Hi guys,

As the topic suggests, I'd like to find a good supplier of Vitamin D in the UK.
I previously ordered some "capsules" and they weren't an oil suspension as I expected.
So I'd like to know what any of my fellow UK people use?

Perhaps we can make this into a useful list for all geographical locations if people provide links for their suppliers?
If so, I can correlate them all into the first post and edit the title?

Thanks in advance

Anything wrong with the Boots High Stength? I've been taking them for the last year.

I bought from https://oxfordvitality.co.uk/products/vitamin-d3-tablets?variant=34728491221158

They seem to have good quality.

Thanks guys.
Reason I was asking was I remember Steve mentioning that Vit D3 is fat-soluble.
And I think Leo mentioned that the ones he takes are "little drops of gold", so the D3 is in an oil solution inside a capsule.
I just figured these might be easier for the body to absorb, though I probably have enough fat in my diet to compensate anyway. :D

Hi Airchie. I got mine via eBay from chia4uk who are 'up North' in Newcastle - I supplied my whole extended-family. You can't get anything over 1000IU from high street places like Boots in the UK without a prescription ( I wonder why that might be :-/ ) . Been taking them over a year now with 1000mg Vit C + Zinc effervescent from Boots / supermarket, to wash them down.

Anyway, recently, I've discovered (via Dr Been on GooTube) that one should make sure you are sufficient in Vit K when taking such doses of Vit D to prevent calcification - so have supplied everyone with tablets from Mobo - It seems you can get Vit D3 5000IU and Vit K2 MK-7 1000mcg combined tablets but haven't found any in soft-gels yet?


Best wishes from sunny Somerset! :)

I remember answering your same question some time ago, and suggested you tried iherb.com. Did you try, in this day of the internet there is no need to find a local supplier, you still have to pay shipping! (Now, High Potency Vit D-3 5000 IU 240 softgels)

This iherb.com site is giving me intermittent screen black-outs on Firefox - to the point when it is un-usable?
It seems to be another US-based multi-national company so....
I think I'll stick to the UK guys up country - and they don't charge any extra for P+P :-/

Works fine on chrome! I have found that local suppliers of the product are often more expensive, with free P&P , so when you add it all up there is not that difference!
