Calcium & D3 Gummies for Kids

Herbaland Calcium D3 Vegan Gummies for Kids

Everyone knows that calcium is one of the most vital nutrients for growing children, but did you know vitamin D is equally as important? Learn why your kids can’t afford to skip these two vital nutrients and how you can get this powerful combo with our Calcium & D3 Gummies for Kids!

Both Calcium and Vitamin D are essential for strong, healthy bones and teeth as Vitamin D supports Calcium absorption within the bones so that Calcium can do its best job! Herbaland’s Calcium & D3 Gummies for Kids uses Vitamin D3 – the same form of Vitamin D that comes from the sun - which is the form most readily absorbed by the body. With delicious pomegranate and pineapple flavors, it is easy to ensure your kiddos remember to take their Calcium & D3 Gummies for Kids!

 

The Breakdown

 

Calcium

An important building block from infancy to adolescence. This nutrient helps build strong, healthy bones, and the only chance we have to build these strong bones are from infancy into teenage years. Therefore, getting enough calcium in your child’s diet ensures they will begin their adult lives with strong bones, which can protect them against age-related bone loss. In addition to building strong bones, calcium also ensures that muscles and nerves are functioning optimally. This is because calcium is an important variable in helping with muscle contractions, sending signals throughout the nerves, and releasing hormones.

Raising a vegetarian or vegan child may be more of a challenge for meeting the RDA of calcium in a vegetable-based diet. Luckily our vegan Calcium & D3 Gummies for Kids will help you fill the nutrient gaps in addition to a well-balanced diet. Not sure what plant-based foods are high in calcium? Here is a list of the top foods that are safe for your child!

 

The safest plant-based calcium rich foods for children:

Plant Based Calcium Rich Foods
  • Tofu
  • Sesame seeds
  • Legumes
  • Cruciferous vegetables like broccoli, collard greens and brussel sprouts
  • Soy milk, cashew milk and other fortified milk alternatives
  • Fortified orange juice
  • Figs
  • Seaweed
  • Blackstrap molasses

 

Vitamin D

Helps to regulate the amount of calcium and phosphate in the body, which is needed to keep bones and muscles healthy. Vitamin D also balances the immune system and is especially important during cold and flu season. It is called the sunshine vitamin as it is primarily produced in our skin by direct sunlight! Unfortunately, Vitamin D insufficiency affects almost 50% of the population worldwide, especially those who live in colder, darker climates. To get enough natural Vitamin D from the sun, you would need 10-30 minutes of direct sunlight, several times per week. Often, we are much too busy to make this a priority or do not live in a warm, sunny climate, therefore supplementation is highly recommended especially for growing children. 

In recent news, clinical trials have suggested that kids and teens may need up to ten times more Vitamin D than what’s currently recommended. This research revealed that doses up to 2,000 IU were both well-tolerated, safe, and necessary for maintaining optimal Vitamin D levels.

In addition, adolescent children who don’t get a sufficient amount of Calcium and Vitamin D are at higher risk for developing rickets, a bone-softening disease that can cause poor growth, muscle pain, weakness and bowing of the legs. Calcium & D3 Gummies for Kids help prevent and ensure strong bones in children, which is why we highly recommend supplementing, especially for children on a plant-based diet!
