Your Good Health: Instead of taking multivitamins, eat a healthy diet

Calcium that comes from the diet, on the other hand, does not induce such a spike in blood levels.

Also, part of the calcium bonds with oxalate, preventing that chemical — a major part of many kidney stones — from being absorbed. High dietary calcium reduces the risk of stones.

The effect of vitamin D is not as clear. It seems that having low vitamin D is a risk for forming stones, so many experts will treat low vitamin D levels in people with kidney stones. I don’t know your exact situation. It may be that your vitamin D level is normal or high, and you just don’t need supplementation.

The most recent studies have consistently shown that most of the vitamins in a multivitamin tablet (with the exception of vitamin D) do not improve health or prevent illness, so I don’t recommend multivitamins anymore. I would encourage a healthy diet with plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables.

Save your money on the vitamin tablets.

Dear Dr. Roach:

Is it ok to take calcium with vitamin D and a multivitamin?

I ask because my multivitamin already contains 400 IU of vitamin d.


Calcium needs vitamin D (and magnesium) to be absorbed.

There is some debate going on in the medical community as to what is the safe upper limit or maximum daily intake of vit-D. The old limit was 2,000 IU, but some researchers believe


Yes, it is ok to take these together.

Is it safe to take a multivitamin and a Vitamin D tablet, if you have a slight Vitamin D deficiency?



Yep. The overdose for vitamin D is like 100 times greater than in the pills for an adult

overdose around 100,000 IU.
Normal pill dose 1,000 IU


Vitamin D is a common deficiency, because so many of us never get out in the sun anymore, but it is sort of hard to get it balanced just right.

You might want to monitor it with a blood test after you have been on the D for awhile. --
