When you use a vitamin supplement you should always look for a whole food source instead of synthetic.  In fact I would never ever recommend taking a synthetic vitamin.  Vitamin D has become very popular recently and a bunch of new research has come out.  One most interesting is this and how Vitamin D increases muscle and strength.  However the one big problem with Vitamin D supplements is that most are from synthetic sources.  I have looked and looked high and wide in the relm of the supplement industry and have NOT found any supplement companies selling NATURAL vitamin D.  Therefore I do not recommend any vitamin D supplements at this time.

However on a side note I did find one manufacturing company that is making a mushroom powder that is naturally rich in vitamin D.   Here are some highlights.  Once I find somewhere or someone that uses this stuff I will post it here.  But for now avoid all vitamin D supplements on the market.

• Non-GMO, whole food mushroom powder

• 40,000 IU of Vitamin D per gram – independently verified

• 100% DV (400 IU) from just 10 milligrams

• Organic grades available

• Low use levels offer excellent economics

• Won’t affect organoleptics

• Consumer-friendly,clean label ingredient

• Made in the USA


Remember I’m a supplement expert with over 15 years experience in buying and manufacturing supplements.  Anyone can recommend a supplement but isnt the next question always, “What BRAND is the best?”.  Well that is the problem.  You have sites like examine.com that tell you about the ingredients but stop there.  That is pretty much worthless because you have no clue what to BRAND to BUY after that.  So you’re left with searching forums and asking self-proclaimed experts or looking at reviews that most of the time are biased.  The real answer is to ask an expert like myself.  Asking questions on a forums only gets you amateur consumer responses which is quite frankly a ridiculous way to take a recommendation with something you’re putting into your body. But you’re in luck because I am a REAL supplement expert.  I have over 10 years dealing with FDA lawyers, manufacturing consultants, employing dietary supplement experts, knowledge of the Code of Federal Regulations 111’s for dietary supplements, and much more!  I am a qualified supplement expert manufacturer, not just a science guy.  I am the real deal when it comes to recommending quality supplements because I take it a step further and recommend a brand and give you the reason(s) why!
