Vitamin C Well-known as a primary anti-oxidant, Vitamin C also promotes healthy immune functions.* Daily use may help to maintain and improve overall health. Vitamin C may provide protection against acute infection* and help to reduce susceptibility to recurrent colds,* flus* and allergies.*
Multi Vitamin & Minerals The spectrum of essential nutrients supports healthy development, strong immune function,* emotional and mental vitality.* Research shows that one of the fundamental reasons for the decline in children?s health and immunity is the decline in the nutritional content and value of their diet. Supplementing a child?s diet is the wisest way to ensure that all nutritional needs are fulfilled.
Essential Fatty Acids ChildLife?s Essential Fatty Acids supplies the optimum balance of Omega 3 and 6 fatty acids. These nutrients are necessary on a daily basis and cannot be manufactured by the body. EFAs are especially necessary in growing children for healthy skin, intelligence and immune function.* They are critically important for proper neuronal development* as 50% of a child?s brain is built from and by the Essential Fatty Acids.
Colostrum 4 Kids ChildLife?s Colostrum with Probiotics provides Nature?s ultimate formula for enhancing a child?s health, vitality, immune and digestive strength.* It is the only formula for children that contains Colostrum prepared with probiotics. This combination creates a very unique product for enhancing both immune system* and digestive strength.

The first and only complete liquid nutritional program formulated specifically for infants & children, by Homeopathic Pediatrician Dr. Murray Clarke. Today?s children face unprecedented challenges from two very important areas. On one hand, the nutritional value of the food we eat decreases as the nutritional content of the soil is depleted through time and modern farming methods. On the other hand, the rapid increase in environmental pollution and toxic burden creates an increased need for these nutrients, the vitamins and minerals that protect, nourish and sustain a child's natural, healthy development. Eat right and support your child?s development with ChildLife formulas.
