Your child’s body cannot produce all the vitamins it needs to function properly, they have to eat them. An easy enough task you say, but with the confusing labelling on manufactured and processed foods, it’s difficult for parents to really know if what they are feeding their children is truly going to benefit their health now and into their future. Vitamins are organic nutrients essential for life and your child needs them to ensure they enjoy the best health possible.   Nutritional Deficiencies A nutritional deficiency occurs either because the body doesn’t receive enough nutrients in the food they eat or because of poor...

Fun Facts of Essential Fatty Acids Essential fatty acids (EFAs) are beneficial fats, essential in maintaining good health. Since EFAs cannot be made in the body, they must be ingested daily, through diet and supplementation. There are two families of EFAs: omega-3 and omega-6. • Omega-3 EFAs are crucial to maintain optimal health. Small amounts of omega-6 EFAs are important for physiology. Excessive omega-6 EFAs may lead to increased inflammation and development of chronic disease. A Western diet is already typically higher in omega-6 EFAs, so focusing on adequate intake of omega-3 EFAs is important to guarantee good health. How omega-3 essential fatty acids Boost Children's Health EFAs...

Feeling seen, heard and supported during times of struggle has been shown to enhance patient immune function (p<0.001). In a meta-analysis and systematic review of 56 randomised-controlled clinical trials, psychological support provided to 4,060 patients (e.g. cognitive-behavioural counselling) led to a 14.7% improvement in systemic immune function.1 Such clinical outcomes were evidenced with higher immune cell counts (CD+4 lymphocytes), as well as an 18% decrease in pro-inflammatory cytokines (interleukin-6) associated with weakened immune function. These results persisted for six months following treatment, evidencing the therapeutic value of interpersonal support to promote healthy immune function. In obese patients, reducing body mass index (BMI)...

The word vitamin derives in part from ‘vita’ meaning ‘life.  Vitamins are vital for life. Vitamins fall into two categories: Water-soluble & Fat-soluble Water-Soluble Vitamins Water-soluble vitamins include vitamin C, choline and all the B complex vitamins.  They are classed as water-soluble because they dissolve in water before being absorbed into the bloodstream.  They are generally nontoxic because they do not get stored.  Instead, the body absorbs the vitamins it requires and excretes what is not needed as waste product in the urine.  Therefore, water-soluble vitamins need to be replenished every day. Fat-Soluble Vitamins Fat-soluble vitamins include vitamins A, D, E and K; they dissolve...
