You have probably noticed that vitamin D has been getting a lot of press lately in the media and health journals. It is well-known and established that vitamin D is necessary for supporting strong bones and teeth. It is also established that vitamin D is necessary for good absorption of certain minerals.
Our best source of vitamin D has always been sunshine; however, the use of sunscreen can limit the amount of vitamin D actually absorbed from the sun. Cloudy, rainy climates also add limitations. Cod liver oil can also be a good source, though you have to read the label to be sure. All cod liver oils are not the same.
Individuals who do not get sufficient sun exposure and do not take cod liver oil have to resort to fortified foods for their vitamin D intake. Cereals and dairy products are fortified adequately, but individuals on a GF/CF diet will miss out on much of that fortification. Check your food labels to determine whether they contain vitamin D.
In 2008, the American Academy of Pediatrics doubled the recommended dose of Vitamin D for infants, adolescents and adults to 400 IU daily. Recent research is now suggesting that many children and adults are still not getting enough vitamin D for maintaining good health. This research is suggesting that many other health conditions in addition to healthy bones and teeth may be very vitamin D dependent. Kirkman recommends looking up this recent research on the Internet so you can determine if you and your family may need to supplement with additional vitamin D.

Huge thank you to Reviewer-1-9-9-0-2-2-6 from Michigan for noting that this vit D caused no issues re their sensitivities - while it's derived from lanolin, I decided to try it based on that review. I've tried different brands of vit D derived from both fish liver oil and lanolin, yet haven't been able to find a vit D that didn't give me awful headaches - except the sun - until now. Every other form of vit D I've tried resulted in the same awful headaches, though I desperately needed vit D and as we all know, getting enough sunshine may be problematic. So I was pleasantly surprised to find this one didn't cause headaches - at all. Which annoys me - what is it about those other brands? The impurities? The fillers? Why can't they stop using them?! I know from trial/error that most cap/tab fillers cause me to wheeze, so buy pure powders where available. However, that's not always an option. So as per Reviewer-1-9-9-0-2-2-6 - thank gosh for this vit D and I hope they never stop making it/selling it here. If this review was helpful to you, please click YES below - thank you.

I hope they never stop making this product! For years I tried to find a vtamin D supplement that I could tolerate. I tried every brand and every type and formula but could not tolerate them due to my sensitivities. The Kirkman Labs formula has been a lifesaver! I have no problems taking this product at all. I was very vitamin D deficient. I don't know what I would do without this product! And I'm so glad iHerb now carries it.
