Kids' NeuroVite Orange Chewables
A Multiple Vitamin Effective for All Your Child's Needs
Along with their incredibly active minds and intense physical activity, kids are growing all the time. This means they need lots of vitamin and mineral nutrients- the indispensable "nuts and bolts" of the enzyme machinery that powers the body. Yet studies indicate modern foods don't meet kids' needs for these nutrients. Adding an expertly designed multiple vitamin-mineral to their diet is good "nutritional health insurance." And they'll love the tasty, orange-flavored, sugar-free penguin chewables!
Essential Nutrients Scientifically Targeted to the Brain, Eyes, and Entire Body
This science-based formulation provides generous amounts of nutrients for making energy (magnesium, the B vitamins), to support the brain's maturation (methylfolate, methylB12, choline), for vision (lutein, zeaxanthin), and many others to generally power healthy growth of mind and body.
Ingredients Selected for Purity, Optimal Absorption, and Utilization
We didn't take any shortcuts when selecting the ingredients for our Kids’ NeuroVite. We used the purest ingredients available. We left out common ingredients in other multiple vitamins that (a) may be unsafe, such as cyanocobalamin (cyanide attached to vitamin B12); (b) are poorly absorbed, such as magnesium oxide and other oxides; (c) are poorly utilized once absorbed, such as beta-carotene (poorly converted to vitamin A) and vitamin D2; or (d) are simply unnecessary, such as titanium dioxide, artificial colorants, and sugar!
Broad Spectrum of Nutrients for Healthy Minds and Active Bodies
BrainMD scoured the clinical research to document which nutrients are best proven for kids over the long term. We've optimized this ingredient mix for cellular energy generation because kids need so much of it: antioxidant power for tissue protection, methyl support which is very important for growth, vitamin A, zinc, and selenium for strong immunity, and other ingredients for numerous additional important life processes.
Ingredients & Facts
Vitamins, essential for our life processes and ongoing survival
crucial for healthy growth and for maturation of the intestinal and lung linings, as well as for healthy immunity.
Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) is a potent antioxidant. It is also an essential cofactor for enzymes that make transmitters for the brain and collagen for connective tissues.
Provided as Vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol), which the liver and kidneys naturally transform into a hormone for bone and other organ growth.
Major antioxidant protector for cell membranes, the sites of most cell activities. Full spectrum of alpha, beta-, gamma-, and delta-tocopherols.
Essential for coagulation, but also to cement calcium into bone and keep it out of the soft tissues. Provided as K2 (MK-7), more active than K1.
Thiamin (Vitamin B1)
Thiamin (Vitamin B1) is important for energy generation and for utilizing carbohydrates.
Riboflavin (Vitamin B2)
Riboflavin (Vitamin B2) is needed for energy and growth; to maintain DNA and gene structure; and for glutathione, the master antioxidant within our cells.
Niacinamide (Vitamin B3) is universally required for energy generation.
Essential for at least 112 human enzymes. Necessary for brain development and for the metabolism of carbohydrates, amino acids, and fatty acids.
Folate as methylfolate, the body's most active form. Replaces the synthetic folic acid, which is poorly utilized and interferes with healthy metabolism.
Vitamin B12, as methylcobalamin, is a very active form; not the commonly used cyanocobalamin which can break down to release toxic cyanide.
Pantothenic Acid (Vitamin B5)
Formerly "vitamin B5," Pantothenate is necessary for making energy and as a building block for amino acids, proteins, hormones and fatty acids.
For energy and for metabolism of fats and certain amino acids. Also required for healthy gene regulation (of at least 2000 genes).
Essential Minerals, also necessary for life processes and long-term survival
Necessary for strong bones, in delicate balance with magnesium.
Required by over 300 enzymes, most involved in energy generation and utilization. Balances calcium for a healthy heartbeat, nerve transmission, brain connectivity, skeletal and smooth muscle contraction, and various cell processes.
Required for thyroid hormone, a master growth regulator.
Essential for DNA structure, antioxidant defense enzymes, pre- and post-natal development, sexual maturation, immunity, behavior, skin health, and hair renewal. Balanced by copper, also an essential mineral.
A cofactor for antioxidant defense and other key life processes.
Essential for antioxidant enzymes and for metabolism of cholesterol, carbohydrates, and amino acids.
Indispensable for healthy blood sugar metabolism.
Built into at least 3 enzymes that manage sulfur metabolism.
Facilitates production of extracellular matrix, for bones and joints. Helps the body conserve vitamin D, calcium, magnesium.
Supports healthy bone and connective tissue renewal.
Other Nutrients Important for Children
Recently promoted to vitamin status. Important source for the nerve transmitter acetylcholine present in all our organs. Backs up folate and B12 as a source of methyl groups for DNA, gene regulation, and brain transmitters.
Lutein and Zeaxanthin
Vitamin-like nutrients essential for the eye's retina to form images, and likely also for the brain to process them.
Hesperidin Flavonoid Complex
Antioxidants that help protect blood vessels.
