With our food nowadays lacking in minerals and vitamins, and the stress of everyday life sapping us of important nutrients, hard-working health supplements are important to keep our bodies working well. From science-backed ingredients to decades of scientific research, here are a few brands of health supplements and vitamins for kids (like yummy Vitamin C) – as well as some of the best probiotics in Singapore!
MadeFrom’s all-natural Vitamin C gummy supplements for kids
Imagine there was a Vitamin C gummy for our kiddos made entirely from real food, free from added sugar and containing nothing nasty? New Zealand brand MadeFrom’s range of health supplements ticks all of these boxes and more!
Frustrated at not being able to find a natural health supplement to give to their children, MadeFrom’s founders worked with a team of nutraceutical experts, nutritionists and food technologists to create a unique, delicious and effective health vitamin supplement that kids love.
The result? A great-tasting, vegan-friendly and allergen-free Vitamin C gummy that harnesses the power of real food and is the only one of its kind on the market to be made from 100 percent natural and plant-based ingredients. Derived from acerola cherries, the gummies offer a natural alternative to synthetic Vitamin C for optimal absorption.
So, what are the benefits of vitamin C? Just two MadeFrom gummies a day will strengthen your child’s immune system and help support their growth, gut health and digestion. Amazing!
Each bottle contains 60 gummies for a one-month supply and retails at $34.95.
Akesi’s plant-based gut health supplements – the best probiotics in Singapore!
If you’re wanting fewer pills and gummies in your family’s wellbeing toolkit, look no further than the Akesi Bio-Fermented drinks. It’s well-known as being one of the best sources of probiotics in Singapore!
Taking an Akesi Bio-Fermented drink daily is an easy way to repopulate different strains of healthy bacteria directly to the gut. The drinks effectively combine beneficial bacterial and yeast species like Bifidobacterium, Lactobacillus and Saccharomyces. They also contain essential nutrients from plants including anthocyanins, curcuminoids and polyphenols. Many people lack these due to having not enough plant diversity in their dietary choices. The Akesi Bio-Fermented range is enjoyable to consume, too. They’re a sugar-free and nutritionally low-calorie alternative to juice, soda and cultured milk drinks.
Akesi carries a strong track record of customers reporting better health outcomes after taking their products. Nutritionists and doctors are endorsing Akesi and also buying the plant-based Bio-Fermented drinks for their own families. The range comes in family-friendly one-month supply bottles for $58. If you’re travelling, you can opt for 100ml supply bottles that last a week. Special bundle and subscription prices are also available.
Proteus Nutrition’s terrific turmeric extract
Founded by a group of medical and nutrition professionals as a response to the lack of science-backed health supplements available in the market today, Proteus aims to create a range of products – which encompass sleep supplements, multivitamins for adults and delicious dessert protein shakes, amongst others – that are safe, effective, and affordable.
Their latest star product is LPS-Curcumin, a phytochemical extracted from turmeric. Used for centuries in Ayurvedic medicine, it’s been reported to offer a large number of benefits; these include reduced risk of certain cancers, fat loss and inflammation reduction. While curcumin isn’t absorbed into the body when we eat turmeric, researchers have been able to overcome this obstacle by developing formulations that coat microscopic curcumin particles with lecithin, to increase its absorption rate.
The LPS-Curcumin is $60 per tub of 60 capsules, to be taken twice daily.
