@saraq90 - My doctor suggested I take vitamin D supplements as well and I found one very important piece to taking the vitamin D -
You still have to go outside! Going outside promotes your body and the all so important vitamin D. I had my vitamin D tested and it was still low after taking the supplement for months. That's when I received the going outside for vitamin D tip.
I see many calcium & vitamin d combinations, and now I get why from the article - it helps promote calcium absorption. I, like you, have the take the chewables of calcium; but I have also heard calcium gluconate liquid might be the way to go.
But I can honestly say, I don't remember where I heard that - if it was an advertisement or a health article somewhere. So I would do some more research before diving in, because it can be a bit more expensive than the calcium and vitamin D combo chewable supplements.
