Why is that we should take it during the AM?
No, WF doesn't sell it.
Regarding taking D in the AM, I'm actually not sure of the scientific type reasoning (maybe someone will chime in) except that there have been many anecdotal reports of people having difficulty sleeping when taking it at night. Some suggest taking it with the largest meal, but if that is usually dinner, and sleep is a problem, taking it in the AM may be best. I've never taken it at night so I don't have that comparison, but you could try both and see how it goes. The main thing is to take it with some fat and I do know that vitamin K also helps it to be absorbed properly.
I definitely think the quality of supplements could be a factor. Many supplements have fillers that could be a potential problem. Also, I would look for brands known for good quality control standards. I'd rather pay a few extra bucks, if needed, for what I'm putting into my system. The D I mentioned to you is actually inexpensive and an excellent product.
