Optimal levels of vitamin D are just a spray away, according to a study by health pioneers BetterYou in conjunction with the NHS.
The pilot study focused on 25 participants who had low vitamin D levels (below 50n/mol) and aimed to prove the effectiveness of an oral vitamin D spray in elevating serum levels.
Participant’s initially tested their levels using a home test kit developed by Sandwell and West Birmingham NHS Trust and then retested ten weeks later, after following their advised dosage of BetterYou’s DLux3000 Vitamin D Oral Spray.
Of all participants in the trial who had low vitamin D levels:
- Over half (52%) had clinically deficient levels of vitamin D (<30n/mol)
- Close to half (48%) had insufficient levels of vitamin D (30-50n/mol)
- All participants raised their vitamin D status (on average four and a half times) to an optimal level (>75n/mol)
- After only 10 weeks of oral spray supplementation, there was a significant increase in mean vitamin D Levels from 29.8n/mol to 136.4n/mol, within the optimal range for effective immunity.
- This trial has successfully demonstrated how a high dose oral spray of vitamin D can dramatically increase vitamin D levels and resolve insufficiency/deficiency to an optimal level.
Andrew Thomas founder and managing director of BetterYou said:
This trial shows that low vitamin D levels can be easily corrected by a simple and convenient oral spray supplementation.
It’s important for you to know your levels, as it’s estimated that around 10 million people have low vitamin D.
As the clocks change and the nights draw in, Public Health England recommends that everyone take a daily vitamin D supplement during autumn and winter.
