Dietary fat is meant to help with Vitamin D absorption, though this isn’t really conclusive. It also doesn’t seem to matter when one takes it, although some people report high doses of D interfering with sleep if taken in the evening. Dosage is also a highly personal thing; have you had your D levels checked in a blood panel?
I take mine with breakfast, from the fall through to the spring about 6000 IU per day. Mind you, Germany in the wintertime is somewhat darker than Oz. :-)[/quote]
Dankeshe my German friend.
I have not had my blood analysed. Do you notice much difference when you do/do not take it?
Yes, as soon as I upped my supplementation from 2000 IU to 6000 IU per day I noticed a lower susceptibility for colds and a generally better mood. It’s really hard to say, though, if this wasn’t just placebo effect. I take D3 more for general hormonal support and overall health and longevity.
