Children’s Health has special health requirements.
Children have an immature physiology and their nutritional requirements are different from those of adults.
The three most important systems of the body to support whilst your child is growing are.
1. Neurological Function
Behavioural and cognitive difficulties can disrupt the learning ability of some children. It is critical that the developing brain receives the nutrition it needs and that neurotransmitter function is optimal to support:-
• Cognitive development
• Nervous system function
• Stress and anxiety
It is of utmost importance to support your child’s immune system as it develops. A healthy immune system may help to protect your child from common immunological conditions such as:-
• Upper respiratory complaints
• Allergy, hay fever, sinusitis
• Ear infections
• Coughs and colds
3. Gastrointestinal Health
Gastrointestinal function is fundamental to a child’s health and linked to immune regulation, neurological development and growth.
Some common gastrointestinal conditions which occur are:-
• Poor digestive function
• Cramping and tummy aches
• Wind and gas
The best start for your child
To give your child’s health the best start, all that is required is a day to day routine following this simple 1, 2, 3 regime and adopting a nutritional balanced diet
1. Daily children’s multi-vitamin – enhanced absorption of minerals and activated vitamins
2. High quality fish oils for enhancing neurological function and brain cognition
3. Healthy gut bacteria for continued support to the health of the gastrointestinal system
