Hi, i have been and got this today from my local health shop only one tub left on the shelf! apparently a local doc has been sending his patients round to them to get this
It's pretty easy to order online and maybe cheaper as well. I live in Taiwan and vitamin D is ridiculously expensive here for some strange reason (ironically, prescript
ion drugs are much cheaper, go figure), which is why I order it from abroad. I've bought vitamin D3 twice online from two different companies:
I don't doubt that there are others just as good, but these are the two I've ordered from and they've been reliable. Although I don't live in the USA (where these two companies are located), they've been able to ship internationally at reasonable cost. I definitely got faster delivery from iherb (one week, via DHL) than from Puritan (three weeks, they use Deutsche Post).
I'm not taking D3 for my Crohn's, but rather for flu protection. From what I've read, the whole reason why flu is so much more severe in winter is because we don't get enough sunlight on our skin seeing how we're all bundled up against the cold. Researchers are finding that D3 is more important than they have previously thought. Women entering menopause (that's not me) especially need a lot of D3 to prevent osteoporosis. Hard to say what the correct dosage should be, but right now I'm taking 5000 IU of D3 per day.
Crohn's since 1988
