Can Vitamins Support My Kids’ Learning and Brain Development?

One of the simplest things you can do to support the cognitive development of your children is to give them a high quality daily multivitamin.

  • A recent study of children ages 8-14 found that the children given a daily multivitamin everyday did better on attention tests than children who were not.2

Making sure your kids get enough of the well-balanced vitamins and minerals they need everyday is critically important during the rapid brain growth and development of childhood.  Attention, focus, problem solving, memory—all of these cognitive tasks require vitamins and minerals.

  • Studies show even borderline vitamin inadequacies have been linked to cognitive changes in adolescents.1

Furthermore, many kids have increased nutritional needs due to certain conditions like ADD/ADHD, asthma, allergies and autism.

Today’s multivitamins for children come in many different forms—including liquids, chewables, gummies, and powders. As is the case for all supplements, the quality available varies widely and depends on the ingredients used and how well absorbed they are.

Be sure to read the labels carefully. In general it is difficult to get the quantities of nutrients a child needs for optimal health into a gummy. Also try to avoid ingredients like sugar, high fructose corn syrup, artificial colors or sweeteners, and binders. These all detract from the overall quality of a multivitamin.

The most innovative and effective children’s daily multivitamins are often in the effervescent form. Effervescent multivitamins are packets of powder that mix with water to create a tasty drink that kids like, and research shows they offer superior absorption.

Of course, any parent knows that kids will only take something they like and that tastes good. But the last place kids need more sugar is in their daily multivitamins, so look for multivitamins that use stevia.  Stevia is a healthy natural sweetener that makes an excellent alternative to sugar and artificial sweeteners.

Children’s Oxylent is a stevia-sweetened effervescent children’s multivitamin that provides a complete and well-balanced panel of the highest-quality vitamins and minerals to support healthy development—with no sugar, GMOs, dairy, gluten, or anything artificial. And kids love the Bubbly Berry Punch taste!
