Not everyone finds it easy to swallow tablets, and if you have already got medication to take each day, then the last thing you might want is another pill on your plate.
That is why BetterYou created this handy vitamin D oral spray.
Made with a breath-freshening, pick-me-up peppermint flavour, this spray makes getting your daily dose of the sunshine vitamin as simple as a quick daily spritz to the inside of your cheek or under your tongue.
Easily absorbed directly into the bloodstream, BetterYou’s vitamin D spray delivers 3000IU of vitamin D3 in every dose, making it just as effective as vitamin D tablets but half as challenging to swallow.
Why a vitamin D3 supplement?
Vit D is more than just a single nutrient. It is actually a whole family, mama and papa of which are D2, also known as ergocalciferol and D3, or cholecalciferol.
While D2 is found in plant-based foods, D3 is more commonly found in animal produce, making a veggie friendly supplement, like BetterYou’s daily oral spray, a particularly vital addition for vegetarians or those on a dairy-free diet.
Because it is better at raising your levels of calcifediol, the main circulating form of vitamin D, vitamin D3 tends to be the preferred ingredient in a vitamin D supplement.
In fact, vitamin D3 is shown in some studies to be twice as effective at raising blood calcifediol levels.
Who needs vitamin D?
Whether it is vitamin D capsules or a handy spray, vitamin D is recommended by national governments and health services in many countries, the world over.
Why? Because although vitamin D is found in a wide range of foods, we gain most of our supplies from sunlight.
So, when you live in a country that gets very little sun for half the year (we are looking at you, the UK), it is important to find an alternative source.
Those at higher risk of a vitamin D deficiency include people with darker skin, those who live in high rise cities where light levels are lower, pregnant and breastfeeding women and the over 65s.
People who suffer with certain diseases can also experience low vitamin D levels, with those who have had heart attacks appearing to be at particular risk.
Vitamin D for health and happiness
The side effects of a lack of vitamin D are well documented.
This vital vitamin is required to help us maintain healthy bones, muscles and teeth.
But it is not just your bones that will thank you for giving your body a healthy dose of vitamin D.
And with other potential benefits including playing an integral part in cell division and contributing to normal utilisation of calicum and phosphorus , vitamin D is a wonder vitamin worth adding to your morning routine.
