More and more people are taking a daily supplement of vitamin D. Most noteworthy it is a nutrient that has a huge impact on human health. According to American researchers, vitamin D oil absorbs better than if it's in powder or ethanol form. Furthermore the Bio-Vitamin D3 800IU
supplement from Pharma Nord uses oil for this exact reason.

Hence their research is published ahead of print in Molecular Nutrition & Food Research.
