Supporting Immunity in Children

By Stacey Shapiro June 17, 2022

Supporting Immunity in Children

**Article supplied by Herbs of Gold

Unlike an adult, a child’s immune system is relatively immature, making them more vulnerable to illness. Up until around the age of 12-14 years, the prevalence of upper respiratory infections (URTIs) is high, with children experiencing 6-8 URTIs per year in comparison to 2-3 in adults[1].

Good nutrition is essential to a healthy immune system, which can be a challenge in children who are fussy eaters or have food intolerances. A staggering 99% of Australian children aged between 2 and 18 years do not meet the recommended serves of vegetables each day, which can impact their overall immune health[2].

To circumvent these nutritional limitations, considering supplementation may be helpful in providing extra immune support. Children’s Immune Care is a delicious strawberry-vanilla tasting chewable tablet, formulated with a blend of herbs, vitamins and minerals to support immune system health in children. It can be particularly beneficial in times when a child’s immune system may be vulnerable and require extra support such as starting school or childcare or coming into the winter months. 

Children’s Immune Care contains Echinacea, a herb traditionally used in Western herbal medicine to relieve symptoms of common colds and flu, including mild fever, and relieve the severity of symptoms of mild URTIs. Nutrients such as zinc, vitamin C and citrus bioflavonoids provide synergistic antioxidant support and maintain healthy immune system function in children, especially in those with low intakes or increased demands.
