Sanderson Premium Vitamin D3 1000IU 100cap
Vitamin D is known as the ‘sunshine’ vitamin because the body obtains this essential vitamin from the sun’s UV rays. With increased awareness of the harmful effects of over exposure to sunlight, and promotion of reduced exposure to reduce the risk of skin cancer, it is becoming evident that more and more people have low vitamin D levels. Older people in rest homes, or the house bound are at particular risk of deficiency.
There is also evidence of mild vitamin D deficiency in younger adults, particularly during winter. The more pigment there is in the skin, the less vitamin D is produced, so dark skinned people, those who avoid the sun or women who wear veils, are at increased risk of deficiency.
Adults: Take 1 Capsule daily with food or as professionally prescribed. Always read the label and use as directed. If symptoms persist see your healthcare professional.
Each softgel capsule contains:
Vitamin D (as Cholcalciferol) 1000IU

Of all published cases of vitamin D toxicity for which a vitamin D amount is known, only one occurred at a level of intake under 40,000 IU per day.

Small and easy to swallow, I have one every morning and find them especially helpful in the winter when the lack of sunlight can bring on a bit of depression. Also at my age of 68, its great to be able to take something to help keep bones strong and healthy.
This is just what I was searching for, as it is free from soy, artificial colouring, flavours, artificial preservatives or sweeteners. In addition it has no sugar, sodium, wheat, yeast, gluten, milk, fish, or lactose. It is easy to swallow being a tiny capsule. It is affordable and with 100 capsules in the bottle will last for ages. Research shows Vit D 3 can provide protection against respiratory illnesses including Covid.
