How Much Vitamin D Should You Take?

Subscribe to Dr. Greger’s free nutrition newsletter at and get a free excerpt from his latest NYT Bestseller HOW NOT TO DIE. (All proceeds Dr. Greger receives from his books, DVDs, and speaking go to charity).

DESCRIPTION: The safe dose of vitamin D supplements to get most of the population to the optimal level is 2,000 i.u. a day, but the elderly and overweight may need more.

After all that work plowing through the new science and the same 2,000 iu/day recommendation I made in 2011 remains.

If you missed the first two videos in this series, see:
• Do Vitamin D Supplements Help with Diabetes, Weight Loss, and Blood Pressure (
• Will You Live Longer if You Take Vitamin D Supplements? (

And I wrap up with:
• The Optimal Dose of Vitamin D Based on Natural Levels (
• The Best Way to Get Vitamin D: Sun, Supplements, or Salons? (
