Simple product, can be effective if used properly

I received this item in a sale, and it's o.k., but you have to be smart and use it properly. Vitamin D is very important, but it should be combined with Vitamin K2, Vitamin A, Calcium and Magnesium in order to adsorb properly. To decrease the number of pills/tablets, a more complex D+K2 product is recommended (though those aren't common yet, since the crucial importance of K2 became widely known in this decade only).
Very Affordable Vitamin D3 If You Do Not Need A Stronger Formula

I give the product four stars because it does not state that the olive oil would be coldpressed as I would like to see. 1,000 IU = 25 µg vitamin D3, the best form of vitamin D. You should meaure your vitamin D level sometimes to see that you are getting enough this very important sun vitamin. I have measured my blood serum 25-Hydroxyvitamin D, 25(OH)D three times and last time my test result was 141 nmol/L = 56.4 ng/ml. My test result was now at optimum level which is 125 - 150 nmol/L = 50 - 60 ng/ml when you are taking enough Vitamin D. I will continue with the same dosage that is 2,000- 5,000 IU daily to keep my vitamin D level right. There is no need to worry about overdosing because the tendency for serum 25(OH)D to rise when the starting level already is higher is very gradual. I hope you find this review helpful.

Fantastic price--about 1/2 the price of what I can find locally!

I live in a very overcast area, and don't spend tons of time outside, so I don't get much vitamin D from sunlight. These little softgels really seem to help to keep my blood levels of D in a more normal range. Without supplementation my levels dip dangerously low. I like the dosage as well...I can take a few a day if need be, and when I take just one I don't need to worry that I'm taking a high potency that may not be good for my daily use. :)
New for me

Started taking Vitamin D recently. Feeling good as of late but that may be due to changed diet, weight loss and increased exercise. In anyway, vitamin D can't hurt
Nice price and a good product

Hopefully it is also good quality. No way to tell.
Bought this because I heard that Vit D3 can help with eczema

I bought this because I read that Vit D3 is good for people with eczema. Not in a sense that it will cure it, but it will just alleviate the symptoms. I've been eating 1 tablet everyday and it does seem that my flare up is a bit better because of this. I do stilll get itchy from time to time, but it seems a bit better now.
