I supplement with vitamin D3- 1.000 ng/ml x 2,3 daily. This daily supplementation puts my serum D3 levels at about 35 ng/ml when I get my blood levels tested. According to the Endocrine Society, vitamin D3 blood levels below 20 ng/ml is considered to be deficient.
Why? I am a long-term cancer survivor living with a number of long-term and late stage side effects. I consider adequate blood levels of vitamin D3 to be one of the many cheap, evidence-based therapies that helps me manage my
I ‘m not saying that vitamin D3 supplementation is a cure-all or silver bullet. The studies linked and excerpted below explain that D3 is central to brain, heart, bone, and immune system functioning.
Vitamin D3 would be classified as a wonder drug if someone could patent it. But they can’t!

“…Therefore, looking at receptors for 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D, they were found in the intestine, bone, and kidney, which regulate calcium metabolism.
Then we began to realize that basically every tissue and cell in your body has a vitamin D receptor, and the obvious question is, why would they be there? There’s now a large amount of evidence to suggest that immune cells, colon, breast, skin, and other cells in your body can activate vitamin D locally…
As a result, there are a multitude of association studies that have related vitamin D deficiency with increased risk for autoimmune disorders like type 1 diabetes, multiple sclerosis, and rheumatoid arthritis, and increased risk for cardiovascular disease, neurocognitive dysfunction, infectious diseases, and some malignancies…
We know that vitamin D is essential to health and we know it’s important to avoid vitamin D deficiency…
“Recently, a new, observational study investigates for the first time the presence of vitamin D in the brain and its potential effect on cognitive outcomes.
The study found that better cognitive function is associated with people who have higher concentrations of vitamin D in their brains. Before the study, it had been unclear whether vitamin D was present in the brain at all…”
“While vitamin D supplementation had no effect on the six minute walk test distance, it effectively restored normal levels of 25-OH vitamin D3 and was associated with improvements in cardiac function, resulting in an increase of left ventricular ejection fraction by 6.07 percent, from an average baseline of approximately 26 percent.
After 12 months, patients who took vitamin D had greater improvement in echocardiographic measures of LV function, LV dimensions and volumes than patients who took a placebo.
According to the authors, these findings suggest that taking vitamin D supplements may lead to beneficial reverse remodeling. Patients with chronic heart failure are also frequently deficient in vitamin D and low levels are associated with more severe disease and worse outcomes in these patients.
“New therapies for serious chronic conditions including chronic heart failure are often expensive, increasingly technical and frequently fail to meet the rigorous demands of large phase 3 clinical trials,” the authors write.
“Vitamin D might be a cheap and safe additional option for chronic heart failure patients and may have beneficial effects on multiple features of the syndrome.”
