Default Vit D3, gel-cap or tablet or what?

Sometime ago, somewhere here on the forum I read about which kind of vitamin D3 to take.

Avoid the gelcap (IF I remember correctly) but why?
Seems like gelcaps are everywhere but it's hard to find the tablets.

I can't find it in the search engine. Anybody know?

Alt Weight Loss Surgery Insurance
Yes, you can often get insurance cover for your Weight Loss Surgery.
Our own Craig "Big-T" Thompson has been there and done that, and he's written an e-book about it.

I get mine in caplets at Wal-Mart. Not familiar with gelcaps, though.

I posted awhile back to TAKE the gel caps and not the pills. I haven't seen any thread that discussed not using gel caps but I don't see them all. My reason to take gel caps is because the pill doesn't disolve in the digestive track (LOL don't ask how I know this, let's just say I personally saw proof that they can make it completely through the system). If it doesn't disolve, then it's not doing us much good.

I've since found chewable Vit Ds, orange flavored, that I really like. Gotta love Wally World.

Oh good. Hubby takes the gel caps and they are everywhere, even Sam's, and cheap, but the pills are increasingly hard to find. Thanks for the info.

I read on another forum that we don't absorb the oil forms in a gel cap. We need dry D3, or if you have a vitamin Shop go there and buy D3 in a bottle where you put drops under your tongue, I take between 5000 and 10,000 iu daily this way.
