Greetings:

 

Do you consider Vitamin D3 (Cholecalciferol) to be derived from Animal Origin/Sources?

 

Tried to explain: Vitamin D3 is prepared synthetically from a ruminant source material: from wool grease (lanolin) from sheep in Australia and New Zealand.

 

 

Looking for further direction.

 

 

 

Thank you for your time and kindness.

I have been looking for a vegan source of vitamin D3, but to my knowledge it does not exist. I will update this thread though if I find anything.

Also looking for a vitamin A source that is not animal or synthetically derived. That one is a long shot, but if anyone knows of anything, please let me know!
