Believe it or not, there are a lot of us walking around that don't realize we are deficient in Vitamin D. I was so surprised last year when the results of my son's lab work came back showing his Vitamin D level was so low that he had to be put on prescription level Vitamin D. He took 60,000 IU once weekly until his level was up to where it should be. Our Dr. told me that can be hereditary. He then ordered lab work for my other son who also came back low in Vitamin D, not low enough to go on prescription strength but to add over the counter Vitamin D to his diet.
All of this was so unbelievable to me. They drink plenty of milk, enough that if I could I'd buy a cow! And I could swear I was taught in school that all you needed was to get 15 - 20 minutes of Sun exposure to get enough Vitamin D. I kind of sat there stunned as he increased my intake of Vitamin D too.....
When I think of lack of Vitamin D, I think back to Pirate Days, why I don't know, isn't that when scurvy and rickets were around?
But it is not as uncommon as I thought it was. Very few foods naturally contain Vitamin D.
Thank goodness for Nutrabear! They have made Vitamin D gummy bears which are an excellent source of Vitamin D, with 800 IU per serving. These gummy bears are 100% vegetarian, contain no gluten, gelatin, milk, eggs, peanuts or soy. Vitamin D not only improves your bone and dental health, it helps your body's absorption of calcium, which can help you maintain stronger bones.
These gummies are so good, a much more enjoyable, yummier alternative to taking pills or dry chewables. I wouldn't say their consistency is like gummy bears, but more like a fruit snack. Gummy bears to me are rubbery, these aren't. They are very easy to chew and are a fun and delicious way to get your daily Vitamin D.
They are perfect for adults and children, although you may find your kiddos wanting more....(you will too!)
Nutrabear has carefully chosen each ingredient to help promote a healthy mind and body. All flavors and colors are natural, made in the USA, in a GMP certified facility.
