    Interesting. Looks like the body dumps what it doesn't need and so over supplementing daily with d 2 or d3 can be counterproductive? Also, women are better absorbing Vitamin d generally than men. Maybe this is related to a need for higher calcium uptake?

    So I think the take out is d3 is better than d2 for increasing levels, but don't take doses daily.... take them Fortnightly? I think their sample was getting some sunlight (<10 hrs per week). Perhaps getting the daily 15 min face and arms and then topping up Fortnightly with d3 would be a good regime? Perhaps go weekly in the winter? (I just made that last bit up)
