Vitamin D in Children

As many of us know, vitamin D has a huge impact on the human body. Starting at a young age, we can see how having low vitamin D levels can negatively impact our health. Recent studies have linked vitamin D deficiency with obesity, impulsivity and poor immune systems. We have recently learned that low vitamin D levels in small children can even cause a higher risk of urinary tract infections (UTIs). While the Sperti Vitamin D Sunlamp is perfect for helping any adult raise their vitamin D levels, it is not recommended for anyone under the age of 18. For vitamin D deficient children, it is very important to feed them foods and vitamins that can naturally elevate their vitamin D levels.

Here are some articles by the Vitamin D Council that can teach you more about how Vitamin D effects people of all ages:
