WHY INJECTION VS ORAL:

Both are safe and effective. A study done earlier this year found that Vitamin D injections lasts longer and has bigger response than weekly oral supplementation. But, with that said, it does depend on the patients choice and lifestyle. Injections may be better suited for you if:

  1. Skin Tone is dark or pale
  2. You are not consistent with the oral supplements
  3. You have mild to moderate mood changes in winter but only started taking Vitamin D supplements in August or later. (It takes about 6 month to get levels to optimal – taking close to 4000IUS a day)
  4. You suffer from SAD – Seasonal Affective Disorder –  or depression in winter.

WHAT IS INJECTED?

Vitamin D3. The best form of vitamin D.

IS IT PAINFUL?

No

WHO SHOULD GET THE INJECTION? Those WHO:

  1. Are Vitamin D deficient
  2. Skin Tone is dark or pale
  3. Do not get a lot of sunshine especially in winter
  4. Are not consistent with the vitamin D supplement
  5. Are not taking enough vitamin D supplement
  6. Suffer from Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD)
  7. Have poor GI absorption of nutrients
  8. Are Worried about bone health
  9. Women: Bones degrade faster then male counterparts
  10. Menopause: Bone loss speeds up and vitamin D protects your bones from calcium loss
