Stexerol D3 ®

Difficult to get in winter, vitamin D is an absolute essential for maintaining health. Those of us living in dark climates know how difficult it is to get the sun on our skin for much of the year, which likely leads to vitamin D deficiencies. That’s where Stexerol D3 can help.

Sunshine pill through your letterbox

Maintaining your levels of vitamin D is easy, as long as you remember to take it. It’s one of those habits that’s easy to form, but just as easy to lose. That’s why subscribing to EveAdam can help. Set your own delivery schedule, and get Sterexol on repeat, meaning you’ll never run out again.

You only need to fill in an online questionnaire and one of our UK registered clinicians will be able to offer you a range of prescription treatments that are suitable for you.

What is Stexerol D3 and why is it called the sunshine pill?

Stexerol D3 is a vitamin D supplement or treatment (more on the differences between those later). We usually get most of our vitamin D from the sun, but some people don’t get enough exposure to it all year round, and should take a vitamin D supplement.

So while the sun may not always shine on your skin, you can glow with its benefits from the inside.

Can I buy Stexerol D3 over the counter?

No, for Stexerol D3, all products are prescription only. The use of stronger dose tablets will also need to be monitored during treatment, which usually lasts for several weeks.

Buying vitamin D online with an EveAdam subscription, whether as a treatment or maintenance supplement, is super convenient.

What benefits does Stexerol D3 have?

As well as maintaining levels of vitamin D to prevent them from getting too low, high doses of Stexerol D3 also treat serious conditions, such as osteoporosis.

As vitamin D is needed to maintain healthy bones, muscles and teeth, severe deficiencies can cause major problems, which is why prevention is always best.
