The ‘sunshine’ vitamin
Vitamin D is needed for the body to absorb calcium and phosphorous, and so plays a vital role in the growth and maintenance of strong bones. It has also been shown to support the immune system and maintain muscle function. Natural food sources of vitamin D are rare, so the sun is our main source of this essential vitamin. UVB rays trigger the synthesis of vitamin D in the skin, which is then absorbed into the blood stream and transported around the body.
Linked to dementia risk
Findings from large-scale studies show a potential link between low levels of vitamin D and an increased risk of dementia in later life.

|Q:||I have a condition first diagnosed two years ago which is now termed as hyperparathyroidism secondary to vitamin D deficiency. The vitamin D I have taken has put my system back on track but my consultant wants me to up the dosage from 800iu to 2000iu because of continuing low levels of Vit D. Do you only do the 400iu dosage or is there a stronger one available please to save me having to take 5 tablets a day?|
We also provide super strength Vitamin D3 tablets 2000iu that may be more suitable for your needs.
|Q:||At the moment i am taking Calceous Chewable tablets, can you advise if you sell Calcium and Vitamin D3 supplements.
Yes, we supply Calcium and Vitamin D3 tablets in a 500mg/200iu strength.
|Q:||Do you plan on selling vitamin D3?|
Studies show that vitamin D2 is just as effective as D3 when taken as lower strengths such as 400iu. Only when taken at super strengths between 1000iu and 2000iu, is vitamin D3 better absorbed by the body.
Following these guidelines, we offer a Vitamin D2 400iu, and a separate Super Strength Vitamin D3 2000iu supplement.
