Hey all just a quick question. I've been supplementing with 5,000iu's of liquid vitamin d-3 for the past couple weeks. I've been putting it in my coffee mixed with organic pasture raised (not raw) heavy whipping cream or grass-fed butter + mct oil. But my question is, if i'm pouring fresh, hot coffee in there, will the heat destroy the vitamin D-3 or alter its bio-availability? Should I just take it straight with nothing and make sure to have some fat with it or shortly after?
Also, would NOW Liquid Vitamin D-3 be any more efficient than taking NOW Foods Vitamin D-3 pills? Just because it is much cheaper overall; I can get like 3 months worth of Vitamin D if I purchase their pills rather than a couple weeks to a month from the liquid, for the same price.
Thanks for any input I really appreciate it.

Vitamin D is very heat stable:
I wouldn't worry about it.
Cholecalciferol is quite robust. They've tried adding it to biscuit dough before baking and the biscuits still raised 25(OH)D and they've added it to icecream and deep frozen it and that still works so I'm sure your coffee won't do it any harm. While I don't think biscuits are paleo this may be a useful strategy to ensure your non paleo elderly relatives stay Vitamin D replete.
