Let’s prepare for going back-to-school!
Back to school in fall is a challenge both for parents and students. Our network offers several products which may help parents to make their children do their best both physically and intellectually.
However, nature around us changes almost on a daily basis and our body strives for balance and stability. During alternating seasons we need the same level of support, and it is only the source that changes. In spring and summer we are usually exposed to more sunlight, we can synthesize more vitamin D by ourselves while we may need more supplementation during fall and winter. It applies even more to children, as it is relevant to the development of their body that we should ensure they receive the necessary vitamins, minerals, trace elements and other useful substances from which they can grow.
Lion Kids+D is a complex multivitamin which contains most minerals and vitamins with which we can complement the diet of our children. Added calcium and vitamin D may help bone development, while muscle function is assisted by potassium and magnesium; vision by beta carotene, and vitamin Bs aid in the functioning of the nervous system and metabolism. When the season for catching cold arrives, Lion Kids C may effectively promote the healthy functioning of the immune system.
Many children are very selective and characteristically avoid healthy vegetables and fruits, causing lots of problems for their parents who would like to give them the best they can. In such cases we recommend Kids Greens which also guarantees necessary vitamins and minerals, and in addition contains such vegetable, fruit and herbal extracts which may assist in the healthy functioning of our children’s body and immune system during fall and winter. Green plant extracts in Kids Greens, like organic spinach which is especially unpopular among children in its natural form on a plate, or organic alfalfa, barley and wheat grass which are becoming increasingly well-known among people eating consciously, can be introduced unnoticed to children’s diet. The fibers of apple and flaxseed help digestion, while from among herbal extracts the vitamin C content of Echinacea and rose-hips may contribute to the adequate functioning of the defensive system of the body. In addition, we have complemented the product with pre- and probiotics, so it may offer help in cases when it is difficult to introduce milk and dairy products to the diet. Probiotics are beneficial bacteria living in the colon which may support the functioning of the immune system, while prebiotics guarantee food to this flora. As part of the bacteria can colonize in the intestines only temporarily, we should continuously provide a fresh supply.
Our products Lion Kids and Kids Greens can be given to our children in the form of delicious, fruity chewable tablets, so their dosage cannot cause problems as there most children cannot resist sweets.
We recommend Energy&Memory to older students, for periods of such extreme strain like the beginning of a semester or exam period.
The inclusion of Guarana in the diet may stimulate concentration and cognition and may boost athletic performance. Lecithin and its basic unit, choline are compounds that can be found in cell membranes, and they participate in their construction. In addition choline plays an important role in transmitting stimuli, so together with lecithin it may contribute to the adequate functioning of our brain. Vitamin E included in the product protects polyunsaturated fatty acids constituting our nervous system from the attack of free radicals, supporting our mental abilities by doing so. Vitamin C is not simply necessary to the normal functioning of the nervous system but by its antioxidant effects protects it as well. The demands of the body should be covered from the above and a balanced diet is the last thing a student pays attention to during exam period.
CaliVita takes into account the entire family, small and bigger children included. When compiling our products we have taken into consideration both the demands of the developing body and everyday challenges in order to offer the best formula to our precious offspring.
Dietary supplements can be no substitute for a balanced diet. Kids Greens is sweetened with honey and fructose. It is not recommended for those allergic to apicultural products or suffering fructose intolerance. Before long-term application consult your pediatrician for advice.
If you consume other food containing caffeine carefully apply Energy & Memory.
During pregnancy and nursing it should be avoided. In the case of cardiovascular diseases seek medical advice.
