Not suitable for vegan

Purchased at iHerb

After researched on the Internet about vitamin D 3 as Cholecalciferol, I found that it is extracted from lanolin found in sheep's wool. Paraphrasing a more detailed cholesterol is extracted from wool grease and wool wax alcohols obtained from the cleaning of wool after shearing. The cholesterol undergoes a four step process to make 7-dehydrocholesterol, the same compound that is stored in the skin of animals. The 7-dehydrocholesterol is then irradiated with ultra violet light. Some unwanted isomers are formed during irradiation. These are removed by various techniques, leaving a resin which melts at about room temperature and usually has a potency of 25,000,000 to 30,000,000 International Units per gram.
