Why Choose nutraMetrix DNA Miracles® Chewable Multivitamin
Children can sometimes be picky when it comes to eating healthily, which can result in an inadequate intake of the essential nutrients they need from their diet. With nutraMetrix DNA Miracles® Chewable Multivitamin, you can rest assured knowing that you’re providing your children with essential vitamins and minerals to support their healthy growth and development. Usually with children’s vitamins, there is a trade-off: a satisfactory amount of vitamins with an unpleasant taste, or a tasty flavor with less nutritional value, and plenty of excess sugar. Some children’s multivitamin products on the market today include a mere four or five vitamins. nutraMetrix DNA Miracles® Chewable Multivitamin provides your child with 15 key vitamins and minerals in each tasty mixed berry tablet! Included are vitamin D for the bones, and vitamins C and E, plus zinc, to support the immune system*. In addition, while many children’s multivitamins include lots of sugar and unnecessary binders and fillers, nutraMetrix DNA Miracles Chewable Multivitamin gives your children more of what they need, and less of what they don’t. Each tasty chewable has 1 gram of sugar – half the amount of leading children’s multivitamins on the market today – and contains no artificial colors or flavors. Make vitamin time your little miracle’s favorite time with the delicious nutraMetrix DNA Miracles Chewable Multivitamin mixed berry tablets!
nutraMetrix® DNA Miracles® Chewable Multivitamin
Beta-Carotene (Vitamin A Precursor) (5,000IU)
Vitamin A is a fat-soluble vitamin. Sources of vitamin A include organ meats (such as liver and kidney), egg yolks, butter, carrot juice, squash, sweet potatoes, spinach, peaches, fortified dairy products and cod liver oil. Vitamin A is also part of a family of compounds, including retinol, retinal and beta-carotene, The vitamin works to support the normal growth and repair of body tissue, and helps to promote normal bone growth and a healthy immune system. Beta- carotene is a nutrient from plants that the body converts into vitamin A.*
Vitamin C (Ascorbic acid) (60 mg)
Vitamin C, also known as ascorbic acid, is a water-soluble vitamin that has a number of biological functions. It is found in peppers (sweet, green, red, hot red and green chili), citrus fruits and brussel sprouts, cauliflower, cabbage, kale, collards, mustard greens, broccoli, spinach, guava, kiwi fruit, currants and strawberries. It is important to note that cooking destroys vitamin C activity and the body does not manufacture vitamin C on its own, nor does it store it. Therefore, vitamin C must be acquired through one’s diet or supplementation. Vitamin C works to promote normal tissue repair and healing. Additionally, vitamin C is integral in supporting a healthy immune system.*
Vitamin D3 (Cholecalciferol) (400 IU)
Vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin that is found in some foods and endogenously produced (by your body) when sunlight strikes the skin and activates vitamin D synthesis. The main function of vitamin D is to promote the normal regulation of serum calcium concentrations. Vitamin D supports the synthesis of calcium-binding proteins, promotes the absorption of calcium and phosphorus and supports the production of several proteins involved in calcium absorption and storage. Vitamin D works with calcium to promote hard, strong bones. It works to promote active transport of calcium out of the osteoblasts into the extra-cellular fluid and in the kidneys and promotes calcium and phosphate uptake by renal tubules. Vitamin D also promotes healthy growth and repair of tissues.*
Vitamin E (D-alpha-tocopheryl acetate) (30 IU)
Vitamin E is a fat-soluble vitamin proven to be a strong antioxidant. It promotes structural and functional maintenance of skeletal, cardiac, and smooth muscle. It also supports the normal formation of red blood cells, promotes healthy cardiovascular function and supports the immune system. The most valuable sources of dietary vitamin E include vegetable oils, margarine, nuts, seeds, avocados and wheat germ. Safflower oil contains large amounts of vitamin E (about two thirds of the RDA in ¼ cup) and there are trace amounts in corn oil and soybean oil. Vitamin E is actually a family of related compounds called tocopherols and tocotrienols. Vitamin E is available in natural and synthetic forms. The natural and synthetic forms are nearly identical, but the natural form of vitamin E is better absorbed and retained by the body. The natural form of alpha-tocopherol is known as "d-alpha tocopherol." The synthetic "dl-" form is the most common form found in dietary supplements. The main health benefit of supplemental vitamin E is support of immune health.*
Vitamin B1 (Thiamin) (1.5 mg)
Vitamin B1 is a water-soluble vitamin that supports the body’s ability to process carbohydrates, fat, and protein. Every cell of the body utilizes B1 to support the formation of adenosine triphosphate (ATP), the fuel the body uses to function. Thiamin supports the normal production of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine and gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA).*
Vitamin B2 (Riboflavin) (1.7mg)
Vitamin B2 is a water-soluble vitamin that promotes the body’s ability to process amino acids and fats, activate vitamin B6 and folic acid, and support the normal conversion of carbohydrates into adenosine triphosphate (ATP), the fuel the body uses to function. Vitamin B2 is found in liver, dairy products, dark green vegetables and some types of seafood. Vitamin B2 serves as a co-enzyme, working with other B vitamins. It supports normal human growth. It supports healthy growth of skin, nails and hair and supports the body’s processes in turning food into energy as a part of the electron transport chain, driving cellular energy on the micro-level. Vitamin B2 supports the breakdown of fats while functioning as a cofactor or helper to support the activation of B6 and folic acid. Vitamin B2 is water-soluble and can only be stored by the body in insignificant amounts; thus, it must be replenished daily.*
Niacin (Niacinamide) (20 mg)
Niacin is a water-soluble vitamin necessary for many aspects of health and growth. Niacin supports the proper functioning of the skin. Niacin promotes normal energy production as it works with vitamin B1 and vitamin B2 to support the release of energy from carbohydrates. As part of the vitamin B complex, niacin promotes the conversion of food to energy.*
Pyridoxal-5-Phosphate (Vitamin B6) (2 mg)
Poultry, fish, whole grains and bananas are the main dietary sources of vitamin B6. Vitamin B6 supports numerous metabolic pathways in the body. One specific function is that it supports the normal synthesis of neurotransmitters in the brain and peripheral nerve cells. B6 also promotes the normal production of glutathione, which is essential for detoxification. P5P helps promote the normal synthesis of neurotransmitters in the brain, supports the production and breakdown of many amino acids and also promotes the production of the hormones serotonin, melatonin, and dopamine, and it also assists in the maintenance of healthy red and white blood cells, It works to promotes normal hemoglobin synthesis (hemoglobin is the protein portion of red blood cells which carries oxygen throughout the body). Vitamin B6, when taken with folic acid, has been shown to promote optimal cardiovascular health. Pyridoxal-5-phosphate is the active form of vitamin B6, making it more bioavailable and ready to use by your body.*
Folate (Folic acid) (400 mcg)
Folic acid is mainly found in fruits and vegetables. Dark, leafy greens, oranges, orange juice, beans and peas are the best sources as well as Brewer’s yeast, which supplies additional B-vitamins. Folic acid boosts the benefits of vitamin B12 supplementation. Folic acid supports the normal utilization of amino acids and proteins. Scientific studies have found that when working in tandem with vitamin B12 folic acid, supports healthy cardiovascular and nervous systems. Folic acid is a vitamin that promotes normal cell replication and growth and supports the normal formation of building blocks of DNA, the body’s genetic information, and building blocks of RNA needed for protein synthesis in all cells.*
Methylcobalamin (Vitamin B12) (6 mcg)
Methylcobalamin is one of the naturally-occurring forms of vitamin B12 found in the human body. The liver must convert cyanocobalamin, the form of B12 most commonly used in supplements, into methylcobalamin, before it can be properly utilized by the body; methylcobalamin is more effective than non-active forms of vitamin B12. Methylcobalamin also promotes the normal formation of SAMe (S-adenosylmethionine), a nutrient that positively impacts mood. Vitamin B12 is naturally found in animal products, especially organ meats, such as liver, with small amounts derived from peanuts and fermented soy products, such as miso and tempeh. It is essential that vegetarians consume a vitamin B12 supplement to maintain optimal health. Vitamin B12, when ingested, is stored in the liver and other tissues for later use. It supports the maintenance of cells, especially those of the nervous system, bone marrow and intestinal tract. Vitamin B12 promotes normal homocysteine metabolism (homocysteine is an amino acid that is formed within the body). Normal homocysteine levels are important for maintaining cardiovascular health. Folate and B12, in their active coenzyme form, help to maintain healthy blood levels of homocysteine. Vitamin B12 itself is responsible for maintaining optimum energy levels as it plays a vital role in the Krebs energy cycle.*
Biotin (300 mcg)
Biotin, a water-soluble B vitamin, acts as a coenzyme to support the normal metabolism of protein, fats and carbohydrates. Biotin promotes healthy cell growth, the production of fatty acids, metabolism of fats and amino acids. It plays a role in the citric acid cycle, which is the process in which biochemical energy is generated during aerobic respiration. Biotin not only assists in various metabolic chemical conversions but also helps to transfer carbon dioxide. Biotin is also helpful in maintaining a steady blood sugar level. Biotin supports strong hair and nails.*
Pantothenic Acid (Vitamin B5) (10 mg)
Pantothenic acid (vitamin B5) is a water-soluble vitamin involved in the Kreb’s cycle of energy production and promotes the normal production of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine. When the nerve impulse originating in the brain arrives at the nerve ending, it releases a chemical called acetylcholine, which supports brain health. Pantothenic acid works together with vitamin B1, vitamin B2, and vitamin B3 to support the production of adenosine triphosphate (ATP), the fuel our body uses to function. Vitamin B5 also supports normal producing, transporting, and releasing of energy from fats.*
Zinc (Citrate) (15 mg)
Zinc is largely found in fortified cereals, red meats, eggs, poultry and certain seafood including oysters. It is an essential mineral that is a component of more than 300 enzymes that support normal growth in children, protein synthesis, cell reproduction, and immune function, among other functions. As a component of multiple enzymes and proteins, zinc plays a part in almost all biochemical pathways and physiological processes. More than 90 percent of the body’s zinc is stored in the bones and muscles, but zinc is also found in virtually all body tissues. Because zinc is involved in such a great number of enzymatic processes it has been found to support a large range of functions including energy production, growth, ollagen synthesis, bone strengthand carbohydrate metabolism.*
Selenium (Sodium Selenite) (70 mcg)
The best dietary sources of selenium include nutals, unrefined grains, brown rice, wheat germ, and seafood. In the body, selenium functions as part of an antioxidant enzyme called glutathione peroxidase as well as promoting normal growth. Selenium also supports the antioxidant effect of vitamin E and is often added to vitamin E supplements to protect cells from the effects of free radicals. It also supports brain health.*
Chromium (Picolinate) (120 mcg)
Chromium is found naturally in some cereals, meats, poultry, brewer’s yeast, broccoli, prunes mushrooms, fish and beer. Chromium is an essential trace mineral that help maintain normal blood sugar levels.*
What is the serving size for the nutraMetrix DNA Miracles® Chewable Multivitamin? How many can my child take at one time?
Children 2 & 3 years of age, chew one-half tablet daily under adult supervision. Tablet should be fully chewed or crushed. Children 4 years of age & older, chew one tablet daily. Not for children under 2 years of age.
Why do children need to take a multivitamin?
Everyone needs vitamins and minerals, because they help release energy from our food and help build muscle, bone and other vital tissue. Children need vitamins and minerals to maintain good health and normal growth. It is important to ensure that children receive all the vitamins and minerals they need every day, especially during their growing years. The body does not store all essential vitamins and minerals, therefore some need to be supplied on a regular basis.
What are common vitamins and minerals that often kids don’t get enough of through their diets?
Zinc and Vitamins A, C and E, are some common vitamins and minerals that children generally don’t get enough of. Zinc is a vital nutrient for proper growth and development. Vitamins A, C and E are also important vitamins during childhood and throughout life.
