Say, Amanda.....

Have you happenned to read any of the relatively recent "health" articles stating that people who drink milk as adults have significantly higher levels of Vitamin D and as a consequence were healthier than non-milk drinkers?

I'd read SO much about how terrible the Vitamin D-2 in milk was, and how it allegedly was not enough for the body, that I had NO idea that there was ANY correlation between dairy foods and high Vitamin-D levels.

Except for a short time in my 20s, and except when I'm seriously low-carb, I've always had milk every single day .... therefore, I no longer believe any of that stuff about how terrible Vit.D-2 is, and I'm certain that I do NOT need any Vitamin D-3 supplement which invariable creates terrible symptoms in me - UNLESS it is from sunlight.

Thanks for all your previous information about this.

And yes, I've heard parts of those hour long commercials for the Vitamin D-3 from the guy who runs the Vit.D.Council, and he's put LOTS of other things in it, not 'just' magnesium, but omega-3s and all sorts of stuff.

I have heard construction workers get kidney stones due to drinking high amounts of iced tea - not sure of the mechanism. When I take too high D3, I feel sick. I feel like I have a sunburn, nausea, headache. I just halfed my dose to 5000 and it was fine. I do take magnesium in pill form and in foot baths.

You can only get too much vit D with supplements. Your skin stops making it when you have had enough.

I had no idea.

So that means that the reason I can spend hours in the sun and never get any Vitamin D toxicity symptoms is because my skin isn't making any....

I've never read that, I've only read that the skin can produce 20,000 IU in an afternoon in the sun.... so I was really curious why I always feel so good spending time in the sunshine, but if I take a capsule of D-3, I have reactions within 24 hours.

LOL

Thank you for sharing.
