You're right. The recommendations are for 800 IU. But up to 5000 IU is safe and helps with inflammation. I think I was confusing with another vitamin.

My rules:
1) eat real food - more vegetables, moderate meat, moderate fruits, less grains, less sugar, less vegetable oils.
2) exercise - moderate intensity cardio, sprinting, heavy lifting, dedicated stretching and mobility.
3) live - relax, de-stress, meditate.
