I am a controversy debunker. What concerns you about these controversies?

I looked it up. I'm not convinced of the premise (gum arabic as an emulsifier), given that bile does the job for the rest of us. Can't hurt to try. I can only assure you of one thing: your vitamin D status will not improve unless you do something to improve it.

There are certain disorders that do make vitamin D absorption problematic. There are injections available.

Hmmm. I'm a little bit skeptical. More likely her body doesn't efficiently convert D3 to its intermediate storage form, 25-hydroxycholecalciferol (also known as calcifediol). That could be caused by many things, including magnesium deficiency, or low zinc or vitamin A.

> Vitamin D as cholecalciferol. Heard of this stuff?

Supplemental vitamin D should always be taken as cholecalciferol, also known as D3.

My recommendation to you would be cod liver oil, taken with the fattiest meal of the day. You get some omega-3s, some vitamin A. Or some natural source D3 (which would be cod liver oil stripped of some or all of the vitamin A, which can be toxic in overdose). But hey, if this emulsified stuff does the trick.....
