At our office, we believe that given the proper nutrition, your body has the capability of keeping itself healthy. We also believe that nutrition should be individualized to meet each patient's needs. For these reasons and many more, we proudly sell and recommend Standard Process whole food supplements.
Ensuring you're taking the right supplements to support your health is important, but do you know if you're giving your children the correct tools to grow up strong and healthy? Here are a few supplements I suggest to begin giving to children as they grow up to help support their body.
Catalyn Chewables provides nutrients in whole food from, containing 15 different food sources in one pill. With a natural strawberry flavor, your child will receive a mix of vitamins, minerals, and phytonutrients. These will help by supplying multiple vitamins and minerals for complete, complex nutritional supplementation. Encourage healthy cell function, bridging nutritional gaps in the diet and support overall well being.
Omega-3 ’s are a necessity if you don't have that rare child who begs for fish for dinner. These Tuna Omega-3 Chewables or Calamari Omega-3 Liquids include DHA and EPA which will help your child in many ways. These pills will support the immune and circulatory systems, support cognition, promote emotional balance, support a healthy heart, and help strengthen their skin and hair.
Congaplex Chewable is naturally flavored with raspberry and is the best in the game to help combat seasonal allergies and colds. Its special formulation will support your child's immune system and especially upper respiratory tract health. Specifically, this tablet supports the thymus gland, provides antioxidant support, and contains ribonucleic acid which is what the body uses to build new cells.
To help your child grow to have a strong foundation, it's important to support their bones. Calcium comprises over 98% of the mineral component for bone and teeth, and is necessary for muscle and nerve function. You have two options for calcium, one is Calcium lactate powder, and the other Calcifood. Calcifood is almost exclusively to support the growth of strong bones, while Calcium Lactate Powder contains both calcium and magnesium to help support muscle contraction and condition as well.
SP Green food is a blessing in disguise if you have a picky eater. This capsule contains brussel sprouts, kale, buckwheat, barley grass and alfalfa straight from the farm. These vegetables contain antioxidants and compounds that support the body's detoxification process. In addition, this will support normal growth and development, cellular health, and provides phytonutrients. If swallowing pills seems like a daunting task, you are able to crush it up and mix it into yogurt or pudding.
If you feel you could be doing a little more to help support your child and their growth, make an appointment for a consultation and I'll be able to sit down with you to figure out the exact vitamin and dosage to help protect your child in every way!
Sincerely, Dr June Shell
