    I had a vitamin D deficiency in 2010, after which I began taking a Vitamin D supplement.  Spent 15 minutes in the sun before my daily SPF70 sunblock and got my greatest Vitamin D boost from soy and green leafy veggies. After 6 months of this routine my Vitamin D levels have returned to normal.  As long as they stay this way I will not consider adding Vitamin D via an animal derivative.  Oh heck I would not add an animal derivitave to begin with.  Just give yourself 15 minutes exposed to the sun whether it is cloudy or not.  Take a supplement and eat your veggies.  So much more healthy.
