Fast facts about
children’s chewable Vita Guard
Free radicals can harm cells, be they young or old. This damage may accumulate and manifest as threats to the body’s well-being later in life. The earlier a person begins consuming a diet rich in antioxidants from whole foods and whole-food supplements, the greater the protection from free-radical damage. Benefits may show up in childhood in the form of a stronger defence system, or they may manifest themselves during adulthood as slowed onset of the effects of aging. Vita Guard delivers a broad spectrum of whole-food antioxidants to help protect cells and tissues. It’s an investment worth making to maximize your child’s chances for optimal well-being, both now and in the future.

Why antioxidant supplements for children?

  • To help provide antioxidant nutrients that protect cells.
  • To help protect children’s delicate tissues and organs at a time when the rapid metabolic rate necessary to support tremendous growth and development is also generating free radicals.
  • To help support immature defence systems, which in childhood are called upon to respond to some of their greatest challenges.
  • To help protect cells from oxidative damage spurred by children’s high levels of physical activity.
  • To help counter free radicals generated by sunlight, smog, ozone, pesticides, food additives, cigarette smoke, drugs and other substances to which children are routinely exposed.
  • To fill nutritional gaps that are the rule rather than the exception in the diets of children, the majority of whom do not eat the 5-9 daily servings of fruits and vegetables that health authorities recommend for optimal well-being.
