Why is Vitamin D important? Here is some information from the sponsor...
New research has revealed that as many as 50% of Americans are not getting enough vitamin D. It is very difficult to get enough from diet alone unless you eat a lot of fish such as salmon, sardines, mackerel or herring or take cod liver oil. Vitamin D plays many crucial roles in our bodies: it helps promote calcium absorption for bone and teeth health and helps regulate white blood cells for immune system support. Absorbing enough vitamin D from sun alone may be difficult especially if you have darker skin, are older, live in a northern climate, wear sunscreen, work or stay indoors, are obese, or have trouble absorbing fats. People who have a healthy lifestyle, but avoid or limit their dairy intake (such as vegetarians) may also not be getting enough vitamin D.
- A study reported on March 16 at the American Heart Association's annual meeting showed that teens with high intakes of vitamin D may have lower overall body fat and lower amounts of abdominal fat.
- The American Academy of Pediatrics raised the Recommended Daily Intake for children from 200 to 400 units in November.
-In December, The American Dermatology Association issued a position statement recommending fortified foods and supplements as the preferred vitamin D source, instead of unprotected sun exposure.
-A study conducted at the University of Southern California showed a correlation between low vitamin D levels and stunted growth and weight gain in girls.
My two sons and I have been taking Wellesse Liquid Vitamin D3 for the past two weeks and I think it is an excellent product. I found Wellesse super easy to give to my kids- my boys are 5 and almost 7 and I just put their daily dose in their juice and they never even noticed. Not once. Which is perfect for me! I found the flavour not bad but I also preferred to mix it with juice. One bottle (16 fl oz) is enough for a 48 day supply for one adult which makes Wellesse a great deal at under $10 per bottle!
