I am extremely sensitive to lanolin, cannot even get close to wool without itching. I am also allergic to shellfish. Is there a lanolin free and shellfish-free vitamin d I can take?

Hi Sandy,

You can see my previous threads on this. There are three choices for those with allergy to lanolin. And no one need worry about shellfish allergy, since Vitamin D does not come from shellfish.

You can see my threads on this topic here:

Source of Vitamin D that's not from Lanolin


Natural Vitamin D Without Lanolin

Your two best choices are:

1) Use the beautiful Arizona sun for free!

2) Vitamin D3 Made from Algae

Fish oils

Some vitamin D has fish oils .. Is that safe for someone with a seafood allergy? I think it's D3.

What kind of seafood allergy?

What kind of seafood allergy are you talking about. Most people who have such an allergy are allergic to shellfish. But fish are not shellfish. Shellfish are a type of crustacean. If you just have a shellfish allergy, and you can eat salmon, then you are fine. Most of the fish oil brands are either salmon oil or small fish such as herring or sardines. If you have any questions, simply get a lanolin or algae based brand instead. 99% of all brands are lanolin based anyway.
