I have a confession to make.
For the past week I’ve been overdosing.
Being in Washington state is awesome except for one thing…
There is a distinct lack of sun.
So we’ve been taking Vitamin D supplements.
The container on the left is my husband’s. And I bought the one on the right.
Now my husband started taking Vitamin D after being tested by the Navy. He was put on Vitamin D supplements.
I’ve take calcium supplements because I’m lactose intolerant. So after the summer I decided to start taking Vitamin D.
Now I found the 2000IU at Target. So I thought awesome I’ll just take 2 which would be 4000IU.
I’ve been taking 2 for a while… except for this week. You see this week I had a brain fart.
I thought the bottle said 1000IU so I started taking 4.
Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and then on Friday I look at the bottle after taking 4 pills and I realize my mistake.
My husband comes home and I tell him I’ve been overdosing on Vitamin D and explain and he laughs. Then says “well now I know why you’ve been so chipper this week”.
I’ve had 8000IU of Vitamin D for the past few days. Now for the record the recommended highest dosage of Vitamin D is 4000IU a day.
Because we live in Washington state with overcast I went with the highest recommended dosage. It’s helped. I’ve seen a difference.
Now laugh at my mistake. Brain fart FTW!
