What is Pro D3?

Pro D3 is a Vitamin D supplement used to top-up your levels of Vitamin D. It comes available in either capsules or liquid form and both contain the active ingredient cholecalciferol, which is also known as Vitamin D3.

Vitamin D has multiple roles in the body. It helps to:

  • Regulate the amount of calcium and phosphate in the body
  • Promote healthy bones and teeth
  • Support immune, brain, and nervous system health
  • Regulate insulin levels and support diabetes management
  • Support lung function and cardiovascular health
  • Influence the expression of genes involved in cancer development

1 in 5 people in the UK have low vitamin D levels, according to a national survey. For most people, 400 IU (about 10 mcg) of vitamin D is the recommended daily intake.

A lack of vitamin D can lead to serious health problems such as, bone deformities (rickets) in children and bone pain caused by a condition called osteomalacia in adults.

Looking to buy Pro D3 vitamin D supplements online? With Prescription Doctor, you can buy with confidence from our UK based pharmacy. Place your order before 3pm and our pharmacy will dispatch your item the same day via a fast and discreet next-day delivery.


How Does Pro D3 Work?

Pro D3 works by helping your body absorb a mineral called calcium. Vitamin D3 is used as a dietary supplement in people who do not get enough vitamin D that their body needs to function normally.

Vitamin D is extremely important as it helps to maintain your bones and muscles. It also plays a role in supporting the immune system.

There are three ways your body can get the Vitamin D it needs:

  1. Exposure to enough direct sunlight on your skin
  2. Various food sources (such as oily fish, read meat, egg yolk and fortified cereals and dairy products)
  3. From a good vitamin D supplement

Most vitamin D is acquired from the sun or fortified foods

Normally most of the vitamin D we need is produced by cells in the skin, which produce vitamin D when exposed to sunlight. During the colder months, between October and March, the amount of sunlight decreases, so our bodies do not produce as much vitamin D.

Currently with more people staying indoors due to Coronavirus (Covid-19) they may be more deprived of vitamin D. As a result of the ongoing pandemic, the NHS have advised people should consider taking 10 micrograms of vitamin D a day if they are spending more time indoors than usual.

According to the British Nutrition Foundation, no single food or supplement will protect you from contracting covid-19. But eating a healthy, balanced and varied diet can support your immune system and help protect you from infections. You can watch their video below which breaks down some myths about nutrition and the immune system.

How do our bodies produce vitamin D?

Vitamin D is the only vitamin our bodies can produce itself. In fact, most of our daily requirement of vitamin D can be created by simply exposing our skin to the sun.

Ultra-violet type B (UVB) rays from the sun cause a reaction in cells in the body. These cells convert a type of fat called 7-dehydrocholesterol into vitamin D3 when exposed to UVB radiation. The fat-soluble vitamin D is then transported into the blood vessels deep inside the epidermis.

The blood then carries the vitamin throughout the body to areas which need it, such as the bones and muscles.

Vitamin D can also be consumed in your daily diet by certain foods such as oily fish and fortified dairy products.

Tiny finger-like protrusions in the intestine called villi pull out vitamins and nutrients from these foods and pass them straight into the blood stream.

When your body is not getting enough vitamin D from exposure to sunlight or diet, supplements can help to provide you with an adequate amount and keep you healthy.

You can safely buy Pro D3 online however you should always consult your doctor before purchasing any medication online.


How Do I Take Pro D3?

Pro D3 is a vitamin D supplement which is available as capsules and liquid.

If you are taking Pro D3 capsules: Take one capsule daily with or without food. Swallow the capsule whole with a glass of water. Do not crush, chew or break the capsule.
