      You can take a supplement or a doctor can prescribe a high dose one. Also getting out in the sun is the best way as your body absorbs it through the sun. I also have the stuck burp feeling and it’s driving me crazy. How long have you had it and do you also feel ear pressure with it. Does it feel like a trapped air bubble? Does your throat gurgle when you swallow saliva ? Sorry for all the questions but this has been so stressful.

      I had an appointment with the doctor 1 month ago.He prescribed me 60000 sachet after every 3 days along with calcium citrate.I started taking the doses but after taking calcium citrate after breakfast I suffered from headache.So I left taking it after 10 days but continued with sachet.Though my reflux problem solved in a few days but then I got joint pain in whole body.Knee pain was more prominent.After a month when i again visited doc I explained him the whole problem.He told me to stop that doses and prescribed me b12,b6,folic acid capsule in morning nd d3(1000iu)+magnesium after dinner.But after few days previous symptoms again came like constant burping.So i am confused what to do?

      To add I have been suffering from this from almost 6 months.Then I didn't know it was due to Vitamin D deficiency.So I regularly consumed PPI.But it didn't improved my condition.

    Hi

    If your going to take a vitamin D supplement make sure you take your vitamin D3 with vitamin K2. They are synergistic.

      Hi

      I take Nu Nutrition 3,000 IU of vitamin D3 and Nu Nutrition 200 IU. There’s no real need for a calcium supplement as appropriate levels of vitamin D will help calcium get through your body better. The supplement you mentioned should be fine as long as the K2 is Menaquinone MK7 as this is a highly absorbsent form of K2. Just remember K2 and vit D3 have to be taken together, to get the full effect and enhance calcium levels. 👍😁

    I take vitamin d and magnesium supplements because PPI's tend to leach these vitamins and I was getting really horrible migraines.

      My doc has prescribed me ppi along with d3 and k2. But i have a doubt that ppi depletes vit d.So what's the real benefit of taking it along with d3?

      I believe that it does deplete vitamin D. My advice is to ask your doc about it.
