Default Vitamin D source?

Is there such thing as a skin lotion with Vitamin D?

Even if there was one, there's (fortunately) very little absorption of chemicals into the skin.

Vitamin D in pill form is cheap as sexual intercourse and has good bioavailability iirc.

Try to mix a little cod liver oil with Nivea creme, but just a little to avoid stinking fish from your skin

There was a prescription topical application of vitamin D that was being used for Psoriasis, if I recall. Dr Holick mentioned it in both a keynote address I attended, and in a lecture that he used to have posted on his website (which has been re-vamped, causing me to lose the link to the lecture). I would add that while he does mention the topical application, it's pretty much just for that one skin issue, and we are much better served to take it orally, if we can't get it via the sun.

How much VD do you need to supplement and is there a reason for wanting a lotion?

I'm taking a 1000u VD tablet daily plus trying to get at least 30 minutes sun exposure on my arms and legs. Most bone supplements (that contain calcium, magnesium, zinc etc) also contain 1000u VD and are pretty cheap.

Yeah, there is really no reason to go for a lotion over a pill, unless you have some very special circumstance.

I suppose you could consider sun-tan lotion a means to a vitamin D end. You can get your VD RDI by spending a bit of time in the sun.

People used to sunbath covering themselves in veg oil for similar effects.

There is that pesky possible cancer side effect though...

It takes 15-30 minutes of direct sun exposure to get maximum Vitamin D synthesis. that's not causing cancer in anybody but maybe a ginger
Google 'u-shaped dose response curve'

too little = bad
too much = bad

just right = just right
