Back-To-School With Brain Power

by Kara McNabb, N.H.E.

Boating, beaches and lazy summer days are over. It’s back-to-work and back-to-school. At herbs etc, that means it’s time to give our wee ones, tweens, and teens an extra boost of brain-power and immune support with Nature’s Sunshine.

While your children soak up new knowledge, their brains need extra nourishment with vitamins, minerals and essential fatty acids. Give ‘em butter, oils and healthy fats in addition to Sunshine Heroes Omega-3 with DHA. Sunshine Heroes Multiple Vitamin & Mineral provides your child with nutrients, especially if they’re a picky-eater, have high activity levels or don’t eat regular, whole-food meals. Dr. Baker says children who suffer from dry brain would feel better, behave and act better with 2 – 4 of these per day. (She even takes them herself!)

Gut health is key to brain health, and it’s also imperative for a strong immune system. Several chewable products help support your little ones’ digestive health and immune systems.

Sunshine Heroes Whole Food Papayazyme Enzymes break down fats, carbs and protein into nutrients that can be absorbed and used to build developing body systems.

Sunshine Heroes Probiotic PowerProbiotics aid in digestion, absorption of nutrients and help maintain a proper balance of proper intestinal flora, which leads to stronger immune systems and minimizes food allergies.

Sunshine Heroes Calcium Plus D3You know calcium as a bone builder, but it can’t make strong teeth and bones without vitamin D3 and phosphorous. Did you know phosphorous is a key mineral needed for brain power? And, that D3 plays a vital part in maintaining innate immunity? With the gray winter months limiting our sunshine exposure, supplementing with D3 is a necessity in Michigan.

Sunshine Heroes Elderberry Immune Fight colds and flu with the power of herbal antivirals and immune system strength. With the antiviral properties of elderberry, vitamin C derived from astragalus, and the benefits of echinacea, reishi and maitake mushroom, this is a potent blend to have on-hand as germs fly around the classroom.
