Radiance Kid's Vitamin D3 chewables are delicious tangy fruit flavoured tablets to support healthy Vitamin D3 levels. Although vitamin D is available in small amounts in foods such as fish liver and eggs, it is predominantly produced in the skin when cholesterol comes into contact with unimpeded sunlight. Widespread sun avoidance, sunblock use, indoor based lifestyles and cover-all cultural dress practices have contributed to what experts are calling a vitamin D deficiency epidemic . Those with dark skin are also at greater risk of vitamin D deficiency . This may have far reaching implications for the health and vitality of our littlies as vitamin D has innumerable roles in the body. 

Vitamin D plays an important role in the growth and maintenance of healthy teeth and bones, supports blood sugar regulation and the healthy function of the nervous system. Vitamin D is also an essential nutrient for competent functioning of the immune system. It helps support a responsive immune system, to promote fast action against ills, chills and unregulated cell division. Vitamin D also supports a balanced immune response; deficiency states are associated with environmental and food allergies, skin conditions and wheezing.

Vitamin D is the sunshine vitamin, predominantly produced in the skin when it is exposed to sunlight. Due to widespread sun avoidance and sunblock use, pollution and a sedentary predominantly indoors lifestyle, recent reports state that many, if not most children are deficient in this sunshine vitamin. This can have devastating effects for the wellbeing of children as vitamin D has wide reaching effects throughout the body.

Calcium metabolism: Vitamin D helps to mineralise the bones by improving calcium and phosphorous absorption in the intestines and promoting parathyroid function. Low vitamin D is associated with bone deformities, growing pains and tooth decay.

Supports competent immune function: Vitamin D activates the front line cells of the immune system, stimulates the production of the antimicrobial compound cathelicidin, whilst attracting other immune cells to the site of infection. In the absence of vitamin D, this process does not happen, stalling the immune response. It is not surprising then that studies have found a link between increased incidence and severity of upper and lower respiratory infections and more serious infections and conditions in children deficient in vitamin D.

Allergies: Low levels of vitamin D are also associated with inapproriate immune responses to environmental and food allergies, which may present as hay-fever, hives, eczema, asthma, food allergies, sinus infections, gastrointestinal upset and behavoural problems. In the case of eczema, low levels of vitamin D correlate with severity and the likelihood of secondary bacterial infections. Corticosteroids commonly used for asthma, eczema and other autoimmune diseases also deplete vitamin D levels.

Blood sugar regulation: New Zealand research suggests that vitamin D is needed for adequate blood sugar control and insulin sensitivity. This may be instrumental knowledge in the multifaceted treatment of childhood obesity and diabetes prevention.

Mood and developmental disorders: Vitamin D is thought to affect proteins in the brain directly involved in learning and memory, motor control, and social behaviour. Preliminary studies have shown a correlation between low levels of prenatal and neonatal vitamin D and the development of disorders including autism, ADHD and learning disorders in the offspring. There is also a well established link between low levels of sunlight in winter and the development of depression and mood disorders.
