    Tablets suggests you have D2 (plant based) - you need to supplement with D3 (animal based). Humans don't convert D2 to D3 well. And do ensure it's a gelcap (oil based).

    Or you can just eat your D3 vitamin tablet (if it's not oil based) together with some fatty food like cheese.

    Is it ok if it's plant based D3?

    Turns out, that in the wild, they get all of both from drinking water that standing on the earth (mud puddles) and also from eating the dirt clinging to plant roots they are eating. So, when I see all those wild critters around the world who seem to be doing just fine with the minerals they need to survive, I worry a little bit less.
    Interesting! This might explain why our neighbor's cat specifically comes to our garden once or twice a day to drink from our muddy pond, even though it has a water bowl at home. When I had my own cat I also observed that he would prefer to drink from muddy puddles outside than from his water bowl indoors, I thought he just didn't like the chlorine taste of tap water, but perhaps he also wanted some minerals!

    I don't worry about calcium intake either despite not eating much dairy. I figure I get enough from almonds, salmon and green veggies.
