Vitamin D3 Drops is a vegetarian liquid formula providing 1000iu vitamin D3 per drop to support a healthy immune system as well as healthy bones, muscles and teeth.
Vitamin D3 Drops is designed to offer an easy way to supplement with vitamin D, which is important for our bones, muscles and teeth as well as our immune system. Our formula is provided in a base of easy-to-absorb MCT (medium chain triglycerides) oil, with a natural orange flavour, and nothing else added. Vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin, so providing it in a triglyceride (fat) base helps you to absorb it.

What does vitamin D3 do?
Vitamin D3 plays an important role in supporting a healthy, balanced immune system. Low vitamin D levels, which are common amongst the UK population, particularly during winter, may compromise our immune response and leave us at risk of infection. Because it helps to balance the immune system, it's important for those with over-active immune systems too. It is also needed for bone health - without it, our bodies cannot absorb calcium which is critical for strong bones and is needed for muscle function. This is important in older people who may be more at risk of falling, a risk factor for fractures. It is also very important for the normal growth & development of bones in children.
Why choose our Vitamin D3 Drops?
Here at Nutri Advanced we have long understood the benefits of vitamin D supplementation and introduced our first liquid vitamin D product over 10 years ago to provide an easy and hassle-free way for the whole family to support their vitamin D levels. We use the D3 form of vitamin D in our product, which is the same form made in the skin in response to sunlight, meaning it is easier for the body to absorb than other forms. Each single drop provides 1000iu vitamin D, so it is easy to increase or reduce the dose as required, and means you can use it with the whole family. With approximately 900 drops per bottle, the average cost per 1000iu of Vitamin D (1 drop) is less than 2p making it better value than a lot of cheaper vitamin D supplement alternatives.
Who is it suitable for?
This formula is suitable for adults and children over the age of 1 who want to ensure adequate intake of vitamin D3 but is particularly suited to those more at risk of deficiency including the those over 65 years of age, people with darker skin who naturally make less vitamin D in response to sunlight, and children under 5 years of age. The bone support provided by adequate vitamin D levels is particularly important for children whose bones are developing and those over 65 years old for whom falling is a risk factor for bone fractures. Vitamin D3 Drops is suitable for children from age 1 at a dose of 1 drop per day, and adults are recommended to take 1-5 drops per day. The dose for children should be adjusted according to age and bodyweight. Our vitamin D3 is derived from lanolin (sheep wool). It is therefore suitable for vegetarians but not vegans
Who is at risk of vitamin D deficiency?
Between October and March, everyone in the UK is at risk of low levels of vitamin D, as we cannot generate enough vitamin D in the skin through sunlight in those months, and it is very difficult to consume enough through food. It is thought that as little as 10% of our vitamin D intake comes from the food we eat. Supplementation with 400iu (10mcg) is recommended to adults and children over the age of one, particularly during the autumn and winter months; and groups at risk of deficiency such as those who have little or no exposure to sun, are recommended to supplement all year round.
Suitable for vegetarians, adults and children from age 1.
