Calcium and Vitamin D

This symbol certifies that your vitamin is a high quality vitamin.

The age based recommendations for Calcium and Vitamin D are:

  • 1-3 years: 700 mg of Calcium, 1000 IU Vitamin D3
  • 4-8 years: 1000 mg of Calcium, 1000 IU Vitamin D3
  • 9-21 years: 1300 mg of Calcium, 1000 IU Vitamin D3

There is evidence that 2000 IU of Vitamin D is beneficial for overweight children and adults. There is NOT evidence that very high doses (more than 3000 IU daily) add additional benefit to patients. More than 3000 IU daily can actually cause harm and we don’t recommend exceeding 2000 IU daily.
