The importance of Vitamin D and Sunscreen for you and your little ones
Keep you and your family safe from sunburn and enriched in Vitamin D!
Vitamin D is hugely important for maintaining healthy bones and teeth, fighting off a range of diseases and helps boost your overall brain function.
Therefore Vitamin D supplements are essential for you and your children. See range of Vitamin D options HERE.
Benefits of Vitamin D
Healthy bones and teeth:
Can reduce high blood pressure:
Recent studies are showing that Vitamin D supplements and exposing people to more UVA and UVB rays have normalised their high blood pressure. Some studies say the reason behind is it decreases the production of a hormone called renin which in effect lowers high blood pressure.
Not only is there a possible connection between low Vitamin D levels and stiffness in the arterial walls of children but studies on asthma suggest that there is a connection between low Vitamin D exposure and an increased risk of allergic sensitisation.

Importance of Sunscreen
As the weather changes so quickly here in Ireland, it is important to always be packing sunscreen - particularly for our kids.
It's horrible to see our baby's in pain and no one wants to see their kids sunburnt, itching and feeling unwell!
It is also very dangerous for children to get sunburnt and repeat sunburns as a child can increase the risk of getting skin cancer.
Unprotected sun exposure is even more dangerous for kids who have moles or freckles, very fair skin and hair, or a family history of skin cancer.
