You get your best Vitamin D from the sun. 30 to 45 minutes a day will give you a full days supply of Vitamin D if you have enough skin exposed to absorb it. All vitamin companies SCAM you. Most of the vitamins you need can be found in the food you eat IF you choose to eat properly.
It is true that Dr. Oz did recommend Marine D3 but it was to make you lead a better quality of life, whether you're 30 or 50. Marine D3 is known to have health benefits such as protecting the body cells, as a result assuring wellness.
"Dr." Oz and the rest of the television "doctors" often recommend products from companies that pay to be recommended. Always bear that in mind. I don't often watch Dr. Oz, but I do notice that a lot of his recommendations seem to to feature what I consider overpriced supplements and "gimmicky" diet notions. You're better off asking your own doctor.
Doctor Oz is overrated. He does have some valid points, but he also exaggerates things greatly and too many people ignore what he says about diet and exercise. Of course your doctor, doesn't have any more knowledge when it comes to nutrition either. Look at this study. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2430660/ I'm the manager at a GNC, and this is my passion. Everyone is different, and our bodies function individually. Some products work for some and not for others. You just have to try it and see. As for Marine-D3. We do not sell it at GNC, however, I have been taking it and I must say, I like it. I notice less stress, more energy, more fluidity, and generally better health and well-being. I didn't just hop on the supplement bandwagon just yesterday either. I've been taking a wholefood Multivitamin for years. I take Omega-3 Liquid fish oil from Nordic Naturals (Best fish oil out there and no fishy taste) and a daily regimen of quality potency tested 25 Billion CFU Probiotics. Yet I still must say after starting the Marine-D3 I feel much better from day to day (Granted, it could be placebo, but it doesn't seem logical nor likely).
