Nordic Naturals Baby's Vitamin D3 is a dietary supplement that includes vitamin D3 in an amount suitable for newborns and infants up to 12 months of age, enriched with certified, organic virgin olive oil.
The preparation is distinguished by its excellent quality. It was developed according to the guidelines of the American Academy of Pediatrics, meets strict cleanliness standards and is recommended by the prestigious American Pregnancy Association. It is available in the form of a tasteless liquid, and the dropper bottle makes it easy to measure the dose. Just 1 drop is enough to meet the daily requirement of vitamin D in newborns and children up to 12 months of age. The addition of olive oil guarantees optimal absorption.
Vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol), often called "solar vitamin", is a compound that is formed in the human body as a result of skin synthesis during exposure to sunlight. Its structure resembles steroid hormones and has a hormone-like effect. The effect of this vitamin on the body is huge, so you need to take care of its proper supply regardless of age. Deficiencies are especially dangerous for infants and children.
Vitamin D is responsible for the proper course of bone growth and mineralization processes. Plays a key role in regulating calcium-phosphate homeostasis; increases the absorption of calcium and phosphate, influences the formation of osteoclasts. With an insufficient amount of this vitamin, disturbances in the maturation and mineralization of the formed bone tissue and abnormal accumulation of cartilage tissue in the bones of growing children are observed. As a result, skeletal pathologies may appear - rickets in children, osteomalacia in adults.
Vitamin D exerts a great influence on the cells of the immune system. Research shows that it determines the transcriptional activity of nearly 300 genes that are involved in maintaining the normal functions of immune system cells. Its active form, i.e. calcitriol, affects monocytes and macrophages, and in addition promotes the correct ratio of Th1 to Th2 lymphocytes. It is believed that the risk of autoimmune diseases increases with vitamin D deficiency.
To sum up, Nordic Naturals Baby's Vitamin D3 is a high-quality preparation that effectively replenishes the level of vitamin D3 in the youngest.
Be especially careful when administering the supplement. Do not put the dropper in the mouth of a child or drip the liquid directly into the mouth of a child. The measured drop should be placed on the nipple or directly on the nipple if the baby is breastfed. In the case of older children, vitamin D3 can be mixed with food or drink, or given on a spoon.
1 drop of the preparation contains the optimal dose for healthy infants fed with natural food. If we decide to give the supplement to older children who are already eating solid foods, including those naturally rich in vitamin D (liver, fish, eggs), the dose should be discussed with the doctor.
Nordic Naturals is a company established in 1995. Its beginnings were characterised by a smaller range of products limited solely to fish oil; these days, there is a much wider range of health-enhancing dietary supplements offered by the company. The founder of the company is a Norwegian Joar Opheim, who started Nordic Naturals in response to the low quality of products with fish oil available at that time.
Products of this brand are given the Friend of the Sea certificate, which guarantees that the fish oil is obtained from environmentally friendly, responsibly managed sources. Preparations offered by this company are also thoroughly tested in terms of purity.
