The subject’s serum Vitamin D levels were estimated before and after treatment of sublingual vitamin D3 60,000IU tablets. 55 volunteers were included in the study. There was statistically significant difference in serum vitamin D3 level before (average 17.64, SD+7.20) and after (average 37.85, SD +7.32) after treatment with Sublingual Vitamin D3(Paired t test, *P value is < 0.0001).
