Taking vitamin D sublingual


I bought regular vitamin d tablets. My physical told me to place them under my tongue. Do I need special vitamins to take them this way?

There are no studies

Hi Allan,

Ignore your Physical, he doesn't know what he's talking about. Just take the pills normally. I don't know why anyone would tell you to take Vitamin d under the tongue. There are ZERO studies on taking vitamin d under the tongue, and you don't even WANT the vitamin d to go into your bloodstream, it needs to be converted by the liver into it's usable form.

The vitamin d that you take doesn't end up in your bloodstream in the same form as you took it, so you don't WANT the vitamin d to go directly to your bloodstream as would happen if you took it under your tongue, you want it to go to the LIVER, where it can be converted into a usable form...

Do place under tongue

Because sublingual absorption takes vitamin D directly into the systemic circulation just like when vitamin D is naturally synthesized in the skin from exposure to sun.
