Vitamin D “the sunshine vitamin” has received quite a bit of attention over the last few years. Recently, the recommended amounts for Vitamin D increased for people of all ages. This is of great concern as Vitamin D is not found in many foods and virtually all Canadians (and Americans) are deficient.
Vitamin D is a nutrient that helps your body function, ward off disease and absorb calcium. Calcium and vitamin D work together to help you maintain healthy bones and teeth. Vitamin D also helps your muscles, nerves and immune system work properly. Recent research has shown that vitamin D may be linked to lowering the risk of diseases such as multiple sclerosis and some cancers.
When sun exposure presents a health risk to sensitive skin, how can your growing baby obtain the Vitamin D necessary to build strong bones and teeth. Health Canada and the Canadian Paediatric Society agree that supplementation is the safest, most effective way for breastfed babies to receive this important nutrient. The current recommendation is 400 IU daily from birth for babies in temperate regions, and 800 IU daily for babies north of 55 degrees latitude (that includes almost all of Canada) .
Vegetarian Vitamin D drops comes with a convenient, easy-to-use dropper that precisely dispenses 400 IU of pure Vitamin D every time. The droplets can be applied directly to a pacifier or nipple, or placed on your finger and rubbed inside your baby’s cheek. For older babies and toddlers, add the droplets to food or drinks.
