Answered by Dr. Oumou Diakite

Hello,

Thank you for reaching out to Dr. Galen. Please find the below response to your query.

 

Pure Encapsulations Vitamin D3 is considered one of the best brands for vitamin D3 supplementation. When taken at normal doses, vitamin D3 typically does not cause any side effects. However, high doses can lead to adverse effects such as vomiting, headache, constipation, weakness, nausea, and hypercalcemia. It's important to note that large doses of vitamin D3 should not be taken by pregnant or lactating women without consulting a healthcare professional.
