Boasting the best bio-available forms and nutritional amounts of vitamins and minerals, Douglas Laboratories Vita-Kids chewable tablets with natural grape flavour take their product to an above-average supplement quality that trumps traditionally formulated products for children.
Vita-Kids contains amounts of vitamins generally above the RDA (Recommended Daily Allowance), and a lower amount of Vitamin D, based on current research. Research studies show that above-RDA amounts for many vitamins can significantly improve the functioning and structure of growing bodies. Intentionally low amounts of Vitamin D have been added due to the fact that most diets already contain a very generous amount, and Vitamin D can be toxic in higher amounts.
