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 Calcium Magnesium & Vitamin D3 With Whole Food Fruits & Vegetables helps bridge this nutrient gap, providing absorbable forms of calcium, magnesium, vitamin D3, super fruits and vegetables in two yummy animal-shaped chewables. 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.
Calcium (macromineral) is the most abundant mineral in the body found primarily in the teeth and bones, supporting their maintenance and growth by making them dense and strong. A small amount of calcium is present in blood plasma (1%) and other body fluids, where it influences muscle contraction, nutrient passage through cells, nerve transmission and blood clotting. Dietary sources high in calcium include milk, cheese, fortified cereals and green leafy vegetables.
Magnesium (macromineral) helps maintain muscles, nerves, bones, and teeth and is essential for carbohydrate and protein metabolism, cell reproduction, and smooth muscle action, including heart muscle tone. Magnesium is required for cellular metabolism and energy production. It also facilitates absorption of calcium and potassium and the processing of vitamin D. Dietary sources high in magnesium include milk, cheese, green leafy vegetables, yogurt, grains, apples, bananas and wheat bran.
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 two animal-shaped chewables once daily or as directed by a healthcare practitioner. CAUTION: To be chewed only. Not intended to be swallowed whole. Store in a cool, dry place, tightly sealed.
