We provide 100k IU vitamin D3 injections from our clinic on Harley Street, London.
Vitamin D injections are a quick and easy way to raise your vitamin D levels, which can offer a great boost for your health. Chronic health conditions can be improved, gut problems eased, and you can feel less run-down and fatigued.
- As with all vitamins, vitamin D is essential for your health
- Vitamin D plays a part in regulating the calcium and phosphate in your body, which are needed to keep your bones and teeth healthy
In the West, it is common that we don’t make enough vitamin D for our needs. Vitamin D is obtained from our diet or produced in the skin from exposure to sunlight, but due to the weather conditions, it is estimated that a fifth of the UK population is deficient in vitamin D.
In the darker months between October and March, The Scientific Advisory Committee on Nutrition (SACN) advises supplementation of 10 mcg of vitamin D every day. It is suggested that those with darker skin supplement with vitamin D throughout the entire year.
Oral ingestion of vitamin D can take several weeks or months to have a significant impact as it is processed inefficiently in the gut. Intramuscular vitamin D injections reach the bloodstream without such processing and are, therefore, much more effective.
