To a child it often seems so easy: Growing up, that is. It just sort of happens. But that does not do away with the need for a broad range of nutrients required for growth and maturation.
GV Junior not only fills in the gaps in a child’s often biased and randomly selected diet, but also provides essential nutrients required for full and healthful growth. Children need protein to build muscle, bone, and a robust endocrine system. They need zinc to assure growth, healing, immunity and maturation through puberty. They need a host of trace nutrients to run and regulate enzyme systems throughout the body, fuel brain development, and, ultimately, support every body system.
GV Junior is focused on young people, and what is required to make them grow and thrive.
Children naturally require a daily intake of high quality protein to support development of their muscular, endocrine, skeletal, and immune systems. Healthy brain function is also fueled by key amino acids that are converted to neurotransmitters in the brain.
The protein sources in GV Junior were selected for their cleanliness (absence of hormone and antibiotic contaminants), broad profile rich in essential amino acids, easy digestibility and ability to support both growth and immune function.
Proserum® Whey Protein effectively combines the high protein efficiency of whey protein with the renowned immune support of colostrum, lactoferrin and immunoglobulins.
GV Junior rapidly delivers a multitude of trace nutrients that will be used to support growth and development. Cereal grass juices (i.e. certified organic alfalfa, barley, oat, wheat) alone deliver virtually all known nutrients and several uncharacterized “growth factors” that cause young animals to rapidly grow larger, stronger, and healthier with greater resistance to disease. Those same cereal grasses allow mature animals (and undoubtedly humans) to repair and replenish bodily tissues more quickly.
Children often have trouble developing a passion for healthful vegetables. Vibrant Health has addressed this issue by selecting a specific group of air dried and freeze dried vegetables. The nutrient profile of each was compared with the profiles of the others in order to provide a balanced and complete measure of trace nutrients.
A special mineral complex from Indian Mustard, Brasicca juncea, was selected in order to assure a meaningful presence of trace minerals essential to growth and maturation (zinc), the synthesis of hemoglobin in each red blood cell (copper & iron), antioxidant enzyme support (copper, iron, zinc, selenium), cell membrane integrity (manganese) and blood fat and sugar control (chromium, vanadium, zinc.) Boron as patented calcium fructo borate, plus a full 1,000 i.u. of vitamin D3 are is also included to help assure that the child’s rapidly developing bones do so properly.
Let’s not forget the fruits
The rapid metabolism of a growing body calls for enhanced antioxidant protection. GV Junior contains a colorful and flavorful selection of some of the best anti-oxidant fruits
Early food prejudices in young children often cause some less than ideal foods to travel a child’s digestive tract. Probiotics help maintain and restore a healthy intestinal environment in the face of dietary abuse. GV Junior delivers a robust innoculation of the gastrointestinal tract with nine different probiotics, specifically selected for children, to improve the one system that must function well first and foremost above all others if growth, development and health is to be maintained.
Finishing it off
Startling statistics on the health status of American youth reveals that obesity is on the rise, and along with it, early stages of cardiovascular disease. Our inclusion of lecithin and policosanol in GV Junior serves two purposes: To help protect against early onset cardiovascular disease, and to support nerve growth and development.
Some green foods for children currently available in the marketplace resemble chocolate milk powders with token amounts of greens blended in, or some other wildly sweet drink mix with certainly less nutritional value than GV Junior. By contrast, a full 24 gram (24,000 mg.) serving of GV Junior contains only 2.422 grams of ingredients specifically added to improve flavor. In keeping with our tradition, Vibrant Health delivers TRUE nutritional value for the benefit of the end user.
For children 9 to 12 years, mix one scoop (enclosed) of GV Junior into 8 ounces of fruit juice, or other beverage. For 6 to 8 years of age, use two-thirds scoop, For 3 to 5 years of age, use one-third scoop. Stir briskly or shake briefly in a closed container until mixed. Drink, enjoy and prosper.
Each jar may last for 15 to 30 days depending on dosage used.
