We have been through some of the most challenging times as parents in the last year. With the pandemic still looming, it is crucial to keep our children’s immune systems at their best! It’s always a challenge to get the little ones to swallow pills or take liquids that taste nasty. We picked a few ultimate immune booster faves that not only taste great but will keep germs at bay. Your kids will seriously be asking for more!
Immune Boosters for Kids
The first kid-approved product is Curcum-Evail Chewables from Designs For Health. It is a mango-nectarine flavor (think healthy starburst) that contains 95 mg of curcuminoids per chew which gives a daily dose of the immune-boosting component of turmeric. The chewable delivery form offers unique support for oral and periodontal health. It also allows for the curcumin to be delivered throughout the body to support the immune, cardiovascular, and gastrointestinal systems. Curcum-Evail is very low sugar (2g per serving), and is gluten, dairy, soy, and GMO free.
The active ingredient in the Curcum-Evail Chewables is Curcumin, an extremely powerful antioxidant which aids in protecting the body from free radical damage. Antioxidants enable the body to repair and properly defend against viruses, bacterial infections, and diseases.
So how exactly does curcumin work?
Research shows curcumin helps support a healthy inflammatory response¹ by boosting NK (natural killer) cell activity which enhances the body’s ability to fight infections.
Aside from curcumin, Curcum-Evail Chewables contain other very well studied botanicals and herbs that can help kids stay healthy during the winter months.
The second product we absolutely love for kids is called Imu-Max from OrthoMolecular Products. It is a delicious berry flavor in a liquid base similar in consistency to honey.
Imu-Max is specifically formulated for children to boost immune function and provide support for immune challenges, especially during cold and flu season. It contains echinacea, one of the best-known botanicals used to boost the immune system, and propolis, a product of bee resin, which helps maintain normal inflammatory balance. Imu-Max contains 300 mg standardized Echinacea angustifolia and purpurea blend plus 150 mg propolis and vitamin C to pack an immune-boosting punch.
Both of our kid-tested and approved products will:
- Boost Immune Function in Children
- Provide Support for Immune Challenges
- Maintain Normal Inflammatory Balance
