Kirkman® now offers tasty, easy-to-take, chewable vitamin D-3 tablets. Recent scientific studies have shown stunning results that expand the immunity benefits of vitamin D-3. Kirkman® has followed this emerging science to offer these supplements in the most effective formulations and doses. This chewable product was specially formulated for easy compliance and administration.
It is well known and established that vitamin D-3 is necessary for supporting strong bones and teeth and for the proper absorption of certain minerals. Now, research is indicating that this nutrient is important for a lot of other critical body functions, including the support of a well-functioning immune system.
Our best source of vitamin D has always been sunshine; however, the use of sunscreen can limit the amount of vitamin D actually absorbed from the sun. Cloudy, rainy climates also add limitations. Cod liver oil can also be a good source, though you have to read the label to be sure. All cod liver oils are not the same.
Individuals who do not get sufficient sun exposure and do not take cod liver oil have to resort to fortified foods for their vitamin D intake. Cereals and dairy products are fortified adequately, but individuals on a GF/CF diet will miss out on much of that fortification. Check your food labels to determine whether they contain vitamin D.
Recent research is now suggesting that many children and adults are not getting enough vitamin D for maintaining good health. In 2008, the American Academy of Pediatrics doubled the amount of Vitamin D it recommended for infants, children and adolescents to 400 IUs daily.
Much has been written about Vitamin D recently. Kirkman® recommends looking up this recent research on the Internet so you can determine if you and your family may need to supplement with additional vitamin D.
In addition to our Vitamin D-3 Chewable Tablets 1000 IU, Kirkman® offers hypoallergenic Vitamin D-3 (cholecalciferol) capsules in 400 IU, 1000 IU and 2000 IU capsules. The 100% recommended daily value for this nutrient is 400 IU, though scientific evidence is mounting that many individuals need more than that.
Check with your physician to determine if your family is getting adequate vitamin D supplementation. A lab test is available to check your levels.
