Why do children need vitamins and minerals in their diet?
Everyone needs vitamins and minerals. They help release energy from our food and help build muscle, bone, blood and other vital tissue. Without vitamins and minerals, we cannot maintain good health and normal growth.
During the active, growing years of childhood, it is important to ensure that children receive all the vitamins and minerals they need every day. Since the body does not store all essential vitamins and minerals, some have to be supplied on a regular basis. Unfortunately, many Americans have poor eating habits which can make it difficult to get all of the vitamins and minerals we need.
To supplement your diet, Flintstones can be taken to help assure adequate nutrition.
Can chewable tablets be swallowed?
Yes. The tablets will dissolve if swallowed whole. It is important to note that the size of the tablet may make it difficult for children to swallow. The tablets can also be sucked on or crushed.
When is the best time of day to take vitamins?
Generally, any time of day is fine. It's recommended that you try to take Flintstones at the same time each day to develop a routine. Some people can experience some stomach upset due to the minerals in multivitamins. If this is the case, it's recommended taking the vitamin after a meal.
How long will vitamins stay in your system and be absorbed?
Your body will absorb as much of the water soluble vitamins as needed (all B and C vitamins) and the excess amounts are excreted through your urine. Fat-soluble vitamins (A, D, E, and K) are stored in fat cells and in your liver. Your body controls the amount absorbed; you get increased absorption when there are vitamin deficiencies in your diet.
