Kids Supplements: A Consumer Guide
Your child’s health routine can be as extensive and targeted as your own routine. Their young bodies and minds do have a specific set of nutritional needs for development, vision, immunity, cognition, and gut health.
If you're left wondering if your picky eater or school aged child is getting enough nutrients in the day, you are not alone. Organika has formulated a kid’s natural supplement lineup; which covers everything from multivitamins, zinc and probiotics to specific formulations for vision and cognition.
Give your kids a healthy head start.
DIET IS THE FOUNDATION TO YOUR FAMILY'S HEALTH
It’s no secret that due to time constraints, the world of quick, packaged and processed convenience foods came to be. Convenience and processed foods are often void of nutrients, in comparison to eating whole foods. In addition, sugar, carbonated beverages, and junk food can leach vitamins and minerals away from growing bodies.
Eating a whole foods diet is key!
Supplementation may help to boost overall health.
Boost Your Kid's Overall Health
Multivitamins can help fill nutritional gaps.
Picky eaters may not always be getting the required amount of vitamins or minerals that the growing body needs at a young age.
Additionally, if your child has a preexisting condition or requires medication, there may be concern for nutrients being depleted.
Always consult with a health care practitioner before adding supplements to your children’s routine.
Organika Li'l Kids Multi Vitamin Spray contains a broad range of vitamins to provide your child with a solid base.
Vitamin A, which contributes to the health and strength of the surface of the eyes, mucous membranes and skin surrounding the eyes. These serve as vigilant barriers against bacteria and viruses ,reducing risk of eye and respiratory infections.
For developing immune systems, there are vitamins C and Vitamin D which are vital for antimicrobial response, a key part of immune protection. Vitamin C strengthens immune defenses and keeps the immune system responsive. It is also a powerful antioxidant, a key ingredient in combating damage from free radicals and preventing oxidative stress. Oxidative stress can lead to asthma, diabetes and inflammatory disorders like eczema.
Vitamins B6 and B12 are included to support energy metabolism and iodine for a healthy thyroid. Thyroid hormones are key for healthy growth and development, as well as heart, muscle and digestive function. Supporting the thyroid is vital for cognitive development and maintenance of strong bones.

Kids Liquid Zinc with Vitamin C supports the immune system and encourages the body’s natural ability to metabolize nutrients.

Probiotics and Immune Health
WHY GUT HEALTH IS KEY TO IMMUNE HEALTH
Antibody production and its abundance is based on healthy ratios of probiotic bacteria in the gut. 70% of our immune system is housed here!
Your baby’s microbiome development started at birth, passed on from the mother, and as a result, their immune health starts to develop. The proliferation of good gut bacteria supports a healthy microbiome by ensuring the ratios of “good” to “bad” bacteria stay in check. Organika's Baby Probiotic Drops With Vitamin D should be a part of your child’s ongoing bowel and immune support. It can reduce the occurrence of colic in breastfed infants and provide the gut microbiome with diverse microorganisms.
This is also another supplement that has won the Parent-tested Parent-approved seal!
As your child grows, continue to support their gut flora’s delicate balance with our easy-to-take Kids Probiotic Chewable Tablets. These delicious, tropical pineapple-flavoured tablets contain 1 billion CFU of clinically proven live probiotic strains. Multiple strains diversify our good gut bacteria and strengthen immune protection.

Support your Child’s Cognitive Health
Supporting brain health with Kids Liquid Plant Based DHA will have your little ones meeting all developmental milestones with ease! Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) are omega-3 fatty acids that work together to assist in the formation of neurotransmitters and reduce inflammation that impedes healthy function.
DHA supports the growth and development of their whole nervous system. EPA supports cognitive function and reduces inflammatory disorders throughout the body. Obtaining omega-3 fatty acids from food can be challenging, and many children aren’t reaching daily requirements. EPA and DHA are formulated here in specific ratios for maximum benefits.
Organika Kids Liquid Plant Based DHA comes in delicious Lemon Burst flavour and are vegan-friendly!
Our DHA and EPA, omega-3 fatty acids are sourced from a marine algae called Schizochytrium. Schizochytrium is a freshwater microalgae that is rich in DHA. Fish get their EPA and DHA from microalgae. This plant-based supplement bypasses the consumption of fish and makes for clean and potent omega-3 support!
Support Your Child’s Vision
Organika omega-3 supplements help prevent dry eyes and other symptoms associated with computer vision syndrome. Constant movement, focusing and reduced blinking associated with screen time leads to computer vision syndrome and eventual degeneration. Omega-3s support the balance of oil, mucus and water required in and around the eyes to maintain even and consistent lubrication.
To support and protect your child’s vision, we recommend pairing Kids Liquid Plant-Based DHA with our Kids Vision Chewable Tablets for increased protection!
Organika Kids Vision Chewable Tablets contain 2000 IUs of vitamin A and 800 mcg of Beta-carotene per serving. This helps maintain healthy eyesight and improves nighttime vision.
Vitamin A plays a vital role in vision.
There are two forms of vitamin A; plant-derived and animal-derived. Animal sourced vitamin A is called retinol or “preformed” vitamin A, which is ready for the body to use. Good sources of retinol vitamin A include beef, chicken liver, whole milk and cheese. Plant-derived vitamin A is known as “provitamin A” carotenoids, which are converted in the body. Good sources include carrots, sweet potato, spinach and kale. Beta-carotene is one of the most common and effective versions of provitamin A carotenoid. If your child isn’t getting these sources, a supplement may be the answer.
Support Your Child’s Growth, Bones and Teeth
Organika’s Kids Liquid Calcium Plus with Vitamins D3 & K2 is designed for a growing child’s everyday needs. Available in a delicious mixed berry flavour, the liquid format is ideal for optimal absorption and convenience. The formulation is for all ages from 1+ (with different doses recommended).

Vitamins D3 & K2 work together to support calcium in the building of healthy bones, they increase the absorption of calcium in the bones, and transport it to the areas it needs to be. Vitamin D also supports immune function and overall health. Magnesium supports healthy nerves, muscles, heart, as well as helping with energy and focus. Zinc supports many functions in the body including immune, skin, and intestinal health.
