Vitamin D3 really good for u. My vitamin D is low....?

Then take Vit D!!!: Low D is associated with chronic pain, increased risk of heart disease & cancer & reduced longevity. In spring & summer we can get adequate D from mid-day sun without protection. In fall & winter the only way for EVERYONE in the US (except deep South) to get enough D is to take D3- most adults need 5-8000 iu of D3/day for optimal levels.
