With generations of experience as the multivitamin specialist for kids, we’ve learned one very important thing: to achieve normal growth by building healthy muscle, bone, blood and vital tissues, kids need certain key vitamins and minerals replenished every single day. Flintstones keeps right up with their daily needs by helping replenish those essential nutrients to support five areas of health:
Vitamins support normal growth and development, and help cells and organs do their jobs. Some vitamins (like A, D, E and K) are stored by the body, but others (like vitamin C and the B vitamins) are not and need to be replenished every day in a growing child.
Minerals are substances the body uses to build bones, make hormones, and regulate the heartbeat. You need larger amounts of some minerals , like calcium, and small amounts of trace minerals like iron, copper, iodine and zinc.
Every day you’re exposed to cell-damaging molecules (called “free radicals”) generated by pollution, smoke, sunlight, and even your own body when you work out hard or convert food to energy.
Antioxidants, such as Vitamins C, E, and A, help neutralize these damaging effects, and may help reduce the risk for certain cancers and heart disease. Diets high in vegetables and fruits are good sources of antioxidants.
