Chewable Multivitamins and Minerals
Chewable multivitamins and minerals is an optimized preparation intended to supplement a diet of children and adults, who have a hard time swallowing regular pills, with vitamins, dietary minerals, and other nutritional elements, and was specifically formulated for patients who are dealing with impaired absorption of nutrients.
By supplementing the diet with additional vitamins and minerals, multivitamins can be a valuable tool for those with dietary imbalances or different nutritional needs. People with dietary imbalances may include those on restrictive diets and those who cannot or will not eat a nutritious diet.
Scientific data indicate that long-term vitamin and mineral supplement users show markedly better health than people who take no supplements. Clinical trials demonstrate that after adjustment for age, gender, income, education and body mass index, greater degree of supplement use is associated with more favorable concentrations of serum homocysteine, C-reactive protein, high-density lipoprotein cholesterol, and triglycerides, as well as lower risk of prevalent elevated blood pressure and diabetes.
Potential indications for use of Multivitamins and Minerals in children include:
- Gluten intolerance and celiac disease
- Growth delay
Potential side effects:
- Abdominal discomfort
Potential drug interactions:
- Active gastritis or peptic ulcer disease
- Active ulcerative colitis
Contents: 60 tablets
The recommended dose of chewable multivitamins and mineral is 2 tablets a day with meals. Ideally, the dose of the vitamins and minerals should be adjusted to their targeted blood levels. Patients exceeding the recommended doses must do so under the supervision of their physician due to the increased risk of potential side effects.
