Seasonal too: One reason so many people have low vit d levels is because we don't get out enough, and have too little sun exposure. There is often a drop in vit d during the winter months. In addition to supplements, you may want to make an effort to get out in the sunlight more. Not "sunbathing", but physical activity.
