    Is this good deal on Vitamin D3?

    Primal Blueprint Expert Certification
    GNC Vitamin D-3 5000 - GNC - GNC

    2 for $10. Is this a good brand to buy? I always though softgell vit. D is better for you?

    thanks!

    Not good. You must insist on the softgel with Olive Oil ( Not Soy Oil )

    This is a good example:
    Healthy Origins, Vitamin D3, 5,000 IU, 360 Softgels - iHerb.com

    I had a very difficult time correcting my deficiency with D3 pills. When I switched to D3 drops in olive oil my levels went up very quickly. I think some people do fine on the pills though.

    awesome, better deal than I had. So is it essential you take it with olive oil in the capsule?

    Most softgels have soybean oil packaged in the capsule. That brand(which I started using recently) is the only one I could find that used olive oil and the price, for what is almost essentially a years supply(assuming you take just one a day), is great too.

    If you are truly on a Paleo Diet, then you avoid ANYTHING from the soybean. ESPECIALLY SOY OIL.

    Soy Oil = BAD Choice
    Olive oil = Health Choice

    This is what I take too.

    If you're REALLY forgetful about taking pills, or prefer to take pills less often, I was just made aware that this brand makes a 10,000 IU as well. So you could take that every other day instead.

    Apparently I have the bad kind here but can't really afford to throw them out. They're such tiny little capsules I can't imagine the amount of soybean oil in them would be harmful? Also, isn't pure olive oil also heavily refined?

    Don't stress it, increase dose by 50% and finish them. Then get the proper kind.
