Cholecalciferol (Vitamin D3) High Strength

Cholecalciferol (Vitamin D) Capsules

Many people in Tasmania unfortunately do not get enough Vitamin D. This may be through several factors including our low latitude, the dislike of going outside through our cold (and dark!) winters, overuse of sunscreens, and little exposure to sunlight (working indoors, or rugging up in cold weather, minimising the skin's exposure to sunlight).

Some vitamin D may also be found through dietary sources including but not limited to mushrooms, alfaalfa, seafood sources, eggs, beef liver. However, most dietary sources are inadequate to provide the vitamin D that we require.

There is some evidence being published indicating vitamin D may help in prevention of auto-immune disorders, cancers, cardiovascular diseases, diabetes and many other diseases. Most evidence at this stage is conflicting in its final conclusion, but as vitamin D is relatively inexpensive to supplement, it is worthwhile providing supplementation.

Many doctors monitor vitamin D levels and prescribe high dose supplements that are custom compounded onsite by our compouding pharmacists. These high dose supplements are much more convenient than conventional supplements as they usually only have to be taken once weekly and for six months of therapy (usually indicated in Tasmania from 'Anzac Day to Show Day) are more cost effective than over the counter supplements.

Contact us to discuss options relating to your vitamin D requirements. There are a few variations of vitamin D, and as such, not one single form is suitable for the entire population. Your doctor and pharmacist will be able to determine this for you.
