What supplements can be warmed up?

I figured this was the correct place to post, because I'm talking about my child. They recommend Vitamin D for infants and we supplment my son with Vitamin D drops, but we put it in his breast milk bottle we give him once a day. My question is that the person who feeds him heats up the bottle, so I'm wondering if the effectivness of vitamin D is the same after it's been heated? We've been putting vitamin D in the bottle in the morning and it might be hours later that he consumes it also and it's heated.

We also give him probiotics, which I've read before that heat kills off probiotics, which the probiotics we picked up for children were in the freezer section of the health food store. We end up putting it in our milk bottle and then it's heated up, so I'm guessing a lot of the benefits are being killed? But are all the probiotics being killed off?

My believe the milk bottle is put in a crock pot and until he consumes it, it's being heated. So the temperature isn't very high, but it's still being heated.

Your body is 98F degrees. Right? Some heat is quite tolerable by nutrients and probiotics. They live in such heat. Boiling would be bad. Isn't that what pasteurization is? Sterilization? Otherwise, there should be no problem with the temperatures that your tongue can tolerate or that of your baby.

I remember the days when my grandmother would cook her vegetables to death. Somehow, we survived.

Never really thought about that, but makes complete sense to me. Appreciate you clearing it up for me.
