Dosage Form and Benefits
K2KidsVITAL™ Soft Chew leverage the ConCordix® Soft Chew innovation to bring together the kid-friendly benefits of vitamins K2, D3 and Omega-3 in one convenient dosage format. K2 MK-7 and Omega-3 are vital to healthy growth and development in children, and neither is common in child-targeted multivitamins. The ConCordix® Soft Chew technology combines oil and water so lubles in one fruity-flavored, easy-to-swallow soft chew that is tailor-made for kids. K2KidsVITAL™ Soft Chews combine vitamins K2 and D3 for healthy bone development and Omega-3 for healthy cognitive function. Both K2 and Omega-3 also set the stage for a healthy heart later in life. The ConCordix® Soft Chew even shows better uptake of Omega-3 compared to traditional soft gel capsules. K2KidsVITAL™ is a perfect ‘one-stop’ dosage supplement for three important nutrients not common in children’s multivitamins.
K2KidsVITAL™ Soft Chews are a brilliant solution that serve two market needs. The first are the special health requirements of children. Vitamin D3 helps ensure that calcium is available for the building of strong bones and teeth. Vitamin K2 activates the osteocalcin proteins that integrate calcium into bones and teeth. K2 and D3, along with calcium, are critical for growing children in these bone-development years. K2 is generally deficient in diets, and a growing awareness of D3 deficiency is a concern. Omega-3 has been investigated for cognitive and brain development, and EFSA agrees Omega-3 is important for the maintenance of normal brain function and vision. K2KidsVITAL™ provides these three important nutrients in one convenient, child-friendly dosage format.
K2KidsVITAL™ Soft Chews serve a second market need in the one-stop dosing of these important nutrients. Children’s multivitamins rarely include vitamin K2, requiring supplemental daily dosage forms in addition a multivitamin tablet, gum or chew. Omega-3 must also be supplemented separately in addition to a multivitamin. By combining these vital nutrients in one dosage form, K2KidsVITAL™ provides the perfect complement to a daily children’s multivitamin.
