Kids are notoriously picky… it’s hard at times to sit down for long at a meal and enjoy, or to find a vitamin they like, and are happy to eat! As moms, we want to be sure our kids don’t miss out on key nutrients their bodies crave, but we also don’t want to pay for something with junk ingredients which doesn’t really benefit them. (Is it bioavaliable? Easily absorbed by the body? Synthetic? How does the body respond? What is the dosage?)
You’d be hard-pressed to find a uniform understanding of balanced vitamin and mineral levels if you read the label on any multivitamin. This varies widely from brand to brand. The amount a person needs also varies widely from individual to neighbor.
That’s because this truly changes daily – based on age, diet, activity level, and more!
To combat this, try this solution:
Here is what you need to know…
Balanced vitamin and mineral content
If you read the label on any multivitamin, you’ll find the amounts of vitamins and minerals vary widely between brands. What do you trust? The amount a person needs varies just as much based on age, diet, activity level, and more…
I’d prefer not to rely on luck of the draw when it comes to supporting my child’s health… I instead, choose to rely on nature.
Your body can only absorb so much at once. High doses don’t always get used by the body… Many times they go right through us, which is not beneficial. Instead, choose an herbal multivitamin in smaller doses which the body can actually use.
Actual food (not just food based)
Find a vitamin made from whole, organic herbs, which nourishes the body, because the body recognizes it as food.. Not just something “food based,” which was in reality made in a lab.
Because the vitamins and minerals are in the exact forms as they are found in nature, they are easily absorbed and used by the body.
Safe for MTHFR mutations
Whole herbs naturally contain methylfolate, which is safe for those with MTHFR gene mutations – no folic acid, here!
This herbal multivitamin is sweet, herbacious, and sometimes minty – depending on your taste buds. It’s truly delicious!
Easy-to-use liquid and dropper
There are no pills to swallow or chalky tablets to chew. This one is a liquid which can be taken alone or added to your favorite drink.
It’s truly the next best thing to eating a perfect diet from nature (plants!) – because it is nature, in a concentrated, easy-to-consume liquid formula.
Well, what do you think about an herbal multivitamin? Have you ever tried one?
