GNLD Vita Guard antioxidant nutrients supplement for children

GNLD Vita Guard antioxidants for children

As everyone knows, oxygen is necessary for life. Unfortunately, it’s also a very reactive chemical, producing free radicals in our cells.

Think of free radicals as small, unstable bits of a molecule, which can’t exist on their own. So they very energetically chase around, looking for a partner. After they’ve united with a partner molecule, they’re no longer unstable, and their energetic chasing around stops.

While they’re looking for a partner, free radicals can latch onto vital structures, contributing to cellular deterioration and disease. For example, if they latch onto the DNA in a cell, the DNA can undergo changes that could lead to cancer.

Some free radicals are a necessary part of our chemical and metabolic processes, but the level of free radicals is carefully controlled, being kept at a healthy level by a variety of antioxidants.

Some of the antioxidants are produced in our bodies… that is, if we have the necessary building blocks, like vitamins, minerals, and amino acids. A good insurance policy for the building blocks is taking a daily multivitamin/ multimineral, like GNLD’s Formula IV Plus for adults, or Vita Squares for children.

Other antioxidants are obtained from the food we eat… if we’re eating the foods rich in antioxidants. Those foods are the green leafy vegetables like spinach, cruciferous vegetables like broccoli, and the colourful vegetables and fruits like tomatoes, apricots, and strawberries.

If you’re going to be eating fruits and vegetables, you might as well choose the ones that give you most antioxidant benefit. Checkout how your choices measure up.

Antioxidants in food come in two basic varieties… those that are water soluble, protecting the watery fluids in and around our cells, and those that are lipid-soluble, protecting the parts of our cells that are composed of fats, like the cell membranes.

Water-soluble antioxidants are known as flavonoids, and fat-soluble antioxidants are called carotenoids. We need a daily supply of both groups to stay healthy.

Who needs antioxidants?

Doesn’t matter if cells are young or old… free radicals can harm them. In other words, everyone needs antioxidants.

Apart from the free radicals they get from environmental pollution like exhaust fumes, pesticides, and tobacco smoke, children make lots of free radicals themselves.

They’re always on the go, using tons of oxygen to fuel their high metabolic rates and energy. And all that activity produces lots of free radicals inside their young cells.

But children are notoriously fussy eaters, and many of them simply don’t eat a daily variety of antioxidant fruits and vegetables, so they’re often lacking in protective flavonoids and carotenoids.

GNLD Vita Guard to the rescue!

For optimal cellular protection of children’s young cells, Vita Guard contains…

* A broad spectrum of flavonoids from naturally occurring whole foods: cranberries, green tea, mixed berries, lemons and oranges.

* Vitamin C to work together with flavonoids to protect the watery portions of cells

* Carotenoids from naturally occurring whole foods: carrots, apricots, peaches, strawberries and tomatoes.

* All 8 members of the vitamin E family, plus Vitamin A, working hand-in-hand with carotenoids to protect the lipid parts of cells

* The minerals zinc and selenium, which are key components of the body’s natural antioxidant enzyme systems

* No sucrose… Vita Guard is sweetened with natural fructose and concentrates of grape, orange, and apple

* No artificial colours

* No preservatives

When can children have it?

Your children can begin getting the benefits of antioxidant protection as soon as they’re old enough to drink from a child’s two-handled cup.

Simply crush one delicious tablet into their drink… preferably a drink of GNLD Nutrishake.

By the way, chewable GNLD Vita Guard are great for adults who find it difficult to swallow tablets or capsules. They dissolve easily in the mouth… and they’re delicious!
