    I'm familiar with Vitamin D for energy but I have not tried Vitamin D3. I researched about the latter's benefits and If I'm correct, It is for bone's health and immune function. This could really sounds great for the body and a good supplement.

    I have been researching vit D for years. I generally get mine by taking 1000mg of Codliver Oil daily.... as the oil also confers other benefits.
    The main (VitD) benefit seems to be (and this is just my experience...shared by others) that my immune system is good. I can share a bed with a snotty, sweaty, sneezing, coughing and otherwise lurgy ridden MrsMoors without suffering much more than a sniffle the following week.
    There are cardio-vascular benefits, which are of interest to runners... chief among which is improved elasticity of blood vessels.

    The other thing is that I make sure that if the sun is out...even in Feb, I will run with plenty of skin exposed.

    If you are taking Vit D then you should ensure you get K2 as well - they work synergystically and without K2 the vitD may not be effect. it's all to do with how the calcium is shuttled around the body and how its kept in the cells so it can work where needed

    Back on it for this winter.
    Roll on 21 Dec and the start of lighter nights.
    A quote,

    My wife takes it as part of her MS treatment and it seems to help her, so I take a bit when I'm feeling a bit low from winter blues.
