If you are supplementing with Vitamin D you should also look into Vitamin K2. K2 helps D to absorb calcium into your bones (where you want it) and helps Vitamin A remove calcium from your veins (where you don't want it).

An interesting read: "Vitamin K2 and the Calcium Paradox" - https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0062320041




I eat quite a lot of hard cheese, high in Vit.K2 and Vit.D, apparently; though it has a reputation for being an unhealthy luxury item. Seems the other Vit.K2 rich foods, like Salami, have similarly unhealthy images.

Natto, https://chriskresser.com/vitamin-k2-the-missing-nutrient/, apparently is a good source that I'd never heard of before AFAIR.
