Vitamins for healthy teens
During pregnancy and babyhood, you are bombarded with information about nutrition and health. So much so it can sometimes become overwhelming. But as your child gets older, this info quickly dries up, until they become teenagers. And all of a sudden, not only are they not telling you what is going on, nobody else is either.
Yet experts think that during the teenage years bodies go through change just as strenuous as those first early months – it is partly why teens need so much sleep! Growing and changing every day, teenagers require a wide range of nutrients to maintain healthybones and muscles (vitamins C and D and calcium are a must for this), healthy skin and vision (vitamin A).
Why is my teen lacking in energy?
Has your teen ever complained that they are ‘sooooo exhausted’? It is extremely common for people of all ages, and especially teenagers, to be lacking in the vitamins and minerals needed for good energy levels. In addition to B vitamins, including B12, folic acid and biotin, all essential for normal energy yield (that is, breaking down consumed food into the energy we need to function), our Teen Multivit and Mineral also contains iron
Low iron levels are often seen in teenage girls prone to heavy periods (though all genders and ages are susceptible), causing lethargy, weakness, headaches and even dizzy spells. By taking an iron supplement alongside vitamin C – which helps absorption of this important mineral – your teen minimises the risk of iron deficiency.
Vitamins, teenage brains and good psychological health
The teenage brain is a complex, overloaded thing. In addition to the stress of homework and exams, it is also navigating the murky waters of new relationships, social media and all those things that teenagers worry about but us adults do not quite understand.
Certain vitamins such as B1 (Thiamine), B12 and Vitamin C contribute to normal psychological health. Zinc and iron are also important for maintaining normal cognitive function which is important for teens at school who want to perform well and are constantly trying to retain everything they learn!
