American Academy of Pediatricians Recommendations—In 2008 the AAP doubled the daily recommended intake of vitamin D for children and infants to 400 IU. The AAP also recommended Vitamin D liquid drop supplementation for breastfeeding infants and children who drink less than a quart of milk per day.*
D3 has Higher Bioavailibility than D2—Several studies show that the natural form of liquid Vitamin D3 outperforms D2 in long-term Vitamin D levels and bioavailability. This is particularly true as we age and our ability to metabolize D2 is dramatically reduced. Vitamin D3 metabolism remains unaffected by age.
Healthy Bones and More—Once, Vitamin D was primarily known as a bone builder because it works with calciumto help keep our bones strong, but emerging research suggests vitamin D may be far more versatile, offering an array of wellness benefits including immune support, cardiovascular protection, and healthy aging.
Winter Months and Sunlight—Our bodies can produce vitamin D from the sun, but you can’t always count on it to supply what your body needs—especially during the winter or when you are wearing sunscreen. In some climates, the winter sun is not useful for vitamin D synthesis for up to 6 months of the year. Even in sunny climates such as Florida, studies have shown that about 40% of the elderly population are vitamin D deficient.
