Compare vitamin D supplements with new intelog table

intelog has published a new table summarising key information for vitamin D3 (colecalciferol) preparations.

Colecalciferol (vitamin D3) is the preferred form of vitamin D for treatment, as it is thought to raise vitamin D levels more effectively than ergocalciferol (vitamin D2) and has a longer duration of action. | GETTY IMAGES

The new intelog vitamin D3 supplements table lists the colecalciferol preparations licensed as medicines in the UK. It is designed to help prescribers quickly compare products for the prevention and treatment of vitamin D deficiency and osteoporosis.

Available in the latest print issue of intelog and online, the table provides details of the products' formulations (capsules/soft capsules, tablets or oral solution), colecalciferol doses, licensed indications and age ranges, and suitability for vegans/vegetarians.

Brand names link through to the full intelog entries for more detailed prescribing information on each product.

The table complements the intelog table of calcium and vitamin D supplements for osteoporosis, also available in print and online.
