Vitamin D Gummies provide 1,000 IU of vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol) per gummy and are suitable for ages 3 and up as a delicious option to help meet daily vitamin D requirements. The vitamin D receptor is present in nearly all human cells, demonstrating the important role of vitamin D in supporting good health.1 While it is best recognized for its ability to promote peak bone mass and maintain bone health in the elderly, vitamin D also contributes to healthy immune systems.2 In fact, Vitamin D has been found to support the function of both the innate and adaptive immune system.3 Despite its importance to many physiological functions, many Canadians have inadequate levels of vitamin D.4 This may result from insufficient sun exposure, wearing covering clothes, limited consumption of vitamin D-containing foods, dark skin colour, older age, and low intake of vitamin D supplements.5 Numerous studies have concluded that vitamin D3 is more effective than vitamin D2 at improving vitamin D status.6,7 Vitamin D Gummies are delicious, natural raspberry-flavoured gummies with no artificial flavours or colours, and are low in sugar. With just one gummy daily, this formula helps prevent vitamin D deficiency and supports optimal bone and immune health. Vitamin D Gummies are ideal for anyone 3 years and older who have difficulty or dislike swallowing capsules.
