Support Your Child's Immune System!
As your child is growing and developing, so is their immune system. Building a strong immune system takes years, however, there are several ways you can ensure that your child’s immune system has all of the tools it needs to function optimally.
For example, eating a nutrient-rich diet, minimizing stress, staying hydrated, getting an adequate amount of sleep, exercising regularly, and practicing good hygiene, are all simple lifestyle factors that you can emphasize with your child.
Additionally, supplementing with specific nutrients, such as vitamin C and zinc, may further strengthen your child’s immune system. Since there are very few well-formulated immune system support supplements that are kid-friendly, we took it upon ourselves to construct our own!
Introducing the Kidz Daily Immune Gummies!
Kidz Daily Immune Gummies are specifically formulated to support your child’s immune system. Each gummy contains efficacious doses of three key ingredients, including:
- Vitamin C
Every bottle of Kidz Daily Immune Gummies comes with 60 servings, which will last you approximately 2 months. Not to mention, Kidz Daily Immune Gummies are easy to take on-the-go, low in sugar/calories, and taste phenomenal, so your child will actually look forward to taking them! Keep in mind that this supplement is intended to be used for kids who are at least 4 years of age or older.
Kidz Daily Immune Gummies can be used on their own or stacked with Kidz Multivitamin Pectin Gummies for even more health benefits.
As a dietary supplement, parents may give each child, four years old and up, one (1) gummy a day. Instruct the child to chew each gummy thoroughly.
Caution: Do not exceed recommended dose. Pregnant or nursing mothers, children under the age of 4, and individuals with a known medical condition should consult with a physician before using this or any dietary supplement.
Store in a cool, dry place.
Vitamin C (as Ascorbic Acid) - 45mg (50% DV)
Vitamin C, also known as ascorbic acid, is an essential water-soluble vitamin that’s naturally found in several foods, such as citrus fruits, tomatoes, and potatoes. However, consuming enough vitamin C from diet alone is often difficult and humans cannot produce vitamin C on their own. So supplementation is a good way to ensure your body has a sufficient amount of vitamin C on a daily basis.
Vitamin C is most well known for its role in the immune system, but it’s also necessary for the synthesis of collagen, L-carnitine, and several neurotransmitters. Collagen is the main structural component of tendons, ligaments, hair, skin, and nails. L-carnitine is needed for transporting fatty acids into the mitochondria to be converted into energy. Neurotransmitters are chemical messengers that help relay signals between the central nervous system and peripheral nervous system. Vitamin C is also somewhat involved in protein metabolism.
In terms of the immune system, vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that defends against free radicals and oxidative stress. Vitamin C is also a cofactor for a variety of bioregulatory enzymes and supports numerous cellular functions of the innate and adaptive immune systems. As you can see, vitamin C is essential for optimal health, which is exactly why K-Pow offers a stand-alone Vitamin C supplement.
Zinc C (as Zinc Citrate) - 3.75mg (34% DV)
Zinc is an essential mineral that’s naturally found in various foods, such as oysters, beans, nuts, red meat, and poultry.
Zinc contributes to immune function, cell proliferation, protein synthesis, wound healing, cellular metabolism, DNA synthesis, and normal growth/development. Zinc is a cofactor for over 300 enzymes that indirectly impact immune system function. Furthermore, zinc directly affects the proliferation and maturation of leukocytes, also known as white blood cells.
Since the body has no way of storing zinc, it’s crucial to intake an adequate amount of zinc daily. An insufficient intake of zinc can negatively affect the immune, reproductive, and nervous systems.
It’s important to note that phytates, which are present in whole-grain cereals, bread, legumes, and other foods, can bind to zinc in the gastrointestinal tract, thus limiting its absorption. So you may think that your child is consuming enough zinc from their diet alone, but they are likely not absorbing an adequate amount. Thus, supplementing with zinc is often recommended.
Elderberry (Sambucus Nigra L.) (Fruit) - 50mg
Elderberry, also known as Sambucus Nigra, is one of the most popular medicinal plants in the world. It’s commonly used to treat various medical ailments, including infections, pain, swelling, and inflammation. Since elderberries contain a high concentration of vitamins, polyphenols, flavonoids, and antioxidants, it’s very beneficial for the immune system.
Some evidence suggests that elderberries express potent antioxidant, antiviral, immunostimulatory, and anti-inflammatory properties. Therefore, supplementing with elderberry may reduce your chances of becoming ill by supporting various aspects of your immune system.
The following ingredients are simply used to create the gummy and add flavor/coloring:
- Glucose Syrup
- Citric Acid
- Elderberry Flavor
- Vegetable Oil (contains Carnauba Wax)
As you can see, Kidz Daily Immune Gummies do not contain artificial sweeteners, colors, or any other unwanted ingredients!
