I am a huge fan of Dr. Weil's vitamins. Earlier this year my Dr. determined that I needed to increase my intake of Vitamin D. Reading all that the medical establishment is attributing to low levels of Vitamin D in ones system, I decided that this was medical advice that I would follow. I needed to supplement my diet with 2000 IU per day. The first supplement I took was 400 IU per day. While I do not have problems swallowing pills, I soon grew wary of taking 5 additional pills, plus other vitamins and supplements. Dr. Weil to the rescue! These Vitamin D pills are tiny, think child sized aspirin, coated (very smooth) and have a pleasant taste if one is running from the medicine cabinet to the sink with the pills in their mouth because their water cup is empty. Although I ultimately had to take a revise my supplement selection, and take my Vitamin D in a mega dose once a week, when I can go back to over the counter dosage, I will gladly resume taking these pills.
