Q. Is there vitamin D in wild salmon? We live in Alaska and eat king salmon about twice a week. We also take vitamin D3 since there is so little sunlight here during the winter. Would that be too much?

A. Wild salmon does contain vitamin D, roughly 500 to 1000 International Units (IU) in a serving. In Alaska, you could benefit from an additional dose of vitamin D. A total daily intake of 2000 IU would be reasonable.

I love getting these articles from People's Pharmacy. It keeps me up dated. My daughter has benefited from the articles on Vitamin D. She is feeling much better since she was tested and taking vitamin D.
Thank you! I have my daughter back!

My wife and I current take multivitamins and vitamin D3. We live in Texas and that is probably an ok dosage. But I would like to know what the limit would be if a person did use more. What level might be harmful?

What is D3? My doctor said for me too take Calcium with D3.

PEOPLE'S PHARMACY RESPONSE: D3 IS VITAMIN D3, THE MORE POTENT FORM OF ORAL VITAMIN D.
