That's a good question. Currently there is no research on this. Usually vitamin D deficiency is a dietary issue/lack of sunlight. If you are not getting adequate sun exposure (be careful not to get burnt), you can supplement with vitamin D2 or D3. The guidelines say anywhere from 2000-10,000 IU's per day.
