Have to start supplementing with Vitamin D3. Been looking around but was wondering for those who take Vitamin D3. What are some good brands.?

I was using the generic brand at Vitamin World.

Your body naturally creates vitamin D3 through the sun. I was using it during the winter when I was indoors a lot. It says you are in the US, why not just go outside and catch some rays?

Level of D3 attainable through the sun is nowhere near appropriate amounts for daily values. You'd have to be roasting in the sun each and every day.

NOW is the typical go-to, ~10k IU/day.

I take Nature's Bounty I believe is the brand name. I get it at costco. It's 5,000IU in one small gell pill. One bottle last forever also.

Actually, about 15 minutes in the SUMMER sun in shorts and t shirt will give you all you need for a day.
