Vitamin D in oil has better absorption




Supplements with vitamin D in oil are absorbed more easily by the body than those in powder or ethanol form, according to American researchers. The D-Pearls vitamin D supplement from Pharma Nord uses oil for this exact reason.

More and more people are taking a daily supplement of vitamin D, a nutrient that is touted for its huge impact on human health. They may be doing themselves a favor by choosing a supplement with vitamin D in oil, as this appears to increase the absorption of the vitamin.

Better absorption in oil
According to American scientists who have reviewed four clinical studies of different vitamin D formulations, supplements that use oil as a transport vehicle have better bio-availability than products that use powder or ethanol. Their research is published ahead of print in Molecular Nutrition & Food Research.
