Re: Before a nutrient level blood test, how essential is it

hi JL. I understand your reasoning for the washout, its just being in the UK I get very little sunlight, so i would supplement with D3 regardless, and as i already had my levels tested when taking 5000 IU (including 5 day wash out) it would be good to know my D3 levels when taking 10,000IU without t...

Re: Has there been any new advances in CCSVI since 2011?
