In addition to the full-spectrum essential fatty acid support of our Omega-3.6.9 Junior, this formula also provides 1000 I.U. of vitamin D3 per serving, meeting the daily recommendation for children and adults who do not receive adequate sun exposure. The scientific community increasingly recognizes vitamin D3 deficiency as an epidemic, and in 2008 the American Academy of Pediatrics doubled its daily recommendation for vitamin D. Vitamin D3, cholecalciferol, is the naturally occurring form of vitamin D, preferred by the body for optimal absorption and utilization. Omega-3.6.9-D Junior supports healthy brain and eye development, mood, focus, learning, strong bones, and overall well-being in children and young people ages 5+.* All this in a great lemon-flavored soft gel that kids love!
