I've decided to put together a resourceful Vitamin D thread for you all. I've had a thread on this in the past (as well as some documented information in some of my logs), but I wanted to put together a more broad spectrum wealth of resources for everyone to read and enjoy. I will continue to update the information over time, as well as help to answer any questions that you all may have.


Scientific evidence is mounting with the myriad of factors/processes Vitamin D not only influences (at the cellular level and gene expression), but also regulates (both up and down regulation).

This thread is a work in progress, and I still have much information to add. :D

suposedly vit D aids performance especially for athletes in the northern hemisphere with little access to sun year round.

Wonder what would be the best dose as a prerformance supp??

Thanks, guys. I have a ton more to add, but my time has been limited. I'll get to it hopefully in the coming weeks.

I also plan to put together a post on how vitamin D is stored, activated, and the physiological/pathophysiological processes involved within the body.

excellent addition to a cutting cycle -even more useful for a cut than for a bulk

Yes I would agree, especially if you add in some injectable B12. Makes a cut easier and makes you feel a lot less sluggish when you aren't on stims, or you are coming down

I just had mine tested and it was fine and I live in Alaska. I know lots are deficient up here but I dont get any more sun than any of them. Milk must do a body good because I dont take a D supplement.
