We rush to point A to point B all bundled up and going as quickly as possible and most of the time it is before and after the sun sets. During the winter we are more likely to stay in doors and barely enough to catch some rays so it is most highly recommended to take some Vitamin D supplements. This Ddrops Booster is currently only available in Canada at most drug stores retailers including Shoppers Drug Mart, Rexall, Metro, and Loblaws. All you need is one drop on any food, drink, on a spoon, or even a back of my clean hands. My daughter hesitated at first but noticed that it didnt have any taste so it was very easy to administer to her. For more information on Ddrops, check out their website, don't forget to follow on Facebook and Twitter.
