Will it work by rubbing D3 (Lanolin as Cholecalciferol + extra ingredients: olive oil) into the skin to let it absorb? I'm asking this because vitamin D is supposed to be on the skin, so surely it's better?
It’s not necessarily better to “rub it in” but if you want to try you can. “Dr Cannel once said the following.” “If you are one of those people whose vitamin D levels will not go above 40 ng/ml, even on 10,000 units per day, and you won’t use sunlight or sunbeds, just keep increasing the dose up to 20,000 IU per day. If that does not work, buy some coconut oil on the internet and add the contents of two 5,000 IU capsules of vitamin D to a tablespoon of coconut oil.” “Mix it well and then rub it into your skin every day, and see if that raises your vitamin D level.”
You will notice that he did not use lanolin as a substitute. I do not know why. It may not have any or very much vitamin d in it to begin with.
About four years ago, my Vitamin D level was measured at zero. My doctor said she had never seen a zero before. I tried taking supplements orally, as capsules, and they caused intestinal problems. I purchased some vitamin D as an oil, and it caused intestinal problems.
So, I researched this, and found that when milk was first supplemented with Vitamin D, it was by irradiating the milk with UVB light. And evidently many food items develop Vitamin D when they are exposed to UVB light.
Still being a bit cautious about ingesting anything, I irradiated olive oil, using a UVB reptile light, letting it sit overnight. I then rubbed the olive oil onto my legs. Since I have no idea about what dosage I was getting, I only did that once every week. Went back to doctor, and the numbers were just below low normal. Now I rub some oil into my legs every day, just before putting my socks on. I irradiate new oil about once-a-week, and pour it into a bottle. The excess oil on my hands is rubbed onto my face.
The big plus of this method is that I don’t have to worry about “getting enough sun”. And a weird side-effect was that my bad cholesterol has dropped down into normal range.
