With schools re-opening next week and the flu season just around the corner, now is an especially important time for your child’s immune system to be strong.
As kids’ immune systems are still developing and not yet learned to recognise and respond to a wide variety of infectious organisms, it is normal to see colds and flus as common as they come. While there is no single solution to boosting young immune systems, ensuring they are eating nourishing meals, getting plenty of sleep, sunshine and water, and proper hand washing is essential. Herbal medicines are another great option as they work beautifully to allow the body to regain balance and kick infections.
Here at Gr8 Health we have a wide range of children’s products that help to naturally boost their immunity and keep them healthy for a successful return to school. This week we have hand selected our top 4 kids immune boosting products.
These tablets are great for the little ones who have trouble swallowing tablets. Not only are they chewable, they are delicious tasting too! They come in a yummy natural strawberry & vanilla flavour packed full of herbs and nutrients to support and boost young immune systems. Echinacea is one of the most well-known immune supporting herbs and one of my personal favourites too. It helps improve the body’s defence mechanisms to fight off germs and infections such as the common cold and flu. The Acerola fruit provide a huge hit of high-quality Vitamin C to help support the immune system.
This wholesome liquid formula is made from organic Echinacea root grown in the beautiful Canterbury Plains of New Zealand. Specially designed for children aged between 2 and 12 to help maintain a healthy immune system. Echinature can be taken daily as a preventative measure or at the first sign of a cold or flu and may reduce the severity and duration of these mild illnesses. Made in a base of organic apple juice with a yummy orange flavour makes it a winner with all kids!
The kids will love these yummy gummies containing the dynamic duo of Vitamin C and Zinc. Vitamin C is a potent antioxidant and helps to stimulate the production of white blood cells which help to fight off illness-causing viruses. Zinc is a mineral superstar which is essential for immune system function, and a deficiency in this mineral may lead to a weakened immunity and illness. The kids can enjoy two of these yummy gummies daily to help boost their Vitamin C and Zinc intake and stay healthy.
A delicious pear and blackcurrant flavoured formula specially designed for children over the age of two. It contains a nourishing blend of immune strengthening herbs to help fight off infections such as the common cold and flu. Elderberry & Echinacea are both immune boosting ingredients that have shown to relieve cold and flu symptoms in children. Honeysuckle and Forsythia are traditional Chinese herbs that help relieve cold and flu symptoms such as sore throat, runny nose and mild fever. Naturally sweetened with stevia, this yummy liquid formula mixes easily with water or juice.
