What are WellKid Original Smart Chewable Multivitamins?

Healthy growth is vital during the first 12 years of a child's life. Rapid development of bones, muscles, blood and the brain mean that children have a high nutrient requirement in relation to their body size. Meeting those requirements can be a challenge. Sometimes it is difficult to ensure kids are getting all the nutrients they need every day. WellKid chewable tablets have been produced with children's needs in mind. Each great tasting chewable tablet provides a comprehensive range of 21 essential nutrients including Omega-3, vitamins A, C, D, E and the minerals magnesium, iron and zinc to help safeguard your child's nutritional intake.

The WellKid Chewable formula includes essential vitamins such as A, C & D (supplementation of these vitamins is recommended by Government experts), minerals such as zinc and selenium, plus B-complex vitamins which together may help to maintain a child's all round health, immune system defence and energy release.

WellKid Chewable include vitamin D3 and minerals such as magnesium and zinc to help support the health of rapidly growing bones and teeth.

During childhood there is an increased demand for calcium to meet the needs of rapidly growing bones. The absorption of calcium from the food we eat, into the blood, is carefully controlled by the body and is influenced by a number of other key nutrients including vitamin D, magnesium and zinc.

For mothers particularly concerned about the bone health of their children we recommend Osteocare, available in chewable tablet or liquid form, which can be taken alongside WellKid.

With so much focus on the role of Omega-3 fatty acids in brain function, the important role of essential minerals has been largely overlooked
As well as Omega-3, WellKid Chewable includes iron and zinc which also play a role in helping to maintain healthy brain function. Iron is known to be essential for normal brain function and is especially important in relation to brain development, learning and memory. Iron is an essential part of the haemoglobin found in red blood cells.

It facilitates the delivery of oxygen from the lungs to all body tissues including the brain. Iron is also a cofactor for several enzymes involved in energy metabolism.

As well as learning and behaviour, zinc is involved in many body processes including DNA and RNA synthesis, protein and carbohydrate metabolism, bone growth, integrity of the skin, a co-factor in many enzymes and also plays an important role in the immune system.

WellKid Chewable, as well as being a balanced multivitamin for kids also provides a source of omega-3 fatty acids derived from flaxseed oil. Many scientific studies have shown that Omega-3 fatty acids may help maintain healthy brain function and vision. Vegetarian flaxseed oil is a rich source of Omega-3 alpha linolenic acid. The body naturally converts this into DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) and EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid). DHA is needed because it plays a structural role in the cells of the central nervous system. EPA is required because it is essential for optimal brain function and cell signalling (when nerve cells communicate with each other).

Iron, vitamin B12 and folic acid are essential for haemoglobin and healthy blood formation, the body's transport system for nutrients and oxygen.

Government surveys have indicated that children's diets can be low in certain nutrients including iron. This is especially true for vegetarians as iron from non-meat sources is not as easily absorbed by the body. WellKid Chewable tablets are suitable for vegetarians and so are an ideal way of helping to ensure your child receives enough iron.
