Brain development during the first years of your child’s life is crucial for their foundation for learning. But the brain is just one factor. A healthy body can help your child stays ready for learning.
Growing minds need proper nutrition and sensory stimulation.
Stimulation, the active interaction your child has with you as a parent and their environment, helps strengthen connections in their brain, encouraging developmental milestones.

DHA is a vital fatty acid in the brain and it is a primary structural component of brain tissue, which plays a role in effective communication between brain cells. DHA is one of the nutrients that are building blocks of the brain; it helps build the brain and keep brain cells flexible. DHA is essential for brain growth and development, as well as brain function. DHA together with other nutrients such as Vitamin B, Iron, Zinc and Iodine help support your child’s overall development in key development areas, such as cognitive, motor, emotional and communication skills. These key development areas help contribute to your child’s overall continuous learning.

Beta-Glucan is a polysaccharide naturally found in baker’s yeast and other natural foods. Yeast Beta-Glucan has the ability to enhance immune defenses, and may complement other nutrients to promote stronger immune health. Yeast Beta-Glucan helps promote better immunity for your child’s continuous learning opportunities.

PDX stands for Polydextrose, a dietary fiber that feeds beneficial bacteria throughout the large intestine. It supports the balance of the gut system by stimulating growth and activity of beneficial bacteria (gut flora)6, which benefits your child's immune system7.
PDX and GOS (Galactooligosaccharide) work together to foster the growth of good bacteria and promote digestive health. The unique blend of PDX and GOS promotes frequent and softer stools in children, and thus may help reduce the risk of occasional constipation8.
