In brief: Surprising

That in puerto rico your vitamin d would be low.
You should only need 15 minutes in the sun with skin exposed the size of your hands for your body to make enough vitamin d. Youwould likely notice a difference as a 25 yo male. The fda says you only need 400-800 iu daily, but some doctors suggest 5, 000 iu daily. Consult your doctor, or research the answer for yourself. Calcium too is important.
