Children are more prone to getting infections than adults. Their immune system is still developing, and it is difficult to get them to understand and practice proper hygiene. They get exposed to more infections due to their close proximity with other children and adults.
There is also an increasing rate of allergies among children. They happen when the immune system fights harmless foreign substances called allergens, such as dust mites, pollen, pet dander, and food.
The Dr. Rath Kids Immune Essentials formula contains the important micronutrients to support proper functions of the developing immune system.
Vitamin C is the most essential antioxidant to improve immunity and it is not produced in our bodies. In addition to enhancing function of the immune cells, vitamin C also improves the immunity by strengthening the physical barriers of infection such as the mucosal lining of the nose or epithelial cells in the skin. Regular supplementation of vitamin C may also help in reducing the duration of illness.
Vitamin D can modulate the immune system responses, both innate and adaptive, and thus may play an important role in the development, severity and course of various allergies. It is also known to protect against viruses and bacteria affecting the upper respiratory tract as well as to provide antioxidant and anti-inflammatory protection.
Zinc is also useful in strengthening the immune function by increasing activity of the white blood cells. It can prevent replication of viruses in the nasal passages and may help in reducing the chances or severity of respiratory infections. It is also known for its regulatory role in allergic responses.
Proprietary Immune and Seasonal Support Blend is a combination of guava leaf extract, citrus bioflavonoids, elderberry extract, bromelain, and quercetin. These plant extracts are known for their immune-modulating and antiviral and antioxidant properties which can be especially helpful in limiting the respiratory symptoms.
All the ingredients in the Dr. Rath Kids Immune Essentials formula are derived from quality organic sources and the chewable tablets are kid-approved grape flavor.
