I have been taking vitamin D3 (derived from lanolin) it never raised my levels which is down it just made me irritable ,I'm thinking absorption problems. So I switched vegan D3 (derived from mushrooms) with the same results, they are both fat soluble.

I switched again to vitamin D2 (water soluble) there is no irritability and an immediate lift in mood which is short lived, I don't know if it's doing any good until I get tested for D levels.

I know D3 is the better option but it doesn't seem to work for me my body rejects it, I have tried taking it topically,with magnesium, with largest meal, with fat, to no avail.

Any suggestions would be appreciated

I take Viridian D3 and it works well. I know if I don't have enough D3 when I get white spots on my lower arms

I've been taking D3 of various bases and never a problem but I also take K2 and was taking it every day with D3 but now taking it every other day. I've been taking D3 since 2006 after years in the SUN. Now I kinda avoid too much sun. j

The two times I've tried to take D3, different brands, it caused constipation. Both brands did not have K2 so I don't know if the two combined would not cause constipation.

Well, I have lived with a lifetime of sluggish bowels aka constipation and for the last 20 yrs or so take more magnesium citrate to keep nice and regular. D2 is the inferior form of Vit D and the one docs prescribe as it's a script for them. D3 is most helpful. So.....and drinking water all thru the day. And not cold water as cold stuff just freezes us up.
