    Got this comment via email:

    Interesting, I met a woman recently whose Vit D supplements weren’t doing anything since she was taking them on an empty stomach. Then she started taking them with fat-containing food and her levels normalized.

    Is beta carotene fat soluble like vitamin A? It occurs to me that when I drink carrot juice, it is usually by itself (without oil) and I wonder if I am not absorbing the vitamin that way.

    Thanks.

    Rick,

    beta-carotene is fat soluble and you would probably absorb more by adding some fat to your carrot juice.
