Each All-D drop contains Cholecalciferol (vitamin D3) – 400 IU.
All-D (Cholecalciferol) is one of the five forms of vitamin D. Cholecalciferol is synthesized in the skin from 7-dehydrocholesterol under the action of ultraviolet B (UVB) radiation from sunlight depending on the intensity of the UVB in the sunlight - determined by latitude, season, cloud cover, and altitude - and the age and degree of pigmentation of the skin. Vitamin D is important for the absorption of calcium and for the functioning of calcium in the body.
All-D (Cholecalciferol) is used to treat or prevent many conditions caused by lack of vitamin D, especially conditions of the skin or bones. Vitamin D is used to treat and prevent bone disorders (such as rickets & Osteomalacia), prevent bone loss (osteoporosis). Vitamin D drops (or other supplements) are given to breast-fed infants because breast milk usually has low levels of vitamin D.
Infants & Children below 4 years: 1 drop daily. Children above 4 years: 2 drops daily. Adults: 2-3 drops daily or as directed by the physician.
