24 Organic Fruits and Veggies
As we know, fruits and vegetables are fundamental nutritional factors in a healthy diet. Kids Natural Calm Multi incorporates superfruits (organic pomegranate, açaí, goji and noni), fruits (apple, banana, blackberry, blueberry, cranberry, mango, orange, pineapple, rasp-berry, strawberry and tart cherry) and vegetables (beets, broccoli, carrot, collard greens, kale, peas, pumpkin, spinach and tomato). We took extra care to use organic produce to ensure no pesticide, herbicide or fungicide residues, chemical fertilizers or genetically modified ingredients were included in our formula.
Omega-3 DHA & EPA
Technically, docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) are biologically active omega-3 fatty acids. They are basic building blocks in cells and are needed throughout the entire body for good health. As children grow and develop, they require these fatty acids as essential components in their diets. Omega-3 DHA and EPA are an integral part of cell membranes and precursors of several important cellular messengers. DHA has been recognized as necessary for brain, visual and nervous system health and development.
The fish oil used in Kids Natural Calm Multi is sourced from the purest wild sardine and anchovy, fished in cold, pristine waters off South America where there are significantly less environmental impurities. It is the product of a healthy, fully sustainable fishery and is a renewable resource.
Calcium and Magnesium Balance
Calcium and magnesium are key nutrients that need to be in balance with each other in order for good health to be fully maintained. Calcium excites nerves, while magnesium calms them down. Calcium makes muscles contract. Magnesium is necessary for muscles to relax. You experience the tensing (calcium) and relaxing (magnesium) interaction of these two elements each time your heart beats, when you feel your pulse, and every time you breathe.
When we are under stress (and don’t think that stress applies only to adults), our cells—which in their resting state contain magnesium—go through a change. Calcium, normally outside the cells, enters the cells and the calcium level becomes high. This is the action state in which a muscle cell, for example, will contract and tense the muscle. The magnesium then pushes the calcium out of the cell and the cell is again in its resting, relaxed state.
