How it works

Busy, growing children need a healthy, nutritious diet based on plenty of fresh produce to provide them with the fuel and nutrients they need. Support your child’s nutritional intake of key vitamins and minerals with Oriental Botanicals Kids’ Nutrient Ninja, a delicious-tasting multivitamin specially formulated for growing kids.

Kids’ Nutrient Ninja contains 25 nutritionals, including vitamins, minerals, bioflavonoids, betacarotene and lutein. Read on to learn more about key ingredients in this comprehensive formula.

Iodine and selenium support kids’ growth and development

Iodine supports children’s normal growth and development, but unfortunately is sometimes present in only low levels in our food as the soil in some parts of Australia is iodine-deficient*.

The best dietary sources are foods from the sea – think fish, shellfish, seaweed and sea salt (although kids should only consume salt in very small quantities). It’s also added to commercially produced bread.

If your child doesn’t consume these foods on a regular basis, taking a multivitamin may help to support their nutritional intake.

Selenium is another trace mineral that supports kids’ development and growth, so is a valuable inclusion in a children’s multivitamin formula.

Iron supports kids’ cognitive development

During childhood, cognition (the ability to learn, understand and reason things out) develops quickly. Iron supports kids’ cognitive development.

Unless they’re vegan, your child’s diet contains iron in two different forms: haem iron, from animal-based foods like meat and eggs, and non-haem iron from vegetarian sources like leafy green vegetables. Of these, haem iron is the more readily absorbed and utilised.

Fusion Kids’ Nutrient Ninja contains iron as ferrous fumarate, which is more readily absorbed than some other types of iron (such as iron sulfate).

Choline is another nutrient that supports children’s brain and nervous system development, where it works by aiding in the production of neurotransmitters (compounds that act as chemical messengers in the brain and nervous system).

Vitamins for healthy bones and teeth

Vitamins A, D3 and K2 maintain healthy bone development in 2 to 12 year olds, and are also involved in the growth of healthy teeth.

For example, vitamin K2 supports the mineralisation of the teeth, which is the process in which minerals like calcium are incorporated into their structure to make them strong and hard.

B-vitamins and energy production

Does your child have all the energy they need to get them though a busy day? Whether they’re at home, kindy or school, their cells are producing lots of energy to keep them going! The B-group vitamins B1, B2, B3, B6 and B12 support children’s energy production as well as their healthy growth and development.

Zinc supports a healthy appetite

Zinc is found in a wide variety of foods, but like iron, is more readily absorbed from animal foods such as meat, eggs and seafood than it is from plant-based foods like legumes, grains, nuts and seeds.

Taking a zinc supplement maintains a healthy appetite in children whose diets provide inadequate amounts of zinc.

Ziziphus: traditionally used to calm kids’ nervous tension

The herb ziziphus is also known by the names red date and jujube. It has a long history of traditional use in Chinese medicine for relieving children’s nervous tension and helping to keep them mentally calm.

In Chinese medicine, ziziphus is also traditionally used to relieve loss of appetite by nourishing the spleen.
