we look at United
States is just above LA and we look at the months between November and March
the amount of vitamin D you’re going to get is pretty much insignificant and
then we have metabolic issues let’s say for example you have diabetes you have
arthritis you have high blood pressure cardiovascular disease guess what the
requirements for vitamin D go way way up and then of course we have the season if
it’s winter and you’re out there trying to get Sun the odds of you getting
enough vitamin D are very very slim and then lastly there’s a genetic factor
involved called polymorphism where there is a variant or an alteration in your
genes which don’t allow you to absorb vitamin D very well and a lot of people
have this and they don’t even know they have it
and that could be the reason why they can’t absorb it oh and there’s one more
that I forgot to mention if you have a chronic infection see the viruses that
invade the body downgrade your vitamin D receptor so if you have an infection
whether it’s in the lung and the sinuses or in your gut the microbes specifically
viruses have a strategy of blocking the absorption of vitamin D they block the
receptor so you can’t absorb it it’s a survival mechanism and the white blood
cells that are fighting the virus need vitamin D desperately so they’re gonna
suck up that last a little bit of vitamin D that you have so as you can
see there’s a lot of factors involved with the absorption of vitamin D how
much vitamin D would I recommend 10,000 IU’s per day as a maintenance and I
mentioned this plus if there’s an autoimmune issue involved and you’re
gonna need much higher amounts of vitamin D with magnesium b6 and zinc and
there’s a couple other things that you can do if you’re concerned
that this amount of vitamin D is toxic which is not you’d have to consume one
to 200,000 IUs of vitamin D for months and months or years to create the
complications and the biggest complication from vitamin D toxicity is
hypercalcemia that’s too much calcium in the blood because that could be to
kidney stones one way to even minimize the risk for that would be to drink 2.5
litres of water per day that way you avoid a super concentration of calcium
in the kidney so there won’t be any calcium forming in the kidney another
way is just to avoid calcium and supplements as well as cheese that way
there’s no calcium to go into the kidney in form as a kidney stone alright guys

Today we’re going to talk about how long to take vitamin D and vitamin D dosage. There seems to be a lot of confusion around vitamin D3 that I want to help clear up. Most people take 600 IUs to 2,000 IUs of vitamin D3, and they think that’s enough. But is it?
About 75% of the population is deficient in vitamin D. I believe vitamin D is the most important fat-soluble vitamin—especially for the immune system.
Studies on vitamin D:
1. In the first study, the group took 1,000-2,000 IUs of vitamin D 1-2 times per week for 1 month and did not increase their vitamin D levels at all.
2. In the second study, the group to 1,000-2,000 IUs of vitamin D, and it took 4 months to elevate their vitamin D.
3. In the third study, it took 3 months to achieve the normal level of vitamin D by taking 1,600 IUs of vitamin D.
• It takes a lot longer than you think to fix a vitamin D deficiency.
• There are various things that prevent the absorption of vitamin D.
Various things that can prevent the absorption of vitamin D:
• Gut damage
• Skin pigment
• Subcutaneous fat
• Sun exposure
• Metabolic issues
• Chronic infection
Vitamin D dosage:
• You may want to consider taking 10,000 IUs of vitamin D per day for maintenance, but you may want to take more if there is an autoimmune issue involved.
You would have to consume something like 100,000-200,000 IUs of vitamin D for months or years to create complications. The biggest complication of vitamin D toxicity could be hypercalcemia.
Still, to help minimize the risk of hypercalcemia, you could drink 2.5 liters of water per day. You could also simply avoid consuming calcium in supplements as well as cheese.
