    I have read a suggestion of 1000 IU daily PO, for every 25# of wt.....if obese perhaps more rather than less.....
    and yes the little green footballs are Vit D2......not the useful form.

    Don't forget a good 15 minutes of direct sunlight per day. I have a vitamin D deficiency and mega D2 and sunlight only helped a bit. I'm taking 2000 D3 per day now with Ca, Mg, Zn, vit C and E as well, but I'm sure its going to take months to show any improvement. Getting Vit D levels back up is a very slow process. It would be better if the metabolite was available for infusion, but it isn't as far as I know.

    I was thinking there has to be a better form available.

    Sunlight is not a good option for everyone, someone who already has skin cancer for instance.
