Top 2 Nutrients For Kids Health
We all want our kids to grow up strong and healthy. Proper nutrients are vital at an early age for adequate development and growth. If you’re a parent like me, it can be dif cult to get your child to eat what they need. That’s why I created these two supplements. They are packed with all your child’s daily nutritional recommendations as well as a liquid form for easy consumption!
Why Kids Should Take a Multivitamin
Does your toddler need a multivitamin? Are these supplements safe for kids? Children have higher vitamin and mineral requirements because their bodies are growing. Ideally, these nutrients should be obtained from whole, natural foods. Since most kids are picky eaters, it's hard to make them eat their greens. On top of that, many foods contain hormones and chemicals that affect children's growth. A multivitamin can help prevent deficiencies and keep your child healthy.
The Benefits of Multivitamins for Children †
Statistics indicate that about half of 3-year-olds take multivitamins. Yet, most kids have nutrient deficiencies. The truth is that not all multivitamins are created equal. Some lack vital nutrients or contain fillers that do more harm than good. Thus, it's important to make sure you choose a multivitamin that's specially designed for kids and boasts quality ingredients.
The best multivitamins on the market contain optimum amounts of vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin D, B-complex vitamins, calcium, iron, magnesium, and other nutrients that support children's health. When used regularly, they promote bone and tooth formation, assist with brain development, and help kids maintain a healthy weight.
According to health experts, children who eat a well-balanced diet don’t need supplements, except for vitamin D. Unfortunately, most kids don't get enough fruits and vegetables in their diet. Processed and artificial foods lead to nutrient deficiencies. A multivitamin can counter act these issues. Studies have found that children taking multivitamins get higher IQ scores and have lower rates of asthma, bone diseases, food allergies, and behavioral disorders. These supplements are safe and can be used long term.
Taking a daily multivitamin helps compensate for any shortfalls in your toddler’s diet. These products are particularly beneficial for kids with food allergies as well as for those who are vegetarians or have a delay in physical and developmental growth. Fussy eaters can benefit from taking multivitamins too. A quality formula can help your child perform better at school, have stronger bones, and maintain a healthy immune system.
How to Choose a Multivitamin for Kids †
These supplements contain vitamins, minerals, enzymes, and antioxidants in various dosages. Some are fortified with vitamin D, probiotics, or omega-3 essential fats. In general, they're available as chewable tablets, drink mixes, gummy bears, or soft gel capsules. When choosing a multivitamin for kids, make sure it doesn't exceed the daily recommended allowance for the nutrients contained.
Pick a multivitamin derived from non gmo, gluten free whole food based ingredients. Food colorings, artificial flavors, preservatives, and added sugars should be excluded. Look for Liquid form for easy consumption!
A quality multivitamin should contain 50 to 100 percent of the 13 essential micronutrients, such as vitamins A, B12, C, E, folic acid, calcium, magnesium, zinc, and phosphorous. Be aware that some formulas contain the preservative butylated hydroxytoluene, artificial sweeteners, or hydrogenated vegetable oil. These ingredients are harmful to human health and increase toxic load in the body, so it's better to avoid them.
Our Multi Minis follow all these guidelines, being designed with kids in mind. It’s liquid form and rich ingredients make it essential and safe for kids of all ages. I created it for my daughter Brie, and I look forward to share it with your children as well!
Why Kids Should Take Probiotic Supplements
Children have tummy troubles all the time. Even if they eat well at home, it’s a whole different situation once they go to school or visit their friends. The snacks and sugary treats on store shelves are loaded with additives, high fructose corn syrup, gluten, and other harmful ingredients that affect children's health. These chemicals damage gut flora, causing upset stomach, bloating, eczema, and allergies. A quality probiotic supplement can help prevent indigestion and restore your child's gut flora.
Probiotics: The Friendly Bacteria †
The gastrointestinal system is home to trillions of bacteria. Some microorganisms support healthy digestion, immunity, and brain function. Others affect the immune system, leaving your child vulnerable to diseases. Certain foods and medications can disrupt gut flora and kill the good bacteria in the GI tract. Probiotics help balance the microbiome and populate the gut with friendly microorganisms.
Good gut bacteria colonize your body from the moment you are born. These living organisms form the microbiome. Over time, your gut flora changes in response to diet, stress, and lifestyle habits. By age three, a child's microbiome is quite stable and looks similar to that of an adult. However, it keeps changing because of illnesses, injuries, antibiotics, and other factors. An “out-of-whack” microbiome can increase the risk of diseases later in life.
Studies indicate that probiotics benefit children in various ways. These supplements contain living microorganisms just like those residing in the gut. When used regularly, they prevent antibiotic-associated diarrhea in kids, relieve indigestion, and prevent death of intestinal tissue in children with low birth weight.
Probiotics have the role to keep harmful bacteria in check and increase the number of good bacteria. A healthy gut flora is associated with lower rates of viral ands bacterial infections, autoimmune diseases, and inflammatory conditions. For this reason, probiotics are often prescribed to those with inflammatory bowel diseases, such as Crohn’s and ulcerative colitis. They also have a preventive role and support the production of short-chain fatty acids, digestive enzymes, and hormones.
Are Probiotics Worth the Price? †
These supplements aren't exactly cheap. Just like most things, you get what you pay for. However, they are well worth the cost. Due to their healing properties, they can save you a fortune on medications. About 80 percent of the immune system is located in the GI tract. Any disease or infection affecting the microbiome can disrupt immune function and cause major problems.
Some foods contain probiotics too. These include kefir, pickles, soybeans, natto, sauerkraut, and fermented vegetables. However, most children rarely eat these foods. A probiotic supplement can help strengthen your child’s immune system, treat infantile colic, prevent tooth decay, and reduce the severity of diarrhea. Depending on the bacteria used, probiotics may cure eczema, abdominal pain, respiratory infections, and chronic inflammation.
The more of the good bacteria we have in our system, the better our heath is. Probiotics can make a huge difference in children's health. These supplements help “move things along," boost immune function, and treat occasional digestive issues. Most formulas contain Bifidobacterium or Lactobacillus, which have proven benefits. Ideally, choose a probiotic containing five to 40 billion colony forming units per serving.
