If I take the recommended dose of Green Pasture FCLO each day, would it be redundant to also take a basic vitamin D supplement in pill form? Do any of you take both?
So many people talk about supplementing with vitamin D, to the extent that it seems rather crucial, so I'm wondering whether I'm covered with just the FCLO or whether I should be taking a D3 supplement in pill form as well?

Best to get your D3 blood level tested, so you aren't supplementing blindly. Good range is 50-60 ng/ml or 60-80 ng/ml if you have any inflammatory condition.

There is usually not enough D3 in FCLO (without taking a LOT) for most adults unless you are able to make the rest up via sun exposure. The A to D ratio in CLO is not evolutionarily sound, so I don't recommend it to clients unless they won't eat liver.
If you can't get enough sun, definitely take a D3 supplement in addition to the FCLO (or you could simply eat liver once a week and drop the FCLO altogether--much cheaper!)
I take Carlsons Solar D Gems. Cheap on iherb.com.
