"This is a good product. The pill dissolves quickly and tastes good. The company is good, too. I've ordered a lot of things from them over the years. They always provide fast, consistent shipping. Overall, very pleased."
"How delightful to find this product. Not only do you get 1000 mg of vitamin D3, but also K2 (MK7 the best form of K2) which is so necessary but rarely included with D3. And then, on top of all that, the tablets are very very tiny and melt in your mouth with a wonderful burst of flavor."
"I was looking for a high-potency Vitamin D. I found this one and am happy. The only reason for just four stars is because it comes in regular size capsule, not those wonderful tiny little clear-yellow capsules. But when you want 10,000 IU's instead of 5,000 or less, then that's what you get!"
"After reading the Perfect Health Diet book, my husband and I started supplementing vitamins K2 and D. We bought this dissolvable supplement for our younger child. He loves it! Although, if you are a person who travels often and takes supplements on the road, I noticed that when I put these dissolvable pills into a pill case on vacation for 5 days, the last two days were basically a powder. My son still ate the powder :) but I just want to give you fair warning - it's a tiny bottle, just take the whole thing with you! Overall, I am very pleased with this product and I will continue to purchase it through Vitacost!"
"Our son broke his arm and we started him on this product. As we learned more about the benefits of these two vitamins we have continued to purchase and use this daily. Excellent de-solving tablets for those who have trouble with swallowing pills."
"This is a convenient way of assuring that you are getting BOTH vitamins D3 and K2, thus supporting needed calcium for bone health, while avoiding calcification of soft tissues, such as blood vessels; the latter would be a problem without the K2. That is, one should NOT supplement with calcium and D3 unless one also supplements with K2. This little sublingual 'dot' is just what is needed.
The other reviewer who complained about the other ingredients can't be serious or has no appreciation for the quantities of these involved. You need have no concerns."
