If children grew up in the rainforest, they’d get most of the nutrients for proper bone health and density from whole foods like fruits, vegetables, whole grains and fish. Nutrients that are often missing from today’s diets. Bluebonnet Super Earth Rainforest Animalz Vitamin D3 400 IU helps bridge this nutrient gap, providing vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol), super fruits and vegetables in one yummy chewable tablet. EarthSweet is a nourishing blend of fruit juice concentrates (wild blueberry, cranberry, prune, cherry, strawberry, raspberry and bilberry fruits, grape seed, raspberry seed) and natural cane crystals.
Vitamin D is a fat-soluble nutrient that requires conversion in the liver and kidneys to form the physiologically active form of vitamin D, calcitriol. Active vitamin D functions in the body as a hormone; however, its function to increase calcium absorption, which helps form and maintain healthy bones and teeth, is one of the most significant. The other physiological functions of vitamin D include maintenance of normal blood levels of calcium and phosphorus.
There are two forms of vitamin D: D2 and D3. Vitamin D2 (ergocalciferol) is found in yeast and plants that have been exposed to ultraviolet light. Vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol), however, is found in animal products and is also made in the body when sunlight triggers its synthesis in the skin.
As a dietary supplement for children three years of age and older, take one chewable tablet daily or as directed by a healthcare practitioner.
