LIMITED TIME FREE ITEM OPPORTUNITY at the bottom of the page--so keep reading........The company I do most of our family's ordering from, Natures Sunshine, has a new children's product line out called SUNSHINE HEROS! Sunshine Heros soft-chew products include the "fruit snack texture and bite" of a commercial gummi multivitamin, but with the potent-packed nutrients of a wholefoods vitamin, and without the sugar, chemical coloring and preservatives! Why pay extra money to get a vitamin when there are "perfectly good" vitamins available at cheaper prices on my grocery store shelves? HERE'S YOUR ANSWER:

Itemized below are a few of the non-nutrient ingredients (I would even go so far as to label the "ANTI-NUTRIENTS since they rob the body of valuable nutrients in the process of digestion!)listed on a leading "stone-age family"cartoon vitamin gummi; here's the link for you to see for yourself: COMMERCIAL VITAMIN
  • Artificial Flavors (chemically derived, harmful on neurological systems)
  • Aspartame (chemical sweetner; recent research showed a clear link between this substance & cancer)
  • FD&C Yellow #6 (contributes to abnormal cell growth & weakness of the liver)
  • FD&C Red #40 (increase hyperactivity, anger, rage, & irritability)
  • Hydrogenated Vegetable Oil (contributes to High cholesterol, obesity & heart disease)

Here are a few of the non-nutrient ingredients listed on a comparable Natures Sunshine HEROS Vitamin, and here's the link: NS HEROS SOFT CHEW

  • Natural flavors
  • Organic evaporated cane juice
  • NATURAL Colors from--black carrot juice concentrate, purple berry concentrate, annatto
  • Organic sunflower oil

IN ADDITION to the healthier ingredients than the commercial vitamins , NS HEROS vitamins also includes these WHOLE FOODS for additional immune-potency:

  • Mangosteen fruit
  • Cranberry fruit
  • Broccoli flower
  • Spinach leaves and stems
  • Asparagus stems
  • Carrot root
  • Tomato fruit
  • Acai fruit
  • Pomegranate fruit extract
  • Fruit Juice Concentrates: White Grape, Apple, Pear, Orange, Pineapple, Cherry, Strawberry, Blueberry.

A GREAT vitamin for kiddos, with all natural ingredients, so they're not having to strain their immune system by digesting chemical colorings & flavorings and hydrogenated oils just to get nutrients out of the vitamin they are given! This tasty vitamin provides 100% of the Recommended Daily Allowance for vitamins A, C, D3, E, B6, B12, folic acid, biotin, pantothenic acid and zinc.

Modern diets often lack sufficient amounts of fruits, vegetables and other whole foods, making them low in essential nutrients and antioxidants needed for optimal health. The National Cancer Institute recommends eating at least 5 to 9 servings of fruits and vegetables per day. One serving of Sunshine Heroes Whole Foods Antioxidant offers the antioxidant power equivalent to two average servings of fruit or vegetables plus vitamin A, vitamin E and vitamin C for extra antioxidant protection and nutritional support. (BTW,when they give serving recommendations for food meals, they refer to RAW veggies and fruits as a serving; for cooked ones, there's even less of a serving for the diet!)

Each serving of Sunshine Heroes Calcium Plus D3 provides 300 mg of calcium, equivalent to an 8-ounce serving of milk. It also provides 140 mg of phosphorus, which works closely with calcium in the body to build strong bones and teeth.
It also Provides 75% of the American Academy of Pediatrics new vitamin D3 guidelines. Vitamin D3 has proven to be the most potent form of vitamin D in all primate species, including humans.

Take this for nicer skin, increased brain functioning and overall good health. DHA and EPA are essential fatty acids found almost exclusively in fish that live in deep, cold water. These fatty acids are key building blocks in every body cell.
Each serving of Sunshine Heroes Omega 3 with DHA provides 100 mg DHA and 20 mg EPA from fish oil. Helps enhance brain growth and development while also supporting the eyes and central nervous system.

This type of vitamin is the first one we started our girls out on, to build their immune system after being sick every week with colds, allergies and respiratory infections. Studies have shown that children age 1 to 6 years old who attended day care centers and were given milk containing Lactobacillus rhamnosus missed fewer days of day care than children not receiving the probiotic. Studies have also shown that a healthy intestinal bacterial colonization may reduce the risk of food allergies in infants. This product Aids digestion & intestinal function while Strengthening immune system response.
