Biotin, a water-soluble B-vitamin, acts as a coenzyme in the metabolism of protein, fats, and carbohydrates. Biotin also supports various metabolic chemical conversions. Children get the energy they need from food through metabolism, the chemical reactions in the body's cells that convert the fuel from food into the energy needed to do everything from moving to thinking to growing.
Vitamin C, also known as ascorbic acid, is a water-soluble vitamin that has a number of biological functions. It supports normal tissue repair, healing and immune function. It is also a cofactor for dopamine production. Supplementing with a proven antioxidant, like vitamin C, is helpful in combating free radicals, especially in children who need neurological, metabolic or digestive support. Vitamin C supports glutathione levels, another important antioxidant in the body. Vitamin C's strong antioxidant protection can support optimal immune function in children who need neurological, metabolic or digestive support.*
Vitamin D3 (Cholecalciferol)
Vitamin D, a powerful antioxidant, promotes proper brain development. It is also helpful promoting normal glutathione levels which assist in detoxification of the body. In addition to supporting strong bone, vitamin D promotes muscle strength and neuromuscular function. The main function of vitamin D is to support normal regulation of serum calcium concentrations. Children who need neurological, metabolic or digestive support have growing bodies that can benefit from vitamin D3 because it promotes calcium absorption and retention, supports growth and strength of teeth and bones, and supports skeletal health and growth.*
Vitamin E (D-alpha-tocopheryl acetate)
Vitamin E is a fat-soluble vitamin proven to be a strong antioxidant. It supports the structural and functional maintenance of skeletal, cardiac and smooth muscle. It also promotes normal formation of red blood cells, supports cardiovascular function and promotes immune health.
Calcium is an important mineral which supports numerous body processes including bone development and maintenance, nerve transmission, muscle contraction, vascular contraction, vasodilation, glandular secretion, cell membrane and capillary permeability, enzymatic reactions, respiration, renal function and blood coagulation. Children who need neurological, metabolic or digestive support have growing bodies that can benefit from calcium because it supports growth and strength of teeth and bones, skeletal health and growth, and healthy teeth and gums.*
Chromium (Amino Acid Chelate)
Chromium is an essential trace mineral that helps maintain normal glucose metabolism and helps maintain normal insulin and serum cholesterol levels. Chromium combines to form glucose tolerance factor, or GTF, in the body, which supports the actions of insulin in helping to maintain healthy blood sugar levels.
The trace element is also present in more than a hundred enzyme systems such as energy production, nerve function and hair and skin growth. One of iodine's main functions includes supporting the thyroid gland in producing thyroid hormones thyroxin and tri-iodothyronine, which support the regulation of metabolic rate.
Magnesium, an essential mineral, promotes normal function of over 300 enzymes, specifically those enzymes responsible for the production of neurotransmitters in the brain. Magnesium supports a number of other metabolic pathways including bone, protein and fatty acid formation, B vitamin activation, muscle relaxation, blood clotting and formation of adenosine triphosphate. Children who need neurological, metabolic or digestive support have growing bodies that can benefit from magnesium. Not only does it support bone formation, it promotes normal production of neurotransmitters.*
Manganese supports normal formation of connective tissue, bones, and blood-clotting factors. It supports fat and carbohydrate metabolism, calcium absorption and blood sugar regulation. Manganese also promotes normal brain and nerve function. Manganese may promote the normal use of nutrients including biotin, thiamin, ascorbic acid and choline.
In the body, selenium functions as part of an antioxidant enzyme called glutathione peroxidase, as well as supporting normal growth and proper usage of iodine in thyroid functioning. Selenium also supports the antioxidant effect of vitamin E.
Zinc is an essential mineral that is a cofactor in nearly 300 enzymes. It supports healing, protein synthesis, brain maintenance and development, cell reproduction, vision and immunity, and protects against free radicals in children who need neurological, metabolic or and digestive support.*
