Limit a to 5000 iu if pregnant. ...Read more

Your Doc's advice is best. Too much/too little is not good. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Yes: Building healthy bones & teeth. While your bones provide an abundant supply of calcium for your developing baby, you can insure you're not depleted of this vital mineral by taking 1500mg of calcium and 400 units of vitamin d daily while pregnant and breastfeeding too.
