Oi!~ Well I would assume if people are already overweight It would kind of be excessive to take the vitamin D in gel form with fat in it, if they are already taking fish oil and some other various types of fat containing vitamins(such as Phosphatidyl choline with vitamin E)at the same time. Or maybe it's just me and I eat too much at times. Which causes me to have a back up and feel like i need to puke or can't swallow.

And again can i ask for recommendations of Brands? Thorne Research came out with a brand with 25,000 IU of one. Source naturals is listed up there on iherb.com as well as Now. Maybe ill just go with the now brand again.

My D3 capsule 5,000 IU is teeny tiny... probably 2 or 3 drops of oil total. Most D3 caps are very small. (probably not the really high dose ones, but you don't need those anyway).

I'd also appreciate it if he kept it to simpler stuff. I'm not sure if I totally agree with the fact that he makes thing too simple. I'm glad he tells people about supplements, but sometimes he lists too much supplements. So that when we look into it or go after the supplements. Sometimes they either don't work. Or maybe they haven't been throughly investigated by the FDA.

A couple or 3 years ago Quest Diagnostics made a public apology for doing Vit D testing wrong. They did this for about a year...all tests invalid.

I thought that was the end of it.

But no... here is a new link about a similar problem:

Lightbulb Improved cognitive functions in older women on Vit D:

This is interesting:

http://psychcentral.com/news/2012/12...nce/48462.html

Quote:
New research shows that vitamin D may be a vital component for the cognitive health of women as they age.

Higher vitamin D dietary intake is associated with a lower risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease, according to research conducted by a team led by Cedric Annweiler, M.D., Ph.D., at the Angers University Hospital in France.....Very low levels of vitamin D — less than 10 nanograms per milliliter of blood serum — were associated with higher odds of cognitive impairment at baseline.

Low vitamin D levels — less than 20 nanograms per milliliter — among cognitively-impaired women were associated with a higher risk of cognitive decline, as measured by performance on the Mini-Mental State Examination, according to the researchers.

Lightbulb Low D a risk factor for premenopausal breast cancer:

This is a new study showing women who get breast cancer
before the menopause, have very low D levels.

http://news.yahoo.com/vitamin-d-leve...162400428.html
Quote:
The University of California, San Diego School of Medicine published the results of a recent study that shows a link between low vitamin D serum levels and premenopausal breast cancer. Women with low vitamin D serum levels are at a greatly increased risk for breast cancer......A total of 1,200 blood samples were examined for this study. 600 of the samples were from women who developed breast cancer and 600 were from women who stayed cancer-free. After examining the samples, researchers concluded that premenopausal women with low vitamin D serum levels three months before diagnosis had three times the risk of getting breast cancer than those with the highest blood serum levels...It appears that Sharif B. Mohr, Ph. D et al, are onto something.
Yahoo links eventually disconnect...so I quoted some of the article with the researcher's name so anyone can Google to find it again somewhere else.
