Keeping Your Kids Well 05/10/12

It’s a fact of life kids spread germs. The number one reason daycare aged children go to their pediatricians is for upper respiratory infections. Daycares are a rest havens for bacteria and viruses and when your children get sick, not only do they fill bad but you also have to miss days from work.

Wouldn’t it be great to keep your children from getting sick in the first place? Two supplements that really help your child stay well the entire year are: Cod Liver Oil and Probiotics.

Kid’s DHA is a pure icelandic cod liver oil that has a great tasting berry flavor. Kid’s DHA Kid’s is an excellent source of Vitamin D.

Vitamin D is a fat-soluble hormone. Every cell in the human body has receptors for Vitamin D. Vitamin is a powerful immune booster and numerous studies have shown that supplementing with Vitamin D can keep your children healthy.

One study looked at school-aged children that took 1,200 IU of Vitamin D daily. These children had less colds, flu, and upper respiratory infections. When they looked at the children in this group that had asthma, they actually had less asthma attacks then the children that did not take the Vitamin D.

It is a good idea to have your child’s Vitamin D levels checked. Extremely low levels may need a liquid Vitamin D product that provides more Vitamin D per serving.

Kid’s DHA is also an excellent source of the omega 3 fatty acid DHA, which is an omega 3 fatty acid that is very high in the brain. DHA has been shown to help improve children’s performance at school and their behavior.
Studies have shown that children with ADHD and autism often times have much lower levels of omega 3 fatty acids and when these omega 3 fatty acids (EPA/DHA) are replaced the symptoms of ADHD an autism become much more improved.

I firmly believe that good health begins in the gut. Many people do not know that we actually have more bacteria in our intestines than cells. Imbalances between good and bad bacteria can lead to gas, bloating, diarrhea, constipation, eczema, and more.

Supplementing with good bacteria, also known as probiotics can help keep your children healthy.

A study looking at day-cared aged children that consumed probiotics on a daily basis showed that the children to took the probiotics had less upper respiratory infections, need less antibiotics, and missed less days at school.
