In fact, it has been proposed that annual fluctuations in vitamin D levels explain the seasonality of influenza.10Startling evidence of widespread vitamin D insufficiency has led to recommendations for Americans to increase their vitamin D intake to 1,000 IU per day and higher.
I have been using these vitamins for several months with no major problems. I take only one a day. The only problem I do occasionally encounter is an aftertaste from the added rosemary extract. This only occurs if I take the pill on an empty stomach and is not bad enough for me not to recommend the supplement or to hold me back from purchasing again. I specifically purchased this brand because it did not contain soy or sugar, which is very hard to find in supplements sometimes.
The softgels don't do as well for me, nor do the many other brands I've tried. LEF capsules are the only ones that keep my mood on track. Unfortunately, the seller from whom I bought my latest order sent me softgels, not capsules. When I complained, they said that softgels are all they carry. To which I replied: then change your listing and change the photo! They hinted that they wanted to receive the shipment back to make sure that what I claimed was theirs actually was theirs. This insinuation irritated me to no end. Then, they sent a replacement shipment that they didn't even tell me they were sending...and it also contained softgels. This hasn't all been sorted out with the seller yet, so I'll reserve judgment here, but suffice it to say that I'm not happy with the seller's behavior and will continue looking for LEF 1000iu capsules.
My doctor recommended that I use this once daily For prevention purposes. I haven't noticed any improvement in symptoms but I believe this is a supplement that is difficult to monitor. My doctor apparently felt this brand was reputable and high quality. It's my first time using this brand. I love that it is reasonably priced and has no allergens!
If you live in the upper midwest or northwest where clouds and gray skies rule for 3-5 months a year, doctors advise patients 50 years of age or older to add at least 1,000 to 2,000 IUs of Vitamin D3 to their diets. The Life Extension brand is a great value, and I prefer the capsules over the soft gels. So this works perfectly for me. Always consult your physician before taking any drug or supplement because some of these may interact negatively with any precriptions and/or supplements you are currently taking. Always be cautious.
I have been taking Life Extension D-3 for about 5 years now based on a brand specific recommendation by a leading Doc/Researcher, which my family has used. Personally, the product has been very consistent in quality, fresh, and an easy to swallow, oval capsule. I have a rather sensitive stomach and found no aftertaste and it doesn't repeat on me.I have found that Amazon prices for all Life Extension products to be as low as directly from the manufacturer and with Amazon Prime the shipping is free. Highly recommended!
The pills are great; however, they leave a foul after taste in your stomach. Meaning when belching after taking them it isn't pleasant.
I have been using this product for over 2 years and my bone scans reflect that they are indeed working to keep my bones healthy.
