Good nutrition in childhood and adolescence is essential for achieving optimal growth and normal development. It also greatly impacts overall health and well-being, including resistance to infection and achieving peak bone mass. Not only does good nutrition impact health, but it also influences socialization, self-esteem, and academic performance.[2,3] Unfortunately, the diets of many American children fall considerably short of recommended dietary standards. For instance, vitamins A, C, D, and E as well as folate, calcium, and magnesium are all underconsumed relative to the estimated average requirements (EARs).
Finding a children’s multivitamin and mineral formula that comprises nutrients in their most highly absorbable form, such as 5-MTHF instead of folic acid[6,7]; is free of toxic additives and preservatives; and tastes great without using corn syrup can be very challenging.
Whole Family Healthcare has met this challenge with Daily Fuel Junior.
Daily Fuel Junior is free of the common allergens wheat, gluten, yeast, soy protein, dairy products, fish, shellfish, peanuts, tree nuts, and egg. It does not contain hydrogenated oils, dyes, artificial colors, or other additives, such as high-fructose corn syrup; nor does it contain artificial flavors, sweeteners, or preservatives.
Quality, Naturally Daily Fuel Junior micronutrients are provided in bioavailable forms so that they can be better absorbed and utilized.
The formula features a full complement of Albion® patented mineral chelates and complexes. It not only provides natural vitamin E, which has been proven to be up to 100% more bioavailable than synthetic dl-alpha-tocopherol, but it also delivers mixed tocopherols to more closely approximate how one might consume vitamin E in healthful foods.[9,10] Folate is provided as Quatrefolic—5-methyltetrahydrofolate (5-MTHF) glucosamine salt. 5-MTHF is the most bioactive form of folate. K2 is delivered in the form of menaquinone-7.
Vitamin B12 is provided as MecobalActive™, a form of methylcobalamin that has very high purity; no harmful solvents are used in its production. Vitamins
B2 and B6 are also provided in activated forms.*
Taste To get children to take a supplement, it must taste good. The mixed berry flavor makes it easy to incorporate Daily Fuel Junior into kids’ daily routines; they will never notice all the great B vitamins and other micronutrients they are getting. Its delicious blend of blackberry, blueberry, strawberry, raspberry, and cherry flavors has the perfect balance of sweetness and tartness–one doesn’t overpower the other.
There’s also no stevia. Daily Fuel Junior is sweetened by xylitol and monk fruit extract.*
Complete Many vitamins and minerals work synergistically and cooperatively. Daily Fuel Junior features a 23-nutrient profile that includes calcium and magnesium, zinc and copper, vitamins C and E, B vitamin complex, beta-carotene, and trace elements.*
Divided Dosing Unlike one-a-day multivitamins, Daily Fuel Junior doses can be divided throughout the day to allow better utilization of the nutrients. This is particularly important for water-soluble nutrients like vitamin C and the B vitamins.* Energy Production Kids need energy to perform well in school and keep up with their extracurricular activities. Daily Fuel Junior provides generous levels of B vitamins, which serve as prime coenzymes in glycolysis and oxidative phosphorylation and as cofactors in amino acid and lipid metabolism. Many functional medicine practitioners believe that the balanced presence of B vitamins is essential to their cooperative functioning.*
Antioxidant Protection Vitamins E and C, selenium, zinc, trace elements, and 1,275 mg of mixed carotenoids (beta-carotene, alphacarotene, lutein, lycopene, and zeaxanthin) provide broad-spectrum antioxidant activity. The combined presence of all of these nutrients supports their ability to regenerate each other and maintain consistent levels of antioxidant activity both intra- and extracellularly.*
