Now, let’s bridge this Nutritional Gap with,
Promotes daily wellness & balanced energy
- Vitamin A is important for babies and young children, and some may not be getting enough. It strengthens their immune system, can help their vision in dim light and maintains healthy skin.
- Supports cell growth and differentiation, playing a critical role in the normal formation and maintenance of the heart, lungs, kidneys, and other organs.
- The role of vitamin A in innate and adaptive immunity may also include reducing susceptibility to and/or severity of other infections.
- Vitamin D is important to the body in many other ways as well like, muscles need it to move, nerves need it to carry messages between the brain and every body part, and the immune system needs vitamin D to fight off invading bacteria and viruses.
- Vitamin D plays an important role in metabolism & absorption of calcium and bone mineralization, helps maintain normal growth and development of bone in children.
- B-complex vitamins are a class of water-soluble vitamins that play important roles in cell metabolism.
- Each B vitamin is essential to certain bodily functions:
- B1 and B2 are important for healthy functioning of the muscles, nerves, and heart
- B3 helps regulate the nervous and digestive systems.
- B12 are required for normal growth and development.
- B6 supports the immune system and aids the body in breaking down protein.
- Zinc supplementation has improved the growth rate in some children who demonstrate mild-to-moderate growth failure and who have a zinc deficiency.
- Zinc along with Vitamin D3 helps in normal growth and Mineralization of bones.
- Zinc is also required for the production of collagen, which is the most abundant protein in the body. Collagen is very strong and forms bone, cartilage, skin, and tendons.
- Zinc promotes wound healing, enhances the functions of the immune system& protects against infections.
Iron Deficiency Can Affect Your Child’s Cognitive Function
- Iron is an essential component of hemoglobin, an erythrocyte protein that transfers oxygen from the lungs to the tissues. As a component of myoglobin, a protein that provides oxygen to muscles, iron supports metabolism.
- Iron deficiency can delay normal infant motor function (normal activity and movement) or mental function (normal thinking and processing skills).
- Iron is also necessary for growth, development, normal cellular functioning, and synthesis of some hormones and connective tissue.
