Which D3 supplement do you take?

After watching the Michael Johnson video on YT I realised that the Holland & Barrett D3 supps I was taking contain magnesium stearate which they say is 'immune compromising'. In fact since I started looking into all this I've binned ALL my H&B supps, what a load of rubbish! I mostly use Lamberts and Nature's Best now.

I'm considering this one It's the one recommended in the video.

We use Healthy Origins D3 gel capsules in our household. In case you haven't seen it, Chris Kresser has recently published an article on magnesium stearate.

Hi If seeing an Endo or if not a GP , they should prescribe the D. This is quite important as you need a test for corrected calcium, which must not go over range, or be to low. This is before any treatment, then 3 months later, when the D is well in your blood, repeats of both, then ideally 6 monthly, although GP may say a year.D is quite complicated, why other consultants are only allowed to diagnose, not treat, hormonal too, effects thyroid, as I am sure you know.

Best wishes,
