Want an easy tasty way to look after your child’s immune health?
We recommend Holland and Barrett’s Expert Kids Immune Chewable, a one-a-day, easy to consume multivitamin with vitamins and minerals, including B vitamins, selenium and copper, chosen for their links to all-round and immune system health, plus black elderberry concentrate for added support.
Vitamin D and zinc for immune systems
Here in the UK, vitamin D is in short supply. That is because, unlike other vital vits, it is not something we get much of from food. Instead, our body takes vitamin D from the sun’s rays, converting the warmth we feel on our skin into healthy bones and muscles, as well as by cells that make up your immune system.
Vitamin D is thought to play an important role in keeping us well by helping to cells to function normally when an immune response is required. Meanwhile,studies have also shown that zinc deficiency prevents cells involved in the immune response from functioning normally.
Our Exp Kids Immune Chewable is not just packed with traditional vitamins and minerals, it also contains four strains of ‘friendly’ bacteria – around one billion live bacteria in total. These have been clinically studied and are just an added bonus to your baby’s gut microbiome on top of a healthy immunity .
So vital, in fact, is the gut microbiome, that some experts believe that as much as 70% of our immune system is based in the gut.
Black elderberry for extra protection
Bursting with antioxidants, black elderberry is thought to be a great natural support for immunity. Helping to neutralise the effect of free radicals, which can otherwise harm our immune system, black elderberry is especially rich in flavonoids and anthocyanins, both of which scientists think help to protect cells from harm.
