Ultra Preventive Kid is more than just another children’s multivitamin-mineral supplement.
that going beyond RDA amounts of many vitamins may have significant positive effects on the structure and
function of growing bodies.
Ultra Preventive Kids provide important antioxidant vitamins C and E, a complete
vitamin B complex, easily absorbable calcium and magnesium, as well as a full spectrum of bioavailable trace
elements. In fact, Ultra Preventive Kids is one of the most complete children’s chewable multivitamin/mineral
formulas on the market.
This new improved formulation now features a natural orange or grape flavor, naturally
sweetened with purified stevia and xylitol, and higher amounts of vitamin D and added choline, as research
indicates both of these nutrients are important for children’s overall health and wellbeing.
Ultra Preventive Kids uses only the purest, most hypoallergenic ingredients and contains no artificial colors,
flavors or preservatives.
Studies show that a high percentage of children in North America and other developed countries eat less than
the minimum daily allowance of many essential nutrients. Adequate amounts and proper balance of these
nutrients are needed not only for maintaining good health, but also for satisfying the special nutritional
demands of growth and development during childhood.
Ultra Preventive Kids has been carefully designed and
formulated to contain the right proportions of vitamins, minerals, and trace elements without danger of toxic
build-up and without side effects. Each ingredient is selected in consideration of its absorbability, competitive
relationship with other nutrients, taste, allergenic potential, and long-term safety.
Additional vitamin D has
been added to this formula, as new research indicates that both children and adults may not receive enough of
this nutrient due to reduced sun exposure and limited dietary sources. Vitamin D plays many roles in the body
and is vital for supporting strong healthy bones. Choline, a nutrient related to B vitamins, is important for
optimal neurological and liver health and is especially needed for children’s healthy, growing bodies.
Ultra Preventive Kids is ideal for children that are at risk for vitamin, mineral and trace element deficiencies due
to sub-optimal dietary intake, and life style.
