D-Pearls Junior - The sunshine vitamin for children

What is vitamin D?
Vitamin D is a fat soluble vitamin which plays an important role in maintaining blood levels of calcium and maintaining healthy bones and teeth. It is also needed for the normal function of the immune system and inflammatory response.

The majority of vitamin D in the body is created during skin exposure to sunlight, but many people in Northern Europe and the USA do not get adequate exposure. Cholecalciferol is an animal source of vitamin D3 which is most easily absorbed. As vitamin D is a fat soluble vitamin (dissolves in oil), an oil-based preparation is best for optimal absorption.

Why should you take D-Pearls?
D-Pearls contain 5 µg (200 IU) of Vitamin D3. The preparation is specially formulated in gel 'pearls' and dissolved in cold pressed organic olive oil to enhance absorption. It contains the cholecalciferol form of D3, which is produced naturally in the skin.

Supplementation with vitamin D3 is recommended for children, older adults and individuals with dark skin living in Ireland, particularly during the months of October through to March. Small amounts of vitamin D can be found from dietary sources including egg yolk, fish oils and oily fish such as salmon, herring and mackerel. These food items are not commonly consumed by children and makes this age group particularly at risk of vitamin D deficiency.

Vitamin D deficiency

In children a lack of vitamin D may result in rickets (softening of the bones leading to ‘bow legs') In adults, deficiency may result in osteomalacia (softening of the bones and muscle weakness). Deficiencies may also appear in strict vegetarians and pregnant women. The body's ability to manufacture vitamin D declines with age, and vitamin D deficiency is more common in the elderly.

As vitamin D is an important immune system regulator, optimal vitamin D3 levels have been shown to inhibit the development of some autoimmune diseases and also to reduce the occurrence of respiratory infections. For a healthy immune system, ensure to supplement with vitamin D.
