This product is Practitioner Grade. Consult your health professional before use. Alternatively, contact Medlab practitioners for advice at Virtual consultations for 20 minutes can be booked free of charge.


Vitamin D3:

  • Essential for optimal immune function.
  • Anti-inflammatory.
  • Maintains bone health.
  • Helps calcium absorption.
  • Supports lung health.
  • Promotes healthy respiratory function.
  • Suitable for groups at increased risk of vitamin D3 deficiency.

What is NanoCelle?

NanoCelle is a unique delivery technology that is safe, effective and convenient, administered as a spray onto the oro-buccal membrane inside of the cheek.

The vitamin is in a nano-particle size so that it can be directly absorbed into the blood stream. This enables the formulation to be lower dose with higher absorption, in contrast to ingested forms.

NanoCelle has been shown to have a higher absorption rate than tablets, capsules, gel capsules, dermal patches, sublingual (under the tongue) liquid, and intramuscular injections. By avoiding the digestion pathway, this technology is beneficial for those experiencing gastrointestinal or digestion complications.

Directions of Use


Take 2 sprays (300 microlitre) once a day or as directed by your health professional. Spray on the inside of the cheek.



  • Anti-inflammatory/relieve inflammation
  • Maintain/support bone health
  • Helps enhance/promote bone mass/density
  • Vitamin D helps calcium absorption (or words of like intent) and a diet deficient in calcium can lead to osteoporosis in later life
  • Maintain/support healthy immune system function
  • Helps prevent dietary Vitamin D3 deficiency
  • Maintain/support lung health
  • Maintain/support healthy mucous membranes/mucous tissue of the respiratory tract



Always read the label. Follow the directions for use. Vitamin supplements should not replace a balanced diet. Contains potassium sorbate.

Side Effects

Vitamin D3 has a low risk of side-effects when taken as directed.


We advise NanoCelle™ D3 should not be given to patients currently taking:

  • Calcitriol medications
  • Steroid medication such as prednisone
  • Weight loss medication Orlistat
  • Cholesterol lowering medications such as Cholestyramine and Thiazide diuretics
  • Seizure medications such as Phenobarbital and Dilantin

This study is a Vitamin D3 hormone blood level absorption study, performed in healthy adult volunteers.<\/p>\n\n

Vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin that is naturally present in very few foods, added to others, and available as a dietary supplement. It is also produced endogenously when ultraviolet rays from sunlight strike the skin and trigger vitamin D synthesis. Vitamin D is obtained from sun exposure, food, and supplements are biologically inert and must undergo two hydroxylations in the body for activation. <\/p>\n\n

Vitamin D promotes calcium absorption in the gut and maintains adequate serum calcium and phosphate concentrations to enable normal mineralization of bone and to prevent hypocalcemic tetany. It is also needed for bone growth and bone remodelling by osteoblasts and osteoclasts<\/p>\n\n

Effects of Vitamin D on Gut Microbiota Composition

Vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin and is expressed in the gastrointestinal tract, where it carries out gene expression. Recent evidence has demonstrated that vitamin D can modify the composition of the gut microbiota by down regulating inflammation, up-regulating innate immunity and improving intestinal barrier function
