spouse is overweight, and not paleo. i would like him to try some vit d, but he will only take it if it is not a gelcap. Is it ok to take a powder type pill, along with a smidgen of any kind of fat/oil?

You could make a smoothie & add the drops.

You could use a vitamin D spray too, though he probably will like that even less.

Does it matter how you take vitamin D?
Posted on November 8, 2011 by Dr John Cannell
I get many letters about vitamin D absorption. ???Should I take it with food???? ???It is a fat soluble vitamin, so shouldn???t I take it with fat???? ???Should I take it with a meal???? ???Is it absorbed if I take it on an empty stomach????

I use Biotics Bio-D-Mulsion Forte.

1 tiny drop has 2000 I.U.s.

The ingredients other than the D are water, gum arabic, and sesame oil.

I believe gelcaps or drops (containing oil) are preferable, but feel free to take tabs and see what response you get on blood tests...
