The Vitamins Your Kids May Be Missing
Kids, back to school, and the immune system are a notorious trio. Keeping them healthy for the new school year is a must, but which supplements really make the grade?
The first test – a multivitamin
Cover the basics first.
To do that, children need the right nutrients, but not those cloaked in sweeteners.
Despite the best (and often heroic, given the circumstances) efforts of parents, many children still have nutritional gaps in their diets. It may not even be related to the foods they eat – or don’t eat – simply the fact of feeding a fast-growing system is challenge enough.
Are they getting these nutrients every day?
How about natural antioxidants from bilberry, cherry fruit and elderberry? Not exactly items you’d normally pack in a lunch, but they contain important nutrients that give your child’s immune system a boost when and where they need it, especially this time of year – when all the other kids are back at school.†
Or, what about magnesium? This often overlooked mineral supports growing muscles and bones and healthy exercise.†
Of course, nutrients that support the mind should be on their vitamin schedule, too. Iodine is one of them. It’s absolutely key to thyroid health, which you might not associate with kids, but affects just about everything in the body, including healthy brain development.†
Where can they get ‘em? Sea Buddies™ brand supplements
For every day support consider one of two Sea Buddies™ Daily Multiples. They contain 25 essential (think “must-have”) ingredients that your child needs to be their best. For an extra boost, take a look at Sea Buddies™ Immune Defense†dietary supplement.
Sea Buddies™ Daily Multiple provides nutrients for the youngest students in your life (up to 12 years old), without the heavy load of sugar you’ll find in many other supplements. But don’t worry, these chewable tablets have been taste-tested and approved by the most discerning critics–kids. There are two flavors to choose from: Splashberry and Tropical Splash, both of them delicious.
Sea Buddies™ Immune Defense† dietary supplement is excellent for children or the teen student. It combines vitamins A, C, and B6 with zinc, an immune system “power player” and good ol’ elderberry extract (something you don’t see in many made-for-kids fruit drinks) for a daily immune system boost.†
Not just for kids – Esberitox® supercharged echinacea
You’ve probably heard about echinacea. It gets into the health headlines on a regular basis. So just what does “supercharged” mean?
It means Esberitox has two – count ‘em, two – types of echinacea, plus two other botanical ingredients, wild indigo root and white cedar leaf. It’s this natural combo that provides greater short-term immune-boosting power than echinacea alone.† It “supercharges” the benefits of Esberitox in a way you just won’t find from ordinary echinacea supplements. In fact, in a recent clinical study, people taking Esberitox felt better two times faster!†1
