Vitamin D3

Cholecalciferol, or Vitamin D3, can be taken orally or given as an intramuscular injection to boost levels of this vitally important nutrient, which acts more like a hormone in the body. Each injection provides 100,000 units of D3 and can be given monthly for 4 to 6 months for very low levels, or as a single dose to boost immunity or help you prevent or recover from colds and flu. Because it is very powerful, a low serum vitamin D needs to be documented prior to getting a series of these, and serum calcium needs to be monitored periodically. Because it increases absorption of calcium, it can increase the risk of kidney stones in those people with a history of this painful condition!
