Guidelines Call for Increase in Vitamin D

Under my doctor's advisement I've been taking 2,000 IU per day for about 18 months. My last bone density test was even better than the previous one, which was good, & my nails haven't looked as good since I was taking prenatal vitamins. Thought I'd past along this info. after coming across this article.

Have you seen a difference? I was surprised about the positive results I experienced.

You know I've tried taking cod liver oil, even freezing it before I swallow it, but it keeps repeating for hours. In the end I gave up trying. I heard there's one that doesn't dissolve until further down in the digestive tract. I might give that a try.
As a kid I was force fed CLO by the spoonful.

I'm not sure because when I started taking it was at the same time my thyroid levels were completely funky. I can't tell which symptoms were caused by low vitamin D or low thyroid.
