Never supplemented with it before, was quite apprehensive about it actually till I talked with mr.cooper.
If I had to guess I would say this is just placebo at this point. Maybe if after another week or two I feel the same then it could be the d3.
If D3 increases testosterone no wonder your appetite would be increased as well, I have been using it for almost 3 years now only positive things to report so far
I'm another one who tends to supplement with D more in the winter than summer for obvious reasons. I do think it has an impact on my seasonal affective disorder, but that could literally all be in my head

I been on HRT therapy since July, everything was okay, but then I started sliding off...less sperm, less erections and less thoughts about sex. I couldn't figure it out...till these past 2 weeks. I had stopped taking vit D and never really cared or thought about, I thought it was just one of those supplements that couldn't hurt. Without thinking about it, I started taking it again (the top of my refrigerator is like a *** store shelf) and all of a sudden, morning wood is back...started thinking about sex again...and blowing loads again. I couldn't figure it out, went over all my daily supplements...checked my test bottle, just about everything and then I realized that the only thing different was adding vit D. Vitamin D for me rocks.
Placebo or not, if its improved your quality of life then that's good for you.
Vitamin D supplementation doesn't prevent or reduces symptoms and duration of the common cold when 25(OH)D levels are sufficient:

A deeper look into the paper of the OP is quite interesting. The Vit D group consumed more calories overall, and vit D seemed to stimulate appetite as the change in caloric consumption after 12 weeks was much higher in the vit D group.
The vit D group had an obvious decline in PTH levels, showing that supplemental calcium and Vit D are sufficient for raising blood calcium levels (if you didn't already know this). Statistical significance isn't the be all, end all.
BUUUUUUUT, here's a figure that ergolog conveniently left out in their latest article:
So absolute fat mass trended towards an increase over placebo in the vit D group, yet the waist-to-hip ratio decreased. So ergolog's extrapolations are actually quite false. It would appear that vit D alters fat distribution and negatively affects overall body comp, as suppversity concluded.

The above is my own opinion and does not reflect the opinion of PES
Should I stop taking my vitamin D?
confuzzled...will stop for now
the lessen here is more is not always better. If you are vit D deficient then supplementation may be beneficial for you but if you are not AND are mega dosing vitD (which seems to be a popular trend) then it may NOT be as beneficial for you as one might think.
