Who makes the best children’s vitamins?
A growing body of medicine indicates that the answer to your child’s health lies in a particular class of sugars, otherwise know as polysaccharides, which fortify the immune system
There has always been some amount of controversy on the subject whether your child gets all the vitamins he or she needs from his regular diet. Or whether you need to supplement that diet with children’s vitamins.
Expert opinion is now veering round to the fact that while a balanced regular diet can theoretically give your child all the necessary vitamins, several factors operating in real life contribute to less than optimal children’s vitamins finally reaching your child’s system. Simply put, your child needs a regular dose of children’s vitamins.
Now what are those factors that reduce the vitamin content in the child’s diet? One their eating habits. Children gobble up all sort of junk food and end up eating a less balanced diet. Second, they often don’t chew their food well, reducing the nutrients absorbed by the body. And then, there is the quality of the food that we eat. This has steadily declined over the years. Studies say the amount of calcium in broccoli has fallen by a whopping 50 per cent, the iron content in watercress is down by a steep 88 per cent, vitamin C in cauliflower has fallen by a huge 40 per cent… The only good food available is organically grown food.
The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) thinks your child may not need those extra vitamins because most of the daily foods they eat are fortified. But it also recommends that a regular daily dose of children’s vitamins is not going to hurt unless it exceeds the daily recommended dose.
The fact is you can never be sure your child is getting the right amount of vitamins. So why take chances? Start with food-based vitamins.
Now let’s look back on polysaccharides for a minute. What diseases do the polysaccharides treat? The answer is: NONE. Their job is not to give space for disease to take root in the body! It’s all about prevention!
