I recently had blood work and the Dr called me and said my Vitamin D levels was low. He told be to take an OTC 2000iu each day until my next visit. By day three, I stopped using this supplement. Bloating, gas, abdominal pain, all affecting sleep patterns. I think I'll spend more time in the sun! BTW I felt great before my physical.
