My calcium/magnesium tablet is fortified with vitamin D.

I don't take it to lose weight but I take it in the winter as the sunlight is quite low.

Yes, 2000 IU because I had my blood tested and Vit D level was a little too low.

I take 2000 IU of D3 for bone health. I have also noted that I get fewer colds since I have started taking this. Winters in Michigan have very little sun.

My husband takes 2000 a day because he has no immune system due to a liver transplant and the anti rejection meds make his bones soft............weight loss is not what it's good for, which quack is lying about that now?? I swear, there should be law suits about the lies spread about what stuff will do or not.

Plan for tomorrow, but enjoy the heck out of today.

Not for weight loss, but my oncologist recommended that I take 1000 IU of D3 twice per day to help my bones. I have stage IV breast cancer that has spread to my bones.


My name is Shari; I have been a Sparker since July 2006, and living with Stage IV breast cancer since 2007.

I also take 2000iu a day, but not for weight loss-I haven't been sick except for the occasional sniffles for the past 3 years I've been taking it. There was a local hospital that did a study-they gave their employees free Vit. D supplements & the sick day call-ins were reduced by 20%. That made me curious enough to try, & I'm glad I did.

Before taking D, I would get bad colds every winter, I had bronchitis a few times, the flu once. Nowadays, I've had periods of time where literally everyone around me was sick to some degree-family, coworkers, with everything ranging from colds, bronchitis, to strep, and pneumonia-and I was fine. So either it helps, or I'm a carrier! :)

Yes I take vit.D supplement. One can only get it "from the sun" if the sun is shining on them. Here in the Pacific North"wet" the gray skies & rain keep the sun covered up, so no benefit to me about 6 months out of the year.

No, I don't specifically take vit.D for weight loss.

Your body only needs a certain amount, which most people can easily absorb from being out in the sun for just a few minutes. If you supplement and don't need it, your body will just get rid of it through your urine. I have never heard of it helping with weight loss. I lost weight through regular exercise, eating healthier and tracking my calories. As soon as I was honest with what I was actually eating and sticking with a calorie range, the pounds just came off. You don't need a supplement. It's better to lose weight by making permanent changes in your lifestyle instead of relying on a pill.

Is it wrong to fight time, to turn it back or push it forward? Time was never mine.

My vitamin D I get in the natural sun itself, no pills..I make sure I spend 2-4hrs in the sun and that is easily done by spending time in my yard and garden...
Otherwise I work outside on my deck.

I do not wear sunscreen at all because it blocks the important UVB rays that it takes from the Vit. D.. until I find one that blocks just the one ray, I will buy it LOL

I would never take pills just to make up for it either. All the vitamins in the world we need are all natural in foods or by nature itself :-)) Enjoy

Studies of Vitamin D supplements are so mixed, I just stay away from them. I try to take a more natural approach to Vitamin D. I try to get plenty of sun and eat foods rich in Vitamin D Calcium. Doing this I feel gives me a broader spectrum of the substance.
