There are a wide range of vitamin D supplements on the market. The team at Healthwords have selected a range of products from trusted manufacturers that will provide high quality, vitamin D for you and your family. We will cover a range of situations that may mean needing to choose one specific product over another. Read on to find out more, and delve deeper into the world of Vitamin D products!

How do I get vitamin D into my child?

Our top choice for kids are Vitabiotics Wellkid Peppa Pig Vitamin D Strawberry Flavour. These brilliant jellies contain 400 IU and are a delicious natural strawberry flavour that is popular with kids (and adults who try them!). The jellies provide the recommended daily amount of vitamin D for children aged 3 to 7 years, so get your kids to chew one jelly per day and you can rest easy their vitamin D needs are met!

Any there other options for kids?

Our other top tip for kids would be the BetterYou Dlux Junior Daily Vitamin D Oral Spray 15ml. The spray provides a fast-acting and effective daily dose of vitamin D in a convenient oral spray formulation with none of the fuss of swallowing capsules, jellies or water. Each spray provides 400 IU of vitamin D, and is suitable for children 3 years or older. With one spray under the tongue or to the inside of the cheek, the vitamin D formulation is absorbed through the tissues and then directly into the bloodstream.

What products are suitable for vegans?

It's all in the name, but our pick of vegan suitable products is the BetterYou Dlux Vegan Vitamin D Daily Oral Spray. This is a vegan formulation made with simple ingredients containing only coconut oil and vitamin D in a convenient oral spray. Each dose provides 1000 IU of vitamin D. The spray is suitable for adults and children aged over 8 years of age, but recommended dosages will differ depending on the age of the child or adult - check with your pharmacist or doctor if you are unsure.

What if I'm after higher dosages of vitamin D?

For those people wanting to take higher dosages of vitamin D, there are some good options available. Vitabiotics Ultra Vitamin D 1000 IU Extra Strength, and BetterYou Dlux 4000 Vitamin D Daily Oral Spray Peppermint Flavour are our top picks for tablet and sprays. The higher dose formulation may be preferred by people who want to quickly elevate levels if taking on a daily basis. Alternatively, they could be taken on a weekly basis instead of other daily lower dose formulations for maintenance.

Vitabiotics Ultra Vitamin D 1000 IU Extra Strength 96 tablets are formulated to British Pharmacopoeia Quality Vitabiotics Ultra Vitamin D tablets provide 2000 IU vitamin D3 in a convenient daily tablet.

BetterYou Dlux 4000 Vitamin D Daily Oral Spray 15ml. This is a maximum strength formula to elevate and maintain vitamin D levels 4000 IU (100 micrograms). This dosage formulation is particularly suitable for those with very low vitamin D levels, to quickly elevate levels back to normal when taken on a daily basis. Alternatively, it could also be taken on a weekly basis instead of other daily lower dose formulations for those who want to maintain their vitamin D levels.
