Hello everyone,

I've been a long time reader, but finally decided to join in on the discussion .

I've recently had my vitamin D levels tested, and, not surprisingly, found out they were a bit low (a level of 32). Prior to that for a few months I've been, almost daily, taking 5,000 IU a day of this brand:

Amazon.com: Vitamin D3 5000 IU, 360 Mini Softgels (GMO-free, Preservative-free, Soy-free, USP Grade Natural Vitamin D in Organic Olive Oil): Health & Personal Care

Now, I don't know if my levels were even lower before, or whether this particular brand does not work very well. So, I wanted to see if anyone here has any experience with it? It seems like the best rated D3 on Amazon, but now I am a little suspicious.

Also, I keep hearing Carlson being mentioned as a good brand. If my current brand is no good, I am thinking of switching over. However, Carlson has regular D3, and also, "Solar D". It appears Solar D is just D3 in fish oil. Am I right or this something else? It's a bit difficult to find detailed information on this.

Thank you!
