Fall is back in full swing. And along with the excitement for kids to be back at school and in their extracurricular activities comes the added worry of increased exposure to illness-causing germs. As any parent knows: Once one kid on the playground or in the classroom gets sick, it’s simply a matter of time before your own kid is trading in a day of school for one spent in bed.

Fortunately, there are easy ways to help your kid feel their best all season long. With a combination proactive and reactive gameplan to support their immune health, powerful plant medicine can aid in warding off illness by making them less susceptible to the latest bug. Fewer sick days for your child, added peace of mind for you.

But First, Prevention

Supporting kids’ immune systems has never been more important, and for keeping children healthy, – prevention is key.

Greater health precautions have become part of the daily routine, with careful hand washing, masks and social distancing all becoming regular – and critical – practices.

Additionally, encouraging plenty of sleep, preparing nourishing foods and supporting kids to help ease worries and stress while returning to school and navigating new rules can add to their health and happiness. But there are further steps that can be taken to support their wellness, too.

Adaptogens Fortify Kids’ Natural Defences

Aside from preventative measures, being proactive and getting out in front of the latest bug being passed around the classroom can come from herbal support, such as – Deep Immune Kids.

A balanced immune system is a child’s strongest immune system, which is why adaptogens are so effective for immune support. Adaptogens have the unique ability to increase the body’s general resistance to threats by adapting their function to the body’s needs to regulate it back to its balanced, strongest state.

Adaptogens can support crucial immune responses against illness and infection, which is why these unique therapeutic plants are the foundation of the #1 selling Deep Immune daily formula.

While they promote whole-body health, certain adaptogens are specifically supportive of the immune system, – including astragalus and codonopsis, both of which are safe and highly effective for children.

Astragalus – boosts immunity by strengthening both innate and adaptive immunity for a robust defensive system, while codonopsis – is immune-restorative, supports the body from fatigue, and defends against frequent infection.

These two herbs are the cornerstones in the Deep Immune original formula, and they are the sole herbs in the Deep Immune Kids formula.

Deep Immune Kids has been a reliable children’s immune defense for Canadian families for over 20 years and is the winner of the prestigious Alive Gold Retailer & Consumer Choice Award. It’s the ideal protective daily immune tonic to help keep kids healthy.

Note: While Deep Immune Kids contains whey as a non-medicinal ingredient, it is lactose- and allergen- free.

How to Take Deep Immune Kids

For the most effective support, doses should be taken twice daily, – ideally in a little water on an empty stomach. Dosages for different ages are as follows:

• Children (2-4 years): 0.75-1 ml (scant ¼ teaspoon)
• Children (5-9 years): 1-1.5 ml (1/4 teaspoon)
• Adolescents (10-14 years): 2-3 ml (1/2 teaspoon)
• Adults & adolescents (15 & over): 4.5-6 ml (1 teaspoon)

The tincture has a slightly bitter herbal taste that may be more palatable to kids when mixed with a sip of their juice or smoothie, if preferred. Or, turn taking immunity “shots” into a fun game. Whatever your chosen method, make it a part of the daily routine for a sure and reliable way to help them adjust to the environment back at school.

Being prepared for the season with a daily holistic herbal support from Deep Immune Kids helps bring protection and peace of mind to the whole family.
