The article uses the historical recommendation for vitamin D daily intake to improve serum vitamin D levels (10 micrograms = 400 IU), however scientific evidence points that the adult dose should be between 800-1000 IU/day to achieve a normal vitamin D level, as per

Therefore, Vitamin D supplement intake should be around 20-25 micrograms (800-1000 IU)/day.
