The Institute of Medicine (IOM) recommends 600 IU of Vitamin D per day for people 1 to 70 years of age, and 800 IU of Vitamin D per day for those 71 years of age and older.

This is a good starting point, then when you get your blood checked for Vitamin D, you and your doctor have an idea of how much you should take.

D3 is good but it is fat soluble and does not leave your system quickly Have your doc check your lab work to make sure you are not getting too much. A,D,E, and K can build up in your system.

Any brand of D3 is good, BUT don't take too much because that is BAD for you.

I take Evacal D3 on prescription since my diagnosis. The government has recommended that all older adults should take Vitamin in the winter for some years now. It has recently been recommended as a help in Covid recovery and perhaps some protection.

Many years ago I had a very good doctor and he told me with having osteoporosis, that I need to get my blood tested for Vitamin D, and my level was low, so he told me to start taking 1000 IU everyday and my next blood test was good, and I get my blood checked every year for several things. I am so glad he knew to check my Vitamin D level, because the female doctor I had before him, never thought of it.
