Pinky can help to keep your children’s immunity strong this season
Autumn and winter always take a toll on our health. This is especially true for children – the younger and older ones alike. Their bodies have high nutritional needs that are often hard to meet at this time of the year.
We all know that vitamins are especially important in autumn and winter as they help to protect our bodies from all kinds of colds, flues and also various viruses. But they can also do much more...
Did you know, that:
• Vitamin B1 supports digestion and proper function of the heart, kidneys and the nervous system
• Vitamin B6 helps to make red blood cells
• Vitamin C reduces fatigue and contributes to the proper functioning of the immune system
• Vitamin E helps protect against oxidative stress, which can lead to chronic stress and allergies or heart and vascular diseases
Importance of a variety of vitamins
Since each type of vitamin benefits us a little differently, we require a whole range or spectrum of them in our daily diets. But to get our daily requirement, we would have to eat a lot of different fruits, vegetables as well as other foods. And getting our children to eat a varied diet every day is easier said than done.
Pinky may be the solution
Akuna’s multi-vitamin and multi-mineral drink Pinky may just be the answer your household needs. Especially designed for children and teens, Pinky contains the daily nutritional requirements for those age groups, including:
• vitamin C,
• vitamin E,
• vitamin B1,
• vitamin B5,
• vitamin B6
• and vitamin B12.
Nutrients for proper development
Although vitamins help prevent various diseases, they are not enough on their own, since a child's body is always growing and needs a number of other nutrients as well to develop properly.
This is why Pinky contains additional nutrients besides vitamins, such as:
• and copper.
Why are these nutrients essential? For strong bones and a healthy brain
Calcium, for example, is absolutely essential for the proper growth of bones and teeth. A calcium deficiency can, among other things, lead to children's tooth decay and result in the development of brittle bones.
Iodine, in turn, is important for the healthy development of the brain. According to scientists, an iodine deficiency is reflected in lower intelligence of children and can cause behavioral disorders, such as hyperactivity.
Sufficient iron intake is also needed for the proper development of the brain as well as other organs. Children aged 7 to 9 years of age have the same iron intake requirements as adult men.
Copper is also very important. It is involved in the building of bones; it is a component of collagen, which is essential for healthy joints, and together with iron supports haematopoiesis. Additionally, it can improve sugar utilization - which is often essential for children.
