A wide variety of vital micronutrients are needed for a growing child’s body. Micronutrients play a role in strengthening immune function, converting food into energy, detoxifying chemicals, manufacturing neurotransmitters and other key signaling molecules in the body, and maintaining tissue repair and cell regeneration. A deficiency in any one of these essential vitamins or minerals can create a breakdown of metabolic processes that help safeguard a child’s health. In the average American child’s diet, nutritional deficiencies may be caused by a number of factors including poor food choices, transport and storage methods, and nutrient-depleting food processing techniques. Deficiencies may also result from highly processed and refined foods, food additives and even picky eating. In fact, nutrient deficiencies exist in a substantial portion of the United States population and for select nutrients more than 80% of Americans consume less than the recommended daily allowance (RDA).1,2 For these reasons, SuperNutes, a highly bioavailable, daily multivitamin designed specifically for children, helps ensure growing children are able to meet their daily nutritional needs.
Flora Bites is a delicious, chewable probiotic formula for children, designed to promote healthy gut microflora, protect intestinal integrity and support immune function. Each creamy, natural orange-flavored cube contains a 5 billion CFU blend of Lactobacillus acidophilus and Bifidobacterium lactis, as well as 20 mg of vitamin C for comprehensive digestive and immune system support. The strains in Flora Bites have been carefully selected for their survivability and adherence to the intestinal tract. The chewable cube form is an easy, fun way for children to achieve optimal probiotic support and a tasty alternative to a capsule or powdered probiotic.
• Helps Maintain Gastrointestinal Balance in Children • Supports Bowel Regularity
• Enhances Digestion and Micronutrient Absorption
The gastrointestinal (GI) tract is a finely balanced environment where roughly 500 different strains of bacteria compete for space and nutrients. The natural microflora balance can be disrupted by medications, such as antibiotics, or poor dietary intake. One of the key benefits of probiotics is their ability to increase populations of healthy bacteria in the face of microflora imbalance. In addition, extensive research has identified other broad health benefits, including supporting healthy bowel function, increasing the production of important short-chain fatty acids, which provide energy to the cells of the intestinal lining, boosting immune function, aiding in the digestion of difficult-to-break-down compounds like lactose and casein, and enhancing detoxification of harmful compounds
Because probiotics are living organisms, there are various challenges associated with their manufacturing and distribution. For probiotics to be effective, they must be shelf- stable through the expiration date and precisely delivered to the intestinal tract, where they can have maximum benefit. The microorganisms in Flora Bites are protected, sealed, and freeze dried away from moisture, heat, light and oxygen. This allows the bacteria to remain dormant until they are exposed to moisture in the GI tract.
Orthomega® Pearls provide omega-3 fish oil in easy to take chewable soft gel pearls for children’s health and wellness needs. While the importance of omega-3 fatty acids for adults is well known, children also require adequate amounts of these essential fats for healthy brain development, vision, skin and joints and to maintain normal inflammatory balance. With over 10,000 published studies in the last three decades, EPA and DHA from fish oil are among the most researched natural ingredients available and have a long history of safety and efficacy. In addition, Orthomega® Pearls are sourced from the world’s least industrialized coastline in Chile, where cold, fresh water provides the cleanest, most sustainable source of fish in the world. Orthomega® Pearls provides 105 mg of EPA and 185 mg DHA per 4 soft gels as natural triglycerides, the preferred form with superior absorption, in a delicious fruity-orange flavor. Vitamin E (as mixed tocopherols) is added to ensure maximum purity and freshness. In addition, this exclusive fish oil is enzymatically cleaned, vacuum-distilled, and independently tested to ensure heavy metals, pesticides and PCBs are removed to undetectable levels.
• Supports Healthy Cognitive Function and Healthy Brain Development in Children • Supports Healthy Skin, Joints and Connective Tissue
• Increases Visual and Ocular Health
• Maintains Normal Inflammatory Balance and Strengthens Immune Function
Omega-3 fatty acids are essential cornerstones of human nutrition. They are deemed “essential” because we need them for proper health—much like certain vitamins and minerals, but cannot produce them on our own. We must therefore consume these fats through diet or supplementation. Omega-3 fatty acids are required for a number of body functions, from proper blood flow to brain development. These long-chain fatty acids are integral components of tissues and organ systems throughout the body, including the heart, skin, joints, eyes and immune system. In nature, omega-3 fatty acids occur as ALA (alpha linoleum acid), found mostly in plants, and as long-chain EPA and DHA, which primarily originate from cold-water fish. The body is able to slowly convert the shorter chain ALA to the more active long-chain, EPA and DHA. However, many people lack the enzymes delta-5 and delta-6 desaturase necessary to make the conversion, making a higher dietary intake of EPA and DHA necessary. In addition, major changes in modern diet, both in adults and children, over last century have led to a decrease in the general consumption of omega-3 fats, and a dramatic increase in the dietary ratio of omega-6:omega-3. Since omega-3 fatty acids are known to benefit a healthy brain, cognition, vision and inflammatory response, achieving the proper balance of omega-3s has become an important health strategy. This requires supplementation for most people.
