VITAMIN K + D3 vitamin K + D3 for babies 40 capsules
Vitamin K + D3 for babies in microdoses for dietary treatment of breastfed babies with higher demand for vitamins K and D3. Drops in “twist-off” capsules.
A vitamin K is one of vitamins which are soluble in fat. It is necessary both for proper blood coagulability as well as for calcium balance and tissue mineralisation. It is very important for proper functioning of an immune system. Its deficiency may lead to a dangerous haemolytic disease of new-born infants.
Apart from single dose of vitamin K, hospitals also recommend daily application of vitamin K preparation in microdoses up to 3rd-4th month of a child’s life.
Vitamin D3 is necessary for calcium, phosphorus and vitamin A metabolism. It is also necessary for correct development of bones and teeth and its deficiency in babies and children may result in rickets and growth delay. Breastfeeding is the best way of feeding babies within the first months after birth.
The amounts of vitamins K and D3 contained in woman’s milk are not always enough. So it is recommended to give breastfed babies vitamin K orally at the dose of 25 μg, starting from the 2nd week of life up to the end of the 3rd month. Whereas a vitamin D3 is recommended at the dose of 10 µg in the first months of life, and particularly in the whole period of breastfeeding.
