Tasmania Vitamin D official recommendation 20 up to 200 ng – March 2014

Tasmania is an island just below Australia


Tasmania gets a lot of UV


Tasmania gets less UV than Australia


Tasmanis gets even less UV than Hawaii


Yet, Tasmania tells people to stay out of the hot summer sun

Does not seem logical. Suspect they have been too influenced by the sun scare in Australia

Lots of documents at


Some of which are attached at the bottom of this page

Not much vitamin D available in capsules in Tasmania

  • The Australian Register of Therapeutic Goods (ARTG) at 1 October 2012 lists over 150 items as containing vitamin D.
    Appears that the highest dose vitamin D capsule is 1,000 IU
  • If need to restore: 50,000 IU/ month = Recommended supplementation dosing regimens for adults with risk factors for moderate-severe deficiency

Comment by VitaminDWiki

Tasmania recommends restoring adults with moderate deficiency risk factors with 50,000 IU/month
but that the highest dose over-the counter dose size is 1,000 IU.
Is the 50,000 dose size only available via a prescription?
