Supplement Spotlight: Back to School

back to school

back to schoolThe beginning of fall means heading back to school, and even now the cooler air makes me want to buy spiral notebooks. Those of you with kids may feel like you have a lot on your plate this time of year though.

After all, this is when you have to get back to shuttling your children to and from school and soccer games. This is when you have to remember your math skills to help your kids with algebra homework.

Nutrition for Picky Eaters

Kids are notoriously picky eaters, so it’s not easy to make sure they get all of the nutrition they need from food alone. For children two years of age and older, Usanimals™ can help fill in the gaps.

Though it may seem like tykes are full of endless energy, lack of proper nutrition can leave them feeling drained, which can mean less social interaction and less participation in class. That’s why Usanimals provides a wide range of vitamins, minerals, and phytonutrients specifically for active, growing children.

You also want to make sure your child gets the right nutrition to support their brain health. Usanimals provides many B vitamins, such as folate, B6, and B12, which are important to healthy brain function.*

As a little extra incentive, Usanimals are printed with fun animals shapes, and come in a natural wild-berry flavor, so taking vitamins will never feel like a chore.

Healthy Teens Need Vitamins

Teenagers have no problem eating—nachos and pizza were pretty popular choices when I was in high school. But salad? Fresh veggies? Not so much.

This is why a quality supplement formulated specifically for teenagers is a great idea.

Body Rox™ contains loads of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants for your growing teen.

Though today’s young scholars probably don’t know anything about Ferris Bueller, they have definitely thought about faking illness to skip out on school. Body Rox™ is loaded with vitamins such as A, C, and E to support healthy immune function*—so your teen will have no excuses on Monday mornings.

Teen Playing SoccerTrack, the swim team, and other after-school sports can also be pretty demanding for young adults. Antioxidants can be helpful for handling increased free radical production caused by intense exercise, which is priceless when preparing for the big game.

Both in school and out, teens want healthy-looking skin. Beta carotene and carotenoids, such as lutein and lycopene, along with vitamins C and E, are all important for skin health.*

If your teenager brushes off all of the other reasons to take Body Rox, just remind them that a daily dose may help them look great on prom night.

For a strong skeletal structure later in life, it’s important to lay a solid foundation in your teenage years. Support strong bones with MagneCal D Chewable. It contains calcium, magnesium, and vitamin D for strong bones.*

Even though the long summer vacation is over, there’s no excuse to put health on the back burner. Make sure your children are taking care of their health with USANA—no matter how old they are.
