Idk, I think its a pretty simple solution if you're habitually low on something simple like Vitamin D. A bottle of vitamin D capsules costs less than one serving of salmon lol. I love salmon, cod, and sword. I'll pass on the liver and tuna tho unless it's sushi!

Getting enough vitamin d through sunlight exposure is almost impossible above the 45th parallel. I just learned that this year.

I am in N. Carolina so we get plenty of sunshine. Exposure of the skin to sunlight is the best way to get Vitamin D. I own 48 acres, heavily wooded and the nearest house is 3/4 mile away, and no house can be seen from my house. Every day I put a chair out in the driveway and sit there for 15 minutes soaking up the sunshine

It is not a pretty sight. But, this is a picture of me from twenty years ago, before the accident.
