BetterYou D1000 is a convenient daily oral vitamin D spray to help maintain healthy vitamin D levels, to support a healthy lifestyle.
Specially formulated to be absorbed via the soft tissues in the mouth, each D1000 spray delivers 1000iu of vitamin D3 as a maintenance dose.
Vitamin D3 is of particular importance to children and the elderly, vitamin D aids calcium absorption and is fundamental for maintaining healthy bones and teeth. Vitamin D also plays an active role in numerous processes carried out in the body and may be useful for immunity, mood elevation and sugar metabolism. It has been reported to the Department of Health that more than 50% of the adult population have insufficient levels of vitamin D. Research clearly shows that only a small proportion of our essential vitamin D requirement is satisfied by our diet and fewer and fewer of us are managing the recommended 2-3 hours of direct sunlight each week. Using a spray form of vitamin D3 avoids digestion by the stomach acids ensuring maximum delivery into the bloodstream.

What dosage of vitamin D should I take?
We recommend a dosage level based on body weight and advise supplementation of 1000IU of vitamin D per 25kg of body weight. This usually equates to one spray of D3000 per day for adults living in the UK. For children our D400 Infant and D400 Junior products provide ideal daily dosage levels.
I'm taking multiple sprays, should I spread it throughout the day or take them all at once?
This is down to personal preference, either way provides optimal absorption.
How long will the Vitamin D Oral Spray last?
Vitamin D Oral Sprays contain 100 sprays per bottle. If you are using the recommended dosage of one spray per day, it will last 100 days. While the Vitamin D+K2 contains 90 sprays, with 3 sprays per dosage this will last 30 days.
Do I need to take the spray with food or drink?
No. The oral sprays avoid primary processing by the digestive system, meaning it can be taken at any time of day with or without food. The active ingredients are delivered directly into the bloodstream via the inner cheek.
Are there any contraindications with taking the vitamin D sprays?
There are no interactions with taking the single nutrient vitamin D oral sprays with any medication. However, if you are taking anti-coagulants (blood thinners) we do not recommend the D3000+K2, unless on the advice of your doctor. We always recommend speaking to your GP before starting any dietary supplements if you are on any medications or have any medical conditions.
