WHY DID WE MAKE VITAMALS?
Vitamals (vitamins + animals) is a kid centric all-natural, sugar-free beverage loaded with essential vitamins and minerals. Tired of the sugary, artificially flavored and colored drinks aimed at children, we decided to provide a true alternative.
That means no sugar, no artificial flavors, no artificial colors and no preservatives.
Artificial dyes have been linked to adverse behavior and health outcomes in children. Because their bodies are still growing children seem to be particularly sensitive to artificial coloring.
Added sugar is hurting children nationwide. Obesity is on the rise as is NAFLD (non alcoholic fatty liver disease) and Type 2 Diabetes in children as young as 12.
Vitamals provides a smooth transition from empty calorie drinks, to a vitamin packed, low calorie thirst quenching experience.
Colorful and fun, with novel kid friendly flavors like sour apple, cotton candy and marshmallow, Vitamals satisfies the needs of health conscious parents looking to make a better choice, and the finicky tastebuds of their children.
WHAT IS ERYTHRITOL?
VITAMALS is sweetened with three natural non-nutritive (sugar-free) sweeteners – erythritol*, stevia and monk fruit.
Erythritol is a sugar alcohol naturally present in some fruits and fermented foods such as grapes, pears, wine, cheese, and mushrooms. Studies show that consuming erythritol may even reduce the risk of tooth decay!*
*Frequent eating of foods high in sugars and starches as between-meal snacks can promote tooth decay. The sugar alcohol erythritol used to sweeten this food may reduce the risk of dental caries.
WHAT IS CHROMAX® CHROMIUM?
Chromium is an essential trace mineral. Chromax® Chromium Picolinate is a highly bioavailable form of chromium supported by 35 human clinical studies affirming its benefits for weight management, body composition, cognitive health, glucose metabolism, insulin function, and energy support.
Good sources of chromium include broccoli, green beans, potatoes, apples, bananas, whole grains, peas, cheese, corn, grapes, beef, and poultry.
WHAT IS SELENIUM?
Selenium is an essential mineral, that acts as an antioxidant.
It’s only needed in small amounts but plays a major role in important processes in your body, including your metabolism and thyroid function.
Brazil nuts, seafoods, and organ meats are the richest food sources of selenium. Other sources include muscle meats, cereals and other grains, and dairy products.
Vitamals uses Sabinsa’s Selenium SELECT, the most bioavailable form of selenium.
WHAT IS SO SPECIAL ABOUT VITAMIN D3?
Vitamin D is both a nutrient we eat and a hormone our bodies make. Along with K2 and Magnesium, It is essential for building strong bones.
Laboratory studies show that vitamin D can reduce cancer cell growth, help control infections and reduce inflammation. Most people are deficient in vitamin D3 due to lack of sun exposure in the modern world.
Each bottle of Vitamals contains 25% of your daily requirement of D3.
WHY IS B12 SO IMPORTANT?
As Americans eat less animal foods, which are the only natural dietary source this crucial vitamin, B12 deficiencies are on the rise. Essential for converting food to energy, B12 helps enhance the immune system’s response to disease, necessary for neurotransmitter signaling, supports the normal function of your nerve cells, and needed for red blood cell formation and DNA synthesis.
Each bottle of Vitamals contains 100% of your daily requirement of B12.
