From October onwards, I want to start supplementing vitamin D. All the research I have done shows that most adults need between 10 and 15 micrograms daily - at my age 15 is recommended. The trouble is, all the vegan D3 supplements I have found contain 75 micrograms which is way too high. Vitamin D is a fat soluble vitamin and excess is stored and can build up to dangerous levels. I'm beginning to think I may have to compromise my vegan ethics and take regular D3 supplements made from sheep wool. Why do vegan D3 supplements contain such high levels?
