Vitashine™ Vegan Vitamin D3 2500iu Tablets Frequently Asked Questions

What is Vitashine and where is it from?
Vitashine is a vegan and vegetarian Vitamin D3 (Cholecalciferol) nutritional supplement. Our Vitamin D3 comes from a plant source called a lichen.
How do I use Vitashine?
Vitashine is supplied as tablets which can be chewed or swallowed with water, or as an oral spray which can be administered directly into the mouth or sprayed onto food.
What is the dose I should take?
Vitashine tablets are ideal for those seeking a higher level (available in 1000IU and 2500IU strength). We recommend consulting your Doctor for advice on dose.
How long will a bottle of Vitashine last?
Vitashine tablets will last 60 days at the stated doses.
Can I take Vitashine during pregnancy?
Yes, but always seek advice from your Health Practitioner before taking any supplements. Vitamin D helps you regulate calcium and phosphate levels in the body. A BBC report concluded “Pregnant women “must take Vitamin D supplements"".
Is Vitashine registered with the Vegan Society?
There is justified skepticism about vegan source Vitamin D3 supplements and we are very proud that our products are registered with the Vegan Society and Vegetarian Society.
Can my children take Vitashine?
Yes. It is widely recommended that children are given Vitamin D3 and we recommend using the Vitashine Spray, at a daily dose of 200IU per day (1 spray).
How should I store Vitashine?
Vitashine should be stored in a cool dry place, out of the sight and reach of children. Refrigeration is recommended to maintain maximum freshness. Use within 3 months of opening.
Allergy advice with Vitashine?
Vitashine is free from sugar, wheat, gluten and dairy products.
Is Vitamin D3 superior to Vitamin D2?
The healthy debate continues on this topic. In our opinion, the published research suggests Vitamin D3 is superior. One particular peer-reviewed study concluded that Vitamin D3 is at least 87% more potent than Vitamin D2.
Can I take higher doses of Vitamin D3?
We recognise many people seek higher doses of Vitamin D3 than the RDA of 200IU. That is why we offer flexibility and options of doses. Always consult your Doctor or Health Practitioner if you are considering taking a higher dose.
Where does Vitamin D3 usually come from?
Meat and fish are the most common sources of Vitamin D3 in the diet. The reason conventional Vitamin D3 supplements are not suitable for Vegetarians and Vegans is because the D3 is extracted from sheep’s wool (Lanolin) or other animal sources.
Do lichens have proven safety?
Yes. In fact the lichen we use is classed as a food ingredient with a long history of safety.
