How do you get Vitamin D? The best way to get Vitamin D is from the sun. When your skin is exposed to sunlight, it produces Vitamin D. However, not everyone can get enough Vitamin D from the sun. ..If you live in a cold climate or if you have dark skin, or you just happen to spend too much time inside (like most of us do), you may need to take supplements. If you are going to supplement Vitamin D, you can supplement up to 5,000IU safely, with the outer ‘safe’ range being 10,000 IU daily in certain cases. Science has not shown that our bodies ‘care’ where we are getting the vitamin D from whether it is sun exposure or through supplementation. So next time you’re at your local grocery store, don’t pass up this effective and VERY cheap supplement!
