Vitamins For Young Persons And Children
Category: Vitamins and Other Food Supplements
Source: How And When To Be Your Own Doctor
Young healthy people from weaning through their thirties should also
take nutritional supplements even though young people usually feel
so good that they find it impossible to conceive that anything could
harm them or that they ever could become seriously sick or actually
die. I know this is true because I remember my own youth and
besides, why else would young people so glibly ride motorcycles or,
after only a few months of brainwashing, charge up a hill into the
barrel of a machine gun. Or have unsafe sex in this age of multiple
venereal diseases. Until they get a little sense, vitamin
supplements help to counteract their inevitable and unpreventable
use of recreational foods. Vitamins are the cheapest long life and
health insurance plan now available. Parents are generally very
surprised at the thought that even their children need nutritional
supplements; very few healthy children receive them. A few are given
extra vitamin C when acutely ill, when they have colds or
communicable diseases such as chicken pox.
Young people require a low dose supplement compared to those of us
middle-aged or older, but it should be a broad formula with the full
range of vitamins and minerals. Some of the best products I have
found over 25 years of research and experimentation with young
people are Douglas Cooper's "Basic Formula" (low dose and excellent
for children) and "Super T Formula" (double the dose of Basic
Formula, therefore better for adolescents and young adults), also
from Douglas Cooper Company; Bronson's "Vitamin and Mineral Formula
for Active Men and Women" and Bronson's "Insurance Formula."
"Vitamin 75 Plus;" and "Formula 2" from Now Natural Foods are also
good and less costly.
Healthy very small children who will swallow pills can take these
same products at half the recommended dose. If they won't swallow
pills the pills can be blended into a fruit smoothie or finely
crushed and then stirred into apple sauce. There are also
"Children's Chewable Multi-Vitamins + Iron" (1-5 years old) from
Douglas Cooper that contains no minerals except iron, Bronson's
"Chewable Vitamins" (make sure it is the one for small children,
Bronson makes several types of chewables) and a liquid vitamin
product from Bronson called Multivitamin Drops for Infants. These
will be a little more costly than cutting pills in half.
There is also an extraordinarily high quality multivitamin/mineral
formula for children called "Children's Formula Life Extension Mix"
from Prolongevity, Ltd. (the Life Extension Foundation), it is in
tablet form, and slightly more expensive.
I hope that my book will be around for several generations. The
businesses whose vitamin products I recommend will not likely exist
in twenty years. Even sooner than that the product names and details
of the formulations will almost certainly be altered. So, for future
readers discovering this book in a library or dusty shelve of a used
book store, if I, at my current level of understanding, were
manufacturing a childrens and young adults vitamin formula myself,
this is what it would contain. Any commercial formulation within 25
percent of these figures plus or minus would probably be fine as
long as the vitamins in the pills were of high quality.
