Osteoporosis runs in my family. Because of that, my mom and I have taken Vitamin D for years. I wanted to add that there are Vitamin D supplement side effects if taken improperly.
My best friend was taking 3 different Vitamin D supplements because she doesn’t drink milk and was worried she wasn’t getting enough Vitamin D. Over several months, she became nauseated often and had no appetite. She was very weak and became dehydrated.
After several trips to the doctor, it was determined that she had Vitamin D toxicity. He took her off of the Vitamin D but because it is stored in fat cells, it took time for it to come out of her system.
That was 2 years ago and she is fine now. She takes 1 Vitamin D tablet a day.
