I previously mentioned that I was considering taking a vitamin D supplement. After a lot of research, I finally got one. There are so many varieties of vitamins and so many brands. I think I settled on something good. I went for D3 because my research said that it was most like what our bodies produce, but I am not a doctor so don’t go buying something and ingesting it just because I do. Make sure you do your own research first.
Anyways, if you look really really close at the bottom of that picture, you will see the vitamin. It’s tiny! I was very surprised by the size of it. Little bitty vitamin…
I chose to go with the 1000 IU rather than something higher. The reason I chose that is because I already take a multivitamin that has some vitamin D in it. I didn’t want to overdo it. Know what I mean?
I also chose to go for a soft gel rather than a tablet. I read (and again, I am not a doctor) that the soft gel is better absorbed by the body. My multivitamin is a tablet so I figured I could test out this better absorption theory for myself.
I’m not sure how long I have to take this before I will start to reap the benefits, but I bought a twin pack that gives me 200 daily doses. I read that vitamin D3 can help fight disease, reduce depression, improve teeth and bone health, and a whole load of other stuff… We shall see!
