Bariatric Advantage Liquid Vitamin D

Michelle at Vitalady sent me quite a bag of samples to go through with my last vitamin order — this was one of the things that came with my stuff:

Vitamin D3

Bariatric Advantage Liquid Vitamin D3 is designed to facilitate ease of dosing for those who need a high potency Vitamin D product.  Our liquid vitamin D is a unique sugar-free formula of vitamin D3 in a suspension of medium chain triglycerides (MCTs).  It is very pleasant tasting and offers the easy ability to dose either 10,000 IU (a full-dropper) or 5,000 IU of vitamin D.  This is a great solution for those who need to maintain their vitamin D levels and support bone health.

So I have to tell you, I didn’t know what to think.  I put off the tasting for a bit because I was a bit .. apprehensive.

I actually took this to a support group meeting we had.  I belong to a group that has two meeting groups — one that meets in Raleigh, NC every month and one that meets in Greenville, NC every other month.

So I had little tester cups and we did “D shooters” as one person put it.

It has NO taste.  None.  Zero.  Nada.

Texture — yes.  Taste, no.  It’s a very thin oily texture — enough that if I had to do this on a regular basis, I’d have to put it in a protein drink to dissipate it to get it down.  But it wouldn’t change the flavor of the drink at all.

Dropper

As you can see, the dropper is marked in 0.5ml and 1.0ml.  If you do 1/2 of a dropper, you get 5,000 IU.  1.0ml, (duh) of course gives you 10,000 IU of D3.  Remember that RNYers need quite a bit of this every day just to maintain our numbers — and that normies are going to get their toxic numbers raised to 10,000 IU.  Taking 20,000 IU a day is not out the realm of possibility just to maintain if you have decent malabsorption going on.

In any case, this has NO flavor, is an easy way of getting your D without adding YET ANOTHER PILL.  If you’re still doing protein shakes daily, toss a mil or two in to get your D supplement and be done with it.  It’s a bit pricier than pills, of course — you knew it would be for all the reasons you can think of.  But it’s an option.
