Natural Beauty Salon: Vitamin D Booster

Natural Beauty Salon: Vitamin D Booster


Vitamin D has been spoken about more often in recent years, most noticeably during the current pandemic, with it being promoted as a preventative measure against the virus that causes Covid-19. However, this vital Vitamin is much more than this, which is why Natural Beauty Salon has delved deeper into this hero Vitamin to discover how our Vitamin D injections can help you maintain and further boost your health for optimum wellness.


What is Vitamin D?

Vitamin D is already well known for helping our bodies absorb and retain calcium, as well as phosphorus, vital for maintaining healthy bones and teeth. But this fat-soluble Vitamin goes further by helping protect against an assortment of diseases and conditions, as well as helping to control infections and reduce inflammation.


Vitamin D comes in two forms; D2 and D3. When exposed to UV light, plants produce Vitamin D2, with mushrooms being a good food source. Vitamin D3 is the biologically active form our bodies create, and effective food sources will be animal products such as oily fish, eggs and liver. Our bodies also synthesise Vitamin D3 through UV sunlight hitting the skin, which is why we’re more likely to have lower levels during the winter months.


Vitamin D Deficiency

There are several reasons why someone may be deficient in Vitamin D, but the most common causes include:

  • Age – as we get older, the skin’s ability to make Vitamin D decreases
  • Mobility – people who are housebound or don’t regularly go outside aren’t exposed to enough sunlight
  • Seasons – Vitamin D naturally drops during the winter, with levels peaking in September and at their lowest in March
  • Skin colour – darker coloured skin is less able to make Vitamin D
  • Weight loss surgery – surgeries reducing stomach, small intestines make it difficult to consume sufficient quantities of nutrients
  • Obesity – fat cells keep Vitamin D isolated, restricting its release into the body
  • Kidney and liver disease reduces the enzyme needed to change Vitamin D into our body’s useable form
  • Cystic fibrosis, Crohn’s disease, and Celiac disease restrict the intestines from absorbing enough Vitamin D through tablet supplements
  • Medications – several medicines can lower Vitamin D levels, such as laxatives, steroids, cholesterol-lowering drugs, seizure control drugs and others


Those who experience Vitamin D deficiency can typically expect it to come on gradually, building up over time, with symptoms also varying from person to person, meaning you may only experience some of the most common symptoms to watch for, including:

  • Fatigue
  • Mood changes and depression
  • Bone pain
  • Muscle weakness, aches and cramps
  • Bone loss
  • Hair loss
  • General unwell feeling
  • Sickness
  • Loss of appetite
  • Regular infections
  • High blood pressure
  • Weight gain
  • Impaired wound healing
  • Immune


Benefits of Injectable Vitamin D

Vitamin D has been positively linked to a wide range of illnesses and conditions, making it an essential nutrient to maintain in our bodies. With varying reasons causing Vitamin D levels to deplete including age, skin colour, exposure to the sun, as well as medications and illnesses, receiving a regularly injectible Vitamin D shot is super beneficial to keeping our bodies in optimum health:


  • Healthy bones and teeth in adults and children
  • Reduces the risk of influenza and other respiratory viruses, including pneumonia and Covid-19
  • Reduces depression
  • Promotes a healthy pregnancy
  • Supports the health of the immune, brain and nervous systems
  • Helps regulate insulin levels, supporting diabetes
  • Support lung function and cardiovascular health
  • Higher Vitamin D levels at cancer diagnosis have been linked to longer survival in patients


Natural Beauty Vitamin D Injectibles

Our Vitamin D immune booster injections is a treatment plan designed for general health and wellness, not to specifically treat a deficiency in the Vitamin. We generally recommend the following treatment plan for our Vitamin D injectibles:


  • Vitamin D3: 1ml administered once per week for six weeks followed by a 1ml maintenance dose every six weeks*
  • Vitamin D2: 1ml administered once every 3 – 6 months


*Our Vitamin D3 treatment plan can be less to suit your budget or time; results will simply take longer to achieve.


Our Vitamin D booster can also be combined with our B-Complex, B12, Vitamin C and Biotin injections for additional overall wellness and health. So if you work or live locally to our Eastcote salon or the surrounding areas, such as Pinner or Ruislip, come in and see us and find out how quickly you can benefit from our Vitamin D booster injectibles.
