Keeping Kids Emotionally Strong and Healthy

Many kids are heading back to school this month. While back to school can be a stressful time of year, COVID is an additional stressor in kids’ and parents’ lives. Keeping kids healthy, happy, and mentally prepared with innovative ingredients is where NutriScience can help!

Immune Health

As COVID lingers on, staying healthy is still a number one concern. NutriScience offers several clinically studied immune health ingredients that can boost your children’s immune health formulas:


ElderMune®, combines elderberry juice concentrate 65:1 for immune support, with Sunfiber®, a prebiotic digestive fiber with a history of use in children. Elderberry has been studied for its antibacterial and antiviral activity; it has been found to be active against human pathogenic bacteria as well as influenza A and B viruses. ElderMune® is labeled as a dietary supplement for healthy immune support and works great in gummies!

A high purity nutraceutical 1,3 beta-glucan. Beta-1,3/1,6 glucans support healthy immune function by working on the cells of the innate immune defense system to mobilize a complex set of immune defense mechanisms. This enhances the body’s immune response to promote overall health and wellness. BGF-Immune® works well in tablets, gummies, capsules, RTD and beverage formulations. BGF-Immune® has been used in children’s products with great success.

Emotional & Cognitive Health

Emotional wellbeing and cognitive health are always important. In an environment of constant change, as we are all living in right now, stress and anxiety are felt by everyone, even kids.

A high-purity, L-isomer form of the amino acid theanine. It is the only L-theanine that has been the subject of over 200 clinical and scientific studies. Suntheanine® has been shown to promote an alert state of relaxation, without drowsiness, which makes it an excellent addition to products for stress, cognition, memory, relaxation and calming. A landmark study on boys with ADHD found that those taking Suntheanine® demonstrated significantly higher sleep times and sleep efficiency. Suntheanine® improves focus, attention and learning performance, helping children concentrate and learn at their best.

Our family of visionary Lutein Ester and Lutein: Zeaxanthin Complex ingredients. Both Lutein and Zeaxanthin have been shown to benefit children for eye health and cognitive development. A clinical study with XanMax demonstrated a statistically significant increase of 40% in macular pigmentation density, which helps protect the eyes. Lutein and Zeaxanthin have also been shown to enhance brain blood flow in specific areas that support cognitive function. Products for children require unique ingredients and formulations. We can recommend ingredients, formulas and delivery systems to help you develop safe and effective children’s immune, cognitive, and emotional wellbeing products. We are also available to help you with labeling and structure/function claims, which need to meet regulatory requirements and be based on scientific and clinical studies.
