Description

Fultium D3 is a supplement used in the prevention of vitamin D deficiency. It is a capsule containing the active ingredient colecalciferol.

In the UK, the RNI (reference nutrient intake) of vitamin D for adults is 10mcg per day, which is equivalent to 400IU. To prevent deficiency, people in the UK over the age of four are advised to consider taking a 10mcg supplement each day (particularly during darker months over the autumn and winter).

Vitamin D is required by the body in order for it to efficiently process and regulate the levels of calcium and phosphate in the system. It helps to maintain healthy muscles and strong bones. Vitamin D deficiency can lead to osteoporosis, and other health issues. 

Vitamin D deficiency is quite a common condition in the UK. When our skin is exposed to ultraviolet B (UVB) rays found in sunlight it produces vitamin D. The vitamin is important as it aids our gut with the absorption of calcium and phosphorous from food, both of which are required to maintain healthy teeth, muscles and bones. Most of our intake of this particular vitamin is from sunlight, as not many food sources naturally contain it. It can be found in some oily fish such as sardines, mackerel and salmon but the amount is quite small.

Vitamin D deficiency can develop at any age, but there are certain groups who are more likely to be affected. Some groups are higher risk because they have an increased need for vitamin D. This includes pregnant women, women who breastfeed, and young children. Sometimes in these groups, the body’s natural stores of vitamin D are either depleted or have not been sufficiently built up, so deficiency may be more likely.

Other groups may be more at risk because their body is not able to produce sufficient vitamin D levels. This can affect a number of people including those who: are in hospital for a significant amount of time; are unable to leave the house; wear clothing that covers most of their body when outdoors, due to cultural or religious beliefs; are elderly; have a darker skin colour; or who have already been diagnosed with certain medical conditions, such as Crohn’s and coeliac disease.

The majority of people living with vitamin D deficiency may not be aware that they have it. This is because it does not present any obvious symptoms. Adults with a low amount of vitamin D in their system might feel tired, achy or generally unwell. Vitamin D deficiency can eventually lead to skeletal issues such as osteoporosis or osteomalacia.

It can be difficult for UK residents to receive sufficient vitamin D from sunlight and diet alone, especially during the winter months. However, the body creates stores of the vitamin during the sunnier summer months.

To help prevent vitamin D deficiency, a person may be prescribed a course of treatment such as Fultium D3. A doctor will typically decide on the strength and dosage required depending on the vitamin D levels present.
