Vitamin D For Children’s Natural Health

Fat-soluble vitamins dissolve in fats and oils.  They are abundant in high fat foods and are more easily absorbed into the bloodstream when they are eaten with fat.  Examples of healthy dietary fat includes cheese, eggs, fatty fish, nuts, avocados, extra virgin olive oil, coconut oil and full-fat yoghurt.

Health Benefits of Vitamin D For Healthy Children

This vitamin has multiple roles in the body including supporting the health of the immune system to protect against illness and disease (especially auto-immune conditions).  Vitamin D maintains the health of growing bones and teeth by aiding the absorption of calcium and phosphorus.  It supports lung function and the cardiovascular system plus vital anti-inflammatory properties crucial for general wellbeing.
