So Long Summer, Hello Class
Prepare Your Kids for a Healthy, Happy School Year

by Nathan Tingen

It may still be hot outside, but the summer sun is heading down earlier nowadays. Many changes signal summer’s end, but perhaps the biggest sign is our kids’ return to school.

Your children may not be as excited about “back to school” as you are. But school exposes our kids to new ideas, experiences and opportunities to grow and stretch their minds and bodies. The knowledge and experiences they gain will shape their lives and mold them into adulthood. With all of this important development taking place, it’s wise to help give your children the nutrition they need to make the most of this school year and of themselves.

Essential Vitamins for Growing Minds

Everyone should take a good multivitamin each day. Children’s growing bodies have special needs. Nature’s Sunshine Products (NSP) offers three choices to meet those needs.

VitaWave Liquid Vitamins and Minerals
VitaWave provides 100 percent or more of the Daily Value for 17 important vitamins and minerals in a base of healthful herbs, amino acids, plant-derived trace minerals and antioxidants like lutein and lycopene. Flavored with natural black raspberry (another wonderful antioxidant), you can mix it with water for an easy, great-tasting vitamin drink.

Herbasaurs Chewable Multiple Vitamins and Minerals
Designed specifically for children or anyone who has difficulty swallowing capsules or tablets, Herbasaurs Chewable Multiple Vitamins and Minerals contains 12 essential vitamins, plus iron and other minerals that provide a host of valuable health benefits. Flavored with natural lemon-lime flavor, orange juice and papaya, this multi makes taking vitamins a tasty treat for your kids.

Herbasaurs Liquid Multiple Vitamins Plus Iron
For children who would rather take a liquid, we offer Herbasaurs Liquid Multiple Vitamins. With no artificial colors, flavors or preservatives, it also provides 12 essential vitamins, multiple minerals and antioxidants.

Keeping the Focus on Learning
Most kids are full of energy. With the summer days just past, some children may find it more of a challenge to concentrate on learning with playgrounds and good weather beckoning through the window. Available in both capsules and powder,Focus Attention provides Ginkgo biloba, DMAE and Melissa officinalis to encourage restful, balanced mental activity and normal brain function.

More than a Fountain of Learning

Does Sarah always cover her mouth when she coughs? Does Johnny forget to wash his hands? Does Amy always seem to have a runny nose? For all the good that school does for our children, it also exposes them to things they might not otherwise face. Help nourish your kids with all-natural immune-supporting products from Nature’s Sunshine.

Herbasaurs Chewable Elderberry Plus
Flavored with lemon and lime, Herbasaurs Chewable Elderberry Plus nutritionally supports the immune and respiratory systems. It contains elderberry fruit concentrate and the powerful adaptogens reishi mushroom and astragalus—all known historically for their ability to support the immune system.

Herbasaurs Chewable Antioxidants with Grapine®
Herbasaurs Chewable Antioxidants with Grapine provides beta-carotene, vitamins C and E, Grapine and licorice flavonoid extract for increased antioxidant protection. Antioxidants help protect growing bodies against the harmful effects of free radicals caused by pollutants, sunlight and even exercise.

The Summer’s Up and so Is Your Stress
For many parents, getting your kids ready for school can be a hectic experience. Try NSPNutri-Calm®, which provides generous amounts of B-complex vitamins in a base of herbs known to support optimal nervous system health. Don’t let stress get the best of you this Fall.
