Description | See IngredientsVitamin D 50,000 IU by Ortho Molecular is a high potency vitamin D3 supplement 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
Many U.S. experts consider 30 ng/mL (75 nmol/L) 25(OH)D to be an optimal of vitamin D, such as Michael Holick, one of the worlds leading researchers on vitamin D, who agrees that 30 ng/mL (75 nmol/L) "is required to maximize vitamin Ds beneficial effects for health."
There are many studies using 50,000 IU and more of vitamin D3 as a loading dose or intermittently (weekly, monthly, etc). These studies show that patients who are severely deficient in vitamin D can often times reach optimal vitamin D levels with high dose vitamin D3 therapy. Recent evidence suggests that Vitamin D intake well above current recommendations may be necessary to achieve targeted serum 25 (OH) Vitamin D levels.
