Keep your kids fighting fit

Friday, November 22, 2019
The busiest season of the year is quickly approaching! Two useful products at this time of year are Good Health Magnesium Kids, to support sleep as the year winds down, and Good Health Viralex® Kids, to support immunity in the lead up to Christmas.

Support for sleep and growth

Magnesium is vital for every cell in growing children. Good Health Magnesium Kids provides a daily dose of magnesium in a convenient chewable tablet to support:

  • Growth spurts
  • Muscle tension after activity
  • A better night’s sleep.

Bedtime can be difficult for parents and this important mineral offers the necessary support by helping active, growing bodies relax and sleep well. Magnesium helps ease restlessness and invoke relaxation, supporting a restful night’s sleep. When kids sleep, they feel better.

The recommended dietary allowance of magnesium for children aged one to three is approximately 80mg per day. For children aged four to five, approximately 130mg magnesium per day. By age nine, it is recommended that children should be getting at least 240mg of magnesium per day.

Good Health Magnesium Kids helps top up your child’s magnesium needs. Dosage instructions are: Children four to eight years of age, chew one to two tablets daily, while children nine and over can chew two to six tablets daily, or as professionally advised by a healthcare professional.

To help provide dietary sources of magnesium, look for foods such as almonds, avocado, black beans, bran, brown rice, cashews, kidney beans, oatmeal, peanut butter, potato with skin, pumpkin, raisins, soy milk, spinach, wholegrain bread and yoghurt.

Year-round immune support

Good Health Viralex® Kids Immune Chews are specially formulated to support children’s immunity, with scientifically studied Wellmune® for less days off day care and school, to help support parents with busy schedules.

Good Health Viralex® Kids Immune Chews can help:

  • Boost children’s immune systems
  • Support children’s recovery.

They contain scientifically researched* Wellmune®, an effective ingredient from Saccharomyces cerevisiae, specifically studied on children. This is an effective ingredient which boosts the immune system naturally. During the study, children had less days off day care and school. In addition, this nutritive ingredient may support recovery time.

So if your little one is having trouble sleeping or adjusting to the busy season’s craziness, don’t hesitate to visit your local Health 2000 to buy Good Health Magnesium Kids and Viralex® Kids.

Always read the label and take as directed. If symptoms persist, consult your healthcare professional. Good Health, Auckland.

Clinical studies show how Wellmune helps keep kids healthy.
2/3 fewer URTI symptoms
Children taking Wellmune reported two-thirds fewer upper respiratory tract infections (URTI) symptoms.
6 fewer sick days
Children taking Wellmune reported 6 fewer sick days in 12 weeks.
62% report good health
Children taking Wellmune were significantly healthier, with 62% reporting “good” health status, verses 15% taking the placebo.
Families want to support their children’s immune health with natural, safe and science-backed products that fit their busy lives and appeals to their picky eaters.
A study from Mead Johnson Nutrition demonstrated that children consuming a beverage-based formula with Wellmune had significantly fewer acute respiratory infections, and the duration of their illnesses was significantly shorter than children drinking unfortified cow’s milk. A second study demonstrated fewer episodes of allergy symptoms with children drinking the formula with Wellmune.
