50, 000 IU Vitamin D can help treat Vitamin D deficiency. It’s the standard treatment in the United States among allopathic doctors when a patient is diagnosed with Vitamin D deficiency. I know, I am very deficient in this much-needed vitamin and continue to have to supplement my dietary choices with pills to make up for the deficiency.
I began taking the Teva Pharmacy 50, 000 IU Vitamin D tablets about 2 years ago when I was first diagnosed with a deficiency of Vitamin D. The doctor suspected I might be deficient because I was experience joint and body pains that were beyond what should have been caused by my Sjogren Syndrome diagnosis. Vitamin D and joint and muscle aches go hand in hand when there is an imbalance.
The Teva Pharmaceuticals brand Vitamin D is the default brand for my Target pharmacy, and most others I’ve encountered. The gel capsule is a bright royal green color. I haven’t been able to discover exactly which food dyes are used in this, but I can tell you that if you have any constipation at all that your stool may turn funky green colors when you take this product internally.
It has no taste that I can sense. It is also relatively odorless. In fact, I think I am smelling the plastic of the bottle more than any Vitamin D get capsule when I open the container.
I did find that combining Carlson’s Solar D Gems with 50, 000 IU of the Teva Pharmacy seems beneficial. My body has certain medication absorption issues and the added Omega 3’s seem to help with overall absorption so I can support steady levels of the Vitamin D in my blood stream. Without adding in the over the counter Carlson’s Vitamin D I was not maintaining my levels. However, you should not take more than the prescription strength without your doctor’s awareness.
