In brief: Alternative

Vitamin d3 can be taken by mouth.
The need is decided by a blood test. Omega 3 and omega 6 fatty acids are essential to life and the top of the cascade that leads to omega 3 formation is Alpha linolenic acid, the top of the omega 6 cascade is linoleic acid. Both of these essential oils are present in canola oil. Fish oil supplies eicosapentoic acid (epa) a metabolite of linolenic acid.
