The health benefits of vitamin D have dominated the headlines recently, and now there's an easy way for the entire family to obtain a daily dose of this very important vitamin. WELLESSE(R) a leading manufacturer of liquid nutritional supplements that support health and wellness, introduces new, natural berry flavored Liquid Vitamin D3.
"Liquid Vitamin D3 makes it easy for the entire family to reap the vitamin's health benefits. Its great-tasting, fast-absorbing liquid formula is especially helpful if someone in your family has trouble or doesn't like to swallow pills," says Greg Andrews, Wellesse Vice President of Marketing.
Marie Spano, MS, RD, a vitamin expert and Wellesse consultant added, "New research shows vitamin D provides an array of health benefits. For example, it helps support a healthy immune system and helps promote bone and colon health. Unfortunately, certain lifestyle and dietary choices make it hard for many Americans to meet the Recommended Daily Allowance or RDA for vitamin D."
Spano added that experts believe the current RDA of vitamin D is too low. "It's double jeopardy. Many adult Americans don't meet the RDA of 400 International Units (IU) of vitamin D and many experts recommend consuming an even greater amount, up to 1000 IU of vitamin D daily."
Further support of the importance of vitamin D comes from such prestigious organizations as the American Academy of Pediatrics, which recently doubled the recommended dosage of vitamin D for infants, children and teens.
The body makes vitamin D3 -- the preferred form of the vitamin -- from sun exposure. But individuals who spend a great deal of time indoors, live in northern climates, wear sunscreen or reside in smoggy areas may not obtain enough vitamin D from the sun exposure alone.
Dietary sources of vitamin D include beef liver, mackerel, sardines and cod liver oil. It's also added to fortified foods like milk. "Most people don't regularly eat enough vitamin D rich foods or drink enough milk to satisfy the RDA," says Spano. "For these reasons, supplements like new Liquid Wellesse Vitamin D3 are a convenient way to ensure optimal vitamin D intake."
For adults, just two teaspoons of Wellesse Vitamin D provides 1000 IU of vitamin D3 and one teaspoon for children ages 4 to 12 provides 500 IU per day. It is available at Walgreens, Stop & Shop, and Giant. Suggested retail price is $6.89 for a 16-ounce bottle. A $2.00 coupon is available at http://www.wellesse.com.
