                    My Dr. checked my Vit. D levels and found me to be deficient. He recommended a liquid Vit. D3 to bring my levels back up to normal quickly. I am very happy to have found this liquid at the units prescribed by my Dr. And it is very affordable, too. Thank you vitamin Shoppe.

                      Comments about the Vitamin Shoppe Liquid Vitamin D3 5000 IU 5000 IU - 1 Fluid Ounces Liquid:

                      High potency means you take less. Drops means I don't have to choke down pills. Good taste means I enjoy taking it, plus I can get my kids to take it without fuss, too. It's simple to take a few drops after eating. D3 makes a big difference in my life in 2 things: mood and immunity. I get sick less often on D3 and have less mood swings. I HIGHLY recommend taking Vitamin K2 (MK-7 type) with D3, though. Google it and see why.

                        I started using this product while I was pregnant and dealing with the winter blues. I'd take 5-10 drops since I wasn't going outside much and within a couple days I could tell a huge difference. I had more clarity and my attitude greatly improved. The flavor is just light enough that I can put it in a bottle of water and hardly notice.

                        MY PHYSICIAN SOMETIMES CHANGES DOSAGE AMOUNT DEPENDING ON BLOOD TEST RESULTS FOR VITAMIN D LEVELS. DOSAGE ON THE PRODUCT IS 5 DROPS EQUALS 5000 IU (1000 IU PER DROP). IT'S MUCH EASIER TO RAISE OR LOWER TO THE DOSAGE PRESCRIBED BY THE DROP THAN HAVING TO KEEP PILLS IN VARIOUS AMOUNTS AND FREQUENTLY HAVING TO SPLIT THEM. MY PHYSICIAN IS PLEASED THAT I FOUND THIS PRODUCT. IT'S WORKING WELL FOR ME.

                            I used Sprouts brand before and my test level dropped. It didn't taste good either. After using these mild tasting drops my level actually went too high and I cut back according to the doctor's instructions. She's having me, at 56 yrs old, take 30K IU/week. (This bottle says that a serving size is 5 drops and that there is 5K IU per serving. That equals 1K IU per drop. So whomever another reviewer talked to didn't read the same bottle.) This is a great price.

                              MY PRIMARY CARE DR IS VITAMIN COUSCIOUS. HOWEVER, GETTING THE DOSAGES SHE RECOMMENDS IS SOMETIMES TRICKY. USING LIQUID VITAINS WHEN POSSIBLE MAKES INCREASING OR DECREASING DOSAGES SIMPLE--AND A LOT LESS TROUBLE THAN SPLITTING PILLS OR EXPENSE BUYING DIFFERENT DOSAGE ONES.

                                  Comments about the Vitamin Shoppe Liquid Vitamin D3 5000 IU 5000 IU - 1 Fluid Ounces Liquid:

                                  I began taking this while in the Navy. On an aircraft carrier it's easy to get sick from others, and for me getting sick in wintertime was a sure thing.

                                  Began taking this liquid D3 5K IUs per day almost two years ago and have not gotten a cold once since then! Once tried switching to 5K IU gel caps from different brand and got the sniffles. Immediately went back to liquid.

                                  Don't know how my tests are but just this observation that I have not gotten sick since I started taking it is enough to keep me on it. It tastes good. I put it in a teaspoon of VS liquid fish oil (also tastes good) since vit D is fat soluble, and swallow it down. It's tasty.

                                  It is recommended to take 1K IUs per 25lb of bodyweight. Don't look at govt recommendation, do your own research. Now I take 7-9 drops (more than my bodywieght) but I do it every other day or so. There's research that says you can take a really high dose of D that'll last you for some time. So I'm experimenting. It's good when you can get the same benefit without having to take it every day.

                                  Anyway, this is good stuff. Try it.

                                      Since I take a lot of vitamins, when possible, I like to take liquid supplements. For over a year, I've been taking The Vitamin Shoppe's Liquid D3 5000, daily (some days 5 drops; some days less--depending on being in the sun or not). Recently, I had blood work done and my Vitamin D level was excellent! The highest range was 72 and mine was 62. I also take this vitamin after breakfast with my multiple and other vitamins. I am very happy that it works and it's not expensive.

                                        I know my vitamin d levels have increased because my doctor checks every few months. I sleep like a baby. It doesn't taste good but taste only lasts for a second - there's no aftertaste.

                                        Just to clear up any confusion, after speaking with our local store.

                                        1 drop = 1 millileter = 5000 IU's

                                        I believe some reviewers think that 1 drop is 1000 IU's. Feel free to correct if you have been told otherwise. My dr script is for 50,000 IU's per week so I had to find out for sure; insurance won't cover liquid because they say it's OTC.

                                          Since I've been supplementing with D3 and getting more outside time in the sunshine, my immune system is so much stronger . . can't remember the last time I had a cold! I take it in the AM at breakfast with a good fat like organic extra virgin coconut oil.

                                              I use a multi-vitamin and other supplements in tablet and capsule form. I put these Vitamin D drops into my morning smoothie, which makes it easy to take and I have one less pill to swallow. I tried another brand of liquid D and didn't like it because it seemed too oily. This one blends into the smoothie very nicely.

I just got my blood checked, and now I have some possible explanation for all my strange pains and things. PLEASE check the Vitamin D Council's website about toxicity of high doses: <br> <br>

                                                                I love these drops. 1000 Iu per drop is the easiest way to dose my Vitamin D. No need to mix with anything to take. Pleasant tasting, easy to titrate the right dosage, based on sun exposure/time of year. I highly recommend the 5000 Iu by Vitamin Shoppe. The best Vitamin D drops I have found.

Not a big fan of the taste but its not horrible. I did notice that when taking larger doses of this when sick reduced discomfort probably by about half. Overall this is a nice product but I think the Ddrops are better.

I regularly refer my clients to the Vitamin Shoppe to pick up liquid Vit.D3 because they can take larger doses at the start of cold or flu and virtually knock it out with no harmful side effects. After several days of therapeutic doses, they can then choose to supplement with either drops or the softgels to keep their blood levels high enough to prevent colds and flu! The liquid is also the most cost effective way to take Vit.D3...and did I mention the convenience and effectiveness?

                                                                                    It's the "right" kind of Vitamin D (D-3), it tastes good, it's convenient, there are over 180 servings in this little bottle (only 5 drops for 5000 units), and the price per serving is super. It's our Vitamin D of choice from now on. Anyone with any questions about that high a dose should carefully study the Vitamin D Council web site. Numerous studies point to 5000 units as being quite safe for virtually any adult, and the number of conditions it now appears to affect (positively) is impressive - to include autism. We have friends who've recently started their young twin boys (with guidance, of course) on "high" doses of Vitamin D, and the results were clearly evident within days. Personally, I'm convinced of the safety of 5000 units after much concern and research, and this product is one of many I've used in the few years I've been taking it - but it's the one I've settled on. Very satisfied! (And I asked for my Vitamin D level to be checked at my last physical - only BARELY above the bottom of the normal range after having been on 2000 units daily for some time. I have an upcoming physical and will again ask for the Vitamin D level to be checked due to the increase in intake, but fully expect to still be in the "safe" range.)

It takes good and goes down smooth. I also take the 2000 IU softgel at times. Like them both and have had good blood test results for my D levels so I know it's working.

This liquid D3 is a very good alternative to add needed supplements to my diet. And the taste is great - whether by dropperful straight to the mouth or adding to smoothies.

If I forget to take it one day I feel it in bed that night. It is great to take something that you can tell is working! It did not upset my stomach.

However, I would have indigestion whenever I took certain supplements such as fish oil. My nutritionist recommended taking my supplements before meals to eliminate the problem which it did. Perhaps you can try this, as well, by taking your 5 drops in water just before your meal. If it doesn't help you could try a different brand; I had to do that with my garlic supplement. I hope this helps!

Most people don't really need that much (abt. 800IU/day) however, if your levels are low then adjust this upward. Prescription Vit. D is 50,000IU per week so 7000IU per day but again; you only need to do this if you have an absorption problem. Get your level checked and go from there. These drops work great and are much easier to take then tons of pills!

                                                                                            Be sure to check your D3 levels, if you use high doses.

                                                                                            Now foods 5000 IU liquid D3 says serving size is 4 drops. But it goes on to say that each drop is 100 IU. So, the serving size is 400 IU's and does not match the front label.

                                                                                            So, we can conclude that serving size does not have to match the front label. If that is true, we have no idea what the amount of vitamin d3 is per drop on the vitamin shoppe brand because they do not say how much is in each drop.

                                                                                            So, I would like an answer direct from the manufacturer, how much D3 is in each drop?
