Studies show that people affected by Down syndrome typically are Vitamin D3 deficient. There are many recommendations for parents to ensure their kids, especially those with Down syndrome, get the dose they need for this supplement.
Here are other benefits why your child needs to start taking the Vitamin D now.
Vitamin D is an anti-depressant.
Do not panic. This is not what you think. Vitamin D3 has a property well known for fighting depression, which may be best for a kid with Down syndrome. Whatever your child undergoes should be enough; thus, we do not want him/her to be more depressed of anything else.
It boosts your immunity.
Like any other vitamin, Vitamin D boosts your child’s immune system. I believe people born with such or similar irregularities should have a quota on the pain they get, whether it is physical, mental, emotional or verbal. In this case, let us not make your child’s condition worse. Boost his/her immune system. It pays to be stronger and a better version of yourself.
Vitamin D helps take care of your bones and teeth.
This vitamin has an ability to manage absorption of phosphorus and calcium, which are essential in the maintenance of your child’s bones and teeth. Let’s keep your child pain minimal. At some points in your child’s development, or simply everyday life, he/she may experience muscle fatigue or weakness. Let us give your child support by making sure his/her bones are strong.
This is the Sun vitamin.
If your apartment is located somewhere, there is not much exposure to the sun, or maybe your child does not feel so well to go out and play, make sure he/she is provided with this vitamin. It provides your child the Vitamin D it needs. Deficiency of this vitamin can lead to muscle weakness.
