Viridian ViridiKid Multivitamin & Mineral 90 Capsules
Information: A good diet, plenty of fresh air and exercise plus lots of love and attention will generally keep your child healthy, bright and happy. But a good diet isn’t always easy to maintain in a child and assumes that your child enjoys eating leafy green foods and oily fish on a regular basis. No-one would suggest that stuffing your child full of vitamin pills is the solution either, but a balanced diet topped up with a good quality multivitamin can give reassurance to parents that their children are avoiding any obvious nutritional deficiencies. Additionally, from time-to-time, as children suffer with occasional colds and infections, earache, stomach problems and so on, natural remedies can be recommended once a proper diagnosis has been obtained from a qualified health practitioner. Choosing the right multi for your kids is a challenge. Cartoon shapes, blackberry flavours, syrups and powders are all on offer. ViridiKid Multiple from Viridian Nutrition offers a no-nonsense, no-nasties multivitamin which contains the Government recommended levels of nutrients for children, without the unnecessary additives contained in many other children’s vitamin products. ViridiKid Multiple is genuinely sugar-free with no hidden extras, no aspartame, saccharine or other sweeteners – not even fructose, just the vitamins and minerals your child needs each day in an easy-to-swallow, all-vegetarian/vegan capsule. ViridiKid Multiple is seriously formulated for long-term daily intake during the early years, the all-important pre- and post-pubescent transition and onwards into adulthood.
- Iron - Iron intake is frequently inadequate in infants, young children, and adolescents in early growth spurt phase. Research reveals that iron deficiency in children (4-14 yrs old) causes abnormal dopaminergic neurotransmission and may contribute to the pathophysiology of attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Iron needs are higher during adolescence because of increases in blood volume and muscle mass. Girl’s needs are further increased by menstrual losses
- Calcium - Calcium is involved in numerous vital functions throughout the body, including; bone building, protein and fat digestion, energy production, nerve transmission and neuro-muscular activity. Calcium is the most abundant mineral in the body, contributing to 1.5 to 2% of total body weight. Bones contain more than 99% of the body’s calcium.
- Magnesium - Magnesium is critical to many cellular functions including energy production, protein formation and cellular replication. Magnesium’s main function is in enzyme activation. Magnesium is predominantly deposited in the bone, the remainder residing in metabolically active tissues such as muscle, brain, heart, liver, and kidneys. Studies in children aged 6-11 years of age, using the combination of vitamin B6 and magnesium in combination have been shown to normalise the magnesium homeostasis, enhance the motility of the small and large intestine, improve attention, regulate emotional stability, normalise EEG parameters, and reduce anxiety.
- Zinc - Zinc is involved in nearly every aspect of immunity. When zinc levels are low, the number of T- Cells decreases, thymic hormone levels lower, and many white cell functions critical to the immune response cease. All these effects are reversible upon adequate zinc administration. Recent studies have demonstrated that zinc supplementation can significantly reduce the morbidity and mortality of apparently well-nourished children and shorten the time to recovery from acute infectious diseases. Many nutrients are involved within structural bone development and hormonal control mechanisms. Zinc provides a crucial role in both growth and hormonal regulation through its effects on calcitriol (1,25-dihdroxy-cholecalciferol) the active form of vitamin D. Several double blind studies have shown zinc yields similar results to tetracycline in superficial acne and superior results in deeper acne. Zinc is required for the effective release and utilisation of vitamin A from liver storage. Vitamin A is a highly beneficial nutrient in acne treatment protocols. Zinc is also an important co-factor for metabolism relevant to neurotransmitters, fatty acids, prostaglandins, and melatonin, and indirectly affects dopamine metabolism, believed to be intimately involved in attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Increased zinc is needed for growth and through puberty.
- Beta Carotene (D.Salina) - Carotenes represent the most widespread group of naturally occurring pigments in nature. There are over 600 carotenoids with only 30 to 50 having vitamin A activity. Carotenes are an intensely coloured (red and yellow) group of fat soluble compounds. Beta carotene would appear to have the highest pro-vitamin A activity. The natural source of carotenoids in this formula is derived from one of nature’s richest sources, the sea algae dunaliella salina. Prolonged vitamin A deficiency results in night blindness, increased rate of infection and the characteristic signs of follicular hyperkeratosis (build-up of cellular debris in the hair follicles, giving the skin a goose-bump appearance; occurs most on the back of the upper arm). Carotenoids exert immune-enhancing effects independent of any vitamin A activity. Oral beta carotene has been shown to significantly increase the frequency of T4 helper/inducer cells by 30% after 7 days. The T4 lymphocytes play a critical role in determining host immune status. Beta carotene appears to enhance thymus function and increase interferon’s stimulatory effects on anti-viral aspects of the immune system. Dietary intake, especially of antioxidant vitamins A, C, E, and the carotenoids, has been linked with the presence and severity of asthma.
- Vitamin B5 - Vitamin B5 (pantothenic acid) is found in varying amounts in virtually every food, hence its name derived from the Greek pantos, meaning everywhere. It is a water-soluble vitamin that plays a key role in the production of the adrenal hormones and formation of antibodies, aids in vitamin utilisation, and helps convert fats, carbohydrates and proteins into energy. Pantothenic acid, active in the synthesis of cholesterol and steroid hormones, may be useful in the treatment of acne. Research has shown noticeable improvements in decreasing sebum secretion, reduced frequency of eruptions, and improvements in lesion healing.
- Vitamin B3 - Nicotinic acid is produced from tryptophan in the body and is then converted into niacinamide. Nicotinic acid functions in the body as a component in the coenzymes nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD) and NADP, which are involved in approximately 200 enzyme processes. NADH is formed from NAD producing energy via ATP production. B3 as nicotinamide would appear to play a role in diabetes prevention. An intervention study in New Zealand using nicotinamide treatment showed a 50% reduction in the development of (insulin dependent diabetes) IDDM in a 5-year period.
- Choline - Choline is needed for cell membrane integrity and to facilitate the movement of fats in and out of cells. It is also a component of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine and is needed for normal brain functioning, particularly in infants. Although the human body can synthesize choline, additional amounts from the diet are considered essential under certain circumstances. Choline participates in many functions involving cellular components called phospholipids.
- Copper - Copper and zinc are involved in the production of super oxide dismutase (SOD). Copper deficiency results in iron deficiency anemia because copper is required in proper iron absorption and utilisation. Copper is also necessary for the activation of an enzyme lysyl oxidase, required for in the crosslinking of collagen and elastin, crucial for healthy skin, hair, bone, blood vessels and joints.
- Vitamin D - The most important role of fat-soluble vitamin D is maintaining blood levels of calcium, which it accomplishes by increasing absorption of calcium from food and reducing urinary calcium loss. Both effects keep calcium in the body and therefore spare the calcium that is stored in bones. When necessary, vitamin D transfers calcium from the bone into the bloodstream, which does not benefit bones. Periodontal diseases are bacterial infections that, if left untreated, may cause damage to the bone and even tooth loss. But perhaps even more serious, a number of infectious diseases have been linked with low levels of vitamin D, and it has been demonstrated that vitamin D can suppress pro-inflammatory cytokine production.
- Potassium - Both potassium and magnesium are crucially involved in energy metabolism. Potassium is an important electrolyte that functions in the maintenance of water balance and distribution, acid-base balance, muscle and nerve cell function, heart function, and kidney/adrenal function. Magnesium is second to potassium in terms of concentration within the body’s cells and is involved in over 300 enzymatic reactions in the body. Magnesium is involved in the activation of the sodium and potassium pump to regulate water balance. Potassium is essential for the conversion of blood sugar into glycogen. Exercising muscles use glycogen as a primary source of energy, thus fatigue and muscle weakness are the first signs of potassium deficiency.
- Vitamin E - Vitamin E is the most important fat-soluble antioxidant present in human tissues. It is found in the lipid-rich areas of cells such as in cell membranes and the brain. It is at these sites vitamin E acts to stabilise and protect against oxidative damage caused by free radicals, heavy metals, and environmental toxins. Vitamin E plays an important role in the health and integrity of the lipid-rich nerve cells. Vitamin E also supports immune function through its effects upon the thymus gland, and particularly during times of oxidative stress and chronic viral illnesses. The epidermis, which is the first line of defence against free radicals, contains a variety of antioxidants including the fat-soluble vitamin E and carotenoids, and the water-soluble vitamin C and glutathione.
- Manganese - The trace mineral manganese functions primarily as a component of the antioxidant enzyme superoxide dismutase (SOD). SOD prevents the damaging effects of the super oxide free radical from destroying cellular components.
- Chromium - Chromium functions in the body as a key constituent of the ‘glucose tolerance factor’. It works closely with insulin in facilitating the uptake of glucose into cells. Many controlled studies have confirmed chromium’s positive effects in non-insulin-dependent diabetes (NIDDM). Results have shown that supplemental chromium decreases fasting glucose levels, improves glucose tolerance, and lowers insulin levels. Good results have also been noted using supplemental chromium in hypoglycaemic cases. Chromium has been shown to aid weight control through its ability to increase the sensitivity of the body’s cells to the hormone insulin. Results have shown that chromium supplementation can promote an increase in lean body weight through fat loss and muscle gain. The first clinical trial into the effects of chromium supplementation in children with type 1 diabetes is now underway at the Childrens’ Hospital in Los Angeles. The study conducted by Nutrition 21, is supplying Chromax chromium picolinate for the study. The study sets out to see whether the addition of 600 mcg of chromium to the daily diet of patients with poorly controlled type 1 diabetes aged between 12- to 18-years will improve blood glucose and body weight.
- Inositol - Inositol is part of the vitamin B-complex. It is required for proper formation of cell membranes. Inositol affects nerve transmission and helps in transporting fats within the body.
- Vitamin B2 - Riboflavin functions in two important enzymes, flavin mononucleotide (FMN) and flavin adenine dinucleotide (FAD). These enzymes act as cofactors for a wide variety of oxidative enzyme systems, and are central to energy production, drug metabolism, and lipid metabolism.FAD plays a crucial role in energy production within the Kreb’s cycle, where it helps generate an enzyme converting succinate into fumarate.
- Vitamin B6 - Vitamin B6 is required for the proper functioning of more than 60 different enzymes and is involved in the formation of body proteins and structural compounds, neurotransmitters, red blood cells, and prostaglandins. Vitamin B6 is also critical in maintaining hormonal balance and proper immune function. Deficiency of vitamin B6 is characterised by depression, convulsions, glucose intolerance, anaemia, impaired nerve function, cracking of the lips and tongue, and seborrhea or eczema.
- Vitamin B1 - Thiamine in the form of thiamine diphosphate (TDP) is required for ATP production. It is essential in the conversion process of pyruvate through to Acetyl-CoA – this then feeds into the Kreb’s cycle. Nerve cells require vitamin B1 in order to function normally.
- Biotin - Biotin is a water soluble vitamin which works synergistically with other B vitamins. It is involved in the metabolism of carbohydrates, proteins and fats as well as helping to maintain healthy skin and nails.
- Vitamin K - A fat soluble vitamin required for the formation of several of the proteins, called ‘clotting factors’, which regulate blood clotting. Vitamin K is also required for the formation of some proteins which are important for the maintenance of healthy bones and teeth and in vivo biosynthesis by gut bacteria/flora.
- Iodine - Iodine is a trace element - only small amounts are needed to maintain good health. In the body, iodine is used to form thyroid hormones (thyroxine and tri-iodothyronine), which regulate metabolic rate. Recent research reveals that auditory disturbances may be present in iodine deficient children and that continuous iodine supplementation permanently improves the auditory thresholds of iodine deficient children.
- Folic Acid - The basic mechanism of action underlying folic acid is its role in cellular division and DNA synthesis. Without folic acid cells do not divide properly. Folate is also required for the regeneration of methionine from homocysteine and plays a key role as a ‘methyl-donor’. Folic acid exerts a mild anti-depressant effect and correcting deficiency has brought about dramatic results in mental and psychological symptoms in patients. The anti-depressant effects are due to its function as a methyl donor and increasing the brain content of serotonin, SAM (S-adenosyl-methionine), and BH4 (tetrahydrobiopterin). Studies linking hyperhomocysteinemia (HHCY) and B-vitamin deficiency to some health aspects in children have been accumulating. Low B-vitamin status in early life, even as early as the time of conception, may endanger the potential for new life and may negatively influence the health of the offspring. Pregnancy complications and poor pregnancy outcomes have been linked to elevated concentrations of total plasma homocysteine (tHcy) and low folate or vitamin B12 in infants.
- Molybdenum - Molybdenum is a trace mineral involved in functioning of several important enzymes in the body. Aids in carbohydrate and fat metabolism and helps in iron utilisation.
- Vitamin B12 - Vitamin B12 and its deficiency syndrome, pernicious anaemia, was recognised and described as early as 1855. Vitamin B12 is a bright red crystalline compound because of its high content of cobalt. Vitamin B12 works with folic acid in many processes, including the synthesis of DNA, red blood cells, and the myelin sheath (surrounding nerve cells) and thus may influence neurological aspects of autism. Autism is a behaviourally defined disorder of unknown aetiology that is thought to be influenced by genetic and environmental factors. High levels of homocysteine (tHcy) and oxidative stress are generally associated with neuropsychiatric disorders. A recent study shows that children with autism have higher levels of tHcy, which is negatively correlated with glutathione peroxidase (GPx) activity and suboptimal levels of vitamin B12.
