Kids need more Vitamin D!

One of the things I love about writing this blog is that I’m learning so much now that I’m taking the time to read about what our bodies and our environment need to stay healthy.

Cindy Latham, VP of marketing, at Shaklee, posted a study, led by Jonathan Mansbach, MD, at Children’s Hospital Boston, on her Facebook page today about Vitamin D.

The study notes “Mansbach and his co-authors suggest that all children take vitamin D supplements, because of the generally low levels that they found and the potential health benefits of boosting vitamin D to normal levels. Vitamin D improves bone health and prevents rickets in children, and recent studies suggest that it also may prevent a host of common childhood illnesses, including respiratory infections, childhood wheezing, and winter-related eczema.”

I’m going to send this study to my friend Karen as she was just asking about tips for keeping her 3-year-old clear of a stuffed up nose and wheezing at night.  Shakleekids Incredivites has 600 IU of vitamin D to support strong bones and teeth, and 100% of the Daily Value of all eight B vitamins and vitamin C.

Go Healthy Kids!
