Vitamin preparation for vitamin D deficiency, to prevent rickets, and as supportive therapy in osteoporosis
For vitamin D deficiency – For strong, healthy bones
Vitamin D in the form of vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol) is necessary so that bones can develop normally and stay healthy. In children a deficiency could cause rickets, in adults softened bones and in older people the dreaded osteoporosis. For some time now, however, vitamin D deficiency has also been associated with a number of other disorders and diseases such as diabetes or cardiovascular problems, greater susceptibility to infection, as well as some tumors. Experts therefore absolutely advise having vitamin D levels checked and to supplement if there is a deficiency.
Vitamin D is synthesized in the skin with exposure to sufficiently intensive solar radiation. It is also absorbed from food in small amounts. Because so many people have office jobs, they avoid the sun (by wearing clothing or using sunscreen) or in the darker months (October to April), most people in Germany regularly have a detectable deficiency. Unfortunately, as people age, the body’s ability to synthesize vitamin D also decreases. Because few foods contain high levels of vitamin D, vitamin D deficiency usually cannot be compensated for through diet.
Vitamin D3-Hevert contains a high enough dose of vitamin D (1000 IU per tablet). Taking vitamin D regularly supplies the body with the required amount of vitamin D on an ongoing basis, making it possible for all metabolic processes that require vitamin D to function.
Taking Vitamin D3-Hevert regularly prevents deficiency and its consequences. Together with a diet high in calcium, Vitamin D3-Hevert ensures healthy bone growth and prevents porous, brittle bone structure. Vitamin D3-Hevert is well tolerated and is also suitable for babies and toddlers. Just 1 tablet a day can prevent vitamin D deficiency.

Do not use vitamin D3 if you are hypersensitive (allergic) to cholecalciferol (vitamin D3) or any of the other ingredients. Do not take vitamin D3 in cases of hypercalcemia (elevated calcium concentrations in the blood) and/or hypercalciuria (elevated calcium concentrations in urine). Do not take Vitamin D3 in cases of pseudohypoparathyroidism (abnormal parathyroid hormone levels), because the vitamin D requirement can be reduced through normal vitamin D sensitivity in phases, with the risk of long-term overdose. There are more easily controlled active substances with vitamin D activity for this situation.
The side effects of taking vitamin D develop as consequences of hypercalcemia (elevated calcium concentrations in the blood) in cases of overdose. Depending on the dose and treatment duration, severe and long-lasting hypercalcemia with its acute (cardiac arrhythmias, nausea, vomiting, psychological symptoms, altered levels of consciousness) and chronic (increased urge to urinate, greater thirst, loss of appetite, weight loss, formation of kidney stones, renal calcification, calcification in the tissues outside of bones) sequelae may occur . In isolated cases, the outcome has been fatal. (See also under Overdose and other dosing errors).
