Poliquin is shooting for a higher blood value (100) than most other groups are, including the Vitamin D council.

The upper end of LabCorp's vitamin D test range is 100...I personally wouldn't push that much with patients because I would not want their PCP to freak out that they're over the top end of the range (even though toxicity supposedly doesn't start until a blood level of 200+).

Always remember that Poliquin likes to be over-the-top to get attention.

That said, I do ~25,000iu twice a week instead of every day.
