The UK Department of Health highlights all children under 3 years old as at “at risk” group for vitamin D deficiency and recommend that they should be given a daily vitamin D supplement.

How do BetterYou intraoral sprays work?
Each spray produces a plume of micro-droplets that permeate the soft-tissue of the inner cheek, delivering essential nutrients into the rich vein system below. Micro-emulsified to product optimal droplet size and plume delivery, ensuring effective and convenient absorption.
Carefully spray into your child’s mouth or on the inside of the cheek. Give your child one daily spray or as recommended by your healthcare practitioner.

Coconut oil, cholecalciferol (vitamin D3).
No artificial colours or flavours.
The source of vitamin D3 is Lanolin. This has been sourced from the wool of sheep living in Australia. The D3 is completely extracted from the Lanolin and while it is suitable for vegetarians (approved by the vegetarian society) it may not be suitable for those wishing to follow a strict vegan diet.
BetterYou takes pride in its unique approach to absorption, delivery and stability testing and proudly use natural, food-state, food-sourced ingredients wherever possible.
Proudly British made. Never tested on animals.
Yes. The DLuxInfant has been especially formulated to provide 400iu (10µg), the Government recommended dose, in a pure oil based solution.

Yes. All the DLux sprays are suitable for vegetarians and are officially approved by the Vegetarian Society. They are also suitable for those following a coeliac or diabetic diet.
The oral spray method also means that they are suitable for those with digestive problems.
DLuxInfant has 100 sprays per bottle and so if you are using one spray per day it will last 100 days.
The key difference is the dosage level per spray, the different colours are not related to flavours.
DLuxInfant delivers 400IU (10µg) per spray and is unflavoured.
DLuxJunior delivers 400IU (10µg) per spray and has a natural peppermint flavour.
DLux1000 delivers 1000IU (25µg) per spray and has a natural peppermint flavour.
DLux3000 delivers 3000IU (75µg) per spray and has a natural peppermint flavour.
DLuxPregnancy delivers 1000IU (25µg) of vitamin D per dose (5 sprays) along with the RDA of B1, B6 and Folic Acid and has a natural peach and mango flavour.
We recommend a dosage level based on body weight and advise supplementation of 1000IU of vitamin D per 25kg of body weight.
This usually equates to one spray of DLux3000 per day for adults living in the UK. For children our DLuxInfant and DLuxJunior products provide ideal daily dosage levels.
The vitamin D3 contained in our DLux sprays is sourced from Lanolin, which is the wool from a sheep. There is no Lanolin found within the product but the process of extracting the D3 from the wool makes this particular product not suitable for those on a vegan diet. We take our product ingredients very seriously and are always researching to find new ways of creating products which are as universally acceptable as possible.
No. The oral spray delivery mechanism avoids processing by the digestive system, meaning it can be taken at any time of day with or without food. The active ingredients are delivered directly into the bloodstream via the mucosal membranes in the mouth.
The spray can be taken at any time of day, the key is to make it part of your daily routine.
Many people find it is easiest to take it first thing in the morning as part of their morning routine, but as the sprays are easy to use, portable and don’t need to be taken with food or a drink, they can be used any time of day.
The DLux oral spray range has been formulated to be absorbed through the mucosal membrane within the mouth. We have conducted clinical trials with Cardiff University and found that the most effective area for absorption to be on the inside of the cheek. Our formula within our oral sprays have therefore been specifically made to provide optimal and guaranteed, immediate absorption in this area.
Spraying DLux onto your food or into a drink would mean it is processed by the digestive system rather than going through the mucosal membranes in the mouth.
