Prevention is the best cure. This is a popular school of thought, and an important lesson as kids start heading back to class; however, parents often struggle with how to make this actionable. Thankfully, Standard Process®, a leading whole food-based nutritional supplement company based in Palmyra, Wis., has just what a family needs to help ensure a healthy household during the long school year — the NEW SP Children’s™ Immune for kids and Immuplex® for adults.
“We’ve been advancing health through high-quality, whole food-based nutritional supplements since 1929,” said Standard Process President and CEO Charlie DuBois. “The quality and longevity of our solutions make us uniquely qualified to help support children’s health. It’s a natural extension of our whole food philosophy.”
As a family-owned company, Standard Process is committed to helping families achieve a lifetime of wellness, and immune system support is a key part of that. That’s why the launch of SP Children’s™ Immune is so exciting. Not only does it meet the particular needs of children, the new product is a way to spark family conversations about healthy living.
From staying active, to getting a good night’s sleep, to eating a nourishing diet, it’s all connected; however, studies show that nutrient deficiencies are at an all-time high. Thankfully, the NEW SP Children’s™ Immune is a great choice for the many parents who wish to deliver key nutrients for proper immune system functioning and development* in their kids.
“Proper nutrition is very important for helping children develop their immune systems,” said Weston Bussler, Ph.D. and nutrition scientist at Standard Process. “We designed SP Children’s™ Immune to deliver a number of critical nutrients necessary to support a developing immune system, and the inclusion of ingredients like Prebiotic 2’-FL and Colostrum helps to distinguish our product from other children-focused supplements.”
Standard Process has a full library of supplements to support a number of health needs, but their products focused on supporting the immune system include:
SP Children’s™ Immune
The first children’s product from Standard Process, SP Children’s™ Immune is a chewable supplement for kids ages 4 and older. It delivers key nutrients for proper immune system functioning and development – its attributes include:
- The GI tract is your immune system’s biggest line of defense, that’s why the following two ingredients are key; they also make this product unique from its competitors:
- 2’-FL, a prebiotic first identified in human milk, is able to reach the lower GI tract where it is broken down to feed the growth of beneficial microbes.*^
- Colostrum is sourced from a whole food source (cow’s milk) and supports a normal healthy immune response in the GI tract.
- It offers an excellent source of vitamin D, zinc, and antioxidant vitamin C.
- It’s made from whole food-based ingredients, including beet root from the Standard Process organic farm.**
- The product does not use any high fructose corn syrup and derives its sweet flavor from the organic ingredients of elderberry and whole strawberry.
- It is gluten-free and non-soy.
- Two chewable wafers are recommended per day for ongoing support.
Our immune system is a feat of communication among cells, and good cell communication is vital in keeping us healthy and strong. The ingredients in Immuplex® can help modulate immune system communication; that’s why for 38 years, healthcare professionals have been recommending it to adults for the following benefits:
- It offers an excellent source of iron, zinc, copper, chromium, folate and vitamins A, B6, and B12 and antioxidant vitamins C and E.
- It helps maintain normal white blood cell activity already within a normal range.*
- It supports the body’s normal inflammatory response function.*
- It provides ingredients with antioxidant activity.
- Two capsules are recommended per day for ongoing support.
