Teenage Health!

BODY ROX: Daily vitamin, mineral, and antioxidant supplement for teenagers

Nutrition plays a critical role in everyone’s health, but good nutrition is especially important during adolescence and the teenage years of growth, development and physical maturation. With their active lifestyle and growing bodies, adolescent needs advanced levels of antioxidants, vitamins, minerals and other nutrients to achieve and maintain optimal health. 

Teenager’s busy lifestyles almost inevitably lead to irregular eating habits – missing meals and binging on junk food – which may cause serious dietary deficiencies. The fast food that teenagers love to eat tends to be high in calories, fat and sodium, but low in fiber, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. Also, because adolescents receive more peer pressure than any other age group, most boys want to weigh more, and almost all girls want to weigh less. Teenagers need to follow a balanced nutritional plan that may need to include vitamin and mineral supplementation. Based on USANA’s Essentials formula for adults, Body Rox is specially formulated to help meet the nutritional needs of growing adolescents. When combined with balanced meals, Body Rox helps provide essential nutrients needed during adolescence and young adulthood, setting the stage for lifelong health.  

Antioxidants 

An important – and sometimes primary – function of certain vitamins and minerals, such as vitamin E and selenium, is to protect cells from free-radical damage. The body produces antioxidants to counteract this damage, but today’s environmental pollutants can create more free radicals than the active teenage body can handle. This situation can be compounded for active young individuals, whose increased use of oxygen can further increase oxidative stress. Body Rox provides a potent combination of antioxidants, with the new “Phyto-Antioxidant Complex” including grape seed extract, olive fruit extract and Meriva curcumin, together with lutein, and lycopene that help young bodies maintain ideal health. 

Vitamins 

Body Rox contains balanced amounts of essential vitamins and cofactors that young people need. Beta-carotene, a precursor of vitamin A, is important for vision and healthy skin. Adolescents need B vitamins in advanced amounts to meet the extra demands of growth, energy metabolism and muscle tissue development. Vitamin D is essential for calcium uptake and utilization, and vitamin K is important to blood clotting. Vitamin C plays an important role in the formation of collagen in bones, cartilage, muscle and blood vessels, which helps to support joint and skin health during adolescent years. During this critical developmental stage, vitamins and antioxidants supplementation is often necessary to compensate for erratic eating patterns and the lack of fresh food and vegetables in their diet. 

Minerals 

Body Rox contains a balance of essential minerals in bioavailable forms that play key roles in maintaining optimal health. For example, calcium assimilation during the developing years is essential for bone health later in life. Zinc is vital for normal growth and development, immune function, sexual maturation and reproduction. Iodine is critical for the synthesis for thyroid hormones required for the growth and development of the central nervous system. It also helps maintain the body’s normal energy production and basal metabolic rate. Selenium functions as an antioxidant and Chromium helps in the maintenance of normal healthy glucose metabolism and blood glucose level. 

Why Body Rox? 

USANA used sound principles of nutrition to develop Body Rox, which provides essential antioxidants, vitamins, minerals and cofactors in an easy-to-swallow tablet and with a vegetarian safe formulation. USANA’s goal was to combine a broad range of nutrients with the highest possible purity and potency of ingredients – and to keep the formulation at an affordable price. 

Body Rox is a laboratory tested, quality guaranteed. Meets British Pharmacopoeia specifications for potency, uniformity and disintegration where applicable. 

Using Body Rox 

Take three (3) Body Rox tablets spread evenly throughout the day, preferably with meals.

UsanimalsTM


UsanimalsBuy vitamins for children online from Usana Health Sciences!TM, USANA’s Essentials for kids, is an advanced formulation that contain nutrients necessary for a healthy childhood. 

 

USANIMALS (Code # 105 Tablets 56 per bottle)

Usanimals USANA’s Essentials for kids, is an advanced formulation that contains vital nutrients necessary for a healthy childhood. Good nutrition plays a critical role in everyone’s health and it’s especially important for children. Children never stop growing from birth to the end of adolescence. Kilo for kilo, a five-year-old child needs more thiamine, riboflavin, niacin, vitamins A and C, and vitamins B6 and B12 than a 25-year-old man.

Tables of Contents!

Nutrition for Growth

  • Growth involves much more than just the development of children’s bodies.
  • It is an incredibly intricate balance of varying anatomical growth rates, psychological changes, and shifting hormone status.
  • While growth in childhood is slower in infancy or adolescence, energy output is high, with hard play periods that include running, jumping and testing of new physical skills.
  • In addition to providing fuel for growth and normal activity levels, a child’s diet must also provide for the accumulation of stores of nutrients in preparation for the accelerated growth spurts of the teen years.

Today’s Childhood Nutrition

Unfortunately, one clinical study after another shows that our children do not receive all the nutrition they need from their diets. In addition to problems caused by high intake of fat, particularly saturated fat, many children are simply not getting enough of the essential nutrients.

Why this is important to know... 

  • Less than 25 percent of young people eat the recommended five servings or more of fruits and vegetables each day.
  • And nearly one-quarter of all vegetables consumed by children and adolescents are French fries.
  • Adequate amounts of key nutrients such as Zinc, vitamin B6,. Magnesium and Calcium are missing from the diets of more than 50 percent of children from 2 to 10 years old.

Childhood nutrition is not only important for a child’s developing years. Maintaining optimal health is a lifelong challenge. More and more medical research is showing that it is the poor diet and bad habits that are established in childhood that may play a role in the development of degenerative diseases of middle and old age. With this in mind, it is important to focus today on maintaining a child’s health through proper eating patterns.

Children need a variety of foods that provide energy, protein, carbohydrates, fat, vitamins and minerals for optimal physical and cognitive growth and development.

Essentials for Children

Usanimals contain an array of

  • Antioxidants,
  • Vitamins and
  • Minerals

in amounts designed especially for active, growing children.

What are the benefits of these vitamins for children's growth?

  • Vitamin D and C, along with Selenium and Zinc, support normal and healthy immune function.
  • Vitamin E and C are two of the most powerful antioxidants needed by the human body.
  • Vitamin E is one of the most important antioxidants because it helps to maintain strong cell membranes. In addition to its antioxidant role, vitamin C is essential to form collagen in bones, cartilage, muscle and blood vessels.
  • Advanced levels of calcium, with magnesium and vitamin D play a key role in supporting normal healthy bone and skeleton structure and strong teeth.
  • Iron, Iodine and B group vitamins support normal healthy energy production, which is so important for active children.
  • Iodine along with Zinc support normal growth and development. Betacarotene supports healthy eyesight.

What are Omega-3 Fatty Acids?

Omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids are polyunsaturated fats. Unlike saturated fats, polyunsaturated fats are chemically active fats that are important structural components of every cell membrane in our body. A large body of research has shown that omega-3 fats are very important for cardiovascular health, and among many other benefits. However, our bodies can’t make these polyunsaturated fats, and our everyday diets, especially in Western societies, have become increasingly deficient in omega-3.

Vegetable sources of omega-3 can be converted to long-chain omega-3 fatty acids in the body, which are particularly important. However, many people have difficulty making these conversions. For these people the long-chain omega-3 fatty acids can be obtained directly from oily deep sea fish or marine algae.

Recent reports suggest that children aren’t getting enough omega-3s out of their diet for adequate nutrition, causing a widespread public health concern. During development of early childhood years, it is essential that children receive enough vitamins, mineral, antioxidants and essential fatty acids. Significant physical and psychological health problems can result from nutrient deficiency, and substantially affect long term development. A fundamental nutrient deficiency that impacts considerably on brain and eye health, as well as cognitive function, is omega-3 fatty acids.

An Australian study conducted in NSW, called the Schools Physical Activity and Nutrition Survey (SPANS), showed that children are not getting enough fish in their diet. It has been recommended by the National Health and Medical Research Council of Australia (NHMRC), that kids should have 2-3 meals of fish per week for adequate intake of essential omega-3 fatty acids. Sadly, in the SPANS study, only 4-8% of children replied that they eat 3 or more meals of fish per week. This scenario is extremely concerning for children’s health, and may present a significant public health problem. This nutrient concern alone represents a significant health problem, especially for early childhood development.

What are the Benefits of Omega-3 Fatty Acids? | Fish Oil Benefits

Omega-3 Fatty Acids for Concentration and Behaviour. Many people either have or know someone with a child who has

  • difficulty sitting still,
  • controlling impulses or
  • concentrating at school.

These problems start to have an adverse impact on school performance and behavior.

What are Omega-3 Good For?

How can omega-3 fatty acids help with concentration and behavior? Most of us are aware of the importance of good nutrition for physical health, but do we think about how food might affect our brain? It may make sense if we consider that the brain, just like the heart, liver, kidneys or lungs, is an organ. The brain influences our learning, moods and behavior. Therefore, if our brain doesn’t receive the right nutrients, this is likely to impact on the way we think, feel and behave.

The brain has very high requirement for energy and nutrients from food, and one of the very important nutrients is omega-3 fatty acids. Over half of our brain is fat, and although the body normally has a 10:1 ratio of omega-6:omega-3 fatty acids, the long-chain omega-3 fatty acids DHA is the most concentrated polyunsaturated fat in our brain. Therefore, it is thought that long-chain omega-3 fatty acids have very important structural and functional roles in the brain, including the maintenance of cell membrane fluidity and the transmission of neural chemical signals.

Research has established that omega-3 fatty acids are crucial for healthy infant brain development, and researchers are also finding that omega-3 deficiencies might be related to a range of mental health problems.

Omega-3 for Healthy Bodies | Children's Omega 3 Benefits

Omega-3 fatty acids are precursors for eiscosanoids, which are mediators of many biochemical processes and influence interactions between cells. Thus, they are necessary for the normal function and production of healthy cells throughout the body, making them vital for ongoing health growth and development.

Some research suggests that early nutrition can induce lifelong effects on metabolism, growth, neurodevelopment and cardiovascular health. Several clinical studies have proven omega-3 fatty acids are beneficial for the heart and vascular system throughout our lives.

Omega-3 for Healthy Eyes | Children's Omega 3 Supplements for Good Vision

Numerous clinical studies have shown that omega-3 fatty acids support healthy eye development. High concentrations of DHA are found in the photoreceptor of the retina, where it plays a role in fluidity of retinal membranes and visual function. DHA deficiency has been linked to structural and functional abnormalities in the eye, due to decreased efficiency of visual signaling pathways.

Regardless of age, everyone needs omega-3 fatty acids in their diets. More so for the developing mind and for learning, omega-3 is crucial for kids. So what can be done about the problem of kids not eating enough fish? Are there any alternatives to fish? A good supplement is a great place to start along with a healthy diet.

Why BiOmega Jr. | Fish oil tablets?

As we have seen, omega-3 vitamins fatty acids are a key component in getting a child off to a smart start, but are often missing from children’s diets.

ACTIVE CALCIUM PLUS & ACTIVE CALCIUM CHEWABLE

Table of Contents:

Active Calcium Plus and Active Calcium Chewable are carefully formulated, clinically proven bone-building formulas, not just calcium supplementation.

Active Calcium Plus and Active Calcium Chewable contain high amounts of calcium citrate and carbonate, magnesium and vitamin D to optimize bone mineralization and to ensure proper calcium intake.

Osteoporosis – Are You at Risk?

Osteoporosis, which affects millions of people every year, occurs when the rate of absorption of old bone exceeds the deposition of new bone. The resulting thinning of the bones makes them porous and prone to fracture. Deficiencies of calcium, magnesium, boron and vitamin D can contribute to the development of osteoporosis. Other factors such as sex, race, hormonal status, family history, level of exercise and general diet also affect the risk of osteoporosis.

Can Supplementation Prevent or slow down Osteoporosis? 

Supplementation with a comprehensive bone-building formula such as Active Calcium Plus or Active Calcium Chewable can play an important part in reducing the risk of osteoporosis and increasing the quality of life.

Although signs of osteoporosis usually don’t occur until the later years of life, getting the proper amount of calcium in our diet when we’re young helps build strong bones and reduces the risk of osteoporosis in the future.

It is estimated that adolescents who make even a 5 percent gain in bone mass in their teens can reduce the risk of osteoporosis later in life by 40 percent.

Clinical Studies Down with Active Calcium Plus

A recent double-blind placebo-controlled USANA study assessed the impact of a daily calcium, magnesium and vitamin D supplement on bone development and bone mineralization in 81 preadolescent girls. Half of the group was assigned at random to receive Active Calcium Chewable. The remaining girls received a placebo supplement. After 12 months of supplementation, girls receiving Active Calcium Chewable showed a net gain (1.41 percent) in bone mineral density, while girls in the placebo group showed a net decline (-0.94 percent). Gains in bone mineral content were also greater in the active treatment group than in the placebo group (5.38 percent versus 0.69 percent respectively).

The Composition of Active Calcium Plus

Calcium: Importance of Calcium 

The human body contains nearly 1.5 kg of total calcium, about 99 percent of which is in the bones. Throughout life, bones are in a constant state of reformation as calcium is continually removed from and redeposited in the bones. Adequate levels of calcium are needed every day to ensure that bone mineral density is maintained.

Calcium is also critical for normal nerve conduction, muscle contraction, blood clotting (provided it is normal to begin with), cell division and electrical conduction in the heart. It is also essential for producing and activating enzymes and hormones that regulate digestion, energy and fat metabolism.

If people do not get enough calcium from their diet, the body will take it from bone structure, which results in a net loss of bone calcium.

Magnesium: Why is Magnesium Important? 

Magnesium is an essential mineral that accounts for about 0.005 percent of the body’s total weight. Along with calcium, it is an important component of strong, healthy bones. Magnesium is involved in the metabolism of carbohydrates and amino acids. It also plays an important role in neuromuscular contractions and helps regulate the acid-alkaline balance in the body.

Vitamin D: The Role Vitamin C3 plays in our Bodies 

Vitamin D enhances calcium absorption in the small intestine and calcium utilization in bone formation. Vitamin D also influences the utilization of phosphorus, another mineral that is important for strong bones.

Vitamin K: Why vitamin K

Vitamin K influences the level of osteocalcin in the bone-forming cells and thus the rate of mineralization of bone. Low intakes of vitamin K may increase the risk of hip fracture in women.

Why Active Calcium Plus & Active Calcium Chewable?

  • Active Calcium Plus and Active Calcium Chewable are more than calcium supplements, they are comprehensive aids in the maintenance of healthy bones.
  • In addition to the important cofactors of bone health – magnesium and vitamin D – Calcium Plus contains a proven dosage of calcium, in bioavailable forms, in only four tablets per day, for the promotion of bone health.

Active Calcium Plus and Active Calcium Chewable are laboratory tested, quality guaranteed. Meets British Pharmacopoeia specifications for potency, uniformity and disintegration, where applicable.

Using Active Calcium Plus

Take four (4) Active Calcium Plus tablets daily, preferably with meals.


VITAMIN D3 Item #109

Table of Contents!

 

 It is common knowledge that vitamin D plays an important role in helping the body to absorb calcium and in bone mineralization. However accumulating scientific evidence is proving that vitamin D provide more health benefits than simply bone health. Evidence is emerging that there is wide spread vitamin D deficiency in the broader population. 

Vitamin D is synthesized in the skin after exposure to sunlight, and is also obtained through the diet. However, it is only present in limited number of foods. 

Vitamin D deficiencies can occur when exposure to sunlight is limited or as the body ages, the ability to produce vitamin D is impaired. Vitamin D deficiency during bone development and growth causes rickets among children. In adults, vitamin D deficiency may increase the risk of developing osteoporosis. 

A simple blood test is all that is required to determine your levels which you should check annually. 

Vitamin D for Strong Bones Benefits

  • Numerous scientific studies have shown that calcium plus vitamin D supplementation promotes the growth and maintenance of strong mineral-rich bones.
  • Vitamin D supplementation is highly recommended as a standard preventive measure in osteoporosis management.
  • Vitamin D is essential for the maintenance of calcium homeostasis, supports efficient calcium absorption and is necessary for normal bone mineralization.
  • Calcium and vitamin D supplementation may reduce the risk of osteoporosis. 

Vitamin D and Healthy Muscle Function 

  • Vitamin D deficiency appears to be a risk factor for poor muscle strength and coordination particularly in the elderly.
  • Several clinical trials and meta-analyses were conducted to evaluate vitamin D supplementation with and without calcium.
  • Most studies demonstrated significant benefits particularly in the higher vitamin D doses.
  • Improvement in muscle strength was one among the improvements being measured. This may involve a link between muscle calcium status and function and a link between vitamin D and calcium and neuromuscular performance. 

Vitamin D for Immune Function 

  • 1.25-Dihydroxyvitamin D3 (1.25(OH)2D3), the biologically active form of vitamin D3, not only regulates  bone and calcium metabolism but also exerts other biological activities, including immunomodulation.
  • By binding to its receptor, the vitamin D receptor, 1.25(OH)2D3 regulates the expression of various genes and consequently affects the behavior of different cell types within the immune system.
  • Adequate vitamin D intake is important in maintaining the balance in immune health. 

Why Vitamin D? 

Diet is a secondary source of vitamin D in that most foods contain small amounts of this nutrient. It is estimated that average intake of vitamin D for most Australians is less than 100 IU per day from diet alone, leaving a gap in vitamin D nutrition for those with insufficient sun exposure. 

  • USANA’s new Vitamin D is formulated with maximum strength to help you bridge the vitamin D deficiency gap in your dietary consumption.
  • It is a maximum strength supplement created to combat vitamin D deficiency.
  • It provides you with 1000 IU per tablet to support optimal intake of vitamin D.

Using Vitamin D3

Take one (1) Vitamin D tablet daily, preferably with meals.
