Vita-Kids™ provided by Douglas Laboratories® is a great tasting, chewable multiple vitamin-mineral trace element supplement designed for children age four and up.
The unique teddy bear shaped VitaKids™ chewable tablets provide 27 vitamins, minerals and trace elements in bioavailable forms and nutritionally meaningful amounts. Vita-Kids™ is more than just another children’s multivitamin-mineral supplement. Research shows that above RDA amounts of many vitamins may have significant positive effects on the structure and function of growing bodies. Compared to major brands of children’s chewable multivitamins, the convenient chewable tablets of Vita-Kids ™ provide several times the levels of the important antioxidant vitamins C and E. Vita-Kids™ also delivers significantly more than the levels of most B-vitamins of brand-name vitamins, and provides easily absorbable calcium and magnesium, as well as a full spectrum of bioavailable trace elements.
In fact, VitaKids™ is one of the most complete children’s chewable multivitamin/mineral formulas on the market. In contrast to typical children’s vitamins, vitamin D is intentionally kept low, because it can be potentially toxic in high amounts, and regular diets already provide generous amounts of vitamin D. Vita-Kids™ uses only the purest, most hypoallergenic ingredients and contains no artificial colours, flavours or preservatives.
Indications: Vita-Kids™ is ideal for children that are at risk for vitamin, mineral and trace element deficiencies due to sub-optimal dietary intake, and life style.
