Colief Vitamin D3 Drops
The sunshine vitamin for immune support
Vitamin D contributes to the normal growth and development of bones in children and the maintenance of bone growth in adults. It also helps maintain normal immune system function. Vitamin D can be absorbed via food intake or can be formed in the skin under the influence of sunlight. Nevertheless, a deficiency is possible and in many cases a supplement of vitamin D is required.
Top tips on getting enough vitamin D:
- Ensure you and your children spend some time outside each day during the summer months before applying sunscreen. Sunscreen should be used to prevent sunburn.
- Some foods in the UK and Ireland are fortified with vitamin D, including some yogurts, some breakfast cereals and some breads. Try to incorporate these into your diet and eat oily fish once or twice a week.
- Take a daily supplement of 10 micrograms (400IU) and look out for the preferred form of vitamin D3
Vitamin D is important for bone strength and development so is particularly important for babies and children. Topping up your child’s vitamin D levels protects them from the more serious effects of deficiency, such as the childhood bone disorder rickets.
The latest government advice in the UK is that infants should begin taking a vitamin D supplement from birth, and pregnant and breastfeeding women, as well as infants and children, are at particular risk.
Suitable for all the family, Colief® Vitamin D3 Drops is a food supplement rich in vitamin D3 and the ideal solution for providing the required dose of vitamin D3. The drops do not contain flavourings, added sugar, preservatives or colourant.
