How does this product work and affect scoliosis?
Research has shown that children with idiopathic scoliosis have lower levels or baseline vitamin D compared to their peers. The body needs vitamin D to absorb calcium, and the importance of vitamin D in skeletal health and bone density is well established. Although bone density is most often associated with calcium intake, insufficient vitamin D negatively affects calcium absorption. Bone density decrease is a significant risk factor for scoliosis curve progression. 5 drops daily (5,000IU) are recommended.
