Nutritional support is important to help children reach their full health potential. Our Pediatric Vitamin/Mineral Base Powder is specifically formulated to meet children’s growing needs at this important time of life. It contains all the required vitamins and minerals, in balanced amounts, in their most bioavailable forms. Activated B vitamins, amino acid chelated minerals, and 400 IU of vitamin D combine to make a safe and foundational nutritional formula for children. Along with the active vitamin forms of riboflavin 5 phosphate, pyridoxal 5 phosphate, L-5-methylfolate, and methylcobalamin, our powder contains chelated mineral glycinates of magnesium, zinc, copper, manganese, and molybdenum. Chromium niacinate (polynicotinate) and L-selenomethionine are superior forms of these minerals, and calcium is provided as fully-reacted citrate with a very fine particle size for less grittiness.
Uses: This vitamin/mineral powder contains a variety of antioxidants with varied contributions to healthy cellular function and repair. Antioxidants play an important role in neutralization of oxidative stress, and nutrient antioxidant deficiency is one of the causes of numerous chronic and degenerative pathologies . Alpha-tocopherol, the most bioactive form of vitamin E, is a fat-soluble vitamin with high antioxidant potency. Due to its fat-solubility, α-tocopherol protects cell membranes from damage by free radicals and lipid peroxidation . Vitamin C, also known as ascorbic acid, is a water-soluble vitamin. It is essential for collagen, carnitine and neurotransmitter biosynthesis. Vitamin C works synergistically with vitamin E to quench free radicals and also regenerates the reduced form of vitamin E. Beta-carotene (vitamin A) is a fat soluble member of the carotenoids that is converted to retinol, an essential nutrient for vision. It is also a strong antioxidant and is the best quencher of singlet oxygen .
Vitamin D3, cholecalciferol, is the form that animals make in response to sunlight, and is more potent and longer-lasting than ergocalciferol (vitamin D2). Vitamin D is necessary for the maintenance of bone health and calcium homeostasis . Vitamin D deficiency is a common problem as research on skin health discourages individuals from spending time exposed to sunlight. However, vitamin D deficiency is linked with osteoporotic bone loss, increased bone fractures, autoimmune disease, and neurodegenerative disorders . Vitamin K has been shown to aid in the maintenance of healthy bones by regulating calcium uptake in bone tissue, increasing new bone formation and reducing bone resorption . Zinc, copper, manganese and boron also support bone mineralization .
Selenium (Se) is a trace mineral that forms the active site of several antioxidant enzymes and is a known immunomodulator, along with vitamins A and D. Selenium is also necessary for proper thyroid function . Iodine is also essential to thyroid health, as it is a necessary element in the synthesis of thyroid hormone .
B vitamins contained in this supplement blend; thiamine, riboflavin, niacinamide, B-6, biotin, pantothenic acid, folate, and B-12, are commonly associated with energy production, nervous system maintenance, and cardiovascular health. Thiamine, riboflavin, niacinamide, B-6, biotin and pantothenic acid are cofactors for enzymes needed for cellular energy production through metabolism of proteins, carbohydrates, and fats. Thiamine, folate, B-12 are involved in neural development and neurotransmitter synthesis . Methylfolate and B-6 are required for homocysteine metabolism and have been linked to mood improvement .
