Wanting to increase your glutathione?

    This report further indicates the relationship between glutathione and vitamin D and possibly how vitamin d deficiency or insufficiency contributes to glutathione depletion.

    The vitamin d council recommends 5000 IU per day but in the case of illnesses which themselves deplete vitamin D the dose should be 10000 IU per day, at least in the winter months.

  2. I had been taking 5000 iu of vit D twice daily for a while, then backed down to just 5000 iu once daily because I was worried I was getting too much of the vit D and it could be harmful. Now I'm wondering if I should go back to the 10,000 iu? I must have missed your previous post though. What report are you referring to?

    I have been taking 5000 Iu twice daily for several months now and I believe it is a contributor to my recovery. I also take it with zinc, magnesium and boron, the key co-factors for vitamin D. Recent studies all suggest that 10000IU is safe and appropriate for someone with a vitamin d depleting illness such as ME. Of course it is better if you can get plenty of sun too.

    For info on vitamin D efficacy and safety look up.

    I take 3000 IU's and that seems to be my dose. I've tried 5000 but it juices me up and makes me jittery. I live in FL so I likely get some from the sun. I don't go to the beach or pool to sunbathe but just being outside will expose me enough to get a tan line. I have a farmer's tan line on my arms and lines where my sandals sit on my feet.

    Love, Mikie
