    Does Vitamin D, in pill form, have to be kept refrigerated or is it shelf stable? I read somewhere that fat soluble vitamins should be kept in the refrigerator.

    It's fine for a time at room temp...provided that room temp isn't too warm or humid

    Fridge or freezer are probably optimal. For D it's not about the stability of the cholecalciferol itself but rather the oils in the capsule.

    I was actually looking into getting a magnesium supplement. I get pretty good amounts from diet alone, but from what I understand, PB/Paleo recommendations for magnesium are higher than the standard RDA. What dose and which form of magnesium should I get? Can anyone recommend good brands (as usual, I would prefer the most cost effective with the lowest amount of filler ingredients)?

    FYI in case anyone is wondering: I double-checked, and Innate Response and Juice Plus+ are both made from actual, real, whole food -- not the spray-dried stuff made by feeding synthetic vitamins to yeast or other organisms.

    They are absolutely spray dried....but spray dried concentrates...that's how they get it into a dry form. It is food, however, in that case, it's best just to eat the real food (which is mostly is anyway).

    I agree that eating actual produce is best, of course. I use the supps for those nutrients where our diets tend to fall short, and on the rare days when I don't consume 15+ servings of veggies -- different kinds of veggies.

    Innate isn't spray dried; they use a refractive window drying process. I'm not sure about JP+, though I do know they use a temp-controlled process to avoid nutrient damage.

    I should have been more clear, though, that what I meant was that both companies use real food rather than synthetic-fed yeast. I'll edit.

    (For the record, I'm not affiliated with either company.)

    This is an old posting and I just came across it in GOOGLE. Apparently I need D3, and found drops with cholecalciferol.
    It matters to me what the source is since I'm allergic to cod and to lanolin. Does anyone know FOR SURE where cholecalciferol comes from? One bottle says it's from cod liver oil, but most things I see online say it's from lanolin...who knows for sure? ANYONE?

    Vitamin D is essential for the proper formation of the skeleton. It is vital for bone growth and renewal as it helps our bodies absorb and retain calcium and phosphorus.
