The Launch of FamilyD Vitamin D.
Kora Healthcare’s new range of Vitamin D supplements in Ireland
Kora Healthcare, an Irish Company, are delighted to announce the launch of FamilyD, their new range of food supplements to promote Vitamin D supplementation in Ireland.
The Vitamin D nutrient is important for bone health, strong teeth, immune system function, muscle function and it may help protect against respiratory infections and counter inflammation 1, 2. With winter drawing in, this means we are no longer able to produce adequate levels Vitamin D from sunlight 3.
The HSE and FSAI have recently updated supplementation guidelines for infants and children. The update for infants reflects the need for accurate dosing of 200IU or 5μg for babies being breastfed or taking less than 300ml of infant formula per day 4. There has also been an introduction of guidelines for children for the first time. These guidelines recommend a daily dose of 200IU or 5μg liquid Vitamin D supplement per day during winter for 1-4-year olds,. Full recommendations can be found on the HSE and FSAI websites 5, 6.
In Ireland, recent studies have shown that some 47% of the population over 85 years old are Vitamin D deficient, 27% of adults over 70 who are cocooning are deficient, and 20% of the Irish population of adults are deficient in the winter months 2.
To help address these specific needs of the Irish population, Kora Healthcare are delighted to announce FamilyD, a range of Vitamin D3 formulations for newborn babies to the elderly and special populations. The range has been designed to allow easy administration with a choice of oral syringe, pump, sprays, or capsules to help Irish people of all ages to manage their intake requirements every day.
Building on 10 years of experience for the original BabyD brand, we are delighted to add the following presentations and dosages:
|BabyD 200IU Vitamin D3 pump|
|ToddlerD 200-400IU Vitamin D3 spray|
|DailyD 400IU Vitamin D3 spray|
|DailyD 1000IU Vegan Vitamin D3 spray|

Conor O’Daly, CEO of Kora Healthcare said
