Food supplements for health of children
Food supplements for health of children, an important moment in the life of a family. As mothers, all women worry for our children and we want what is best for them, right? This means that we want them to be healthy as well, especially now, in the season of the flues. But what does that cost us as parents?
Talking about health, we want to make the best for our little sweethearts and this is prevention. As a health consultant I see how important it is for children to be given strong food that helps them with a strong immune system and sustainability against viruses and infections. Don’t think you are helpless against disease! As much as our human power and ability allow us, we have options for an action which each one of us can take, and that is to search for a solution in nature!
It is fashionable today to buy bio products from bio stores and to search for bio production, and that is the right thing to do in my opinion. Despite all the arguing regarding the organic source of foods and food supplements that are advertised to us as “pure”, it makes sense to me to continue in this direction because it is has perspective for us and our children.
What do I recommend to parents who want to have healthy children?
There are a few food supplements you can find from various sources and that could benefit positively your child’s health:
Beestings from cows. Beestings is the first milk of the cow. It is very nutritious and more powerful than the one from a human. The beestings contains more antibodies, it is close to the human colostrum which makes it appropriate for intake by people. A lot of parents and mostly mothers know it and use it, and they also see the results. But how do we know which one to choose?
A common rule you can apply is to search for beestings that was dried in the most delicate for processing animal products way – 72˚C, in the form of capsules. Now everyone knows that processing food and food supplements at high temperature destroys much of the nutritious content in it. Why capsules? The capsules contain substances that merge the content so that it can be shaped as a pill and these substances are often harmful, not to mention that the production of pills also includes high temperature processing (roasting).
So, how nutritious can they actually be in this way then? Another important criterion is the form of the product – is it liquid or powder. How much time can the milk last in the fridge without preservatives? Well, the same logic applies for beestings as well. Small children love it because it tastes like milk and is slightly sweet, so that they can also chew it (and with pleasure!!!) or drink it dissolved in water. For those parents who are vegans for moral reasons you can search for information regarding the way the beestings is taken and how the animals are treated.
AFA algae. (AFA is the abbreviation from their Latin name – Aphanizomenon Flos-Aquae). They enter the market rapidly in Europe and not without a good reason. This type of algae is extremely nutritious. They are rich in antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, micro and macro elements, amino acids. They are also a natural source for the vitamins E, B12, B5, C and pro vitamin A (beta carotene). As a result with an extremely small quantity of AFA per day (half or one gram) the body gets a very large quantity of quality nutritious substances that can be digested entirely and assimilated, including by small children, which makes them especially appropriate for kids. The criteria for choice of products containing AFA are the same as the ones for choosing beestings – dried at a low temperature, in a capsule, no preservatives or additives.
Omega. Omega 3, 6, 7 and 9 are very important for the normal functioning of the body. If we want them to be really useful and digestible, we should consider taking them from natural sources like nuts, seeds and herbs that are wild or bio production, and of course obtained through cold pressing. This is how most of the useful substances can be preserved. It is also important to consider that omega 3, 6 and 9 need to be taken in a specific proportion which is easiest to observe by taking a product that contains all of these three in the right proportion. They have a positive effect on the common condition of the body, the heart, skin, neural system, the hormonal balance and much more.
The health of our children is of extreme importance to us, the adults, so it is up to us to take the right decisions for them. The beestings, the AFA algae and omega are also appropriate for vegans and vegetarians if you prefer these diets for your children. I can help you with individual consultations and prepare a program especially for you.
