            I take 2 each day along with my other meds -- small softgels are easy to take, easy on tummy, and keep my numbers on track. As an aging "boomer," I'm hitting challenges such as bone density, immunity. It's nice to find such an easy-to-use product at great prices online!!

                  I take one every day and keep my vitamin D level up. If it drops I really notice that I don't feel as well. Vitamin D is so important for everyone and it's so difficult to get enough without being in the sun everyday.

                      Comments about the Vitamin Shoppe Vitamin D3 5000 IU - 200 Softgels:

                      My last blood work showed very low levels of D3 in my system. I stopped sunning years ago due to our ozone layer being shot and started getting sun burn which I never did before being olive complexion. Vitamin D requirements are highly individual, and the amount that your body needs may depend on numerous factors, including the color of your skin, your location, and how much sunshine you're exposed to on a regular basis. It is important to have your levels tested regularly using a 25(OH)D or 25-hydroxyvitamin D test. Vitamin D levels should never go below 32 ng/ml. Instead, you should aim to have your levels between 50 and 70 ng/ml I've learned.

                      There is one other thing you need to be aware of if you choose to use an oral vitamin D supplement and that is that there are basically two types – one is natural and one is synthetic.

                      The natural one is D3 (cholecalciferol), which is the same vitamin D your body makes when exposed to sunshine

                      The synthetic one is vitamin D2, which is sometimes called ergocalciferol

                      When it comes to the benefits of optimizing your vitamin D levels, the evidence is simply overwhelming. Research shows you can drastically reduce your risk of cancer and countless other chronic diseases by getting safe sun exposure, using a safe tanning bed, or taking a high-quality supplement.

                      Always do your research. ;-)

                        I've been taking these for 3 yrs now. I take two a day. I am not Vitamin D deficient. My doctor told me to take 10,000 IU a day so I do. Do I feel different? I really don't know but I do know I don't get enough sunlight or Vitamin D in my food so I'm sure this is helping me. It's fairly inexpensive so why not take it?

                          I take one daily in the morning.
                          Both of my parents suffered from osteoporosis, and I hope to avoid the family tradition of hip fractures.
                          My vitamin D level was low on a checkup and the once daily dosing did bring this into the normal range.

                              The 5000 Vit D capsules are tiny and very easy to take. I take one in the morning and one before bed. I sleep better, but most importantly, I wake up in the morning refreshed and ready for my day. I don't need to rely on caffeine all morning to get me going.

                                  I am cronicly severly low on Vitamin D due to a blood disorder, so I have had to rely on supplements. All of the supplements I have taken in the past have been HUGE horse pills and I need a few to get my daily requirements set by my doctor. When I found this site i was stoked! The vitamin D pills I need are so tiny! Little gel caps! Easy to take, PLUS they come in the dose I need in one easy pill! No more choking down horse pills daily! I love this site! I get all my meds here now!

                                    Thanks to my dermatologist, she recommended me to take the D3 supplements as a cholecalciferol form. She emphasized how this supplements has not been recommended much by doctors and how recent studies has shown the importance it is for general woman's health and help reduce the possibilities of Osteoporosis and Alzheimer and in my case for Psoriasis. After taking this supplement, every time I go for a physical (blood test), my Vitamin D3 is excellent. Yes, I recommend this VS Vitamin D3 5000 Iu to everybody.

                                          I was not diagnosed with vitamin D deficiency, but I figured it out by going into a Vitamin Shoppe store. I was complaining of muscle soreness. Every muscle in my body hurt no matter what I did or did not do. The associate who helped me recommended taking 5000IU of vitamin D a day. After about three days of taking this every morning with breakfast, I no longer had muscle soreness, and I felt better than ever.

                                                  I am using this D3 for several months-two a day in the winter. One per day for the summer. An excellent value and a tiny softgel.

                                                  This product has been recommended to me by several people but I see that there is a problem within the supplement industry as to the accuracy of the amount of supplement contained within the product being what is listed on the bottle. Does this product have a seal from USP or NSF International that verifies the amount of Vitamin D is what is claimed to be on the packaging?

                                                  DOES THIS VITAMIN HAVE BHA IN IT?? THERE IS NO INFORMATION ABOUT THAT?

                                                  Best Answer: Well now that is interesting that you folks that make this don't know if you are putting BHA in it. If you don't know, how the heck am I to know.

                                                  BHA is generally used to keep fats from becoming rancid. It is also used as a yeast de-foaming agent. BHA is found in butter, meats, cereals, chewing gum, baked goods, snack foods, dehydrated potatoes, and beer. It is also found in animal feed, food packaging, cosmetics, rubber products, and petroleum products.

                                                  I would not expect to find it here but am pretty confused that the makers of their own product don't know.

                                                  Best Answer: I believe it is animal based - but I am not sure. I am a vegan so I purchase one of their vegan vitamin d products for myself- my mother likes the small size of the Vitamin Shoppe's own brand - there are a few vegan brands available at the Vitamin Shoppe to choose from. If you are a vegetarian there is a raw vitamin D available at the Vitamin Shoppe. I hope this helps. Good luck.

                                                  I've read other users comments regarding Vitamin D3 5000, I am 5'10, 234 lbs. Reasonably good shape however I do have HBP, Acid Reflux and don't sleep well without use of medicine. I do work out at least 3 times a day but my diet is not discipline. What would some of the obvious benefits of Vitamin D3, 5000 be for me at the normal 1 pill a day dose?

                                                  Best Answer: Vitamin D can be found in 2 forms. Vitamin D2 is manufactured by plants or fungus. You would include it through fortified foods such as juices, milk or cereals. However, vitamin D3 is formed when the body synthesizes sunlight on its surface. It mainly occurs through the exposure of the skin to UVA and UVB rays. Vitamin D3 can also be obtained by consuming animal products.

                                                  Best Answer: Hi Tammy G. It is my understanding that most forms of Vit D3 are animal based, mostly sheeps wool. I am unaware of any forms of D3 that have been derived from corn.
