Questionable ingredients in supplements

Recommended Posts

I've been prescribed high strength vitamin D supplements as I have a very low vitamin D count.

The only tablet options I can find on prescription include some questionable ingredients, but I think I'll have to go with the least nasty of what's availabe, as I really need the vitamin D and over the counter lower strength capsules haven't done much to raise my levels.

Which would you says is the better out of these ingredient lists (I've only listed the questionable stuff)?

1) Corn oil, sunflower seed oil and vegetarian capsule shell.

2) Microcrystalline cellulose, acacia gum, sucrose, starch, medium chain triglycerides, magnesium stearate

3) Maize oil, refined, butylated hydroxytoluene, gelatin, glycerol, chlorophyllin copper complex sodium

I just looked up Microcrystalline Cellulose and it sounds pretty nasty! I'm thinking about going back to the doctor and finding out if some of the over the counter options are ok, as I've found a few more options there.
