Vitamin D linked to lower asthma severity in children



    WOODBRIDGE, ON, April 23 /CNW/ - A report appearing in the May 2009 issue
of the American Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine is offering
exciting insights into possible reduction of symptoms of asthma in children
taking vitamin D supplements.
    Currently in Canada, approximately 1 in 10 children is diagnosed with
asthma.
    Central in the research is the theory that vitamin D insufficiency may
trigger worsening of asthma severity.
    Chris Temovsky, Vice-President, The D Drops Company Inc. comments,
"Parents would be wise to review these findings as they relate to children's
vitamin D levels". Temovsky went on to state, "What is most interesting is
that vitamin D deficiency was found in 28% of asthmatic children living in the
sunny climate of Costa Rica. What are the implications for Canadian children;
given our long 'vitamin D deficient winters' and high indoor lifestyles? These
findings provide an additional reason for parents to consult with healthcare
professionals on new vitamin D supplement options for infants and children".
    The D Drops Company Inc. is proud to offer a unique format once-daily
vitamin drop technology: Ddrops(TM) 1,000 IU, and Baby Ddrops(TM) 400IU. All
