Five Vitamin Supplements to Support Kids’ Immune Health

Children's Immune Vitamins

We’re strong believers that farm to table, raw organic lean protein, fruits and vegetables are the key to optimum health and well-being for kids. We also understand that a growing challenge for today’s busy families is finding the time to shop for and prepare healthy foods on a regular basis. That is why the need for vitamin and mineral supplements is greater today than ever before. For most families, choosing the right supplements can be a very overwhelming decision given the number of choices available today. 

If your goal is to bolster your children’s overall immune health, here are five important supplements to consider:

1. Probiotics

Did you know that 70% of your immune system is in your gut? Probiotics are a type of “good” bacteria found in some health supplements and help to support digestive health. Additionally, probiotics may help with gas, bloating, constipation, diarrhea, and yeast infections. Safe for children, they are also believed to help relieve urinary tract infections and acne.

 2. Vitamin C (with Echinacea)

Vitamin C helps to support the immune system, iron absorption and collagen formation. It also helps the healing of minor wounds and promotes healthy gums and teeth. In addition to stimulating the immune system, Vitamin C may help to neutralize free radicals in the body. Some Vitamin C supplements also include Echinacea. Echinacea is a commonly used dietary supplement for fighting infections, as it increases the number of white blood cells in the body.

 3. Black Elderberry (Sambucus)

Black Elderberry Extract, also known as Sambucus, is rich in flavonoids (a group of plant chemicals found in many fruits & vegetables) and acts as a powerful antioxidant to help support children’s immune systems. Elderberry is a fruit often used to combat the common cold and flu. Packed with Vitamin C, dietary fiber, and antioxidants, Sambucus can be an all-star health supplement for kids.

 4. Multivitamins

A multivitamin can provide your child with essential vitamins and minerals for their health that they may not be getting in their daily diet. Look for a multivitamin that contains 100% of the recommended daily values of important vitamins such as Vitamin C, Vitamin D3, Vitamin B6, and Vitamin B12 and minerals such as Calcium, Magnesium and Zinc.

 5. Vitamin D3

Vitamin D3 is a type of Vitamin D that the skin produces when it is exposed to sunlight. Vitamin D3 helps support immune health and helps the body absorb calcium and phosphorus; and is vital for building strong bones. Vitamin D3 may also help to improve cardiovascular health and prevent later cholesterol issues.

 Once you’ve decided which supplements you’d like to try to support your children’s immune health, here are some important questions to ask when considering the numerous choices available today:

 · Are they allergy friendly?

· Will my children like the taste?

· Are they in a form that’s easy to take? (Gummies and liquids are preferable to a tablet or pill that must be swallowed)

· Do they contain any artificial colors or flavors?

· Are they easily absorbed into the body (“bioavailable”)? (Liquid and gummies are 98% absorbable compared to 20% for pills and tablets.)

· Are they affordable? Don't buy the cheap stuff, because your child's health is to important.

 Congratulations on your decision to make better choices to improve your children’s long-term health! We wish you and your family the best of luck on your wellness journey.

 Best of health,

Probiotics: Are You Listening to Your Gut?

 

Organic Liquid Probiotics

It seems these days that we are hearing a lot about probiotics. But what are they and why are they important to our wellbeing?  The Mayo clinic defines probiotics as “good bacteria that are either the same as or very similar to the bacteria that are already in your body.”

What you may not realize is that the proper balance of good bacteria and bad bacteria in your gut is essential to your immune and digestive health. Although certain foods such as yogurt, kefir, and fermented vegetables may have some good bacteria in them, you are likely not getting an adequate amount of these foods in your diet. Supplementing your diet with a daily probiotic can help you maintain a good balance of good bacteria to support your digestive and immune health.

While there are many pill forms available, your body usually absorbs only about 20% of probiotics in pill form. A liquid probiotic is living plant and soil-based probiotics and enzymes that are wild raised and collected in liquid form which is tasteless and easy to take. They are formulated with stomach acid and bile resistant, clinically proven strains with no refrigeration necessary.  Most importantly, liquid probiotics have an approximately 98% absorption rate.

Go Healthy Natural liquid probiotics in particular, are allergy friendly: no animal derivatives, yeast, dairy, maltodextrin, magnesium stearate, soy, sugar, wheat, gluten, eggs, salt, artificial flavors or preservatives. Our Premium USDA certified Organic Liquid Probiotic is a vegan friendly product with all natural and safe ingredients that gently crowds out the bad bacteria and helps the good bacteria thrive.
