More compliance (6X fewer opportunities to forget)

Weekly high concentration gets D into cells much faster
   True for most chemistries
   High gradients overcome Vitamin D Receptor limitations

44 percent of successful RCTs in VitaminDWiki had used non-daily dosing


Note Humans and animals have evolved to go for days with many nutrients

(19) Doctors often reluctant to prescribe Vitamin D because:

  • Can have side affects If not adjust cofactors with high dose
  • Would require ignoring the position of the medical profession on supplements.
  • Risk being sued if exceed standard of care
  • Experts do not agree on how much is needed
  • Doctors are rarely been trained in nutrition
  • Medical training has an emphasis on treatment, not prevention
  • Doctors have tried prescribing small vitamin D doses recommended by govts., but with minimal success
  • Doctors often can only prescribe D2 anyway - become used to its not working
  • Doctors have too little time to read outside of their specialty
  • No profit for Big Pharma, nor hospitals, so doctors not rewarded
  • The Vitamin D dose needed often varies by 4X between individuals for many health problems
  • Doctors are told to not prescribe more than 4,000 IU – so miss out on many of the benefits
  • Doctors are used to monotherapy, single pill, of a single size for everyone
