How much Vitamin D should Women Consume? (Video 1 min)

Dr. Garland briefly discusses how much vitamin D per day is recommended for a woman throughout her life. "Since one of the key periods in life for supplementation is when you are an infant, and that's from birth until about one year, the National Academy of Science level, that's the upper level with no adverse effects, is about 1000, well actually is 1000 IU per day. Now, it can go up to 1800 with no adverse effects, but the National Academy of Science recommendation for the upper limit for an infant is 1000 International Units of vitamin D3 per day.

And after that age, anywhere from age one through the rest of your life, the recommend amount by our group is 2000 International Units a day and that again, is a National Academy of Science level for which there are no adverse effects known and for which theres considerable benefit."
