I take Mercola's supplement which is 6,000 a day I believe.
I was tanning quite a bit but not using any product on my skin when I went in. I never got particularly dark even though I went often. My vitamin D levels did normalize during that time.
The ultraviolet rays are just as dangerous as the products used to create the tan. IMO, not worth the risk to even enter a tanning salon...go natural.
Check out this paper for some interesting information - lots of information out there about Vitamin D and autoimmune diseases and the importance of getting enough vitaminD, the importance of UVR etc
"Taking 50,000 international units (IU) a day of vitamin D for several months has been shown to cause toxicity. This level is many times higher than the recommended dietary allowance (RDA) for most adults of 600 IU of vitamin D a day. Doses higher than the RDA are sometimes used to treat medical problems such as vitamin D deficiency, but these are given only under the care of a doctor and only for a short time."
Correct, mine is taken once a week at 50,000IU and it D 2. I need to be retested to avoid toxicity.
fat soluble vitamins can produce toxicity in large quantities, water soluble vitamins the body can eliminate quicker through water and kidneys.
We are on 50,000 once a week for 8 weeks, then need to stop and be retested.
low vit D associated with breast cancer.
