Reply To: 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?
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.
