Salus® Kindervital® Multivitamin for children 500ml Iron-Free Liquid Multivitamins for Growing Bodies A pleasant tasting liquid supplement for children, Kindervital is a unique, balanced herbal tonic that supplies bone- and tissue-building vitamins and minerals such as calcium and magnesium that are important for growing children. Kindervital helps the body with the absorption and use of calcium, which is especially important for developing strong teeth and your child’s growing bones. The quality and quantity of bone laid down in childhood will strongly impact bone health later in life. In fact, 90% of bone mass is laid down by the age of 17. Kindervital contains vitamins A, B, C, D and E. The formula is iron-free, because iron competes directly with calcium for absorption. This delicious liquid supplement is made with carrots, wheat germ, rosehips, watercress, horsetail, nettle and spinach. The formula supports eye health and provides vitamins and antioxidants to promote strong immune function. Today, most children are not eating as nutritiously as they should. The typical modern diet has become saturated with processed, refined foods stripped of their nutrients with empty calories that contribute to childhood obesity.
