Do you give your child a multi-vitamin? Are you aware that many brands of multi-vitamins for children are not only offering NO health benefits for your child, but worse yet, contain ingredients, like aspartame, gmos and toxic additives, that can be detrimental to their health!
I can’t believe there aren’t stricter regulations on what is ALLOWED in supplements, in particular, the ones for children! It really makes me angry!
This is why I am so passionate about bringing light to this subject and encouraging people to really look into the brand they’re using! Most people, for good reason (so don’t feel bad) just assume that because a supplement has made it to the shelf of a store, or to line of products offered by a nutritional company, that it HAS to be good and SAFE…..wrong!!! Which is SO SAD!!
My family and I have been using Shaklee’s vitamins and all of their other wellness products for 20 years. My kids were about 2 /12 and 6 years old when we started. And WHY have we stayed with them for over 20 years? Because Shaklee is SO PICKY about what goes into their products. Their nutritional products are WAAAAY beyond “organic”. “Organic” just means there are less toxins present than non-organic. Shaklee has ZERO TOLERANCE for ANY toxins….meaning there are ZERO toxins, artificial colors, etc. in their products! If they have trouble procuring even just one raw material as 100% toxin-free, they will simply not produce that product and it remains “unavailable” until they acquire the 100% toxin-free raw material(s) they need to finish their product.
I, personally, witnessed our Alfalfa and our Ginseng at one point NOT being available for over a year because Shaklee kept getting raw materials which were “stamped” clean by those companies that check for contaminants, but since Shaklee does their own testing once they get it, they found those raw materials to be extremely contaminated and they couldn’t obtain clean raw materials for over a year! Therefore, we were without those products for a looooong time. Yet, those raw materials, which Shaklee rejected, were bought up by many other companies and THEY ALL continued to offer those products! I find that extremely UNETHICAL!! 🙁
As always, if you have any questions on this or any other product Shaklee offers, feel free to contact me!!
