BetterYou fund ground-breaking vitamin D research with the University of Sheffield

We're delighted to announce a new research partnership with the University of Sheffield, paving the way for a three-year clinical trial looking at the effect of vitamin D supplementation on the quality of life of people with Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS).

Three-phase research

The three-phase PhD will begin in October in partnership with Dr Bernard Corfe and Dr Liz Williams from the University’s Department of Oncology and Metabolism. The trial is designed to look at:

  • The uptake rate of vitamin D delivery – BetterYou Vitamin D3000 spray versus 3000IU tablet 
  • A randomised control trial looking at how supplementing with vitamin D affects quality of life in IBS sufferers
  • A population study comparing vitamin D intakes of IBS sufferers compared to national data.

The new study builds on existing findings by Dr Bernard Corfe, linking vitamin D deficiency to IBS and suggesting that the sunshine vitamin could further impact on quality of life of people with IBS.

Dr Bernard Corfe said: “IBS can have a very significant impact on the life of people diagnosed with it. The potential link between vitamin D intake and IBS symptoms is a new one and we are delighted to be working with BetterYou to investigate the potential to improve the lives and health of people with IBS.”

Leading the way in absorption research

We are proud to work with a world-leading university held in such high regard for its research excellence.

We take pride in our continued absorption research within the field of oral spray delivery. There are few supplement products on the market more stringently researched and tested.
