Sunshine Heroes Omega 3 with DHA is a
uniquely formulated children’s health supplement that provides omega-3 fatty
acids. While necessary for children’s health and development, essential fatty
acids cannot be manufactured by the body and must be obtained through diet.
Fatty acids are key building blocks in every cell in the body. They beneit the
brain, eyes and the function of the central nervous system. DHA (docosahexaenoic
acid) and EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) are two essential fatty acids ecognized
for their health beneits in all life stages and are essential components as a
child grows and develops.
DHA is critical for the optimal development and function of a child’s brain,
eyes and central nervous system during infancy and childhood. DHA is a major
structural fat in the brain and eyes, representing approximately 97% of all
omega-3 fats in the brain and 93% of all omega-3 fats in the retina. Scientific
studies have shown that DHA supplementation during pregnancy enhances
intelligence, cognition and vision in infants and young children. Additionally,
the children’s health benefits of DHA extend beyond infancy, with application in
enhancing children’s performance on intelligence tests, and aiding in child
learning and behavioral problems. Each serving contains 100 mg DHA.

Calcium Plus D3
In a comment about the status of children’s health, The American Academy of
Pediatrics has stated that “most older children and adolescents in the United
States currently do not achieve the recommended intake of calcium. Maintaining
adequate calcium intake during childhood and adolescence is necessary for the
development of peak bone mass, which may be important in reducing the risk of
fractures and osteoporosis later in life.” Each serving of Sunshine Heroes
Calcium Plus D3 provides 300 mg of calcium, equivalent to an 8 ounce serving of
milk. It also provides 140 mg of phosphorus, which works closely with calcium to
build strong bones and teeth.
Vitamin D is essential for children’s health and the health of their bones.
Calcium is only absorbed by the body when vitamin D is present. The American
Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) has recently doubled its recommendation for the
minimum amount of vitamin D that children should get daily. The new guidelines
recommend at least 400 international units daily. Most children don’t drink
enough milk (four 8 oz. glasses) to provide adequate levels of vitamin D.
Vitamin D3 is the form that is produced by our own bodies in response to
sunlight and is considered to be the most bioactive form. One serving of
Sunshine Heroes Calcium Plus D3 provides 300 IU of vitamin D3.

Children’s health relies on a healthy level of probiotics—friendly bacteria
that perform numerous functions, including metabolizing foods, absorbing
nutrients and maintaining a proper balance of intestinal flora. Probiotic
microbes have a symbiotic relationship with their human hosts, meaning that both
the probiotics and the humans benefit from their relationship. It is estimated
that over 400 different types of friendly flora inhabit the human
gastrointestinal and genitourinary tracts. The Sunshine Heroes Probiotic Power
children’s health supplement contains 1 billion microorganisms from 11 optimal
strains of friendly probiotic bacteria.

foods is associated with a lower occurrence of chronic and degenerative
diseases. The National Cancer Institute recommends eating at least ive servings
of fruits and vegetables per day.
Supplementing the diet with Whole Foods Antioxidant soft chews make it easier

Whole Foods Papayazyme
Digestive enzymes are essential for proper digestion. They are made by the
body but are also obtained through the diet. Enzymes break down foods into
nutrients that can be absorbed and used to build and repair cells, tissues,
organs, glands, hormones, etc.
Digestive enzymes fall into one of three categories: proteolytic enzymes
(digest protein), amylases (carbohydrate digestion) and lipases (fat digestion).
Fruits and vegetables are good sources of dietary enzymes. Unfortunately,
cooking food can destroy these enzymes that are needed for children’s health.
Like their parents, most children do not eat enough raw foods and can therefore
benefit from supplementation for proper.
Whole Foods Papayazyme combines pineapple and papaya fruits plus whole food
sources of digestive enzymes. It is fortified with additional proteolytics and
amylase for healthy digestion of most food types. Whole Foods Papayazyme
provides digestive enzymes nutrition for children at levels that are safe for
chewing and gentle enough for children.
