  • Supports and Maintains Bone and Dental Health
  • Increases Calcium Absorption and Balance
  • Boosts Immune Activity
  • Helps Increase Musculoskeletal Strength

Vitamin D is a steroid vitamin, a group of fat-soluble pro-hormones best known for their role in supporting bone health and aiding in the absorption of calcium and phosphate from the gastrointestinal (GI) tract. It is a key nutrient for the needs of growing children and adolescents. A growing body of research highlights its important role in supporting other body systems, cardiovascular health, musculoskeletal strength, and immune function. It can target over 200 different genes throughout the body. Despite its importance, deficiency and insufficiency of this important nutrient has reached epidemic proportions around the world, in both adults and children. Kid-D Liquid Drops helps growing bodies achieve optimal levels of vitamin D and supports overall health in children. It delivers a targeted amount of vitamin D in an odorless, tasteless liquid that can be added to any beverage.

Suggested Use:

½ dropperful (0.4 ml) per day or as recommended by your health care professional. Can be taken directly on the tongue and swallowed or mixed with the beverage of your choice.

Vitamin D Depletion

While it has long been assumed that the majority of the population achieves adequate levels of vitamin D through exposure to the sun, the biosynthesis of the nutrient is affected by time of day, seasons, location, smog/pollution, clothing, and sunscreen. In addition, those with darker skin require more exposure to the sun to attain adequate levels. These factors all contribute to the insufficiency seen in a growing portion of the population. In addition, it takes about 48 hours for vitamin D to be absorbed from the skin into the body and washing skin during that time period can interfere with absorption into the blood. Inadequate intake or levels of cholesterol can also inhibit the adequate production of the nutrient. Depleted levels of vitamin D may interfere with the development of teeth and bones and cell growth, and contribute to poor regulation of immune and nervous systems.

Cardiometabolic

Vitamin D has repeatedly been found in literature to be associated with improved cardiometabolic health among pediatric populations, as well as adults. A systematic review and meta-analysis of the relationship of serum vitamin D and blood fats in a pediatric population found higher vitamin D levels supported a healthier fat profile.

Bone and Dental Health

Numerous studies have highlighted the importance of vitamin D to maintain healthy bone density. Vitamin D has also been found to be linked to an improvement in bone discomfort and “growing pains.”

Immune Health and Modulation

One of the more profound functions of vitamin D is its ability to modulate immunity. Vitamin D has been shown to boost the immune response by up-regulating specific genes that increase cellular production of natural compounds that protect us against pathogens.
