Pick up a free pack of Vitamin D tablets from your Asda Pharmacy

To help ensure you and your children get the vitamins you need, we’re giving away free Vitamin D chewable tablets in all Asda Pharmacies.

Vitamin D

Vitamin D is essential to allow absorption of calcium into the body – we naturally get this from sunlight, but there are many people in the UK who do not get as much sunlight as they need, especially over the winter months.

A daily dose is recommended for children between six months and five years of age to prevent Vitamin D deficiency – and associated diseases such as rickets – throughout their development. A supplement of Vitamin D is also recommended for pregnant and breastfeeding women as they need more, and the elderly whose skin make less Vitamin D.

The one month (30 tablets) pack will be available in each of our 225 Asda pharmacies nationwide. Specially formulated for children over three years, the chewable tablets come in a great-tasting raspberry flavour.

Visit your local Asda Pharmacy to find out more. For more information about the benefits of taking Vitamin D speak to your Asda pharmacist.

One pack per customer. Subject to availability.
