Vitamin D helps the body maintain healthy levels of calcium and phosphorus. Calcium can only be absorbed by the body when vitamin D is present. Vitamin D also plays many important roles beyond bone health. Recent scientific evidence suggests that vitamin D plays a vital part in maintaining innate immunity. The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) has recently doubled its recommendation for the minimum amount of vitamin D that children should get daily.

The new guidelines recommend at least 400 international units (IU) daily. Most children don’t drink enough milk to provide adequate levels of vitamin D. The AAP states that the best way to ensure that children receive adequate vitamin D is through supplementation. Vitamin D3 is the form of vitamin D that is produced by our own bodies in response to sunlight, and is considered to be the most bioactive form. One serving of Sunshine Heroes Calcium Plus D3 provides 300 IU of vitamin D3.

Chew up to 3 soft chews per day as a dietary supplement. Chew carefully and thoroughly before swallowing.
