Ostelin Vitamin D & Calcium Kids Chewable
Children grow rapidly and so do their bones. Building strong bones in childhood sets the foundation for lifelong skeletal health.
The vast majority of adult bone mass is attained before the age of 14 and peak bone mass is reached between 25-30 years of age.
Children may require additional calcium to meet maximum bone growth.
Vitamin D is essential for optimal bone mineralisation in children, especially during times when sunlight exposure is limited.
Developing strong, healthy bones during childhood helps influence bone mass.
Vitamin D helps calcium absorption and a diet deficient in calcium can lead to osteoporosis in later life.
Ostelin Vitamin D & Calcium Kids Chewable may especially benefit children who:
Are aged 2-13 years.
Who have insufficient dietary intake of calcium due to dietary limitations such as allergies or fussy eating.
Have limited sunlight exposure or who cover up when in the sun.
Are going through a growth spurt.
Have a naturally darker skin tone or a skin related condition and hence avoid sunlight.
Who wear full length clothing for cultural or religious reasons.
