Vitamins for Children

I’m a mom of two, my son is in 8th grade and my daughter is a junior in high school. I want to keep them healthy for school so they can concentrate and do well. What can I do? Are there vitamins they can take to help protect them from getting sick? Thank you. Kathy M.

Thank you, Kathy, for your question. This is something that all parents are asking about right now.

First, there are many lifestyle tips to help keep your children in good health, such as a healthy eating plan (vegetables, fruit, nuts, lean meat) and avoiding sugar, as well as processed and fast foods. Sugar actually depresses the immune system. It helps to wash your hands often, especially in public places like school.

Be sure to keep them active with regular exercise – maybe they want to participate in a school sport or have a hobby they love such as basketball or dance. And of course, getting a good night’s sleep is crucial. It gives the body time to relax and restore itself. 

It is also very important to give them the nutrients they need to help strengthen their immune system. Here are the vitamins I recommend for children:

Research shows that vitamin A, B Complex, C, D3, magnesium, zinc and probiotics are all effective in nourishing important immune cells. Taking these crucial vitamins and minerals will help protect and boost your immune system.

If you’re a college student who doesn’t like taking so many vitamin pills, then you can always take my Teen Pak which has less pills and will still provide benefit for your immune system.
