HEALTHY, TASTY CHEWABLES

For many parents, the need for supplementation is obvious. Fast food, a mainstay for so many children, simply does not provide the nutrition that young people need. While supplements cannot replace a good diet, PERQUE Life Guard Chewables, formulated for children, lowers the risks associated with a poor diet.*

There are two sets of criteria that can be used to evaluate a supplement, which are not always satisfied in commercial brands.* PERQUE Life Guard Chewables meets both of the following needs:

Parents are concerned with what is in the supplement and how it will benefit their child.*

Children are primarily concerned with the taste and texture of what is being put into their mouths. Contrary to popular belief, pleasant taste can be achieved without the empty calories of refined sugar. PERQUE Life Guard Chewables are flavored only with a small amount of Sucanat (natural sugar cane juice) for a unique and pleasing flavor.* Many children's multi-vitamin/mineral formulas contain only a few (usually 10 - 11) essential nutrients and have very poor bioavailability.*

PERQUE Life Guard Chewables includes 24 essential nutrients. Only the PERQUE complete formula includes the following important nutrients for children that others leave out:*

  • Chromium aids in sugar metabolism.*
  • Silica promotes bone, hair and skin, and connective tissue health.*
  • Manganese is important for sugar metabolism and bone and connective tissue health.*
  • Biotin promotes proper fat, protein, and sugar metabolism

What you don't find in supplements is often just as important as what you do find. PERQUE Life Guard Chewables is free of iodine, iron, and copper. These nutrients should always be taken separately. When included in a multiple formula, they can oxidize the antioxidants and cause free radical damage. Additionally, iron should always be taken separately as it competes with calcium and zinc.*

SOME ADULTS PREFER CHEWABLES

PERQUE Life Guard Chewables are not only complete nutrient plan for kids, but offers a viable alternative for adults as well. Many adults do not like to swallow pills. For individuals who are in need of detoxification and are required to build up their dosage slowly, PERQUE Life Guard Chewables offers greater control in dosing.*

SETTING A HIGHER STANDARD

PERQUE Life Guard Chewables are an exceptionally pure product, using only pharmaceutical, reagent-grade ingredients. These ingredients are combined in biologically correct proportions, with the natural transporters and cofactors necessary for maximum activity. This means much more active uptake and utilization.*

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) does not regulate the activity of vitamins. Consequently, vitamins need not be manufactured to pharmaceutical standards or tested for bioavailability. In fact, the tablet binders and fillers that can overwhelm or contaminate active ingredients are often not listed on the label. This is a particularly important issue for individuals who are sensitive.
