Direct sunlight is natural source of most of our vitamin D3.  "Vitamin D3 regulates the genome, combats (bad/excess) cholesterol and reduces risk of disease.  Vitamin D is the father of all hormones...Vitamin D3 is actually a hormone and a precursor for calcitriol. Calcitriol is a powerful hormone that strengthens bones and renews cells.  Vitamin D regulates 10-15% of the human genome  In addition to helping absorb calcium and magnesium, Vitamin D3 activates the immune system and protects the nervous system."
#1 Drug CAUTION: 
#2 CAUTION: "Cholecalciferol is a main ingredient in vitamin d3 pills...
Vitamin D3 is (a synthetic) manufactured in labs."  (Do not overdose.)
Using (sheep) lanolin as a skin lotion: "Vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol) from either (lanolin
or fish oil) source is the same compound. As explained in the What It Is section of the Vitamin D Supplements Review, vitamin D3 in most supplements has been chemically converted from a compound in lanolin, while that in fish oil is naturally produced (also by conversion of the same compound). Vitamin D3 from lanolin is just pennies per dose and is a less expensive source than from fish oil. Because vitamin D is best absorbed when taken with fats or oils, getting it from fish oil helps assure better absorption, but this can also be achieved by taking vitamin D with a meal which contains some fats/oils."

'For vitamin D3 supplements, mostly (raw) lanolin from sheep's wool is used with the same process of UVB radiation. The sheep's lanolin has the same type of cholesterol that's in human skin. Exposing the sheep's lanolin to UVB radiation to mimic sunshine creates cholecalciferol.  Whether from sunlight exposure on human skin or UVB radiation on lanolin, the cholecalciferol needs to be converted by the liver and kidneys into the pro-hormone (hormone precursor) known as vitamin D3...
Eating fish such as sardines, herring, and catfish that feed considerably on plankton offers the most vitamin D3. Mackerel, cold water salmon, and tuna round out the fish group that helps maintain your vitamin D3 levels.  Be aware of potential toxicity from certain seafood sources. Fresh egg (yolks) from local free range hens also offer a good deal of vitamin D3.'
yeast eating lanolin - - "There are two forms of vitamin D; D2 (ergocalciferol), which is found in plants, and D3 (cholecalciferol), which the bodies of animals (including ours) make when the skin is exposed to sunlight."
