What is Colekal D3?
Colekal D3 is a form of vitamin D, but to understand its importance, we need to know what vitamin D is.
Vitamin D is an essential vitamin, one that we cannot live without. It plays a major role in keeping our muscles, bones and teeth healthy and low levels of it are linked to everything from depression to cancer.
Vitamin D can be acquired from exposing the skin to sunlight (in fact we get the majority of our vitamin D from the sun). In dark winter months this can become much harder, which is where Colekal D3 comes in.
How does Colekal D3 work?
Colekal D3 works by increasing the amount of Vitamin D3 (colecalciferol) in your body. Vitamin D helps to support your body’s function by increasing your levels of calcium and phosphate. It is available in different dosages, the smallest of which are used to prevent levels of vitamin D dropping to a degree that might impact your health.
But Colekal isn’t just for prevention. It can also help to treat severe deficiencies that can lead to serious bone conditions. In these cases you’ll likely need a prescription for the higher doses of Colekal, which are taken over a number of weeks.
What doses of Colekal D3 are there?
