Helps in the development and maintenance of bones and teeth.
Vitamin D is produced naturally in the body when our skin is exposed to strong sunlight. However, in the northern hemisphere, this type of light is not available during much of the year, therefore Canadians are at a greater risk of deficiency or sub-optimal levels. Maintaining adequate vitamin D levels is particularly important in children as growing bodies need it for the proper absorption of calcium and its retention in the bones.
The latest research on vitamin D focuses on the additional benefits it provides to children. Inadequate vitamin D levels can make the gut more prone to colonization by pathogenic bacteria and have been linked to incidence of childhood allergies and asthma and with an increased risk of developing chronic conditions later in life, including some types of auto-immune diseases. Vitamin D is recommended for children of all ages to help build strong bones and teeth.
