1g of colecalciferol is equivalent to 40,000,000 IU. That means 1 IU is equivalent to 0.025µg.For your information:

Please note:

Aciferol is available at several doses including some considered to be higher than the usual daily recommended amount to be taken.

Recommended daily allowances (RDAs) for vitamin D are mostly in the range of 600 – 1000iu daily.  Tablets or capsules of vitamin D containing larger amounts are only intended for weekly administration, and are high dosage preparations.

It is strongly recommended that you consult a healthcare professional such as your doctor or pharmacist before taking any high doses (greater than 1000 IU daily) of any vitamin D preparation, including Aciferol.

When high doses of Vitamin D are taken for long periods, there is the potential for adverse effects such as excess calcium in the blood and urine (hypercalcaemia and hypercalciuria) which may lead to deposition of calcium in soft tissue, the formation of calcium stones in the kidneys and other sites, and the potential for irreversible kidney and heart damage.  This is especially the case in people who have the rare disease of sarcoidosis, who should always consult their doctor before taking vitamin D.
