The antioxidant properties of beta-carotene and proanthocyanidins (which are found in blueberries) help protect healthy cells against oxidative and free radical damage. In addition, zinc is an essential component in several metabolic pathways in the body, including production of healthy immune cells. Finally, elderberry and honeysuckle both contribute to immune-protective functions in the body. The great tasting natural grape flavoured liquid of Vita-Kids Immune helps keep children's immune systems working at optimal capacity, which in turn gives parents peace of mind!
A healthy immune system is important for people of all ages; however, it's especially crucial in children, as their immune systems are still developing and are more susceptible to falling ill. Excessive formation of free radicals (from environmental sources such as pollution or cigarette smoke) can have a negative impact on numerous processes in the body, such as the immune system.
Aviva Customer Review
Both of my children are asthmatic and @ 13 and 9 years of age respectfully we have spent a lot of time and resources searching how to make their breathing easier. They are both on numerous puffers and pills but life is still not easy.
My daughter is what doctors call "fragile" meaning any time a cold or flu comes though school, she will catch it and the asthma goes out of control. In her short 9 years she has been hospitalized 7 times with pneumonia.
Our doctor told us to try Vita-kids immune and what an improvement! Their immune system picked up and over the past 8 months neither child has caught a cold or flu. As a result their asthma is much easier to regulate and our lives are much closer to "Normal"!
