What is Fultium D3?

Fultium D3 is a vitamin D supplement available in capsule form. It is prescribed to treat or prevent vitamin D deficiency.

Deficiency of vitamin D can occur when your diet or lifestyle does not provide you enough vitamin D or when your body requires more vitamin D than usual, e.g. if you are pregnant.

Fultium D3 may also be prescribed for certain bone conditions, such as thinning of the bone (osteoporosis) when it will be given to you alongside other medication.

Looking to renew your prescription for Fultium D3? With Prescription Doctor's convenient online pharmacy, you can safely buy Fultium D3 following a short online medical consultation. Simply complete our online questionnaire for our doctor to determine whether the treatment is suitable for you.

If your order is approved by our doctor before 3pm, Monday to Friday, our UK based pharmacy will dispatch your item the same day via a fast and discreet next-day delivery service.


How Does Fultium D3 Work?

Fultium D3 contains the active ingredient cholecalciferol, also known as vitamin D. It increases the amount of vitamin D in the body, contributing to the maintenance of bones and muscles, as well as helping the immune system.

Most vitamin D is acquired from the sun or fortified foods

Our body creates vitamin D from exposure to direct sunlight on the skin when outdoors. Vitamin D is also available from some foods such as:

  • Oily fish (e.g. Salmon, sardines)
  • Red meat
  • Egg yolks
  • Fortified cereals and dairy products

A deficiency in vitamin D develops when there is a lack of vitamin D in the body. This can be the result of inadequate exposure to sunlight, whether due to the less amount of sunlight during the winter months or spending a lot of time indoors. Without the right amount of exposure to the sun, cells in the skin cannot convert cholesterol into vitamin D.

With more people now staying indoors due to Coronavirus (Covid-19), they may be deprived of vitamin D a lot more than usual. The NHS have advised people should consider taking 10 micrograms of vitamin D a day if they are spending a lot of their time indoors.

While vitamin D itself cannot categorically prevent or treat Covid-19, ensuring you eat a healthy, balanced and varied diet is important for your immune system and helps it fight infections. You can watch the video below from the British Nutrition Foundation for more about the relationship between diet and immunity against the novel coronavirus.

Supplements such as Fultium D3 can help to provide our bodies with the right amount of vitamin D.

Vitamin D is important for the body to absorb calcium from the gut and a vitamin D deficiency can lead to low calcium levels and the weakening of the bones, known as osteomalacia.

You can safely buy Fultium D3 online from Prescription Doctor, however you always consult your doctor before purchasing any medication online.


How Do I Take Fultium D3?

Always follow your doctor’s instructions on how to take Fultium D3. The number of capsules you take each day will depend on the severity of your vitamin D deficiency.

Typically, Fultium D is taken once a day, unless instructed otherwise by your doctor.

You take Fultium D capsules by swallowing them whole with a drink of water. Fultium D capsules can be taken with or without food.

Do not open, crush, or chew the capsule.

Your doctor will monitor how you respond to the treatment over time and adjust your dose accordingly.
