With Vitamin D3 Drops 5000 IU, it is particularly easy to cover the daily vitamin D requirement. They are ideal for those who do not wish to take capsules or would like to take a higher amount as Vitamin D depot supplement.
Vitamin D3 Drops contain vitamin D3 in pharmaceutically pure quality. For optimal bioavailability and stability, medium-chain triglycerides of coconut oil are used as the base. The vitamin D3 drops are guaranteed to be free from palm oil and other unwanted additives.
Experts recommend maintaining a vitamin D level of 60-80 ng/ml in the blood in order to fully benefit from the many advantages that vitamin D offers for health. But especially in the months when there is not a lot of sun exposure, it is almost impossible to generate enough vitamin D3.
A winter walk is unfortunately not enough, studies have proven this. North of the 42nd parallel (above Rome), the sun is simply too low in the winter months to allow enough UVB rays to pass through that would be necessary to produce vitamin D.
During the summer months, a person with fair skin under direct sunlight (in swimwear, without sun protection) produces around 10,000 IU in 10 to 20 minutes at noon (depending on the skin type). Depending on the pigmentation, people with dark skin produce less.
Three sunbaths a week are enough to be optimally supplied with vitamin D. The vitamin D stored over the summer lasts about 2 months. After that, the body relies on food or supplements.
Most people use a sunscreen with a high protection factor in the summer. But sun protection factor 8 already blocks the formation of vitamin D in the skin by up to 95%.
No wonder a large part of the population in Europe suffers from chronic vitamin D deficiency, not only in the winter but also in the summer.
Vitamin D is mainly found in oily fish, cod liver oil, offal and in small amounts in milk, eggs, and butter. However, the consumption of milk, eggs or butter, which is most commonly eaten in our latitudes, is too low to be able to absorb sufficient amounts of vitamin D through food.
According to a study by the University of Oxford, gene receptors all over the body need sufficient amounts of vitamin D for gene expression (conversion of the genetic information) to function normally.
A lack of vitamin D can, therefore, lead to serious illnesses. The reason why vitamin D is the key to our health is in our genes.
The effects of a vitamin D deficiency can clearly be seen from what vitamin D is responsible for in our body:
Vitamin D3 drops are ideal for replenishing vitamin D storage and for maintaining a healthy vitamin D level all year round.
Anyone who regularly takes high doses of Vitamin D3 as a nutritional supplement has an increased need for Vitamin K2. Because as a result of the intake of Vitamin D, increased amounts of calcium will be taken out of the food by the intestine. At the same time, the body increasingly produces Gla proteins, which have the task of transporting calcium in the body.
Gla proteins can only be activated through vitamin K2. When activated, calcium is bound to the proteins and transported to the bones and teeth, where it is absorbed.
At the same time, Vitamin K2 prevents calcium from being stored in those places where it is not desired, for example, in the arteries and other soft tissues of the body. Vitamin K2 helps keep the arteries clean and at the same time ensures that normal, strong bones are preserved.
Vitamin D3 and K2 work closely together to strengthen the bones and promote the health of the heart and arteries.
Therefore we recommend to everyone taking an additional 200 mcg of Vitamin K2 per day with a high dose of vitamin D3, e.g. our product vitamin K2 200 mcg.

Take 1 drop every 5 days or adjust the daily intake according to your current vitamin D requirement.
You can put the drop on a spoon or directly on your tongue. It may also be taken with food, e.g. you can put the drop on a piece of bread and eat it.
How much vitamin D3 should you take daily?
- Persons, who get a lot of sun:
Those who expose their body to the sun three times a week do not need to supplement with additional vitamin D during that time. As soon as the exposure to the sun is reduced, a daily intake of 1 drop Vitamin D3 (5000 IU) every second day is recommended.
- Persons, who get very little sun:
Those who rarely expose their skin to the sun, even in summer time, should take 1 drop Vitamin D3 (5000 IU) daily.
Important Note: Because each person has a different Vitamin D requirement, we recommend to all people, who take more than 5,000 IU Vitamin D3 (1 drop) daily on a regular basis, to have the 25(OH)D value tested every 3 month. This is the only way to ensure that neither too little nor too much Vitamin D is supplemented.
Each drop contains:
*%NRV (Nutrient Reference Value) according to EU regulation
Medium Chain Triglycerides from Coconut Oil, Vitamin D3 Oil from Lanolin
