Rarely do our doctors, scientists and health advisors all agree on anything, but one thing that does achieve consensus is the fact we all need more vitamin D.
Experts in the fields of cancer studies, cardiovascular medicine, paediatrics and nutrition are all issuing warnings that by failing to address underlying deficiencies in the ‘sunshine vitamin’ we are storing up long term health problems.
You may have been led to believe that the sun exposure provides all of the vitamin D we need as our skin builds the essential compound.
But unless you are living on the equator and can expose your body for 20-30 minutes a day you are not getting enough from the sun alone.
This means virtually everyone can benefit from supplementing their diet with vitamin D.
For most this is a capsule or pill every day, but research has shown that this may not be the most effective way of getting blood levels of this essential vitamin to the correct levels.
But help is at hand and it takes a mere 10 seconds a day to rebalance your body’s stores, just a spray under the tongue is all you need.
This vitamin D3 spray is the easy way to maintain good health in the dark winter months, or when you’re stuck in an office all day.
It’s formulated with vitamin D3, the active, absorbable form of vitamin D, and aids the normal function of the immune system.
- Easy to use vitamin D spray
- Ideal for those who have minimal sunlight exposure, especially during winter
- Active form of vitamin D3 which is more easily absorbed
- Natural peppermint flavour and sweetened with tooth friendly xylitol
- Suitable for vegetarians
Take 2 sprays in mouth a day (children over 3 years, 1 spray a day)
Some people will not get enough vitamin D from sunlight because they have very little or no sunshine exposure.
The Department of Health and Social Care recommends that you take a daily supplement containing 10 micrograms of vitamin D throughout the year if you:
- are not often outdoors – for example, if you’re frail or housebound
- are in an institution like a care home
- usually wear clothes that cover up most of your skin when outdoors
If you have dark skin – for example you have an African, African-Caribbean or south Asian background – you may also not get enough vitamin D from sunlight.
Avoid contact with eyes. Store in a cool, dry, steam free environment out of reach of children. Do not exceed recommended daily intake. Food supplements should not be used as a substitute for a varied and balanced diet and healthy lifestyle. Contains xylitol. Do not feed xylitol to dogs – if consumed seek veterinary advice.

Vitamin D helps regulate the amount of calcium and phosphate in the body.
These nutrients are needed to keep bones, teeth and muscles healthy.
A lack of vitamin D can lead to bone deformities such as rickets in children, and bone pain caused by a condition called osteomalacia in adults.
Vitamin D has multiple roles in the body. It assists in:
- promoting healthy bones and teeth
- supporting immune, brain, and nervous system health
- regulating insulin levels and supporting diabetes management
- supporting lung function and cardiovascular health
- influencing the expression of genes involved in cancer development
