As we head into the cold and flu season, let’s take a look in our medicine cabinets to make sure we’re ready and best equipped to support our children.  While busy at school and spending less time outside, our kiddos are more vulnerable to illness during the winter months.   Besides more frequent hand washing, drinking lots of water, and good rest, consider supporting your children’s immune system with Kindermune.

Kindermune is our Product Spotlight item for this winter.  It is a cherry flavored chewable wafer with ingredients that help with both immediate and long-lasting immunity.  In addition to well-known immune boosting ingredients like vitamins C and E, zinc, Echinacea and elderberry, Kindermune also contains lesser known immune boosters like Shitake mushroom, lysine and bioflavonoids.

One of Kindermune’s main mechanisms of action is to maintain a robust white blood cell count and activity.  White blood cells are the cells of the immune system that defend against infection.  Kindermune is one of the few children’s products on the market that contain glandular extracts.  Glandular extracts provide deep tonifying support while gently stimulating the corresponding glands.  Kindermune contains both glandular thymus and pituitary extracts, which are important in a powerful and precise immune response.

Remember, more important than any pill is the body it is put into.  Did you know that 70% of the immune system is in the GI tract? When children are repeatedly barraged with sugar, preservatives, additives and ingredients they may be sensitive to, their digestion is compromised and inflammation increases.  This makes defending oneself against viruses and bacteria much more difficult!  Kindermune offers digestive support with digestive enzymes.

Perhaps the best part is that Kindermune is sweetened with xylitol, another immune booster!  Get ready for your kids to be asking for more.
