Osteoporosis Canada recommends 400-1000 IU daily for healthy adults between 19-50 years, and 800-2000 IU daily for those over 50 or at high risk (i.e. osteoporosis, multiple fractures). You will find vitamin D supplements in the form of D3 (cholecalciferol) at your pharmacy. While most multivitamins or calcium supplements contain some vitamin D, the amounts can vary, so it’s important to read the labels carefully to ensure you are getting the correct dosage.
At Midhurst Pharmasave, our pharmacists can help choose a supplement that’s right for you to keep your bones healthy and strong this winter and all year-round.
