WORRIED ABOUT YOUR KID'S NUTRITION?
OF COURSE YOU ARE.
Keeping yourself healthy is hard enough. Keeping your kids healthy is an even bigger challenge. In fact, many kids today are undernourished and overfed, with vitamin deficiencies, lack of nutrients, and way, way too much sugar. It’s no wonder 1 in 3 kids in the US are considered overweight. Good nutrition is essential for physical and mental health.
The problem may be more serious than you think. Only 13% of parents make sure their kids eat fruits and vegetables every day, 1 in 3 US kids eat fast food daily, and sugar intake is skyrocketing. In fact, the average 4 to 8-year-old consumes approximately 15 teaspoons of added sugar a day. No wonder more than a third of American children are considered overweight!
And then there’s gut health. You know it’s important to keep your own gut healthy, but what about your kid’s? The truth is, your child’s gut can affect everything from their mood to their digestive health to their immune system strength. And with kids being around germs all the time, you need all the help you can get!
It’s a lot to think about, and it’s enough to make any parent feel worried and guilty. Where do you even start when it comes to giving your kids their best chance at a happy, healthy life?

XFACTOR KIDS INGREDIENT GLOSSARY
Vitamin A (as beta carotene and retinyl palmitate):
Vitamin A is a fat-soluble vitamin that plays an important role in skeletal development, healthy vision, immune function, and healthy skin. A beneficial combination of two sources of vitamin A are: retinyl palmitate—a bioavailable form that is more easily absorbed by the body, and beta-carotene—a carotenoid that is converted in the body to retinyl. By using these two sources your body quickly absorbs retinyl palmitate and only converts the amount of beta-carotene needed to ensure your body gets optimal levels of vitamin A.*
Thiamine as Vitamin B1 (as thiamine mononitrate):
Thiamine is an essential water-soluble vitamin. Every cell of the body requires vitamin B1 to form adenosine triphosphate (ATP), which is what your body uses for energy, the metabolism
of carbohydrates, proteins and fats and normal muscle function, including the heart muscle. Thiamin is also required for a healthy nervous system and assists in the production of the
neurotransmitter acetylcholine and gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) and needed for good brain function. Thiamine mononitrate has bio-identical benefits.*
Riboflavin as Vitamin B2 (as riboflavin 5-phosphate):
Riboflavin is a water-soluble vitamin that is an important cofactor for the formation of other B-Vitamins. Riboflavin helps in the release of energy from foods. It supports both the nervous system and normal growth. Riboflavin is in the free form, and must be converted to its active form – riboflavin 5-phosphate – to be utilized by the body. Riboflavin-5-phosphate sodium is considered the most bioactive form of vitamin B2.*

Vitamin K – (as phytonadione [K1] and menaquinone-7 [K2]):
Vitamin K is an essential fat-soluble vitamin. There are several forms of vitamin K – vitamin K1 is present in green leafy vegetables; Vitamin K2 is a more bioavailable form of vitamin K,
that is often missing from western diets. Vitamin K2 is naturally derived and comes directly from the fermentation of Bacillus subtillus natto.*
Vitamin E (as d-alpha tocopherol):
Vitamin E is an essential fat-soluble vitamin that is a powerful immune-boosting antioxidant, and is known to promote cardiovascular health. The natural-derived form of vitamin E,
known as d-alpha tocopherol is the most bioactive and is better absorbed and retained in the body.*
Vitamin D3 (as cholecalciferol):
Vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin that aids in the absorption of calcium and helps maintain normal blood levels of calcium and phosphorus. Vitamin D works with calcium to promote bone density. Vitamin D also contributes to the digestive system, bone and the immune system function. There are several forms of vitamin D but the form primarily utilized by the human body is cholecalciferol (vitamin D3) which is a bioavailable form.*

Folate as Vitamin B9 (as L-methylfolate,calcium, 5-MTHF):
Folate is an essential water-soluble B vitamin. Folate is essential for cell replication and growth assisting in the normal utilization of amino acids and proteins, as well as supporting formation of building blocks of DNA and RNA, which is necessary for all body functions. Folic acid must be converted to its active forms to be used by the body. Furthermore, up to 40-percent of the U.S. population may have a genetic enzyme defect that makes it difficult for them to convert folic acid into active 5-MTHF. *
Vitamin B12 (as Methylcobalamin):
Vitamin B12 is a water-soluble B vitamin. Vitamin B12 is essential for metabolism of fats and carbohydrates and the synthesis of proteins. It is essential that vegetarians consume
a vitamin B12 supplement to maintain optimal health. Vitamin B12, when ingested, is stored in the liver and other tissues for later use. Most vitamin B12 supplements contain
cyanocobalamin, however the liver must first “detoxify” the cyanide molecule to form methylcobalamin from the cyanocobalamin. Methylcobalamin is already in the bioactive,
tissue-ready form. Methylcobalamin is the most bioavailable form that is used most efficiently by the body.*
Biotin (as d-biotin):
Biotin is an essential water-soluble B vitamin that assists in metabolism of fatty acids and utilization of B vitamins. It is important in energy producing steps during metabolism in the
cells of the body. d-Biotin is the naturally occurring and biologically active form of Biotin; among 8 different isomers, only d-biotin has vitamin activity.*
Vitamin B6 (as pryridoxine hydrochloride and pyridoxal 5-phosphate):
Vitamin B6 is necessary for the transformation and utilization of amino acids for many functions in the body, including energy production and neurotransmitter synthesis. Pryridoxine must first be converted to pyridoxal 5-phosphate to be utilized by the body, a process that takes place in the liver. Individuals with compromised liver function have difficulty making this conversion and consequently may be at risk of a vitamin B6 deficiency. Pyridoxal 5-Phosphate is the most bioactive form of vitamin B6.*
Pantothenic acid (as d-calcium pantothenate):
Panthothenic acid is a water-soluble vitamin that is a precursor in the synthesis of coenzyme A, which is essential to many biochemical reactions that sustain life and play a role in the breakdown of fats and carbohydrates for energy. d-Calcium panthothenate is a salt that allows for better absorption than pantothenic acid in the digestive tract.*
