What is Colecalciferol?

Do you miss feeling energised and upbeat? Can’t get up from the sofa? Or yawning your way through your favourite TV series.

Do you miss feeling energised and upbeat? Can’t get up from the sofa? Or yawning your way through your favourite TV series. We’ve all been there. Do you ever wake up in the morning all aches and pains, or experience discomfort in your legs, arms, hips or neck after a gym session or even an easy walk? If you’re tired of being tired, or suffering from pesky muscle aches, cramps or even mood swings that are stopping you feeling like your best self, it could be that your Vitamin D stores are low.

Why do we need Vitamin D?

When you live in a climate (hello UK!) with limited sun exposure, it’s possible, or even probable that you’re lacking in the revitalising, mood changing Vitamin D Colecalciferol that our bodies and minds need to thrive.

We usually get our vitamin D through exposure to sunlight and diet. Not having enough Vitamin D can lead to bone conditions such as rickets and osteomalacia in children, and osteoporosis in adults.

A Vitamin D boost is particularly recommended for people who don’t spend much time outdoors, or are fully covered when they go out, for pregnant or breastfeeding mothers and for those with darker skin, which may not make enough Vitamin D from sunlight.

So how can you boost your Vitamin D intake to improve your mood, tiredness levels and banish aches and pains? Team Vegetology has developed a supplement that will give you all the Vitamin D3, or Cholecalciferol (often spelled Colecalciferol) that you need to feel like you again.

What’s Colecalciferol, or Vitamin D?

Vitamin D is made by the skin when it’s exposed to UV light. It’s also found in foods, such as oily fish (sardines, salmon, mackerel and herring), red meat, liver, eggs (specifically yolks) and some fortified foods like breakfast cereals and cereal bars. But even with a balanced, healthy diet, it’s hard to get all the vitamins we need through food alone.

Why not reach for a supplement? Vegetology’s Chewable Colecalciferol is a form of Vitamin D which helps your body absorb more Calcium and Phosphorous from food, and helps your kidneys keep more Calcium instead of peeing it all out.

What’s the difference between Colecalciferol and Cholecalciferol?

If you’re searching for vitamins or supplements for Vitamin D deficiencies, you’ve probably come across the terms Lanolin and Colecalciferol or Cholecalciferol. Is there a difference? Cholecalciferol is just another term for Vitamin D3 and Colecalciferol is a type of Vitamin D that is made by the skin when exposed to UV-B light, so the short answer is, they’re almost interchangeable and a good supplement will provide both.

How can we get Vitamin D?

Taking daily Vitamin D3 Cholecalciferol tablets is safe and does not normally cause side effects, although taking excessive amounts can cause Calcium and Phosphate to build up in your body which can cause hypercalcaemia. This is why it’s best to take a Vegetology supplement as we’ve measured out exactly what’s safe and healthy for you to take in your daily dose.
