Sunshine Heroes Calcium Plus D3 (90 soft chews). This popular NSP product offers 75 percent of the daily intake of vitamin D3 recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics. Calcium consumption is of particular importance from childhood and into adolescence when bones are growing and building. The AAP recently further recognized the importance of calcium when it doubled its standard for daily consumption.
Vitamin D is important in the formulation because calcium is only absorbed by the body when there is Vitamin D present. Additionally, Vitamin D contributes to immune system functions. Since, according to the AAP, children typically do not get enough Vitamin D via milk consumption, supplements are strongly recommended by the organization.
Each serving is equal to the calcium found in one eight-ounce glass of milk. Sunshine Heroes Calcium Plus D3 is free of these common allergens: wheat, soy and milk.
