Or just get some more sun. I had the same issue when I worked graves and literally never saw the sun. 15 minutes a day should do it, just make sure to wear sunscreen. I tried the pills but the made me sick to my stomach.

thats what daughter and hubby said to get more sunlight.
I guess eating the right foods and taking a pill will not be enough.
When it gets warmer I will get more sun.

Living in Ohio it is tough to get Sun in the Winter. My parents bought a Sun Lamp like Grunt said and they swear by it. They do ten minutes a day. Now, if you don't want to spend money on that, just go outside, or sit in a room with lots of windows.

I agree with the above posts. Humans can manufacture Vitamin D in their bodies as long as they are exposed to sunlight.
Deficiencies are linked with bone demineralization (rickets is caused by vitamin D deficiency) and weaker immune system.

Vitamin D is also a fat soluble vitamin, like A, E and K. So it can be stored in our fat tissue.
