Turns out Vitamin A as retinol can negate your vitamin D.
Though not as beta carotene. Though most supplements are beta carotene (it is a form that is only used if your body needs it) I have been playing around all year with various different supplements and I don't know for sure what was in those (though now I have a centrum vitamin that is 75% beta carotene).
Check your supplement. You could be shooting yourself in the foot.
Natural News is a notorious fake news site. Don't believe a word they tell you!
For any vegans out there, you can get plants based D3 these days, it's been around for a few years. Look up "vegan D3" or "Vitashine". I think it's made from some sort of mushroom. I switched to it as I wasn't doing well on the prescription stuff: the dose was far too low (800iu), it was very far from being vegan, and it was bundled with calcium carbonate which was wrecking my stomach acid.
