In case of emergency you probably want to get vitamin D into the bloodstream as quickly as possible.
Fat soluable vitamins decrease quickly after trauma
Without getting an injection, it appears that a vitamin D spray is the fastest way.
The following study indicates that spraying the vitamin D on the cheeks is faster than sublinqual.
Note: I have just ordered a 3,000 IU/spray bottle for use in emergencies. Henry Lahore Feb 2013
I plan on spraying vitamin D about 10 times (30,000 IU) inside the cheek in case of trauma, onset of flu, etc.
Study was made on pigs - which have similar mouth characteristics to humans.
It is far far easier to remove tongues, inner cheeks from dead pigs than from live humans
Looking at the number of data points one can guess that there were a lot of dead pigs
- 3,000 IU,
- 1,000 IU
- 400 IU sizes
- 200 IU Vitamin D3 per spray along with B1, B6, and Folic acid for pregnancy
They suggest 5 sprays per day @ 200 IU = 1,000 IU (but at least 6,000 IU appears to be needed
Amazon had 160 Vitamin D sprays as of May 2015
- 8 pounds ($12.80) per bottle which contains 100 sprays of 3,000 IU per spray
- which is approx 21 cents per 5,000 IU - which is OK
- Other forms of vitamin D (capsule, liquid, etc.) are much less expensive than sprays.
but other forms are not absorbed so quickly, and most need your gut to be working properly.
