Take a walk down the vitamin aisle at your favorite grocery story... there are a ton of options, aren't there? I must admit, so often I find myself walking away with empty hands because there are just two many to choose from. Why so many?

The reality is, each one of us is very different and has very different needs when it comes to vitamin supplements. The same goes for kids. The child who eats a well balanced diet will have different needs than may need something different than the picky eater that barely eats a thing. The kid with occasional stomach issues may require something different than the kid who is healthy as a horse all the time. Special diets can come into play at times, as well as specific health needs. Clearly, there really is no one size fits all. However, there is one brand that seems to keep all kids covered, no matter their individual needs: Gut Connection Kids by Country Life.

So, what is Gut Connection Kids by Country Life?

Gut Connection Kids by Country Life is a range of supplements that are scientifically formulated to connect the gut to a variety of health issues that matter most to you and your children. They are one of the very first children's supplements to contain Epicor® Whole Food Fermentate prebiotic, which has been shown in clinical studies to support immune and gut health. The Epicor® yeast fermentate  in each of the individual varieties reinforces the immune system's first line of defense providing fast acting immune support... with just two hours! Kids are not know to be all that patient, so this is a huge plus! This prebiotic is then blended with clinically studied ingredients to better support your child's specific needs. Their supplements fit most special dietary needs, but be sure to check individual products for specific details. 

What are the specific varieties and how do they help?

Gut Connection Kids by Country Life comes in four unique varieties: Gut Connection Kids Immune Balance, Gut Connection Kids Digestive Balance, Gut Connection Kids Cognitive Balance, and Gut Connection Kids Sleep Balance. 

Immune Balance provides overall immune support, making it a great choice during cold and flu season for ALL kids to help boost their immune system more. Digestive Balance also helps support gut and immune health while also providing added support to help reduce occasional bloating or discomfort, and even improve weekly bowel movements. Cognitive Balance contains a prebiotic blend that can help to maintain gut health and support communication between your kids central nervous and digestive systems, allowing for better focus, attention and memory. This can be great to take before school to help your child get the most out of their day. I have found that this is even more helpful now with kids learning at home with all the various distractions all around them. Finally, Sleep Balance contains Lactium, which is used widely in Europe to help reduce stress so that kids can fall asleep faster and stay asleep longer. Whether it's tummy troubles, focus or sleep issues, there are options here to benefit every kid. And while they were created more for children ages 4-12, teens and adults can enjoy them as well (follow directions for the 9-12 year old dosage). 

But how do they taste?

As moms, we all know that kids can be quite picky... not just about their food, but about their supplements too. I cannot tell you how many half empty bottles of vitamins we've found ourselves throwing away because my kids just won't eat them. We were given the chance to try out each variety for ourselves. All of these products with the exception of the Sleep Balance come in small chewable tablets with a sweet and sour flavor. While my kids usually prefer gummy options, these are small enough that my daughter was willing to give them a chance. The verdict? She says they taste good--- with a fruity type flavor that wasn't too overwhelming. She also loves the fun animal shapes they come in. Her favorite is the polar bear for the Immune Balance... but we find the hippos found in Digestive Balance fit her needs best.

The Sleep Balance comes in a fun chocolate powder that can be mixed in with milk or another liquid... what kids doesn't want chocolate before bed!? I know my daughter certainly does. It keeps some fun and flavor in her goodnight routine!
