What Is Valupak Vitamin D3?

Valupak Vitamin D3 are vitamin D supplements, available in tablet form. When taking these supplements your body will produce additional calcium, which is responsible for ensuring your bones are healthy and strong. Calcium is especially important in developing children, although should be a lifelong consideration. Vitamin D is also a useful supplement to take to boost your immune system, reducing the chances of contracting the flu or a cold.

Thanks to Prescription Doctor's convenient online service, you can buy Valupak Vitamin D3 without fuss. Simply place your order before 3pm on a weekday and our pharmacy will dispatch your item the same day. All items are dispatched via a fast and discreet next-day delivery service.


How Does Valupak Vitamin D3 Work?

The body is unable to produce most vitamins itself, with vitamin D being one of the very few exceptions. Sunlight increases the amount of vitamin D we are able to produce, but how much is produced will depend on a person’s skin type and how much time they are exposed to the UVB rays of the sun. Without enough vitamin D, rickets and osteoporosis can occur in the worst cases.

Most vitamin D is acquired from the sun or fortified foods

The problem is that many people don’t get the 10 mcg (400 IUs) of daily vitamin D they need.

This may be due to:

  • Low exposure to UVB in sunlight
  • Dark skin
  • Malabsorption of vitamin D
  • Not consuming fortified foods
  • Less sunshine between the months of October and March
  • Cancer prevention techniques meaning we stay out of the sun much more

Taking Valupak Vitamin D3 supplements will boost the vitamin D within the body, keeping us healthy.

Public Health England is particularly interested in ensuring more people have enough vitamin D, and it has published advice on why it is important.


How Do I Take Valupak Vitamin D3?
