Does my child need a vitamin/mineral supplement?

Most children with ill health, allergies, tummy problems or feeding difficulties will benefit from a high quality supplement. Many children with gut problems do not absorb minerals so well. Iron and zinc deficiency is very common.

Excellent micro-nutrition makes healthy Children.

Children need sufficient MINERALS:
especially: Iron, Selenium, Zinc, Copper, Calcium Magnesium.

Children need sufficient VITAMINS
especially: Vitamin A, B, C, D, E and folate

For example, osteoporosis in old age leads to broken bones and serious disability. If they won’t or can’t take dairy products, then other sources are needed: Soy milk or Rice milk (fortified with calcium) or supplements are necessary. Sometimes they also need a calcium supplement.

Iron deficiency is very common. It is important to check the blood for ferritin. An iron supplement can make a big difference.

It is a good ideas to give supplements in the form as a multi-vitamin mineral supplement.

  1. you forgot the even more important B12. many children with gut problems become B12 deficient, which can end in permanent neurological damage. some experts estimate that 20% of autistic children actually have a B12 deficiency. if a kid is unusually low in minerals or vitamins, ALWAYS also test for B12!

  2. This is an issue for most children. It's very important for them to get what they need for their health. I myself need protein and fiber in my body, which is why I Buy Vega.
