I have been told by my doctor to take vitamin D supplements during the winter (more precisely, from October to April), but is the idea not that the sun will then provide you with enough vit D during the remaining months? What about summers when you hardly see the sun for days or even weeks on end, as is often the case in this part of Europe...would it be a good idea to take vit D supplements all year, or could it build up (to possibly toxic levels?) in the body, being a fat-soluble vitamin unlike vits B and C which, as far as I know, you can never over consume...?
