How To Keep Your Kids Healthy This School Year
The kids are heading back to school, where germs are lurking around every corner and flourishing on everything they touch. It’s not only important to teach kids healthy habits to combat germs but to help keep their immune system strong.
There’s so much out there on the market, so how do you know what is best for your kids? I’m going to give you some helpful tips, and break down and share some high quality supplements that I have personally used to keep my family healthy all year long.
Encourage plenty of water-not juice or soda. Water is the cornerstone for all body functions.
How much sleep is your child getting? Children under 12 years old need at least 10 hours of sleep per day!
Encourage plenty of exercise, especially outdoors. Children should get at least 60 minutes of activity a day.
70% of the immune system is located in the digestive tract. Probiotics will help keep their guts healthy and maintain a strong immune system.
What factors can affect gut health for children?
- Food and diet: A diet high in processed foods, high in sugar and high in trans-fats can contribute to poor gastrointestinal health.1,2
- Stress: Adapting to changes like starting daycare or kindergarten, new family dynamics, and busy schedules may cause children to feel overwhelmed.
What are prebiotics and probiotics? Why are they important for children? Prebiotics nourish and support the growth and activity of healthy bacteria in the gastrointestinal tract – also known as the gut. They are different from probiotics, which are cultures of live bacteria that are widely believed to provide numerous benefits for human health.
Probiotics have shown to help maintain a healthy balance of microflora (bacteria) in the gut, promote important metabolic functions, and support a healthy immune system.
Postbiotics are the natural byproducts or metabolites of certain probiotic strains that support a healthy gut barrier by preferentially being used by intestinal cells for energy.
DNA Miracles® Flora Melts are a delicious dietary supplement for children, delivering probiotic and prebiotic support for digestive and immune health.* They provide a unique group of prebiotic functional starches paired with Lactospore®, a probiotic for optimal digestive and intestinal microflora health in children and adults.*
Each serving of Flora Melts features LactoSpore®†, a spore of the probiotic strain Bacillus coagulans, that provides strong immune and intestinal defense while surviving stomach acid and the harsh gastrointestinal environment. In addition, DNA Miracles Flora Melts contain one gram of soluble fiber and three different sources of prebiotics – a blend of Jerusalem artichoke, apple fiber and chicory root fiber – to promote optimal health. By offering three powerful, yet different prebiotic fibers, DNA Miracles Flora Melts also support healthy metabolism. *
Regular supplementation with a probiotic and prebiotic can support optimal gut, metabolic, immune, and overall health. ¥ So create a digestive health routine for you and your child – and make it fun with DNA Miracles! Enjoy Flora Melts as they magically dissolve on the tongue, or, simply mix our melt stick with food or beverage.
Healthy bellies make happy little miracles!
Providing your children with balanced nutrition is sometimes difficult. One such area of concern is providing children with adequate amounts of omega-3 fatty acids. According to the American Dietetic Association, 90% of children do not receive adequate amounts of these nutrients through their food choices. This is important, as omega-3 fatty acids are considered “essential,” since they are not produced by the body. Omega-3 fatty acids are especially important in childhood, when the brain – which is made up of approximately 60 percent fat – and immune system are developing.
Research suggests that Omega 3s appear to reduce symptoms of attention deficit and hyperactivity problems which affect an estimated 10 percent of U.S. children.
To help make sure your children are getting enough of these essential nutrients, give them DNA Miracles Essential Omega 3. Many omega 3 children’s products contain lesser amounts of the essential fatty acids eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), DNA Miracles Essential Omega 3 contains ideal amounts of EPA and DHA to properly support your child’s brain health and immune function. Plus, instead of giving your child a product that leaves an unpleasant fishy taste, DNA Miracles Essential Omega 3 is a delicious fruit flavored emulsion that is easy to take and will keep your children wanting more.
With no artificial colors, flavors or sweeteners, DNA Miracles Essential Omega 3 contain the omegas your children need to support their brain health and promote a healthy immune system. More of what your children need, less of what they don’t need. Because Every Child is a Miracle .
Fruits & Veggies
Encourage a diet rich in colorful fruits and veggies-not processed foods, which are high in sugar and artificial additives.
Making sure your children receive the proper amount of vitamins and minerals can be a challenge. Consumption of a multivitamin along with omega 3s has been shown to reduce pediatric visits by more than 36%.
With DNA Miracles Isotonix ® Multivitamin, you can rest easy knowing that you’re providing your child a complete multivitamin at an affordable price.* DNA Miracles Isotonix Multivitamin provides your children with 100 percent or more of 13 essential vitamins and minerals (more than some leading commercial children’s multivitamins), as well as beneficial phytonutrients your children need to help their growing bodies remain healthy and strong.*

In addition, DNA Miracles Isotonix Multivitamin provides your children the benefits of fruits and vegetables in a great-tasting, highly effective isotonic formula. This multivitamin is formulated so the nutrients your children need are delivered into their bodies fast and efficiently, maximizing the amount available to the body.* Parents always want to give their children the best.

Isotonix – the World’s Most Advanced Nutraceuticals
Isotonic, which means “same pressure,” bears the same chemical resemblance of the body’s blood, plasma and tears. All fluids in the body have a certain concentration, referred to as osmotic pressure. The body’s common osmotic pressure, which is isotonic, allows a consistent maintenance of body tissues. In order for a substance to be absorbed and used in the body’s metabolism, it must be transported in an isotonic state.
Isotonix dietary supplements are delivered in an isotonic solution. This means that the body has less work to do in obtaining maximum absorption. The isotonic state of the suspension allows nutrients to pass directly into the small intestine and be rapidly absorbed into the bloodstream.With Isotonix products, little nutritive value is lost, making the absorption of nutrients highly efficient while delivering maximum results.
Strong Immune System
Keeping your child’s body healthy can be considered a full-time job. Often, despite your best efforts, the daily demands of a busy lifestyle create a situation in which extra support for your child’s immune system becomes necessary.
With its specific combination of immune-boosting ingredients — including the clinically studied Wellmune® — and the unique delivery system offered only by Isotonix , DNA Miracles Isotonix Immune will not only provide maximum absorption, it will also prime the natural immune response. Using Isotonix Immune on a daily basis makes it that much easier for children to stay active, strong and healthy throughout the year.*
A healthy immune system helps form your child’s foundation of health and wellness. DNA Miracles Isotonix Immune is designed to support your child’s innate immune cells, promoting engagement of the natural immune response, and helping your child stay vital and energetic.*
