mild weakness, irritability, tiring easily

They are anxious about school and other things. Magnesium is vital for 700 – 800 enzymatic processes throughout the body and it may be the hardest-working, most essential nutrient for total health.

When zinc intake is insufficient it may lead to poor immune function and increase the susceptibility to illness. The development of cartilage and bone – Zinc promotes the formation of collagen to support the building of bones and maintenance of bone strength, and assists with the development of cartilage for healthy joints. Zinc is required for the metabolism of carbohydrates, fats and protein and is therefore important for getting the most out of the food children eat. Zinc is essential for wound healing. It’s therefore especially valuable for kids as they are prone to minor scrapes and grazes. Adequate zinc helps maintain a healthy appetite. When zinc is insufficient over a period of time it can result in a diminished appetite, which isn’t ideal for kids who are growing rapidly and are often already fussy eaters. Zinc is an important factor in the maintenance of good health. Zinc has antioxidant properties and may help to reduce free radical damage in the body.
