What is InVita D3 50 000 used for?
– Treatment of vitamin D3 deficiency

I was told today I am very low in vitamin D and iron. This was the results from my bloods I had done when my leg became swollen due to a cyst growing at the back of my left knee. You can read here how I healed without taking any medication.

As a black person living in non sunny England its understandable I would be low. But the levels the doctor shared was low. I don’t personally know the low or high numbers of vitamin levels in my body. So I have to take his word for it right.

He has prescribed this invita d3 50 000 iu oral solution that I will or should take for 3 months. I asked what was in this liquid and he did not know. He said he will look at the manufactures website. Not helpful coming from the doctor who has prescribed this. However they are not to know all the chemical compounds of all medications they prescribe to patients.

He sent me the ingredients of what’s in it:

invita d3 50 000 iu oral solution ingredients:
Tocopherol acetate
Polyglyceryl oleate (E475)
Olive oil
Sweet orange peel oil

The first 2 ingredients will need researching and the last 2 I can accept.

Now before I research the above I need to know the InVita D3 50 000 side effects. This is very important to me if I am to put something new into my body.

Possible side effects may include:

Uncommon (affects less than 1 in 100 people)
• Too much calcium in your blood (hypercalcaemia)
• Too much calcium in your urine (hypercalciuria)

Rare (affects less than 1 in 1000 people)
• Skin rash
• Itching
• Hives

Back to the 2 first ingredients in the list:

What’s Tocopherol acetate?

Alpha-tocopheryl acetate (ATA) is a specific form of vitamin E that’s often found in skin care products and dietary supplements. It’s also known as tocopheryl acetate, tocopherol acetate, or vitamin E acetate. Vitamin E is known for its antioxidant properties.

Is tocopherol acetate natural?
D-alpha tocopherol or tocopheryl acetate distinguishes a naturally derived supplement

What’s Polyglyceryl oleate (E475)
This was a hard one to find
E 475: Polyglycerol esters of fatty acids … Origin: Combination of polyglycerol and natural fats. Normal fat consists of glycerol and fatty acids.

Now I also found that:
E475 may or may not be vegan. Both Fatty Acids and Glycerol can have plant or animal sources.

So now I need to find out if the Polyglyceryl oleate (E475) used in this invita d3 50 000 iu oral solution is plant based. So I will contact my doctor to see if he can find out as I have tried online.

Update: I found that it is vegetable based

What is the source of E475?
According to the EFSA CONTAM Panel, refined vegetable oil, which can be used for manufacturing of PEFA (E 475), is the only identified source of glycidyl esters of fatty acids (EFSA CONTAM Panel, 2016).20 Dec 2017

A good question is how to know the vitamin D3 increase is working?

Effects of vitamin D,  I should feel better and healthier. Vitamin D deficiency symptoms, such as fatigue, weakness, and joint pain, start to disappear.

Actually I have been feeling a little tired & energy drained but as I was doing a water fast & my body was healing from my leg I had it down to that.

I wonder if my vitamin D levels  and iron levels were up, would I have felt so energy drained. I have fasted before and never felt the way i did through this fast.


That’s it for now.

I Have started to take the medication and will update on how I get on.
