How It Works:
Calcium is the most abundant mineral, and lifelong calcium intake is essential for the development and maintenance of healthy bones and teeth. Obtaining adequate calcium is especially important during childhood and adolescence, when bones grow and develop.
Each serving of Sunshine Heroes Calcium Plus D3 provides calcium, phosphorus and vitamin D, which work closely together to build strong bones and teeth. Vitamin D is well-known for its role in helping the body maintain healthy levels of calcium and phosphorus and for building and maintaining healthy bones. Calcium can only be absorbed by the body when vitamin D is present. Recent scientific evidence suggests that vitamin D also plays a vital part in maintaining innate immunity. The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) recently doubled the recommended amount of vitamin D that children should get daily. The new guidelines recommend at least 400 international units (IU) per day. But most children don't get enough vitamin D. The AAP states that the best way to ensure that children receive adequate vitamin D is through supplementation.
