Vitamin D3



Vitamin D is very important, especially for children because it helps regulate calcium metabolism in addition to the numerous benefits for the cardiovascular and nervous systems. Proper nutrition and healthy exposure to the sun guarantee the need but sometimes it is necessary to supplement it, especially in very young children.
