• The sun’s ultraviolet B (UVB) rays shine on cholesterol in skin cells, providing the synergy to produce vitamin D. This form of vitamin D (cholecalciferol) is synthesized in the skin through metabolism. in the liver and kidneys to develop into substances that continue to nourish and develop calcium.

. Signs of vitamin D deficiency in children
Vitamin D is a very important vitamin for the development of childhood landmarks.
Signs of calcium and vitamin D3 deficiency are often difficult to identify without a specific blood test. But you can pay special attention through a few external manifestations of the baby to partly identify whether the child’s body lacks vitamin D3 nutrients or not:
– Soft skulls: In newborn babies, when the babies are born, the skull bone is not really complete, they are not seamlessly connected, there still exist a few joints that create the sunken points called the fontanelle.

For normal babies, they only sweat a little if the weather is hot, but if the mother sees that her child is sweating too much, she should let her see the doctor to know exactly the current health status of the child like that. Come on. If your baby lacks vitamin D3, the mother can easily supplement, so it is necessary to detect early to avoid many negative complications later.

Children lacking vitamin D often suffer from rickets, abnormally growing bones, deformed bones such as spine arched bones, bent legs.
Babies with slow growth: For babies with lack of nutrients, calcium is often much slower to develop than normal, you can track the child’s developmental milestones through each stage.

. Vitamin D and immunity
Vitamin D has a very important function. In addition to the homeostasis and calcium functions include the modulation (control) of immune responses. Cells of the immune system are able to synthesize and respond to vitamin D, which in turn may help fight infections and modulate allergic responses.
Based on the results of a study conducted in children and adolescents in Vietnam, vitamin D supplementation reduced the risk of respiratory viral infections by 24%, not due to influenza alone, demonstrating the potential role of it in reducing respiratory tract viral diseases.
Vitamin D supplementation can help reduce the risk of allergies and reduce ear infections, which are common in children
How to take Vitamin D with Infant-D
There are many natural food sources of vitamin D (D2 & D3), including oily fish (e.g. salmon, mackerel), cod liver oil, organ meats and egg yolks. However, these forms are not particularly child-friendly and eating well regularly can be difficult.
Infant-D is a special formula that contains Vitamins in sunlight, made in Australia and specifically designed to provide the right Vitamin D that is:
+ Unique twist-opening formula
+ Allows administration aseptic treatment
+ 400 IU – correct dose for newborn babies
Unlike conventional vitamin D liquid formulas. These products often use the form of a large bottle extract to the baby’s mouth, which makes in some cases the baby more vulnerable and increases the risk of infection due to contamination. The Infant-D spiral-open infant formula was developed to bridge this critical gap with most of the vitamin D liquid formulations available to children. Helix open capsules also ensure the correct dose of Vitamin D is taken each time and do not require measurement and monitoring unlike dropper based products.
And this helps children:
+ Helps reduce the risk of recurrence of lower respiratory tract infections
+ Reduces the risk of allergies
+ Reduces the risk of relapsing middle ear infections
+ Infrand D helps regulate blood calcium and supports immune system
