Vitamin D3 for Babies
Vitamin D3 Baby contains coconut oil and vitamin D3, but no alcohol. It is therefore also suitable for babies and children. The exact ingredients are vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol), medium-chain triglycerides (MCT) from coconut oil (origin: South East Asia) and some vitamin E to protect against oxidation. One bottle of vitamin D3 Baby contains 408’000 IU of vitamin D3. Dosage is easy with the practical dropping pipette. One drop contains 400 IU of vitamin D3.
Vitamin D is produced in the skin with the help of sunlight. However, sunlight is often not sufficient for this. In addition, good sun protection is especially important for the sensitive baby skin. But then the body’s own vitamin D can no longer be produced.
Vitamin D3 Baby should only be used under medical supervision.
400 IU Vitamin D for Babies
The Federal Office of Public Health sees an additional need for vitamin D3 in infants and children up to their 3rd birthday. In the 1st year of life, a requirement of 400 IU per day is assumed, in the 2nd and 3rd year of life then 600 IU per day. This should ensure a sufficient supply of vitamin D through nutrition during this pronounced growth phase, in which good sun protection is important and recommended at the same time.
Difference between Vitamin D and Vitamin D3
Vitamin D3 (Cholecalciferol) is the precursor of vitamin D, which is transformed into the physiologically active Vitamin D in the body. This conversion is not dependent on sunlight.
On the other hand, our body can produce the precursor vitamin D3 itself with the help of sunlight in the skin cells. However, the light intensity and thus the formation of vitamin D3 is influenced by the weather, the position of the sun, the altitude above sea level etc. Everything that gets between the bright sky and our skin has an influence on the body’s own vitamin D3 production. So the intensity of the sun in our latitudes during the winter months is considered too low for the skin to produce enough vitamin D.
Why the Coconut oil?
Vitamin D3 is a fat-soluble substance. It must therefore be taken together with some fat so that it can be absorbed by the body. The coconut oil contained in Vitamin D3 Baby ensures this.
Is Vitamin D3 Baby vegetarian or vegan?
The vitamin D3 contained in vitamin D3 Baby is extracted from wool fat (lanolin) in Germany and purified several times. Our Vitamin D3 Baby is vegetarian.
