Very handy this time of year during the long winter nights and short days.

Typed 'vitamin d3' into search on Amazon and first result was a year's supply of a higher dose for under 11 quid.
I don't think this is such a good deal!

Any particular reason why this would be better than say, Tesco's own-branded Vitamin D caps?

1 a day try 6 or 1 per 25lbs of bodyweight. 1 is to little.

The difference according to the person who advised them to me is that these are made to GMP:

Which is the highest quality.

The thing I am concerned about these "year" deals, is that once the pot is opened I doubt that the pills will last a year.

EXCELLENT!

I'm pretty sure all of the others are made to GMP. Just avoid anything made in India or China, their accreditation isn't worth the paper its written on.

Definitely agree with you on second point.

Apparently most are not made to GMP, they usually state it if they are.

But you make a good point generally for all of us on Hot UK Deals, cheapest is not always best value for money, I think we really need to start questioning where something is made and how etc. Not really relevant to this deal, but I am definitely looking to buy more British made stuff, as there is on the whole a better chance of it being quality, especially with things like my food, am going more local whenever possible.

Absolutely. I've worked in, set up and assessed GMP facilities all of my career and I just don't consume anything made in India or China; its just not worth the risk. The costs are one tenth of manufacturing the UK but slowly the tide is turning, the outsourcing experiment has failed.

Found a better alternative to the previous one I quoted - Link, it's also produced in the UK and GMP certified; so ticks all your boxes? This one's been on the market since 2013.

139 5* reviews, a portion of the every purchase made with them goes to Sclerosis charities. Clearly advocates good practice/ethics.

It's dropped down to £9.99 few times before (currently at £14.99), so I'm going to set a price watch this on camelcamelcamel.com.

Good spot, but my doctor advised I take a 1000 units a day. I suppose it depends what you need! But that looks good as well.

Thanks for this, now thats an evidence backed answer! Regarding your last point, would you say GMP is not a guarantee of quality then?

Thanks again.

For somebody that is concerned about whether these chemicals would be ok for a year, I'm surprised you're taking pills and not looking to get this from food sources!

I believe its very difficult to get sufficient vitamin D from food sources. But I maybe wrong of course.

You are somewhat correct. Vitamin D3 is the "sunshine" vitamin. Anyone who doesnt get out much or covers up almost all of their skin when outside is at risk of vitamin D3 deficiency. And it cannot be obtained purely through diet.

I would assume that if these are sold in commercial containers of one years supply and more, that they are safe for that long. The most recent vitamins I bought from Asda are dated 2016.

Ok! This one is pure vitamin D too. Sounds like you must be very deficient rather than just needing a supplement.

Too much of anything is not good, Be careful before you self prescribe them. You only need to take them,if you have to
