Thank goodness! I was looking for a Vitamin D3 supplement that was vegan and was already getting depressed at the thought of having to buy a non-vegan source just so that I can thrive. Anyone else know of any other vegan sources?

Apparently both other products that claimed to be vegan actually sucked. One was not vegan and the other was really questionable. See Jackfruitfighter's links. The vitashine one is, to my knowledge, acceptable! :)

This is awesome.  Vitamin D has been my missing link so far - I definitely haven't made getting sun a priority because of a crazy work schedule.  I'm definitely going to look into this and hopefully order.  Thanks so much for the heads up.  This really made my day :)

Hi Hylas,

 

Haven't tried myself, but the Source of Life Garden D3 may be legit. Gary Francione (AR philosopher/law professor of abolitionistapproach.com) said on his forum he called the company and had them explain every step of the production process to him and he's convinced it's vegan. He's always giving PETA, MFA, HSUS etc. a hard time for not being vegan enough, so I would think he'd only say it's vegan if he was absolutely convinced.

 

The thing I don't like about it is they put all these other ingredients in it including chlorella and spirulina. Hopefully if it is for real, demand will increase and more companies will make their own products without the silly additives.

Just looking for clarification here B. I know the "Vitashine" product is legit vegan, however the "Source of Life Garden" one (at least 1.5 years ago) had been confirmed to be using Lanolin. Has this maybe been changed since then?

Hi JFF, the link you posted confirmed GOL D3 to be lanolin derived but not SOLG, clarified in the following comment from the page below:

 

This vegan.fm page is confusing. It shows something from Jack Norris about “Garden of Life” D3 supplements, but this is listed under the “Source of Life Garden” D3 supplements. Please note that these are two separate products from two separate companies. In other words, this vegan.fm page is criticizing the wrong product, which is not the product pictured on the page.

Correct product:
http://www.naturesplus.com/products/whatsnewShell.asp?criteria=sear...

Wrong product:
http://www.gardenoflife.com/ProductsforLife/THEVITAMINCODEsupsup/Ta...

I don’t actually know anything about the correct product, other than Trish saying GLF contacted Source of Life Garden and is satisfied that the product is vegan. I’m just correcting the confusion between the two products.

Cheers,
Tim

 

So we don't know yet about SOLG, nor have I tried it myself, but it apparently is possible to synthesize plant derived D3 and there may be more than one way to do it. I'm not interested in the product based on the other ingredients but for now I would give it the benefit of the doubt for being the real deal.

 

btw I just finished a bottle of the vitashine D3 and I liked it so I've ordered 3 more. It's more expensive ordering it from north america, but it seems to be a good product (nice coconuty flavor, digests fine, ingredients are pretty good, subjectively seems more potent than D2), so I hope to get my vit D tested soon to confirm that it is effective.

Just a quick question.  What is the significance of vitamin D3, as opposed to other regular vitamin 'd' supplements?

D2 (the vegan source that was available prior to this supplement), has to be converted to to d3 to be used as 25 hydroxyvitamin D. D3 is just further along the chain. Some people are desperate to believe that we cannot convert precursor nutrients like d2 very well. We can, but obviously if you can get hold of a d3 supplement that is vegan, you may as well take it.

 

Take care
