New Zealand – new 50,000 IU vitamin D capsule has soy which can cause allergic reactions – March 2016

NZ Pharmacy – login required

NZ changed the single vitamin D supplier in Feb 2016
NW apparently provides all prescribed drugs at a deep discount
Many children with peanut allergies are also allergic products containing soy
I am unaware of any other Vitamin D product which still uses soy.

On the positive side

50,000 IU capsule – a good size
They recommend 1 per day for 10 days if deficient = 500,000 IU – standard
NZ subsidizes the vitamin D capsule

On the negative side

Prescription probably required
Possibility of allergic reaction
No mention of forms of vitamin D for those with gut problems
No mention of smaller dose sizes for non-adults
No mention of more vitamin D needed for those who are obese, etc.

Suggestion: if you live New Zealand

Buy an over-the-counter Vitamin D capsule which does not require a prescription and which does not have soy (or any other additive which causes adverse reactions). Example Bio-Tech– Amazon, etc.
