Naturally sweetened vitamin D3 gummies for growing bodies
Children need vitamin D for normal growth and development, but they don’t always get adequate amounts. Vitamin D3 is formed in the skin by sunlight, but the skin cannot make enough during northern winters and may be limited on summer days when clothing or sunscreen covers the skin.
Research shows that the “sunshine vitamin” is important for calcium and phosphorus absorption and for building healthy teeth and bones.* It also plays a critical role in development of the cardiovascular, immune, and nervous systems.* The amount of vitamin D3 recommended for children and adolescents was recently doubled to 400 IU by the American Academy of Pediatrics. Only vitamin D3 (also called cholecalciferol) is the same as the form made by the skin on a sunny day.
Treehouse Vitamin D3 Gummies are an easy way to give your children an age-appropriate dose of this important nutrient and support their development and long-term health.* They come in delicious, naturally sweetened fruit flavors that kids will enjoy. They contain no high fructose corn syrup or aspartame, and are free from hydrogenated oils and common food allergens such as gluten, wheat, and dairy. For kids 3 years and older.

Research in brief
Vitamin D sufficiency has been linked to overall health in children (Litonjua, 2012; Brehm et al., 2010). New research suggests that vitamin D plays a role in maintaining healthy immunity and healthy blood sugar metabolism. (Wagner et al., 2008).
Not all forms of vitamin D have been shown to support human health. Only vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol) is the natural form produced in the skin on a sunny day (Heaney, 2008).
The American Academy of Pediatrics recently increased their recommendation for vitamin D3 to a minimum daily intake of 400 IU for all children and adolescents (Wagner et al., 2008). This new dosage has been shown to be safe for children (Pappa et al., 2012).
