Nature Made Chewable - Vitamin D

My girls have taken vitamins since about the age of 3.  We take them with breakfast, and the girls find them a real treat.  I'm not sure they get what the concept of a vitamins really is, or why mommy makes them take them, but we'll worry about that later. 

Recently we added another little guy to the morning routine, a small orange chewable pill called Vitamin D.  It's from Nature Made, and it's pretty darn tasty.

Why is Vitamin D so very important to our bodies?  Great question.  Let me help you answer it:
  •  It builds strong bones and teeth by helping you body absorb calcium.
  • It helps maintain a healthy immune system.
  • It promots a healthy mood and brain function.
  • It maintains breast, colon and prostate health.

How can I make sure I get enough Vitamin D?
  • Spend time outside! 90% of our body's Vitamin D comes from exposure to the sun. It's not called the "sunshine vitamin" for nothing!
  • Eat cooked salmon, fortified milk and eggs.  All great sources of Vitamin D. 
  • Take a supplement.
 According to the U.S. National Center for Health Statistics, 70% or more of children and adults have insufficient vitamin D levels.  Making sure you're family is not part of the statistic is easy,  supplement your diet with a chewable Vitamin D made from Nature Made.
GET YOUR OWN! Natures Made Vitamins can be found at most major grocery stores and health food stores across the country.  A 90 tablet bottle of Vitamin D should cost you around $5.  Visit their website to print out a $1 off coupon.

  1. I take one Nature Made B Stress was prescribed for me by my optometrist when I was dx with Occular Herpes... so far no outbreaks...YEA!

  2. LOVE Vitamin D...that and probiotics is what helps to keep us healthy! I haven't yet found a Vitamin D pill that Amos likes, so maybe I'll try this one!

  3. I just had my vitamin D checked and am low! I need get some supplements stat!

  4. We use a ton of nature made everyday! My husband and I both thake the B Stress, and fish oil. My son takes melatonin and magnesium- great products!!

  5. I would love to try the vitamins, especially since they're chewable & my kids can try them also!

  6. My oldest son and I take vitamins everyday (to be honest, it's not every day, but I try!) We'd love to try these.

  7. I want to win because I take calium pills and vitamin is great with it

  8. This chewable Vitamin D would be a great add on to the other vitamins I take. Not to mention my children could take it too. I will like the cinnamon tablets too.

  9. I live in the Pacific Northwest where we just don't get enough sun to help with the Vitamin D production. We had a particularly long rainy season this year. At my son's doctor's app he said we need to make sure he gets more D. He was seeing a lot of kids this year with a Vitamin D deficiency. It would be great to try a chewable on my son as that would be easier for him to take.

  10. Hooray for Vitamin D! And it's chewable, Perfect!

  11. I would like to win because we started giving our kids vitamin D years ago and are always looking for new brands to try. We live in Northern MN where sunlight is sparse at times. My dad's doctor told him after he had his triple bypass that everyone should take a vitamin D supplement. Everyone.

  12. My doc just "advised" me to add Vit D @ 2000 IUs per day so this giveaway is perfect timing 4 me

  13. I would love to try Nature Made Chewable - Vitamin D because the lack of Vitamin D especially during the winter months really has an effect on me. Alot of the pills out there are just too huge for me to swallow. It about time they came out with chewables and knowing our kids can take it too is an added benefit.

  14. I love Nature Made products. I take their prenatal vitamins w/DHA, vitamin D, and iron. I love that they have a chewable Vitamin D supplement, I am going to ask the pediatrician about it for my 3 year old today!
