Yes. Also, the amount in the milk is negligible. 

 

And the RDAs for D are too low.  They were set when they knew very little about the many things it does.  And like with most nutrients, they were set at the level to prevent some specific and acute disease that were once observable in cultures here and there where it was common to be deficient. Like with vitamin C and scurvy in sailors.  They are are rarely adequate for long term optimal function and health.  Although, the need for some is way overblown.  Like Calcium. You don't need that much calcium. What you need is the other minerals involved in bone formation and function and to not consume so much of things that leach calcium from your bones. Like soft drinks.

What brand of D3 are you taking? I tried so many, and always break out. Some were too "oily" for me, and the megafood brand has yeast in it so I actually broke out from taking them (same with B-complex). What brand of magnesium and calcium worked for you?

I've been taking 2,000 IU of Vitamin D3, daily, for 2 months now. I've also been taking 50,000 IU Vitamin D2, weekly, for two months as well. So far I've seen little improvement in my skin. I still get cysts and my skin is still very oily. I plan on having my Vitamin D levels checked again soon to see how my levels have risen since starting supplementation.

where are you getting your information from? the amount of hormones in milk and dairy is not negligible.

I was talking about the amount of vitamin D added to milk.  It is useless as a source of vitamin D.
