Add: Vitamin D also reduces the levels of pro-inflammatory cytokines (which increase inflammation).

Just yesterday, my chiropractor asked if I was taking D3. He's very knowledgable about the biochemistry of nutrition.
I told him I was taking about 1400 iu a day and he said that was way too low. He is taking 10,000/day and one of his nurses is taking 5,000 and has seen great improvement. She's feeling healthier and lost warts which she'd had for years. I, personally, will do some reasearch before I'd take 10,000.
3 years ago an internist I saw gave me prescription D3 that I took once a week. The pill was 50,000 units. I don't remember why I quit. I don't remember that I felt better at that dose. So 10,000 a day isn't that different.
I've started at 4,000 just today.
