Is it safe to take 5, 000 units of vitamin d & omega-3 along with my prenatal vitamins? Is it ok to take them both before and after pregnancy?
Is it safe to take cal-c-vita ( mainly 1000mg vitamin C & 250mg calcium & 300ui vitamin d & 15mg vitamin b6) during pregnancy?
Probably not enough!: Most adults need to take about 5000 iu of vit. D3 to achieve optimal levels. However, in spring & summer if you spend time in the midday sun without sunscreen you don't need to take any. In general people don't get toxic unless taking at least 40, 000 iu/day for months, so vit d has a wide margin of safety. I advise taking vit a & k along with d for maximum benefits. Limit a to 5000 iu if pregnant. ...Read more
