Immune Boosters

One way to start preparing your  kids for their return to the classroom is by boosting their immune systems. Multivitamins are a great way to enhance the vitamins and minerals kids get from their food. These are beneficial for all children but especially those who are fussy eaters. This will help to ensure vitamins or minerals levels are boosted in the body if they are low or missing from their diet. Zinc and vitamin B1 (thiamine) can also help to enhance appetite as deficiencies in these vitamins can lead to poor appetite. We have chosen some of our top products to help supplement their diet and best protect their immune systems.

Ensure your child is getting all the nutrients they need by using a super supplement like Revive Active Junior. Revive Junior is for 5-12 years and is packed with ingredients to support a growing child’s physical and psychological needs. It contains a range of vitamins and minerals as well as the Wellmune complex. This is a complex that helps to stimulate the immune system so that it is primed to act should the body come in to contact with bacteria or viruses. It contains 20 sachets and is formulated to be easily taken in the morning with water, juice or food. The dosage is one sachet daily but it is sufficient to take this product five days a week, fitting nicely into the Monday-Friday school routine. There is also a teen version from 13-18 years with higher concentrations of vitamins and minerals in it for the older age groups.

Sambucol for kids is a liquid immune booster which contains elderberry and vitamin C. It is suitable from one year of age. Sambucol also has a forte liquid which has both zinc and vitamin C for the immune system which is suitable from 3 years of age. These are great products to help boost your child’s immune system.

Symprove is designed to replace or replenish your intestinal bacteria. It can be taken by the whole family and is suitable for children as well as adults. Symprove is a non-dairy, gluten free water-based barley drink. Officially known as a food supplement, it is the ONLY drink containing live multi-strain bacteria with its own high-speed Unique Delivery System (UDS™). The unique delivery system protects the live bacteria as they travel through the stomach without triggering digestion and ensures they quickly reach targeted areas of the gut. The 4 strains of live bacteria in Symprove come from the Lactobacilli family and these particular strains are unique to Symprove.

When giving Symprove to children you can calculate the dose depending on their weight. It is recommended that you give your child 1ml per kg of weight. If your child is 20kg then they should take 20mls once per day on an empty stomach first thing in the morning.

Symprove run an ongoing offer whereby when you purchase two boxes you can claim your third box for free. Your free four bottle pack must be claimed within 12 weeks of your original purchase.

Omegas are particularly important for concentration and brain function as a whole. Starting back at school is a great time to ensure that they are getting the most out of their classes and that they are kept focussed.

Eskimo-3 is a unique stable fish oil supplement containing a healthy balance of the omega-3 fatty acids, EPA and DHA. Omega-3 fatty acids have been well studied for their role in the support of many systems in the body, including heart, musculoskeletal and cognitive. This product contains a healthy balance of Omega-3, 6 & 9 fatty acids. From fresh, deep sea fish and not from cultivated fish. It also contains vitamin D for healthy bone development in growing children and Vitamin E which helps to keep it fresh longer.

The recommended dosage for children aged 1-12 years is one teaspoon (5ml) daily with food. Eskimo comes in a natural orange flavour that kids will love

Vitamin D

If your child has a good varied diet and you feel as though they don’t need a full multi-vitamin. it is still important to consider giving them a vitamin D supplement. This is a vitamin that can be hard to get enough of from diet alone. The other place that we can get vitamin D from is direct sunlight which, lets face it, is something we don’t get enough of here in Ireland. There are a range of Vitamin D supplements available and I find for children and teens the most popular form are the drops or the spray. Our preferred brand is Pharma Nord BioActive Vitamin D Pearls 38UG
