Do you also get too little vitamin D? Vitamin D3 deficiency is a widespread problem in Europe. According to studies, less than 20 per cent of the population in northern Europe suffers from vitamin D3 deficiency. Especially adolescents, young adults and the elderly are deficient in this important vitamin. Symptoms of a deficiency include fatigue and pain and a higher risk of osteoporosis and other diseases.
With the cerascreen®️ Vitamin D monitoring test kit, you receive not one but two vitamin D tests, which determine the concentration of 25-OH vitamin D (vitamin D3) in your blood. This allows you to determine whether you have a vitamin D deficiency and specifically combat it with the help of the enclosed vitamin D supplement recommended by our experts. You can choose from three of our best vitamin D supplements to complement your test.
If you find out you are deficient in vitamin D, experts usually recommend taking another vitamin D test a few months after treatment through supplementation – which is why we have gone ahead and added another test in this set. This way, you can ensure you stay on track with your vitamin D levels.

Vitamin D is a year-round issue
Due to diet and lack of sunlight, the vitamin D concentration in many people is often less than 31 nanogrammes per millilitre (ng/ml) and thus below the minimum concentration recommended by doctors. On the other hand, experts in orthomolecular medicine recommend a healthy level of between 40 and 60 nanogrammes per millilitre as the target for optimal and preventive health.
You should check your vitamin D level several times a year!
Quickly and easily determine if and to what extent you lack the essential vitamin D!
The cerascreen Vitamin D Test makes determining your vitamin D levels fast and easy. You send a few drops of blood from your fingertip to our specialised laboratory, where we take care of the professional lab analysis. Based on the test results, our nutrition experts will determine your personal vitamin D supplementation plan.
Vitamin D is generally considered a feel-good vitamin and supports more than 30 important bodily functions. But since vitamin D is primarily produced by direct exposure to sunshine, the vast majority of people are not sufficiently supplied with vitamin D! Additionally, many people have a nutritional condition that prevents them from absorbing and storing vitamin D properly.
