Vitamin D - annual supply for less than $12

The Mayo Clinic summarized the results of studies on the benefits of vitamin D supplementation on their medical news pages.

Recommended dose is around 1000 International Units of vitamin D-3 daily. Currently $8.88 will buy you 300 capsules, which is an annual cost of less than $12.

Carlson offers a higher potency, 2000 I.U., in a 360 size bottle, very nearly an annual supply (one daily) for $11.09.

The protection of vitamin D doesn't need to be expensive. It's especially important if you live in Northern climates where you may not get enough sun exposure in the wintertime.
