Doctors have recently found that the majority of those who live in cool climates -whether omnivore, vegetarian or vegan- are vitamin D deficient. All this is in spite of the fact that some fish contain vitamin D and milk, cheese and ice cream are fortified with Vitamin D for those who follow an omnivore or vegetarian diet. For vegans rules are the same. People who do not get adequate sun exposure or Vitamin D fortified foods are at the risk of developing Vitamin D deficiency unless they supplement.
Vitamin D deficiency classically causes rickets and osteomalacia (thin bones) and is more common in children who are vitamin D deficient. Prolonged breastfeeding is a cause of rickets in some children who don’t get enough vitamin D in their breast milk. Excessive use of sunscreens can cause vitamin D deficiency. In adults, vitamin D deficiency can cause bone weakness and boney pain.
Those who are especially encouraged to supplement with vegan vitamin D include those greater than age 50 that are at increased risk of developing vitamin D deficiency. People with limited sun exposure should also consider supplementation, especially if they are homebound and live in Northern Latitudes. People with dark skin don’t get enough Vitamin D in their system. Those with fat malabsorption need to be supplemented with vitamin D and other fat soluble vitamins. Those who are obese and have a BMI greater than 30 often are vitamin D deficient and should supplement with vitamin D.*
Vitamin D is essential in healthy bones and very important for those with fragile bones and an increased risk of bone fractures. Insufficient vitamin D can contribute to bone loss associated with aging by reducing calcium absorption.
The recommended dose is 2400 IU per day, although doses up to 3000 mg/day have been taken by some individuals with known deficiency.

Overall Rating for Vegan Vitamin D2 2400 IU 90 Tablets
|(based on 1 review)|
By A Deficient Dee from Indianapolis, IN on July 16, 2012
My Dr. suggested I take 5000 IU of vitamin D for 3 months to alleviate my vitamin D deficiency. I tried a 5000 IU vitamin D3 capsule which caused all kinds of gastric problems no matter when I took it. Then I tried 1000 IU capsules of D3 taken through out the day. I had the same bad sick results. He then suggested vitamin D2 which you cannot find in any health food store or pharmacy. So I searched the web and found the vitamin D2 though Pure Formulas. I ordered it and was pleased because it was so reasonably priced and I got it in a few days. I have been taking this vitamin D2 for two weeks now with no gastric side effects. I love that the tablet is about the size of a baby aspirin and I can take two tablets at one time with a meal or with just a snack with no adverse effects. I highly recommend this to anyone who has a vitamin D deficiency and who get sick taking D3. I will definitely be a constant customer.
Pros:Small tablet size and does not cause gastric upset like D3 did.
I would recommend this item to a friend.
