Live Wise Naturals Baby D3-K2 utilizes plant-based vitamin D3 from edible lichen to promote a wide variety of vital functions in your child’s body. From the support of healthy cognitive function and brain development, to the healthy functioning of the eyes, bowels, and immune systems, and helping to reduce chronic inflammatory and autoimmune conditions.
Live Wise Naturals Baby D3-K2 is a unique liquid formula specifically for children and developed for those who prefer a form of vitamin D3 that isn't derived from lanolin. This plant-based liquid formula is in the natural form of vitamin D (cholecalciferol), the same form our bodies make from sunlight and the form our bodies absorb best.
How Live Wise Naturals Baby D3 Keeps Your Child Healthy
Vitamin D deficiency is common around the world and many families are unaware that they may be lacking this important nutrient. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reported that 32 percent of children in the US were vitamin D deficient. The National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey found that 50% of children aged one to five and 70% of children between the ages of six and eleven are deficient in vitamin D.
Vitamin D Positively Influences Brain Disorders such as Autism
Studies have shown a correlation between the rising incidence of autism and the rising incidence of vitamin D deficiency.(1 )Scientists believe it is worth noting that as the incidence of vitamin D deficiency has gone up, so has the incidence of autism. Studies have also shown that supplementing with vitamin D3 reduces the core symptoms of autism.(2)
Vitamin D Improves Brain Development, Language and Skills Such as Learning to Walk and Talk
A study published in The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition looked at vitamin D supplementation and it’s effects on physical and mental health. The study showed that vitamin D supplementation resulted in substantial reductions in the proportion of children with delayed motor development, delayed language development and in delay of reaching certain milestones such as learning to walk and talk.(3)
Vitamin D Fights Tooth Decay
Vitamin D can help strengthen the resistance of your child’s teeth to bacteria by helping to absorb calcium and phosphate and increase the amount of good proteins that destroy the bacteria that cause cavities. Scientists have discovered vitamin D receptors in our teeth and that vitamin D can bind to these receptors and increase the amount of good antimicrobial proteins which help fight the bacteria that cause dental caries and tooth decay.(4, 5)
Vitamin D Helps Reduce Your Child’s Risk of Developing Diabetes Later in Life
A study in Finland followed ten thousand three hundred sixty-six children who received vitamin D supplementation for the first year of life and then followed them for the next 31 years. These children had a 78% reduced risk of developing Type 1 Diabetes compared to children who did not receive vitamin D supplementation (6)
Vitamin D Supplementation Has Positive Influences in Children with Asthma
One thousand ninety-four mother-child pairs were evaluated for vitamin D levels and the incidence of childhood wheezing. There were significantly fewer asthma exacerbation's in the children who received vitamin D supplementation.(7 )
Children with Eczema and Allergies Supplemented with Vitamin D had Reduced Symptoms
Children with eczema who took vitamin D daily for 21 days had significant reductions in symptoms.(8 ) Low vitamin D levels also correlated with sensitivity to 11 of 17 allergens tested for food and environmental triggers. Children with low levels of vitamin D were more likely to have peanut, ragweed and oak allergies.(9 )
Choosing to use edible lichen as it’s source of D3, Live Wise Naturals Baby D3 is suitable for vegans, strict vegetarians and parents who prefer a non-lanolin, non-animal based form of D3 for their children.
