12 Best Vitamin D Supplements of 2023, According to Experts

 




 

7.New Chapter Fermented Vitamin D3 Tablets

BEST VITAMIN D SUPPLEMENT FOR ABSORPTION

PROS

  • Fermented D3 and turmeric
  • Certified organic and gluten-free
  • Can be taken with or without food

CONS

  • Higher price than others on the list

Certified organic and gluten-free, these D3 tablets contain 2,000 IU of vitamin D3 that the brand claims is fermented to help promote absorption as well as turmeric. This pick is also vegetarian and free from synthetic fillers, artificial colors and flavors. According to New Chapter’s website, this supplement also meets strict requirements for heavy metals, pesticides and more.

One five-star online review writes on New Chapter’s site, “It doesn’t have a bad aftertaste and comes in a nice small pill.” Swallowing tablets isn’t always easy, so we appreciate the pill’s size and lack of flavor. We also like that you can take this tablet anytime with or without food, making it super easy to swallow before or after a meal if you are running out the door and forgot to take your daily dose with breakfast. That being said, it is more expensive than many other supplements on this list.

BEST VITAMIN D SUPPLEMENT FOR VEGANS

PROS

  • Naturally vegan source of vitamin D3
  • Rigorous testing protocols

CONS

  • Expensive per softgel
If you’re following a vegan diet, you may be more prone to a deficiency in vitamin D as certain vitamin D-rich foods aren’t part of your daily routine. Most vitamin D supplements also contain lanolin and/or gelatin, which come from animals, so finding a vegan sunshine supplement can be extra hard.
