Vitamin D regulates the calcium and phosphorus levels in the blood by promoting their absorption from food in the intestines, and by promoting re-absorption of calcium in the kidneys, which enables normal mineralization of bone and prevents hypocalcemic tetany. It is also needed for bone growth and bone remodeling by osteoblasts and osteoclasts.
You can get Vitamin D from staying in the sun, from milk.

Vitamin E Cautions
Can you take too many vitamins? You may be able to take TOO HIGH of dosages of many vitamins.
If you are taking anti-coagulants (drugs which slow the blood coagulation) or suspect any type of bleeding problem, check with your doctor before taking vitamin E. It can have an anticoagulant effect.
In a Finnish study, vitamin E was suspected of contributing to hemorrhagic or "bleeding stroke" in smokers, although most experts believe that the 50-IU dose used was too low to alter blood coagulation or to have other beneficial or detrimental effects.
Extra high doses of vitamin E can cause reactions including hot flashes.
Use Moderation in your vitamin intake.
