Absorbing Vitamin D3

Monday, 12 March 2012 08:11 AM

Question: I have taken 5,000 IU of vitamin D3 capsules daily for many years. Yet despite increasing my dose to 10,000 IU a day my blood levels were still low. What could be the problem?

Dr. Blaylock's Answer:

Some people have difficulty absorbing vitamin D3. Keep in mind that most vitamin D3 is oil-soluble and is best absorbed if taken with a fatty meal. There are water-soluble forms that are better absorbed. Mercola has a spray (Sunshine Mist) form of vitamin D that is well-absorbed at doses of 6,000 IU each.
