Most everyone except those that live in sunny year-round locales need supplementation of vitamin d to attain a level of around 60 which is the range one should seek.

ok, let me get this straight. You are asking if it is primal to take supplements? Mark Sisson (and he's my guru) is a supplement salesman (http://primalblueprint.com/categories/Store/Supplements/) -- I think you will be good on that front.

As for calcium, Sisson is not anti-dairy. If you tollerate dairy, then drink milk for your calcium.

Probably better to have dairy than to take calcium supplements (assuming you tolerate dairy).

For a true Primal lifestyle you would probably not be using a computer or electricity. You'd be in a cave eating berries and meat that you killed. Supplement away IMO, but do some research on what your foods are bringing in the way of the nutrients before swallowing pills.

i dont see why you would limit your ability to live a good healthy life for an ideology. (note: k2 may also be important for boneish/calciumish things)

thats pretty much veganism/vegetarianism....
