Vitamin D helps in the absorption of calcium and phosphorus from the diet and use these minerals to keep the bones, teeth and muscles healthy. Vitamin D also has other roles in the body’s immune system and heart health.
A lack of vitamin D causes the bone problem in children called rickets (which causes bowed legs). It is recommended by the NHS that children between the ages of 1 and 4 take a daily vitamin D supplement.
In adults, vitamin D deficiency can cause muscle weakness and painful or brittle bones. If you spend a lot of time indoors and don’t get a lot of exposure to the sun, you should consider taking a vitamin D supplement.
During the colder months (October and March), it’s generally advised that adults take a vitamin D supplement. This is due to diminishing sunshine during winter, which results in less vitamin D being produced in the body.
There are not many foods which provide a sufficient amount of vitamin D for our bodies. While oily fish, egg yolks and fortified foods provide vitamin D, most of our vitamin D is produced by cells in our body when we expose our skin to sunshine.
The majority of Vitamin D we need is obtained through exposure to sunlight; however, during colder months, between October and March, the shorter days mean we can’t get a sufficient amount of Vitamin D from the sun alone. Moreover, some people are not exposed enough to sunlight to make the required amount of Vitamin D from sunlight.
While some foods, such as eggs, oily fish and fortified foods, provide us with vitamin D, it is not a sufficient quantity to fulfil our daily requirements.
Therefore, a good vitamin D supplement is often recommended during the winter and to those at risk of developing a vitamin D deficiency.
However, we only need 10 mcgs (400 IUs) of vitamin D per day. In fact, you can get your weekly need of vitamin D by spending 15 minutes in the midday sun for 3 days a week.
The Department of Public Health determines the specific groups of the population who are at high risk of developing Vitamin D deficiency including
All of these groups are recommended to have a daily intake of vitamin D supplement or fortified food to make up for the deficiency of vitamin D.
HuxD3 replenish the amount of Vitamin D in our bodies. Vitamin D is an essential vitamin which helps to regulate the amount of calcium and phosphate in the body. It plays a significant role in keeping our bones strong. Vitamin D works by assisting in the reabsorption of calcium from the intestine and decreases its excretion from kidneys.
The prime source of producing vitamin D is sunlight. Vitamin D is naturally formed from the cholesterol in the body when the skin is exposed to the ultra-violet B rays of the sun.
In the absence of adequate sunlight, the level of vitamin D reduces in the body and a daily supplement such as HuxD3 is required to meet the requirement of vitamin D.
Take one capsule of HuxD3 every two weeks or as directed by a doctor. Take whole capsule with a glass of water. If you have difficulty in swallowing the capsule, you can chew or break open it.
Vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin, so it is better to take HuxD3 with a meal to ensure the maximum absorption.
Before taking HuxD3 capsules, it's important to familiarise yourself with the supplied safety information.
If you are unsure whether HuxD3 vitamin D capsules are suitable for you, speak to your doctor or a pharmacist for advice.

Always speak to your doctor before you buy HuxD3 capsules online from Prescription Doctor.
Do not take HuxD3 past the expiry date printed on the packaging. The date refers to the last day of the specified month. For example "EXP: 03/2025" means the 31st of March 2025.
Never throw away medicine via household or water waste. You should take any unwanted or expired medicine to your local pharmacy and ask them to dispose of it safely on your behalf.
Always store medicine out of sight and reach from children and pets.
Never share your medicines or health supplements with anybody else, even if they are experiencing the same symptoms as you or have been diagnosed with the same condition.
If you forget to take HuxD3 when you should, take it as soon as you remember. Do not take more HuxD3 capsules to make up for the dose you missed.
You should not take more than 100 micrograms (4,000 IU) of Vitamin D a day. Taking more Vitamin D than you should cause a build-up of calcium in the blood (hypercalcaemia) which is dangerous for your bones, kidneys and heart.
Alcohol does not interact with HuxD3 capsules or Vitamin D. Avoid drinking more than the recommended limit of 14 units per week.
According to the British Associated of Dermatologists (BAD), sunscreen may slightly decrease vitamin D levels though it's not unlikely that the use of sunscreen will drastically increase the risk of vitamin D deficiency.
There is no evidence to suggest that taking vitamin D supplements will prevent or treat covid-19, according to NICE.
