The human immune system is a complex network of millions of immune cells, which act together to protect the body from constant exposure to threats from our environment. In most cases, the immune system does a great job of keeping people healthy, but may at times require additional support. Research has demonstrated the ability of Imu-Max to protect the immunity of children in the winter months. A double-blind, placebo-controlled study was carried out on the efficacy of Imu-Max in a large group of children during a 12-week winter season. In a group of 430 children ages one to five, 215 children were given Imu-Max and 215 were given a placebo. Of the 328 children who completed the study, those in the Imu-Max group experienced a decrease in upper respiratory challenges, as well as a decrease in the duration. Children in the Imu- Max group also had fewer days absent from day care, fewer unscheduled physician visits and a significant improvement in throat irritations and general immune response.

The human immune system is a complex network of millions of immune cells, which act together to protect the body from constant exposure to outside invaders. Most of the time, the immune system does a great job of keeping people healthy, but during certain times of the year, the immune system may require additional support. Studies have shown key ingredients in Natranix to be especially supportive to the immune system, as they include compounds that support respiratory health and normal mucus production, offering immediate support for children and adult immune challenges.
What is Vitamin D?
Vitamin D is a steroid vitamin, a group of fat-soluble pro-hormones best known for their role in supporting bone health and aiding in the absorption of calcium and phosphate from the gastrointestinal (GI) tract. It is a key nutrient for the needs of growing children and adolescents. A growing body of research highlights its important role in supporting other body systems, cardiovascular health, musculoskeletal strength, and immune function. It can target over 200 different genes throughout the body. Despite its importance, deficiency and insufficiency of this important nutrient has reached epidemic proportions around the world, in both adults and children. Kid-D Liquid Drops helps growing bodies achieve optimal levels of vitamin D and supports overall health in children.
- Supports and Maintains Bone and Dental Health
- Increases Calcium Absorption and Balance
- Boosts Immune Activity
- Helps Increase Musculoskeletal Strength
Maintaining optimal vitamin D levels in children is a concern for many parents. Known as the sunshine vitamin, one of the key roles of vitamin D is maintaining serum calcium and phosphorous balance, a key aspect of bone health. Our bodies make vitamin D by converting vitamin D2 to D3, or cholecalciferol, when exposed to sunlight; D3 is also the form which the body derives from dietary cholesterol. When calcium and phosphorus levels dip in the body, parathyroid hormone (PTH) is released to increase vitamin D conversion to the active form. D3 is then metabolized to calcitriol, a steroid hormone that helps regulate a variety of genes through the vitamin D receptor (VDR). While vitamin D is available in both forms as supplements, studies have found vitamin D3 is the preferable form as it has been found to maintain active vitamin D levels for a longer period of time.
