It is said to take vitamin D with fat. Does fish oil count?

If the Vitamin D is not "emulsified", you have to take a "Medium Chain", fatty acid with it. It's my understanding (I could be wrong) that fish oil is Long chain, not Medium chain.

If you are not using an emulsified, vitamin D, I would consider using coconut oil with MCT (medium-chain triglycerides) instead.

Taking it with a meal would be sufficient.

Thanks guys!

I only ask because I read it needs to be taken with fat. I take mine in the morning after my cereal, which has no "fat" in it so I was hoping I was covered by taking my fish oil at the same time. Guess not!

I've been doing it this way for years. 😔

COQ10 should be taken with fat also.

Good point Janis!

Hey everyone,

just was ordering the new metagenics liquid D3 for a customer and see that it has the Medium chain triglycerides in it so no need to worry about getting it another way. I am excited about that and had been taking their capsule form so switching over to this one.

Metagenics is an excellent company. Another good D product would be Bio-D-Mulsion Forte from Biotics Research.

For COQ10, I advise my customers to take the Ubiquinol form as that is the active form the body can use. Pretty much any brand will do as the raw material is made by one company in Japan.
