Finding a suitable Vitamin D3 is tricky. The closest I have come to getting something that doesn't contain nasty preservatives is the one below (Australian, of course). The vegetable capsules .. it doesn't state what they are made of .. presumably salicylate based vegies. .. a better compromise that sulphur dioxide (in gelatin) or sodium benzoate as a preservative in other brands I have looked at. Asthma, stomach upsets, depression/behaviour disorders .. some of the delightful side effects for responders according to the Failsafe website (Sue Dengate)... and from my own experience I really don't want to go there. Even small quantities can have an effect.
