This is now our top selling Vitamin D and we recommend it for anyone who gets little or no exposure to sunshine. These small, easy to swallow capsules provide Vitamin D in the preferred form of ‘D3’ dissolved in sunflower seed oil to aid absorption.
Our bodies obtain Vitamin D from two sources, our diet and from the action of sunlight on our skin which drives the natural production within the body. If we all had plenty of sun then we would have an abundance of Vitamin D, but in reality we do need to obtain some from our diet, particularly during the winter months and notably in the elderly as the body’s ability to manufacture Vitamin D declines with age. This is why the Government has identified five groups of people at risk of deficiency and recommends that they take a Vitamin D supplement.
The Government has made this recommendation because there is growing evidence that Vitamin D deficiencies are linked to a number of major health concerns that have been widely written about in the press. he recommendation from the Government for the at risk groups is to take a supplement of 400iu (10mcg) per day which is why we put this amount in most of our Multis. However our view is that this 1000iu product is a better choice, costs just 5p/day and is safe for long term use.
Our straight vitamin D products are the preferred form of vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol) and we insist on British Pharmacopoeia (BP) grade material. It’s this form that that is made in the human body.
Vitamin D contributes to:
- Maintenance of normal bone and teeth
- Maintenance of normal muscle function
- Normal function of the immune system and healthy inflammatory response
This product offers an unbeatable combination of all the most important minerals including relevant amounts of the two mega minerals, calcium and magnesium, that are so often included in suplements at just token levels.

We would normally suggest trying a supplement for three months before reassessing. However, we can appreciate that if you are taking a supplement for a nutrient deficiency, it may be more difficult for you to assess the benefits of the product unless you have your level retested.
