Studies have shown that vitmain D is essential to health and may inhibit disease. Vitamin D deficiency is very common in many people, and even more so in those that live in cooler climates with longer winters.
Most of us do not get enough vitamin D from our diets, as it is naturally found in fatty fish, cod liver oil, egg yolks, and beef liver. The small amount of synthetic vitamin D2 that is often added to dairy products in an inferior form of this important nutrient.
Do you need Vitamin D?
Vitamin D3 5000 IU provides 5000 IU of cholecalciferol, a form of vitamin D3 that is more biologically active in the body than vitamin D2. The cholecalciferol derived from cholesterol found in sheep's wool, making it suitable for vegetarians.

Dr. Ben Lynch, founder and Chief Medical Officer of Seeking Health, is a naturopathic physician. While majoring in Cell and Molecular biology at the University of Washington, Dr. Ben took a trip through the South Pacific and Southeast Asia that changed his outlook on traditional medicine, and his life.
During this trip, Dr. Ben hiked through the forests, mountains and coasts of Tasmania, worked a cattle ranch in the Outback of Australia, and volunteered with Mother Theresa in Calcutta. He lived in Fiji with a family having no electricity or plumbing, experienced the Himalayan Mountains of Northern India, worked a fruit orchard in New Zealand, and returned to America with an impression of a different form of medicine than he had ever experienced with his mainstream medical education.
This profound experience led Dr. Ben to Bastyr University, and he studied the Mind-Body Connection, Environmental Medicine, Functional Medicine, and Epigenetics.
Dr. Ben saw the huge need for people to obtain foundational nutrients, and Seeking Health was born. Without foundational nutrients, biochemical dysfunction occurs and causes symptoms. Doctor after doctor and person after person do not understand the absolute requirement for our bodies to have the tools to maintain function.
“If one supports their bodily systems, especially their digestion and mental health, with pure, highly absorbable, well-formulated nutrients, the ability to remain healthy and vital significantly increases. We want your foundation rock solid and we provide the tools to do so.”
-Dr. Ben Lynch, founder of Seeking Health

1) Taking Vitamin D2 is not very effective as it is not the active form of vitamin D - vitamin D3 is. Please ask your doctor why she wants you taking vitamin D2. I think you'll get better results from D3.
2) Liquid vitamin D3 is excellent for those who do not like swallowing capsules or need higher amounts as each drop contains 2,000 IU of vitamin D3. This makes it easy to obtain high levels of D3 quickly and without having to swallow so many capsules. The liquid is also great for people who have sensitive stomachs or do not digest fats very well. The liquid vitamin D3 is great for kids, pregnant women, high dosing and seniors - and -as stated earlier - those who dislike capsules or pills.
3) The Vitamin D3 5,000 IU vegetarian capsule is great for those who just need to maintain their vitamin D3 levels and can easily pop these small capsules in their mouth and swallow.
Both are very pure and without magnesium stearate, preservatives or fillers. It is merely a personal choice.
I personally use the D3 drops for myself and my family. I find them to be easier to use and my kids definitely prefer the liquid vitamin D3.
Great question ;)
In health,Dr Ben
