Fish Liver Oil vs. Lanolin in Vitamin D3

This is from my earlier post...I didn't know if there was a way to edit my original post so please forgive me for the repeated email below. I left out that the D3 I'm interested in buying has NO Vitamin A in it but uses fish liver oil as the carrier.


Here was my original post below, thanks!:

1. Any differences btwn the 2 ?. Is one preferred over the other?. The thought of sheep's wool is not a pleasant thought, lol!. The one brand I'm interested in buying uses fish liver oil as the carrier and when I called the company they told me the fish could be cod, haddock or pollack.

2. What should I be looking for when I buy D3 and what should I absolutely avoid?

3. Are softgels easily absorbed over tablets or capsules?

Thanks so much and Happy Thanksgiving!!!

I have been told that choclecalciferol is from lanolin and that lanolin is bad for you? Your thoughts? Other sources of vitamin d3 without lanolin?

Lanolin Lotion for D

Is it possible to get a decent quantity of Vitamin D from a lotion? Where could I find such a lotion, if one exists?

Hi Lynn,

No, you will definitely NOT get vitamin d from any lanolin lotions. The lanolin that is used for vitamin d is irradiated and the vitamin d is extracted from it to be put into supplements.

But I have wondered if you could simply rub liquid vitamin d into your skin and have it absorb. But so far, there have been no studies that I have been able to find on that.

This coming winter, I do plan on getting a vitamin d level, then rubbing vitamin d into my skin for a few months, and then getting another level to see if that will bring up my levels.

But until there are some case studies that show that this is possible, I don't recommend trying it out.

Source of Vit D3 that's not from Lanolin

1) I am ALLERGIC to lanolin and I understand that the 2 sources of Vit D3 are Lanolin and Fish oil. I have had 2 episodes recently that the Supplement Companies (Metagenics AND GNC) gave me 2 different answers as to the SOURCE of THEIR Vit D3. How can I be sure that I get the Vit D3 FROM the FISH OIL Source?
ALSO ---

2) I was recently told that I could take Vit D3 tablets from lanolin BECAUSE It is extracted from lanolin, BUT there is no lanolin in it. This does not make sense to me because since it is gotten FROM the lanolin. How could ALL the lanolin -- as its source of the product be eliminated? I am not a chemist, BUT I am trying very hard to get CORRECT information. I do NOT want to get any internal, intestinal, inflammatory symptoms that would be very difficult --if not impossible----- to correctly diagnose.
Thank you so much for your help !!!

Which is better and easier to digest the one made from Fish oil or the one from Lanolin? I take them with food but have IBS which makes my stomach very sensitive.

Is it possible to get a vitamin D supplement that is natural? I cannot take the one that is made from Lanolin? I also cannot take supplements that have herbs, preservatives, dairy, wheat, etc. Thank you so much.

Vitamin D From Lanolin

by Stacy

I read that the source of the vit d3 is from lanolin from sheep. Is this true? If a person is allergic to sheep or lanolin, would this create a problem in taking vit d3? Also this would make it a problem for vegetarians too, wouldn't it?

My level is very low - at 20 and my adult daughter just found out hers is at 12.5. Neither of our doctors told us to take more than the small recommended dose the FDA says to take. Doesn't this seem exceedingly low if there is already a deficiency?

Thanks for responding and letting me ask questions.

Stacey
