BetterYou D400 Junior Vitamin D Oral Spray delivers 400iu of vitamin D3, the bioactive form of vitamin D, for children over the age of 3.
Vitamin D promotes the development and maintenance of bones and teeth, supports a healthy immune system and aids muscle development. 90% of the vitamin D we need comes from our skins unprotected exposure to sunlight. Living in the UK makes it difficult for little ones to get the vitamin D they need. Even in summer months sun cream of factor 15 or above, cloud cover and clothing all effectively block vitamin D production.

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.
Do I need to take the spray with food or drink?
No. The Better You 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.
