Nordic Naturals Vitamin D3 Gummies Kids is a dietary supplement that contains vitamin D3 in an amount suitable for children. The preparation is friendly to small consumers – it is available in the form of tasty watermelon gummies.
Vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol) is one of the forms of vitamin D found in animals. It shows a pleiotropic effect and is essential for the proper functioning of the human body. The correct level of this vitamin must be ensured from the first days of life until death. Vitamin D3 deficiency is especially dangerous for children and may have severe irreversible health consequences.
Strong bones and teeth: Vitamin D's most important role is to regulate the calcium-phosphate metabolism. This is especially important for tissues and organs that are particularly rich in these elements, i.e., skeleton and teeth. In children, vitamin D deficiency results in impaired mineralization and a reduction in bone mass, whereas in more severe cases leads to rickets. In adolescents and adults, in turn, it causes osteomalacia and osteoporosis. Moreover, the deficiency of this vitamin, regardless of age, increases the tendency to bone fractures and may cause bone and joint pain. The teeth are also affected, becoming weakened, decalcified, and more prone to caries.
Increased immunity: Vitamin D has a clinically proven immunomodulatory effect.
Calcitriol, which is the active form of vitamin D3, supports the multiplication and differentiation of cells belonging to the immune system. Moreover, it advantageously modulates the expression of lymphocytes and promotes the maintenance of the correct ratio of Th1 to Th2 lymphocytes. Research shows that low vitamin D levels in the body correlate with an increased risk of autoimmune disorders and immune-related diseases.
Proper functioning of the nervous system: one of the most important, although less known, activities of vitamin D is its participation in the development and maintenance of the proper functions of the nervous system. This vitamin has been proven to have neuroprotective properties. Study results suggest that its deficiency may lead to an increased risk of diseases of the central nervous system, including schizophrenia and multiple sclerosis.
To sum up, Nordic Naturals Vitamin D3 Gummies Kids is a safe dose of vitamin D3 for children, closed in an attractive form of fruit jellies. It effectively replenishes vitamin D3 deficiency and is a vital element in the prevention of rickets.
Supplementation should be considered especially in children who spend little time outside in the sun and eat too few food products that are a natural source of vitamin D3 (liver, fatty sea fish).
Vitamin D3 is a fat-soluble compound, therefore, the supplement should be given to the child with a meal containing a fat source. You have to make sure that the child does not swallow the jelly, but chews it thoroughly. This should not be a problem for an average four-year-old.
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.
