I'm taking a water based solution of chlecalciferol. Its supposed to be for babies since they do not produce bile or something so is written in the annotation to the medicine. I wonder if i as an adult benefit from taking it, does it actually gets digested and absorbed in my system.

    I do know that for D3 to absorb best, any form of Vitamin D3 should be taken with a small amount of fats. A snack or meal containing fat. So as long as it is legitimately cholecalciferol, anyone should be able to take it. We do though, recommend adults take 5000iu a day to be and stay healthy.

    Bio-Tech and several others make a vitamin D which dissolves in water – no fat needed. this is the form which I have been taking for 5 years now – never with any fat, and My vitamin D levels have been > 100 nanograms. And yes, it appears to be good for those with gut problems, fat digestion problems, and those who have had their gallbladders removed. Here is a page with links to 50 studies/reports on different forms of vitamin D.http://vitamindwiki.com/tiki-index.php?page_id=5157
