Hi Bob, haven't seen you on here for a while, hope you are keeping ok.

I thought there must be a benefit to taking vitamin D as my GP told me to take it.




Hello Colin. I am still surviving thank you and read the boards occasionally but not a lot to talk about these days.

I use BetterYou vitamin D oral spray. It apparently is the most effective way to absorb it. You can get it from most chemists and online.



The studies have concluded that Vitamin D oral spray is as effective as a capsule, not more, it is recommended for people who have an aversion to swallowing tablets.
It is twice he cost of own brand capsules.
A word of warning ,too much vitamin D can do more harm than good if taken in excess,it can lead to a build up of calcium in the blood leading to possible heart problems.

Not just in the blood, it also causes calcification of soft tissue and organs. It is now also used as a rodenticide as there is no known resistance to it, but unfortunately there is no antidote to it either.

During the winter months, I take a vitamin D supplement of 25 micrograms (1000IU) per day.

The NHS website advises that you should not take supplements of more than 100 micrograms or 4000IU per day but surely if you were going to take any supplement you would check such things?

The problem is that without a blood test no one knows how deficient they are in Vitamin D. However the probability is that many of us are deficient because many of us have spent far less time out and about this year. (a major advantage of our hobby) Darker skinned people tend to have even less Vitamin D. We are taking a vitamin D supplement but between November and probably February March I am taking a double the recommended dose during that time. Agree with Bob watch the Dr John Campbell videos.

I found out the value of Vit D about 12 years ago when I was very ill with a mystery illness which involved severe pain in my joints and extreme fatigue.

I fresh young GP straight from training that I saw instead of my regular veteran GP one day immediately sent me for a Vit D test that came back showing I had virtually no Vit D stored in my body, causing a condition called osteomalacia. She had been made aware of the resurgence of this in her recent training. The result was a course of massive doses of Vit D that worked like a miracle but soon came back after I stopped taking it.

As it turned out, after many, many more tests, it turned out that my body cannot store Vit D efficently because of an autoimmune arthritis resulting in me being on lifetime supplements prescribed by my GP.

Apparently this is quite common with some autoimmune illnesses and so it's not surprising that they have found a link between Vit D and Covid as the more severe symptoms of it are thought to be due to an overactive immune system, the same thing that causes autoimmune conditions.

Nice to see you posting again Bob, Likewise I have not posted on here much lately, like you say!
I have not been out on the Campsites this year due to the Covid situation, but I hope to get a seasonal pitch on the East Coast for next season.

I regularly drink Ribena and eat a lot of Oranges for their Vit C content, I also take a daily multivitamin and mineral capsule, which helps with my Arthritis.

Yes we're both taking it now, I did think about starting it a while back as we moved back to England after living in Spain but then when it was on the news report my OH said 'maybe we should take it, it won't do any harm' so been on it ever since.

My mum always takes cod liver oil capsules. Her 101st birthday is next Monday, 21st. She's still mobile, just a bit unsteady due to sight problems, so uses a stick.

Bacardi capsules have the same affect on me.

Should it be Vitamin D or Vitamin D3?

Either, some say D3 is adsorbed into the body easier but both achieve a similar result.
