Re: vitamin D Leor

Leor, I take D3, or cholecalciferol, which is found in fish liver oils. The other form is ergocalciferol which is generally added to foods. If I recall correctly vitamin D doesn't cause calcium stone formation but an excess can cause calcium deposits in soft tissue but this excess is REALLY high - like 50,000 or more IU daily over a long period of time, one or two years! And not enough D causes calcium deposits too.

Winter doldrums for me, so I'm going to include a remark made by a director of a health institute & a link to what she mentions for you, if you'll excuse my laziness.

from Jenny Thompson, Health Sciences Institute in Baltimore:
"On the other hand, for years, nutritionally oriented physicians have been teaching us about the benefits of much higher levels of vitamin D, and the best ways to boost our intake. For example, alternative medicine pioneer Dr. Jonathan Wright urges everyone to get between 1600 and 2000 IUs of vitamin D each day, and as much as 4000 IUs for those of us over 40! According to Dr. Wright, it's impossible for most people to get enough vitamin D from the sun alone - and he discourages the use of dairy products because of the many other health concerns they may raise. Instead, Dr. Wright recommends other food sources like salmon and sardines - or even good old-fashioned cod liver oil, which provides over 1300 IUs of vitamin D per tablespoon."
<<Personally, I'd gag on cod liver oil straight. I use halibut liver oil capsules.>>
