Y'all should come to Texas for the summer. Some days in July seem to go like this:
5 minutes outside - adequate Vitamin D
10 minutes outside - sunburn
15 minutes outside - heatstroke
20 minutes outside - death by incineration
Y'all would love it!

Well, not so much a rant, but we're in a same but different boat here in the South. The projected weather for the next eight days is in the low to high 90s. I don't go out much in that. I get a whole lot more sun September through April than I do May through August. And I'm thinking my a/c doesn't give off much VitD.
But I take high doses of VitD mostly because I've noticed that if I'm a slacker about it, I get moody and even more reclusive than I normally am.

As you age your skin becomes less able to absorb Vit. D. Also in hot summers I don't go out as much as I used to. So I take 8000iu Vit. D3 daily and don't complain. I'm grateful good companies provide good vitamins to keep me healthy.
