If you’re feeling tired and run down all the time, suffering from unexplained aches and pains and continually falling victim to colds and other infections, then you may have a vitamin deficiency.
VIT-12 and VIT-D are essential vitamins that you can become deficient in, particularly if you follow a restricted or special diet, if you’re pregnant or breast feeding, if you suffer from certain health conditions or if you are over a certain age. Heavy smokers and drinkers can also have low levels of B12 + VitD.

VITAMIN D INJECTIONS
Vit D has been linked to helping the immune system beat covid.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS
If you’re feeling tired and rundown, then you may be lacking in Vitamin D. This essential nutrient is required for many of the main processes of the body and assists the body in its ability to absorb other minerals. Vitamin D is an important component in maintaining your general health and well-being.
Certain groups are more at risk of a Vitamin D deficiency, but it seems that our current lifestyles have left us all more susceptible and in need of an added boost.
Our Vitamin D Injection is the perfect solution for when you’re lacking your ‘sunshine vitamin’. Start feeling healthier and happier within minutes with our 5-second shot!
WHAT IS VITAMIN D AND WHY IT MATTERS?
We have all heard that vitamin D is good for our bones. However, few of us really understand how seriously a lack of vitamin D can impact our day to day wellbeing. In fact, one UK survey found that more than half of us are vitamin D deficient!
Why does this matter?
Vitamin D’s job is to regulate the level of calcium and phosphate in the body. It does this by controlling how much is absorbed in the gut and taken up by the different parts of the body, including muscle, teeth and bone. As a result, Vitamin D deficiency causes muscle weakness, tiredness and bone pain. In extreme cases, a lack of vitamin D can impair bone growth causing diseases of brittle or painful bones, such as Rickets in children and osteomalacia in adults.
WHERE DOES OUR VITAMIN D COME FROM?
Most of our vitamin D is produced in our skin. Sunlight plays a key role in activating the vitamin D, hence its nickname “the sunshine vitamin”. Unfortunately, winter sun is not great at making vitamin D (it does not contain enough ultraviolet B radiation) and sunlight through a window does not work either. The best way to get vitamin D from the sun is to exposure our skin to the summer sun. If you are spending a lot of time in the sun, remember to take the necessary precautions to protect your skin from sun damage!
We can also get vitamin D from oily fish (mackerel, herring, salmon, sardines), red meat, eggs and certain foods (breakfast cereals, formula milk) have added vitamin D.
THE BENEFITS OF VITAMIN D:
- Regulating calcium metabolism.
- Regulating calcification of the bones.
- Regulating the body’s use of phosphorus (a mineral that is important for bone structure).
- Increasing the absorption of calcium from the gut.
- Decreased excretion from the kidneys.
- Assists with depositing minerals into the teeth.
Maintains healthy blood levels of calcium and phosphorus.
- Helps maintain nervous system, heart function and normal blood clotting.
There are times, however, when we are not receiving enough Vitamin D naturally like in the winter or on a rainy day, this is when we will start to experience the lack of Vitamin D and need to find another source.
HOW OFTEN SHOULD I HAVE THE INJECTIONS?
The recommended dose is typically a single dose of 300,000 IU every 3-6 months.
