Sunlight!: Of will course you can't measure how much vitamin d you will produce from your exposure to sunlight, but since getting at least 2 hours of sunlight will l likely allow you to produce enough vitamin d not to require supplements, it may be worth trying. Use sunscreen. Vita d is important for strong bones. Add fatty fishes, such as mackeral, sardines and tuna to your diet to get additional vitamin d.

Dose is too high: As a maintainance dose in my opinion is too high and can be dangerous unless very deficient and not loaded with a course.
