    Hello everyone,

    My vitamin D level was a low 18 just a few months ago. My integrative doc wanted me to take 5000 IU's of D3 everyday, then get my levels checked again in 3 months.

    I found a company called Life Extension on the internet and they had the perfect supplement. You only have to take one powder capsule a day and it contained 5000 IU's of vitamin D3. I liked this supplement because it was in a capsule, not a hard tablet or a softgel.

    What I found interesting was when I called the company to order the supplement, they asked me if I was under a doctors care which I found interesting because most companies will just take your information and send out the supplement. I thought it was very professional.

    So anyway, this supplement has worked, my levels are not high, but at least they are going up.

    Before I used this supplement, I was just taking a D3 2000 IU supplement for the health food store and my levels didn't go anywhere that supplement was a softgel.

    Just thought I would pass this around if you are looking for a D supplment. The company again is called Life Extension and you can find them on the internet. I hope I was allowed to suggest this. Hugs, Chelz.

    PS D3 is the best form of Vitamin D to take...

    I have noticed an improvement with my pain levels, but not at first while I was taking the D suplement. My pain level has dropped a little and my fatigue is better.

    I don't know if anyone has read my post from a few weeks ago, but my father had suddenly passed away in May. Of course a situation like this would probably put anyone into a stressful time, but I have had more stamina to deal with the situation. Of course, emotionally I will be dealing with this for a while.

    I do believe my decreased pain levels have helped me so much in what I had to deal with. Obviously, my levels should go up a little more and maybe I will feel better, but we all know what FM can do to us. I'm just so glad that I found a supplement that is working according to my blood levels.

    Also, I have received the Life Extention magazine and I truly believe they are a substantial company and I do trust their supplements. I will be purchasing Coq10 from them soon as my doctor wants me to take 200 milligrams of that as well. Thanks for sharing the information. Hugs, Chelz.
